Here we are on the 22nd day of our May graphics. Hope your week is going well so far.
Today’s Richard Armitage image choice comes to us from Emma. It’s from the Project Magazine photoshoot. Thanks very much, Emma! There’s that sexy beard again. ♥
Here’s your base picture:
Here’s your graphic for today:
First and foremost, I fired up Emma’s recommended music: “Forget Me Not” by the Civil Wars. Clearly, the song had an immediate impact as I used the the title for the graphic’s caption.
When I placed the base image onto the first blank layer, I really liked the softness and perspective of Richard Armitage looking down in close-up. I wanted to change the lighting just a tiny bit. It didn’t take long to find the suitability of the Ambience filter from VirtualPhotographer. I placed this new layer over the original and set its blend mode to Lighten. While it looked great, I tried to add clouds using the Filter > Render > Clouds command and really liked the way that looked over the shoulder.
This is another simple and quick graphic but I could not think of anything else that could improve upon it!
I’m curious. Where do you see Richard Armitage’s career in five years? Alternatively, where do you see his beard in five years? 😉
