The weekend is fast approaching! Hope you’re having a lovely Friday.
Our sceencap today comes to us from jazzbaby1 who has her own music and poetry blog: FunkyBlueDandelion. She chose an image of Richard Armitage as Ricky Deeming from George Gently. Jazzbaby1 also recommended the song “Hot, Hot Papa” sung by David Wilcox. Thanks so much, jazzbaby1!
Here’s your base image:
Here’s your graphic of the day:
First, I fired up the song suggested by jazzbaby1. I placed the base image in a layer and duplicated it. Due to the riveting and topsy-turvy sounds of the song, I chose to apply the SpinRadialBlur effect using Adobe’s Pixel Blender plug-in to the second Ricky picture. There was a blank space and I tried filling it with another full-face image and it just didn’t work for me. Then I got the idea of a different perspective of Ricky Deeming and so I went to RichardArmitageNet.Com and found the following promo picure:
I clipped out the second figure, darkened it a bit and added a drop shadow. As an experiment, I duplicated this layer and added a SpinRadialBlur and Motion Blur. I often try things out that don’t work and then I undo them, but this time I liked the additional effect. Finally I added the text “RIVETING” using the AR DESTINE font with the Drop Shadow and Satin effects applied. The song was a really great fit for the Ricky Deeming character!
If you had a motorcycle and lots of riding lessons with Ricky Deeming, where would you ride?
