Graphic a Day in May
There are several Richard Armitage fan sites out there and they all have something unique to offer. The one I visit daily is http://www.richardarmitagenet.com for many reasons, but one of the biggest is its interactivity. Not only is there news about Richard Armitage, but also polls, fan-made graphics & other works of art, and the Picture of the Day (POTD). No matter how busy I am, I always manage to at least take a peek at the picture. Sometimes the POTD is dedicated for a birthday or it was requested by a fan. There is a nice variety too. For instance, one day the picture might be of Lucas North and the next day of Richard Armitage at the 2007 BAFTAs and the day after that of Lee from Cold Feet.
Since I am going to have a less busy schedule in real life after tomorrow, I decided to hone my Photoshop skills for the merry month of May. As such, I am going to create one graphic every day in May. So I don’t focus on all John Porter all the time, I will be basing each graphic off of the POTD.
This seems a good day to introduce this topic since I already have a signature graphic using today’s POTD.
I took two of my textures/backgrounds from the animated movie The Secret of Kells and the font is Trajan Pro which is included in Adobe Creative Studio. Below are all my layer images, some of which I used twice and I also applied different blending modes in Photoshop.
Since the purpose of the graphic a day is to learn more about Photoshop, some of my work may be experimental. If you would like to use any of my graphics, feel free to do so. I don’t watermark my signatures so credit to bccmee would be appreciated.
I look forward to seeing you in May. Happy April, everyone!
