Picture of the Day, 25 May 2011

Here is your Graphic of the Day:

Sir Guy Arches

I rewatched this scene and remembered the cat and mouse game between Guy and the sheriff, which was instigated by Prince John. It was interesting how Guy of Gisborne barely says a word. I made a screencap of Guy in profile to add to the siggie because he looks delicious from all angles.

Guy Smirk Screencap

I kept the arches and added more candles to the scenery. For the brownish-golden color, I applied the Glamour and Fall Colors filters with the virtualPhotographer plug-in from optikVerve labs. I wonder if it’s a Canadian or Aussie or UK firm based on the spelling of “glamour.”  😉  Using a large soft brush, I added a glow to the candles to give a hazy dreamy feel.

For this graphic, I also focused in on Guy’s smirk. Because of the smirk and the arches, I wanted the text to bend.  To do this, I put each word on a separate layer and used the Warp Text tool. I gave the word “Sir” a positive arch and the word “Guy” a negative arch. I couldn’t resist turning the letter “i” into another candle too!  The font is Gill Sans Ultra Bold.

Finally, I added a curves adjustment layer to brighten things up just a wee bit, the better to see that beautiful face. 🙂

      I was just thinking how sexy he looks here and how so very different from the awful ‘spoof’ dwarf look he had on the weekend. Thanks for washing that image out of my head with sexy Guy. 🙂

    Thank you ever so much for all your encouragement! *HUGS* Guy’s smirk could be trademarked. Richard Armitage does it so well and I’m always amazed at the contrast between the actor and the character.
