Do you worry that you’re stripping Richard Armitage of his dignity? Do strangers insist that you are somehow harming the man?* Well, I have the solution for you!
Richard Armitage Statues:
Now you can stare for hours on end and no one will think anything of it. It’s art after all.
*For those who just like to look at the man, and are happy with yourselves just the way you are, I hope you’ll enjoy this too! 😉
With the plethora of new images of Richard Armitage we’ve seen lately, I decided it was time to give line art another try. Last time I had a lot of issues with his mouth. So this time, I spent a good amount of time looking through images to pick one I thought I’d have better luck with. Such an arduous task, let me tell you! 😉
Anyway, here is the image I used:
It is from the press conference in New Zealand. I don’t know who took the image. If you’d like credit, let me know.
Here is my line drawing version:
I incorporated a few things that I’ve learned since the last time…how to do eyebrows and eyelashes. Oh, and I tried to duplicate the shirt. I’m not sure that really falls into the line art category, but I’m all for mixing styles. Overall, I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out. His mouth is much better, which makes me very happy! 🙂
I was looking for a Photoshop tutorial for something I wanted to try. Totally out of character for me, right? 😉 Anyway, I didn’t find what I was looking for, but I did come across another tutorial for making line drawings. Naturally I had to try it out.
Here is the original photo for reference:
Here is the black and white line drawing. I had to find a second tutorial to add stubble.
Then I went through and added color.
I’m not happy with how the mouth turned out, but I gave up after I lost count of how many attempts I made to get it right. Oh well, there’s always next time.
I think I’m in denial. Every time I go to try out something new in Photoshop, I continue to use the beardy pics. Once we see some beardless photos, I’m sure I’ll move on. But until then…
In the comments on one of my more recent posts Fanny mentioned that she’d like to see a Richard Armitage image done in the style of Andy Warhol. Well, I had a tutorial lined up and decided to go ahead and give it a try. Hope you like it Fanny!
