Welcome to the 6th day of A Graphic a Day in May! 😀
It’s Sunday and it seemed perfect to have our first John Thornton graphic. Richard Armitage and the entire cast of North & South made this production worthy of repeated viewings. Speaking of which, there is going to be a worldwide group watch of North & South next month and I hope you can participate! I sure am. This project has been initiated by Fanny/iz4blue and details can be found here: N&S Group Watch.
Today’s image and song recommendations come to us courtesy of Luciana. Thank you so much for your contributions, Luciana!
Here is your base image:
Here is today’s graphic:
*sigh* John Thornton is such a romantic character. Have you read the book yet? It goes into a lot of detail about his passions. ♥ The song chosen by Luciana was definitely appropriate: Too Marvelous for Words.
To create this graphic, I kept the background and added a second image of John Thornton which I snaffled from RichardArmitageNet.Com:
I extended Thornton’s back in the original image and overlapped the two figures. Then I applied some adjustments to brighten and soften the faces. Next I added a wild rose after cutting it out.
The text “You have to look hard” is written in the Treasure Map Deadhand font. I applied the Arch style using Photoshop’s Warp Text button and added a drop shadow. I chose that quote because it reflects so many traits of John Thornton, since at first he was rather unappealing but he slowly grew on us. ♥
Have a lovely Sunday and I’ll see you tomorrow! I’m very excited about the N&S group watch and hope many of you can join in. 😀
