All those new beardy pictures have inspired me to play with Photoshop some more!
As excited as I am for the fans who got to meet him, I really wanted to take one of those pictures and make it just Richard Armitage. So, I cropped the picture from here and found a tutorial on how to use the clone tool to remove the lucky lady who got to meet him. His forehead and nose were rather shiny in this pic, so I also found a tutorial on how to remove the shine. Here’s the results:
Seeing as I’m hopeless when it comes to drawing and painting, I’ve been fascinated by the tutorials about turning a photo into a pencil sketch in Photoshop. This was as good a time as any to give one of the tutorial a try. I did one in color and one in black and white.
Anyway, just thought I’d share my experiments. 🙂
