I’m having a great February, how about you?
By now you may have already seen the newly discovered promo pictures of Richard Armitage as Guy of Gisborne at RichardArmitageNet.Com. Big thanks to Ali for finding these high quality images!
Instead of our challenge, today I decided to focus on these pictures. Not to worry though, because I’ll still be completing all 14 animations for our February project! 🙂
Here’s one of the new photos:
Did you notice how similar that image is to Little Guy? I don’t have a Little Guy action figure, so I found a picture online and made the following siggie.
Below is my favorite of the newly discovered images:
I was so enchanted by that promo picture that I immediately set out to make a wallpaper. This is my very first Guy of Gisborne wallpaper! The dimensions are 1600 x 900 pixels. Please click for full size.
It would take too long to explain how I made this wallpaper, but I did use six textures in addition to the forest background image, all set to various blending modes and opacities. I really didn’t set out with a plan, but kept playing around and pushing buttons until I liked the way it looked. Also I listened to some Miles Davis music as I played. 🙂
The text “Sir Guy” is written in Springtime Capitals typeface. The font for the quote “Knight of the Kingdom of Dreams” is Spirit Medium. I borrowed the quote from Mark Twain’s book, The Prince and the Pauper.
As mentioned on RichardArmitageNet.Com, the original source of these high-quality images is a German television site, http://robinhood.superrtl.de/, if you would like to explore there.
There are two more new Guy promo pictures, one of which happens to be the Picture of the Day at RichardArmitageNet.Com if you want to check that out!
See you tomorrow when we pick up the February animation challenge where we left off.
