Today’s Picture of the Day (POD) at RichardArmitageNet.Com is dedicated to RavenRoseBeetle:
Here is your Graphic of the Day:
Another first. This is the first time Ricky Deeming from the pilot episode of George Gently has been requested for the month and it’s also my first Ricky siggie.
In this scene, Ricky is rather static so I wanted to add some motion because his character as the leader of a biker gang represents rebellion and anarchy. Therefore I incorporated the promo picture below:
I added a motion blur to the motorcycle image and I extended the headlight very simply with the Smudge tool.
The font is called 60s Pop and I chose it for a few reasons. One, the show is set in the 1960s, also it reminded me of curvy roads, and finally it loaned itself well to a motion blur. I even took the letter “i” and put it on a separate layer, rotated it, and blurred it to add to the headlight to provide a sense of cohesion between the images and the text amidst all the anarchy. 😉
The POD was very good quality but I applied the Nostalgia filter from Xero Graphics to give Ricky an added touch of grittiness.
At the last second I decided to include a bit of a wheel from another image for Ricky’s motorcycle:
I’m still having fun! This graphic was a quickie…it probably took me longer to write up the blogpost than to create the siggie. 😀
