Today’s Picture of the Day (POD) at RichardArmitageNet.Com is dedicated to CDoart:
Here is your Graphic of the Day:
This is a beautiful screencap and I’ve used it “as is” for a wallpaper in the past. While I was tempted to leave this POD alone without any Photoshopping, that would be cheating. No worries, I soldiered on and made a siggie. 😀
As usual, I clipped out the POD first thing. Today I decided to go gritty. For that, I used a really cool blue painting by a modern-day Impressionist painter named Franziska San Pedro. This is just the small portion of the entire painting which I used as my siggie background.
I wanted the to keep the design and texture of the painting, but the colors were too bright and cheerful so I used the Color Replace command and chose browns, greens and grays.
Then I added the following watercolor texture and changed the layer style to Subtract. I placed this over the POD layer and masked out (erased) part of it so only John Porter’s clothes and not his face would look mottled. I call it the new camouflage. 😉
When I saw that the background looked like a hillside, I was reminded of the scene when Porter and Gerry Baxter were running from the drone in Strike Back so I incorporated that screencap from RichardArmitageNet.Com. I cut out the figures and added a drop shadow.
Finally I added the text using the Zombie-Noize font. The quote “Nothing is ever over” is from Strike Back.
That quote reminds me that A Graphic a Day in May is half-way over! Have a great Sunday, everybody.
