I was looking at pop art earlier and thought, hey, I could do that with Sims 3! This is my first attempt and all you professional and/or gifted artists out there, please don't diss me. :lol: If you'd like to give it a try it's fun and I'd love to see your results!

    How do you make pop art?

    @king_of_simcity7 I took a photo in Sims, then color graded and added filters with Gimp, which is a free Photoshop-like program. It does all kinds of cool things. Googling 'pop art' will give you an idea of where to start with your original photo and the art style. I'll post better directions and my original picture later. :)

    @Mikezumi Thank you! :kiss:

    This is the original picture:

    I cropped it, used a color tool to color grade it then added one of the cartoon filters and another one that I don't remember. I'm actually doing this as an art work project for my house! Yeah, those dots have to go. I'm going to change that to a pastel.

    This is the look I'm going for except with sims instead of real peeps:

    Anyone game?!

    Another one. This has even more of a pop art feel I think, though I think I like the first one better. Not sure.

    I worked on this for, frankly, an absurd amount of time. Unfortunately, my Huion Kamvas 13 isn't here, so wobbly mouse drawing it it. :lol:

    @ZeeGee I definitely prefer your second attempt.
  • cocococo Posts: 2,675 Member
    Fun thread! :smile:
    I spent too much time doing this and my drawing skills with a mouse are terrible but it was still a lot of fun :lol:

    @coco that looks like a lot of hard work but it was worth it. I love what you've done. And it's good to see you posting as I haven't seen you around for ages.

    @Emily4331 I missed seeing your picture - it looks great too.
  • cocococo Posts: 2,675 Member
    @Karritz Thank you I'm happy that you like it. I can easily waste half the day playing around on Photoshop. I haven't been posting much this year because of work stuff but things are different now and I'm trying to get back into the swing of it :smile:

    Here's another picture.

    Am I the only one who keeps getting images of Milton the Toaster in his head whenever he sees this thread has been posted to?

    Igazor, it might be time to have your glasses checked again... :angry:

    Yes, that's probably true.

    I don't know why my brain keeps telling me, "hey, you know what'd be a great thing to do when you have no working drawing tablet? LINE ART!" but here we are. :lol:

    @igazor Time for the thread, "Show me your Sims 3 Pop-Tarts!" :tongue: Now I really wish I hadn't passed up the Wild Berry Pop-Tarts at the grocery store this week. :(

    @Emily4331 I don't know what the thing is that isn't there but that is stunning! I love the texture you used on her face and clothes and she is beautiful, of course, as are all your sims.

    @coco
    Those are so cool! Love the textures and the speech bubbles with sims icons of what they're thinking! True sims pop art. I think your drawing skills are awesome. And both the sims are gorgeous but wow, that dude! Sim crush.

    @igazor Finally I stopped craving cinnamon rolls and now you've got me craving pop tarts. I'm not going to be able to fit into my clothes when I'm finally allowed out of the house. :) And love that web page, it's pop tart pop art. :lol:

    ETA: @Emily4331 Just noticed the last one! Your line art is awesome and love that pic.

    Flame, those who follow my story will meet her in the next chapter. :smiley: or the one after. :lol: I took a few liberties with a picture I took last night. It's a little dark for pop art after I googled it, but, I like it. I'm not very good at playing with paintbrushes and making it blend. :open_mouth:
