A big thank you to everyone who contributed a word or multiple words to the “A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words” project. Between comments here on the blog and suggestions made in Armitage World Chat (If you’ve never been, we’d love to have you–we are normally there in the evenings.), I had 58 words to work with.
Again I went with a beardy pic. Don’t worry, I’m neither trying to convert you non-beard lovers or in denial about the demise of the beard. 😉 Something about the beard pics just seem to work best for this project. I hope you all like the final result!
For those interested in trying to find all of the words in the graphic, here is the complete list of words used:
Admirable * Adorable * Agile * Appealing * B.A.M.F. * Beardy * Captivating * Chameleon * Charismatic * Delectable * Dreamy * Endearing * Engaging * Enthralling * Exquisite * Fascinating * Gentlemanly * Graceful * Gracious * Handsome * Humble * Intelligent * Intense * Intriguing * Irresistible * Jovial * Keen * Luscious * Magical * Magnetic * Magnificent * Marvelous * Mesmerizing * Modest * Muse * Mysterious * Naughty * Observant * Pensive * Quick * Ravishing * Scrumptious * Sensational * Sensual * Sexy * Statuesque * Stunning * Suave * Sublime * Talented * Tender * Unexpurgated * Unique * Valued * Wonderful * Xenial * Yummy * Zestful
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!
I’m back from visiting my brother’s family. My nephew is just as adorable as I expected, although the little guy decided the best way to welcome Aunt Jas was by peeing on me almost immediately. I chose to view this as his way of marking me as his favorite aunt! 😉 It was so much fun to see how much his sisters adore him, showering him with kisses and hugs. It melted my heart.
Now that I’m home, I’ve been catching up on reading my favorite blogs and thinking about what I want to do next. There are several posts I have in mind for here on the blog. I just have to make a list and get cracking.
- I finally watched Between the Sheets, which probably deserves a reaction post.
- There are several Photoshop tutorials I’m looking forward to trying out and sharing the results.
- If I can manage to get past my writer’s block, chapter 6 of John and Maggie’s story needs to be completed.
- Most importantly in the short term, there is a little something I’m working on for a special day that’s coming up later this month!
In the meantime I thought I’d share another of my Photoshop experiments. I wanted to try making a stippled drawing in Photoshop. At first, the plan was to do it all manually with a brush, but I came across a tutorial that looked interesting, so I gave it a try. You all know how much I love tutorials! 🙂
Here is the original image I started out with:
And here is the result of my Photoshop experiment:
It isn’t quite what I was going for, but still a fun effect.
I’m off either this afternoon or tomorrow to donate food for SpReAd the Love. Have you donated your pint of blood or pound of food yet? There are still 13 days left to donate!
Your favorite photo shoot:
This is one of the easiest choices to make! He has done some great photo shoots over the years, but WOW! These photos of a bearded Richard Armitage from the Project Magazine shoot are crazy hot!!! Excuse me while I fan myself…
Here is another attempt at making a gif. I’m sure if you are a Richard Armitage fan-and you don’t have an IPad-you have already been over to Vimeo to see the videos from the Project Magazine shoot. If not you can see them here, here and here I used one of those for this gif. I’m not super thrilled with how it turned out, but I thought I would share it anyway.
