I think this original tut will have you all thinking. In art, my class has been doing a lot of non-objective (abstract) works. I LOVE abstract design, so I started experimenting with my own Op Art. Afterr a few days, I came across a really cool design type that has literally infinate possibilities. This type of Op Design is super easy to make and experiment with, and turns out looking really cool. I usually use a pen to make these, but pencils work too. I was going to make this tut longer, but I decided not to. I hope you have fun learning how to make an op design with this tut. Please rate, comment, and post the finished design! Happy drawing!

# How to Create Your Own Op Design

## STEP 1.

Start by drawing three geometric shapes.(Geometric shapes are shapes that have certain requierments, ex. a rectangle) I chose a circle, a triangle, and a rectangle, but you can do whatever you want. I chose Geometric shapes because once we get to coloring, it will be a whole lot easier.

## STEP 2.

Draw five more shapes to connect the first shapes. As long as they're geometric, there are no rules.

## STEP 3.

This might look overwhelming at first, but don't worry. All you have to do is add about 8 to 10 more shapes that all overlap with something.

## STEP 4.

Locate your empty space. (The emty space on mine is shown in blue) The empty space is where there are no shapes or overlaps.

## STEP 5.

Any area that touches the empty space has to be filled in with black. This doesn't count overlaps. Those areas should remain white.

## STEP 6.

Now you may notice that it doesn't look quite right. This is because some areas are surrounded by white spaces. I placed a red dot in each area like that on mine.

## STEP 7.

Well, you probably guessed it! Now we'll fill those areas in. Remember to keep a steady hand so that the areas you want to keep white stay like that.

## STEP 8.

Now please allow me to point out some mistakes that you might make. I've made these mistakes, so you have a primary source. The blue arrow is pointing at two black areas next to each other. The red arrow is pointing to a white area that's touching the empty space. Both of these mistakes are bad. If you start to notice this happening, STOP. If you continue, A huge chain reaction will occur, and the finished product won't look as good as you planned.

## STEP 9.

This is completely optional. If you want, you can color in the white areas and the empty areas. My reccomendation would be to use a medium color for theempty area and a bright color (highlighters) for the white areas. Once you're satisfied, you're done! Now go and experiment on your own!
