Faux Lichtenstein Effect

Inspired by the American pop artist Roy Lichtenstein (1923-1997), this technique is called faux lichtenstein.  While not carefully painted on to the canvas by hand, these thousands of tiny dots give the same effect as the artist’s original paintings.  Roy taught art and drawing most of his life, and was particularly well-known for his comic strips, advertising, and graphic arts – mixing his fine art studies with commercial art.

Original Photograph

This piece started with an original photograph of my kitty Tyler, and was refined in Photoshop to give the faux lichtenstein effect.  Modern and compelling, the effect gives a very unique look.  It won’t be for everyone, but does demonstrate the range of possibilities with Photoshop.

What do you think?
