Step 1: Find the Picture That You Want to Turn Into a POSTER
Find your favorite image or picture on the internet or in a magazine. Print it or cut it out!
Step 2: Get All the Necessary TOOLS
Gather your needed tools before starting. You will need at the least, poster paper and a pencil or pen. We suggest you have pens, tape, a ruler, and something to color with, but its not necessary.
1. Roll of Poster Paper
3. Liner Pens
4. Chalk and/or Pastels
5. OR your favorite water colors
6. A Picture of your Favorite Art
Step 3: Now You Can Begin Marking Up the Papers
Get your ruler and pencil and mark up your chosen image and poster paper. You can draw heavy lines on the chosen image but may want to only draw very light ones on the poster paper. If you want the new poster picture 3 times larger then draw 1" lines on the chosen image and 3" lines on the poster paper.
TIP: If you add ruler marks and lines at 1" in size all around your chosen picture it will help you to draw everything in proportion with your poster. After that you may want to draw 2-3" line marks, lightly, on your poster paper so the proportions will be correct with the smaller image and make your poster look beautiful.
If you are good at free handing then forget about this!
