Introduction: How To: Make a Worhal Painting in Photoshop CS6 & CC

In this Instructable, I will show you how to make one of Andy Worhal's most famous painting design using Adobe Photoshop CS6/CC

Step 1: Materials

What you'll need is Adobe Photoshop CS6 or Adobe Photoshop CC and a picture that you can fit onto 4 good sized squares. In this tutorial I used 3x2 inch squares.

Step 2: Cropping the Picture You Will Use

This is completely optional. If you want it to resemble Worhal's painting closer, than you'll want to crop out everything BUT the head and shoulders.

Step 3: Making the Canvas

What you'll want to do is make a new canvas. I made one that's 11x11 in. If you'll want bigger, i reccommend odd numbers such as 15x15, 21x21, and so on so you can get a spacing. If you don't want any spacing than do even numbers so you can get it in the middle.

Step 4: Adding Ruler Guides

Ruler guides are VERY helpful when making these a they help you properly and accurately align the pictures. Align them until they make a guide you find perfect.

Step 5: Align, Duplicate, and Crop

What you'll want to do now is duplicate the photos into 4 photos to fill the 4 squares. Align the two bottom ones so that the heads hit the ruler. Than crop the picture so it fits the heads

Step 6: Adding the Style

To get Worhal's style, what you'll need to do is add a filter to it. Go to your filter gallery and go to Artistic>Paint Daubs. Than customize it however you like.

Step 7: The Background

Now time to get those blocks colored. Remember the rulers? Well the'll help here to. Get the Rectangle Marquee Tool and select a block. Once it's selected, fill it with a desired color. Do this to all other blocks.

Step 8: The Faces

Now time to get those pretty little faces colored! Select one of the faces in your layer tabs, than go to layer>New Adjustment Layer>Hue/Saturation. click it than check the box that says "Use Previous Layer To Create a Clipping Mask." Once you do that, choose your desired Hue and Saturation for the face. Do this to all the other faces.
