Vintage Pop Art Mon, 15 Apr 2013 12:42:33 +0000 This tutorial will get you ready for our next project.  It is rather long and you have to download some of the artwork that is used.

Note, when it says “render” the image, it simply means cut the image out and paste it on a new layer in your project.

I’ve added some notes, here from my version.

Here is more vintagegimp that should take you to my pdf file.
