Today’s Picture of the Day (POD) at RichardArmitageNet.Com is dedicated to RavenRoseBeetle:
Here is your Graphic of the Day:
This is another first. The first time Captain Ian Macalwain has been requested this month and also my first-ever Ultimate Force siggie.
Have to admit, I was laughing so hard when making this siggie that it was difficult to draw the hearts! I have no shame and no pride, so I would probably make a lousy soldier. Bet you thought I wouldn’t dare? But yes, I did dot the “i” with a heart, LOL!
This was a beautiful screencap so I didn’t have to mess around and I also chose not to use a lot of filters to cover up Ian’s face. After clipping out the figure from the POD, all I added was a curves adjustment layer to brighten it up a bit.
As soon as I thought of the “out of uniform” idea it was an obvious choice to find a picture of Ian in a towel. Unfortunately, he was too blurry in the full body shots because he is walking across the room, so I screencapped this particular pose from my DVD.
Then I used the Match Color feature in Photoshop to get the skin tones to match a bit better. I layered some various textures in the background with different blend modes and opacity levels. One of the textures is terry cloth and another is the green dotted wallpaper background from my screencap.
The font I used is SteveHandwriting to which I added a stroke. I hand-drew the hearts and applied the same stroke effect to them.
Yes, I do like a man in uniform. And out of uniform. 😉
