Hi again! Hope you’re having a great week.
Welcome to the 8th graphic in May. Our screencap was contributed by Judit. It features the adorable Richard Armitage reading the CBeebies story I’m Not Going Out There. Thank you, Judit!
By the way, all five of Richard Armitage’s CBeebies stories are available at RichardArmitageNet.Com: http://www.richardarmitagenet.com/downloads/153-cbeebies.html
Here’s your screencap:
And here’s your graphic:
First of all, I fired up the song recommended by Judit: “Sunshine” by Gabrielle. I cut out Richard Armitage and his chair and placed them against a black background and I added a very slight gray drop shadow. Then I applied some effects to change the skin tone and used the Replace Color command to change the chair from green to blue.
When I thought I was done, I decided to try a blue background and a yellow chair. I liked this effect because the background looked like a daytime or dusk sky and the chair looked like a combination sun and moon. I added the tiniest bit of “noise” using the Filter > Noise > Add Noise command set at 1%.
Here’s the second graphic:
I don’t usually make two versions of my graphics but today is an exception. Which one do you like more? I also made one other color change. Can you see it?
Thanks again for all your input and I’ll see you tomorrow!
P.S. What is your wish?
