Today’s Picture of the Day (POD) at RichardArmitageNet.Com is dedicated to Sophie:
Here is your Graphic of the Day:
Guy is art. Today’s POD is again beautiful. What else is new? 😀
To start this graphic, I extracted Guy from his background and removed most of the flecks of the white stuff that wasn’t snow. I only saw that episode once and can’t remember what it was. You have to understand that I watched Robin Hood for ogling reasons only and not the storyline!
I skipped off to RichardArmitageNet.Com to browse for some more images to include.
I masked out (erased) most of the foliage but kept some for atmosphere. Then I applied various filters using virtualPhotographer from optikVerve Labs.
For the background, I chose Van Gogh’s “Starry Night.”
I placed the water reflections portion of the painting over a solid tan layer, changed the mode to Lighten and lowered the opacity. Then I duplicated the painting layer and rotated it so the stars would intermingle with the reflections.
Next I merged the layers and cut out the corners with the Rounded Rectangle tool. Finally, I added the text “Sir Guy” using the P22 Monet Regular font with a slight Outer Glow effect.
I wonder if Van Gogh would’ve done a portrait of Guy if they were contemporaries — and if Guy was real!
