October animated gif challenge – day 2

Welcome to the second day of our October animated gif challenge! Thanks so much for all your support and requests thus far.

Today’s animated gif is dedicated to Dhana who is a huge fan of John Standring from Sparkhouse. I finally watched that program and was incredibly impressed by Richard Armitage’s performance.

Richard Armitage as John Standring

Dhana asked me to select one of two scenes she recommended and I chose the one with the door opening to reveal John Standring as I found it appealing — and I have a weakness for scenes where the door opens upon a Richard Armitage character!

Here is your animated gif:

I look forward to more scene recommendations! See you tomorrow. 🙂

    That is utterly beautiful. You caught the very heart of Richard’s Standring, bccmee. Wonderful recommendation, Dhana.

      John Standring is another character I appreciated better after seeing the entire program, much like Richard Armitage’s portrayal of Claude Monet. Thanks for your comment, fitzg.

    As Dhana I love John Standring. he’s my favourite character just after Guy. John is incredibly moving. Richard have made a great job with this character. The animated gif is totally charming. I’m agree with the comment of fitzg. This is John Standring.
    Good work Bccmee.

      John Standring is a sweet and gentle giant, I think. He seems somehow larger than Richard Armitage’s other characters. Thank you for stopping by, Lady Prisca.

    Hi John!:) Hallo bccmee!:)Your idea is(as always)fantastic.
    Do you remember that scene from RH2(episode with medieval casino:D)when Sherif hits head(several times:))in Guy’s chest?. Highly amusing IMO:)

  4. Kathleen Evans says:

    John Standring is always good. Love it!

    It’s amazing how RA as John Standring is different from Richard who looks from your banner.
    Gif is beautiful 🙂 the whole essence of John Standring his modesty and shyness enclosed in a few moments.

    • bccmee says:

      You’re so right Ania. Richard Armitage and John Standring look almost nothing alike and yet they share the same skin! Thanks so much for taking the time to comment.

  6. How sweet JS is!
    Can you suggest an online tutorial? I would like to start producing gifs myself. Is it very difficult? Thank

    • bccmee says:

      Sweet is a perfect word to describe JS, Carla. As for online tutorials, I don’t know of any offhand. I plan to write one myself because I made up a very fast technique. Will post it when I get a chance.

    Oh B… this is great we are getting to know what all the RA fans really like…I’ve got a list a mile long….I’ve got a feeling we are all on the same wave length….one of my fav scenes is from RH series 2 ep. 3 no not the chesticle scene that’s worth a movie in its own right …carrying on from our comedy duo idea, I love it when Vasey hits Guy’s amoured chest, Richard has the most naughty smirk…the caption would be ‘ouch’…Loving this…thankyou

    • bccmee says:

      Heh, that sounds like a fun animated gif, jules. Will make that one before October ends so keep a lookout for it! 🙂 Thanks so much for participating!

  8. RavenRoseBeetle says:

    Aw, bless. Love this one.

  9. Pamela says:

    I think with that gif that you’ve managed to distill the pathos that Richard brings to his performance as John Standring. Brilliant!

    I love John Standring too! I’m so glad you watched it Bccmee! He is so sweet and kind, but not a weakling at all. Which is why I compared him to Gabriel Oak in my spring post last year. I also adore Harry Kennedy and when I heard him quote Gabriel Oak in Thomas Hardy’s Far From the Madding Crowd, I was a goner! 🙂 Of course I love Thornton too, but only after he softened up.

    • bccmee says:

      John Standring is so irresistible as portrayed by Richard Armitage. I wouldn’t mind one of him for my own, phylly3! 😉 Oh and don’t get me started on Harry Kennedy, LOL!

  11. Carolyn says:

    That’s adorable! John is so sweet!

  12. Dhana says:

    Oh, Bcc!! It is perfect. I cannot begin to tell you how happy this makes me! This gif captures perfectly all the reasons I am smitten with John Standring. (sigh) I am eternally grateful.

  13. mersguy says:

    Lovely sweet John, tugs at my heart, lovely shot.

  14. Musa/Fabo says:

    John Standring is so sweet. Love the expression on his face at that moment.

  15. You captured the very essence of that sweet, shy JS! Who cannot but love him?!

  16. IngeD3 says:

    I absolutely adore this one! John Standring has captured my heart completely…
    And you’ve captured the very essence of the character in this .gif – Well done!
