Hey Tombow friends! This is Jennie and I love pop art! This week, the Tombow Design Team is using famous artists as inspiration. I chose Roy Lichtenstein. Pop Art comes from popular themes like television, music, food, comics, etc. Roy Lichtenstein was inspired by comic strips and advertisements. He used primary colors and dots. I can’t wait to share my process with you!
- Tombow MONO J Drawing Pencils
- Watercolor Paper
- Small Water Brush
- Tombow Dual Brush Pens
- Tombow MONO Drawing Pens
Use the Tombow Dual Brush Pens to watercolor the image. Put color directly on the shadows of the image. Use lighter colors near the shadows. For the lighter parts, I scribbled with the Tombow Dual Brush Pens on a Tombow Blending Palette. I picked up the color with the Small Water Brush.
Use the Tombow MONO Drawing Pens to outline the image. I used Drowning Girl as inspiration for this piece. You can see it in the blue hair and the tears. Tears are often used as a theme in Roy Lichtenstein’s paintings. If you are interested in another art movement, you can check out this Cubism inspired illustration I made. I also did a tutorial on how to create pop art using your photos. This is a great technique for those that haven’t practiced drawing.
I hope you enjoyed this quick tutorial and art lesson!
