In this video, you will choose a photo for your pop art and add the photo to your drawing.

A photo is a good model for your pop art because you are representing a real-life image in a unique way.

Your pop art will still look like the original photo in some ways, but you will add your own ideas and techniques to modify it and make it a work of art all on your own.

To begin, select a photo to base your art on.

This might be a photo of a person, Food or another object, An animal, or anything else you can think of.

For this lesson, choose a photo with some details but not too many.

You can always create more complex pop art in the future!

If you have a good photo saved on your computer, or in your Photos or Drive, you can insert it into your drawing.

If you do not already have a photo you want to use, search the web for a photo.

Search for the image, Review the search results, And make sure you have the right to use the image.

Then, insert the photo into your drawing.

Next, crop the photo if you choose to.

If you only want to use one part of the photo, cropping it allows you to use only the part you need.

Center your photo on the canvas. This will make your pop art look like it’s in frame.

Adjust the size of the photo so that it fills as much of the canvas as possible.

Now, it’s your turn: Choose a photo for your pop art, Insert the photo, And crop, center, and resize your photo.
