Welcome back for another graphic! We’re now on day 12. 🙂
Today our screencap comes to us courtesy of mariana. Thanks very much, mariana!
Here is your base image of Richard Armitage as Sir Guy of Gisborne:
And here’s your graphic of the day:
As usual, I started by clipping out the figure. Then I began playing around with textures and blend modes which resulted in this while I was still in progress:
Since it started to look like a painting, I ran in that direction. Off I went to Wikipedia and snaffled this picture of the Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci:
I’ve been fortunate enough to see this painting “live” and in person at the Louvre. 😀 I got to the museum early and used my very poor French speaking skills to ask where it was so I could beat the crowds. I’m not easily embarrassed, LOL! It was quite a sight and I stared for a long time.
Anyway, in my graphic I changed the blend mode of Guy to Hard Light and made sure his face was over skin tones and not the landscape background. I also tilted his head a bit and added a very slight drop shadow.
As for the music, mariana wrote, “I’m sure you’ll find a beautiful song” so I listened to my good old standby of Miles Davis on Pandora online radio. 🙂
Thanks again for all your support! Hope you have a great weekend.
P.S. What is one of your favorite paintings?
