Happy Anniversary, Alicat!
Since she tweeted that it’s her anniversary, I figured it’s fair game to say it on my blog. 😉
Sir Guy of Gisborne is today’s Picture of the Day (POD) at RichardArmitageNet.Com. Hmmm, I wonder who chose this pic, LOL!
Here is your Graphic of the Day:
This POD is one of my favorite screencaps. Guy’s face is so perfect; no wonder the camera loved him. What a great close-up! Then he takes off his glove, which is best appreciated in motion, but if you’ve seen it at least once then the still image will do. To this day, I wonder whose decision it was for Guy to remove his glove with his teeth in Robin Hood series 1, episode 7.
For this sig, I cut out the glove-biting screencap and placed it slightly overlapping the POD. Also I removed the girl’s hair which partially blocked Guy’s neck and shoulder from view. I wanted to have a bit of texture in keeping with the leather theme. After merging the layers, I applied the Sunset, Supersmooth and Tekstya filters with the free Photoshop plug-ins from Xero Graphics. Next I added a Curves adjustment layer to brighten the faces up a bit.
For the text, I used the Andy font and I replaced the letter “o” with a heart which I made with the shapes tool, then I added a stroke (outline) to all the characters. I applied a drop shadow to the heart so it would stand out a little bit. I enlarged the letter “G” and set it to 0% fill so it would just show the letter’s outline. You can probably guess why I chose that particular font.
Here is the other screencap I snaffled from the Robin Hood Album at RichardArmitageNet.Com:
Whoever coined the phrase “Glove Love” deserves a Pulitzer Prize!
Bonus graphic: Alicat over at RichardArmitageNet.com used a screencap from the same scene to create this incredible wallpaper several years ago. It still stands out as one of most outstanding wallpapers I’ve ever seen!
