Transcript of How to Paint Like Roy Lichtenstein

Step One
Find a panel in a comic strip that you really like. Preferably one with explosions, or a crying woman.
Get your materials. You'll need some paint in primary colors, and a big canvas.
Take the comic book panel and slice it so that only a few details are showing. Perhaps a gun, or a person's face.
Step Four
Copy the outline of your cropped comic strip onto the canvas using a pencil. If there are speech bubbles, make sure you change the text slightly to make it more mysterious.

Step Five
Paint skin, lips, and eyes in using Ben-Day dots. Paint hair and clothes in a solid color. With inanimate objects, you can choose whether or not to use Ben-Day dots.
Step Six
Paint the outlines and text in black.
A REALLY big canvas.
Reality check...
Okay, now if you actually tried this,
you'll know that it's not that easy
to paint like Lichtenstein. The Ben-Day dots are actually really hard to get right, and painting a picture that looks like a computer print
takes a lot of practice and skill.

But, of course, that doesn't mean you can't give it a go :)
