Idea for a project
    #1914452 - 09/14/03 03:14 AM (13 years, 2 months ago)



here's the idea, I take a picture (see above) and make it into like 4 colors or so, and blow it up, make stencils of each color, and srpay paint each one, resulting in what should be an interesting spray paint portrait. sound good? any suggestions, tips?

also, if anyone has any hi-res portraits they could share I'd appreciate it alot, preferably just facial or bust shots, but anything would be appreciated, thanks everyone.

It would be cool. If you are an artist and are going for something that's personal and orginal it's already been done over and over. Warhol.

I suggest digitally constructing your images in photoshop at a very high resolution. Taking those files to a print shop and going from there to make your stencils. All you really need is like two high quality, durable stencils, paint or spraypaint of your choice and that's it.

Look forward to seeing it if you go through.

I thought of something that might be cool. Get a square room and paint it all white and put a stencil on each wall, covering it up completely, then you put this bong on a platform in the center of the room.

this is pretty much my idea, I've blown it up pretty big, and I've separated each color into a different layer, so I can just go to kinkos and print each one out, then I'll glue them to some carboard, and cut out all the right parts.

oh and as for your second idea, heh, just a little out of my means, and very.....modern art

I've done something like this in Photoshop, but it was an abstract work..

this is a cool idea - be sure to show us what you end up with :smile: :smile:

like the 'cutout' filter in PS, right? only physically seperating each color level into a stencil?

I tried Wal-mart today, since I was in the area and they had DICK!

so if anyone else is looking, dont go there :P

I'll check out my local home improvement stores when I get my stencils made.
