I was just wondering how to get an image like this:




Into the layers for each color so that you can make screens to overlap each color. (i hope i make sense) Is there any tutorials for this? I tried on paint shop pro but can't seem to figure out a way...Do i need photo shop or something?

Im not too sure about this. But since its a pretty simple image, couldnt you just do two separate stencils? one for the background/blue part and one of the man? then do the background bit, let it dry and then add the man??

Just a suggestion

you *could* go on using paintshop or photoshop and oh so carefully fill in the areas you dont want in each version. you see what i mean? for when your making the blue stencil, eyedrop the exact blue from those splotches, then fill in the man (except where he overlaps into the white, then fill those parts in with white), and for when doing the man, just make all the blue parts white.

that;s what i would do. if you get a better/easier way to do it, do share!!

To get the man alone: increase brightness/contrast, then reduce to two colors.

To get the circles alone, as suggested: white out the parts where he sticks off the blue then fill him in with blue.

If your color palette is similar to the picture, it will be really easy!

I would just make one stencil of the blue background (ignore the man and the part where his gun/feet hang over).  And one of the man (I think the colors are different enough that you can follow his outline without removing the blue part).

When you go to stencil it, just get the cowboy lined up where you want him and go...  The blue paint won't show through the black.

However, stenciling a light colored cowboy on top of a dark background would be a lot more difficult...you'd have to cut the cowboy shape out of the background as well....or the paint would show through.

Hope that made sense/helps!  Good luck!
