Graphic a Day in May 2012 – Day 7

How was your weekend?

Welcome to day 7 of our graphics project. Our screencap of Richard Armitage as Sir Guy of Gisborne today comes to us from Carla. Thank you, Carla!

Here is your base image:

And here is your graphic:

Heart as black as night

The name of the tune recommended by Carla is “Your Heart is as Black as Night” so it clearly had an influence on me!

To start off, I cut out Guy from the background in the original image and used the Clone tool to remove the hand in the foreground. I then found another screencap from RichardArmitageNet.Com:

I overlapped the images and used the Clone tool to remove the horse from the added screencap. Next, I brightened the images using various filters from Xero Freeware Plugins. The hearts were created with the Custom Shape tool, then an Inner Shadow and Inner Glow were applied.

The text “Heart as black as night” was typed and then selected so I could erase the words on the large heart to allow the background to show through. I used the Qarats and Moderna fonts.

I freely admit that season 1 Guy is my favorite!  ♥  I keep forgetting why.  😉

    Oh, my favourite bad ‘Guy’!!!! Lovely as usual, Bcc!!!

  4. ItsJSforMe says:

    Excellent, bcc! You’ve done it again! Thank you, Carla, for the cap! 🙂

  5. Mezz says:

    This is wonderful B. I’m taking notes! The cap and music are the perfect combination Carla. 🙂

  6. Emma says:

    The two expressions Guy has look great side by side. Very good, b. Good choice, Carla. The only thing I didn’t like about s1 Guy was that horrible coloured scarf! 🙂

  7. Judit says:

    Fantastic job, as usual, Bcc! Lovely choice of pic, Carla! This graphic a day project is so much fun! 🙂

  8. Chrissy says:

    I too adore S1 Guy – he made an immediate impression on me!! Gorgeous pictures and I love how you used them. Simply beautiful.

  9. Your graphics is full of hearts! Yes, perfect!
    This song influenced me too – even if has already been used for a fanvid of John Mulligan, another black heart! – because it evokes the dangerous, tormented henchman so well!

    You can also play with the title: “Your heart is as black as ….knight”
    Too easy? Forgive me, doing a joke in another language is really an achievement for me LOL!

    Great combination of two Guys ;o) I love the ‘deep in thought’ expression of RA here. Thank you, bccmee and Carla, for the great start into the week.

  11. titianminx says:

    Luverly-two Guys.Think you’ve excelled yourself with this one b. Don’t know how LOL PERFECTION.

  12. magwi says:

    Lovely choice of pic Carla, and then bccmee spoils us with two Guys for the price of one. 🙂 Makes my heart flutter!

    Lovely image bccmee. ♥

  13. jacqui_coinyard says:

    Indeed 2 great Guy expressions. Love to read how you explain how everything is done but wonder how a hand can be removed to show Guys shoulder? :-/

  14. Teuchter says:

    What a way to start the week! This is brilliant and has to be one of my favourites! Not just one but two pics of our smouldering Guy on this one. The choice of song is perfect even though we know Guy’s heart wasn’t really that black! 😉

  15. jeanniegisborne says:

    Oh Carla what a marvelous choice of song and screencaps. It’s “sighable” 😉
    Nicely put together B 🙂

  16. Ania says:

    Two Guys in a graphic, hmmm this is pure pleasure, double pleasure for the eyes. 🙂 Thank you girls!

  17. Carolyn says:

    Gorgeous pics of Guy! Gorgeous graphic!

  18. Holliday says:

    S1 Guy is my favorite too. Wonderful job.

  19. tyme4t says:

    S2 is my favourite Guy – it’s the gold scarf thingy I don’t like for S1 Guy. But this graphic is so wonderful I don’t even notice it….too distracted by the double dose of Guy’s eyes – ahhhh

  20. Faboamanto says:

    Love Guy’s facial expressions, and he fits the song perfectly. Great job Bccmee and Carla.

  21. Ana Cris says:

    Hi Bcc and Carla,
    I’m writing a post about Guy, your project was inspiring! :0)

  22. Mariana says:

    Excellent work bccmee! Excellent graphic and song!

  23. “Heart as black as night”…sigh…swoon…

    Thanks for sharing!

  24. april73 says:

    Carla, I love your pic choice. 🙂

    Bccmee, you’ve done a splendid job, bravo !!! 🙂

  25. bccmee says:

    @Everyone: Thanks again for your delightful comments! This was a really perfect song choice for our Guy. Yes, the scarf is a bit controversial but I like it a lot. 😛 I know I’m in the small minority in liking season 1 Guy best, but there you have it, LOL! I also like his sniff and smolder.

    As for cloning out the hand in the foreground, I have had a lot of practice with this tool. Also, I don’t have time to be meticulous thanks to being very busy this month and having deadlines! 😉

    I’m so glad you enjoyed this double dose of Guy.
