Welcome to day 3 of A Graphic a Day in May 2012.
Today’s Lucas North promo picture was submitted by ItsJSforMe who also runs a blog of her own which can be found here: Do I have a blog?
Here is the base image:
And here is today’s graphic. Because the promo picture is high-resolution and the head and shoulders are all visible, I took the option of making a wallpaper. Please click for full size (1600 x 900 pixels).
For this graphic, I first cut out Lucas North and applied some adjustments. I duplicated the layer and when I started dragging it, I saw that the chin of one figure fit the shoulder of the other almost perfectly so I left it there. Then I reduced the opacity of the second Lucas. For texture, I added the following old paper image:
I duplicated the paper layer too and reduced its size and I liked the effect of the white borders, especially after adding a drop shadow. Then I added a sunset image and reduced its opacity.
Finally, I masked out (erased) the bottom of the coats with some textured paintbrushes.
I also made a siggie:
During the process, I listened to my “Damien Rice” channel on Pandora online radio. That may explain the hearts, LOL! ♥
See you tomorrow!
P.S. I forgot to mention that yesterday’s contributor, Faboamanto, also has a blog: White Rose Writings.
