February Challenge – steamy Porter

Ah the weekend is almost here. I can smell it. ๐Ÿ˜€

Today’s image choice comes to us from Tina. Thank you, Tina! She has a wide variety of interests on her Pinterest page if you want to check it out: http://pinterest.com/trlibhart/

Richard Armitage as John Porter

John Porter looks a little cranky, doesn’t he? I really love this picture. According to one of my sources, this photoshoot and the footage used in the viral video were shot in the UK prior to filming Chris Ryan’s Strike Back. Richard Armitage’s portrayal of John Porter is my favorite character, although after December he may be replaced by Thorin Oakenshield.

For this banner, I decided to have fun with some typography. I really enjoy playing with different fonts and text effects in graphics and videos.

Please click the image or text link below to view the animated Flash banner with sound. It’s quite a contrast to yesterday’s fluffy cloudy banner, LOL!

Porter may be a little steamed off, but I hope you have a happy Friday! ๐Ÿ˜‰ See you tomorrow.

  1. LOL at first glance I though you were writing- John Porter, I can almost smell him ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Then I actually focused and read what the author had actually intended me to read. Love steamy Porter banner ๐Ÿ˜‰

    The effect with typography impress me very much. How you do that ??? You’re really very talented Bccmee! Tina I love your choice , it’s a wonderful pic (Mmmm , this look…) and JP is one of my favourite characters of Richard too.
    “Porter steamed off “, L.O.L.. As IWantToBeAPinUp , I love the steamy effect. I remember A scene with Richard , in Ultimate force , with steam , that was very sexy too.
    It seems that each february day will be excellent.
    Bravo Bccmee.

  5. Love the banner. JP is so hot! He’s my hero ๐Ÿ™‚

    Are you going to start giving graphics lessons or what? It is probably more about vision and experimentation, but I think you are ready for prime time. Not that I know anything about graghics or editing or anything. Just sayin your stuff is beyond playing around now. If your like me though I hate to do any thing fun for money. Too much pressure and it takes the fun out of it. Am I making any sense. Ubber cool !

    • bccmee says:

      @Patty Craig: Wow, thanks for your generous comment. I’m nowhere near expert level when I look at what the professionals are producing but I appreciate your kind words. ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Luciana says:

    I haven’t been ‘introduced’ to JP yet, but get really curious every time you talk about him, specially now with this steaming gorgeous figure!!! LOL
    Thanks Tina for the beautiful picture!!! Bcc, thanks again for the lovely banner!!!
    Wish you all a very nice weekend!!

  8. Kitty says:

    Yeah! John Portah – bustin’ out, Baby!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. Carolyn says:

    Happy Friday! Love the banner! With that look on his face, I believe he could knock his name out in the bricks with his fists. I love JP, one of my top three characters. A good man to have around when there’s trouble yet he has a kind heart and a tender touch. Dangerous and desirable. Whew, a perfect man!

  10. jacqui_coinyard says:

    Cool trick with the letters, love all your efforts and trials and the subject you choose ofcourse.. ; -)

  11. Teuchter says:

    Well Bcc! I’m sure MY temperature went up a notch looking at this new banner. The name effect is brilliant and seeing the steam rising from that hot body!! *Swoon*!!! I often go back to re-watch the viral video of that scene which I saved and I never tire of it!! ๐Ÿ˜€ How could one ever tire of looking at Porter – wet, dry or steaming/steamy?? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  12. jasrangoon says:

    The concrete words effect is really cool! Great job, as usual, bccmee!

  13. Ania says:

    Excellent work, Bccmee!!! I love all the wonderful effects (like today with the letters ๐Ÿ™‚ ) which you joy us in this month. Oh yes, today’s banner shows how hot is JP …oh… and his gaze *thud* btw he is high on my list of favorite characters played by RA.

  14. Steamy Porter ….heavens! That’s one hell of effect Bcc! and his name blowing the concrete up is so powerful! What can we say? GOOD JOB!!!!!

  15. Meryl says:

    well~cranky or not, he’s steamin’ hot!!!
    I love Mr Porter me………….
    thanks B

  16. Kate Patrick says:

    IMPRESSIVE! After Scruffalicious, this is my favorite because of the rugged, intense look. DEfinitely a man’s man, and not just some pretty boy! Busting up that wall is perfect for John Porter, because he is such a kick-ass character.

    • bccmee says:

      @Kate: Haha, yes, he’s all man. That’s what appeals to me about John Porter and the relatively recent RA beard….they’re very masculine. *swoon*

  17. WOW, steamy indeed!
    I’m happy to catch up with your February challenge now! Thanks for sharing all these fabulous works!

  18. Seriously impressed with the typography at the start, what a brilliant effect.

    I didn’t know that the Viral was filmed in the UK – interesting fact!

    • bccmee says:

      @RichardArmitageNet: Yes, the viral video footage was shot by David Clerihew on the side while doing his photoshoots and the editing was by a friend of his.

      Thanks for your kind words about the typography. ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. Debra says:

    WOW!!! Oooooh, JP! Another winner!!! Superb effect with the concrete!
    I’ve watched that viral video countless times….I can see him now….squirming in that chair!
    I could lick the sweat off him!!! *THUD*
    Thanks for the wonderful banner, Bccmee!

  20. Laura says:

    Been busy for a couple of days, this is an awesome banner to return to! Porter is my current favorite, as well…. keep up the good work!

  21. April says:

  22. Thais says:

    I really enjoyed your choice, Tina! RA is incredible sexy as John Porter in this pic. Amazing dust/smoke effect, Bccmee! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  23. PV says:
