Armitage Visual Fest 6

There are some images I particularly like to photoshop for whatever reason.

Here are a few of my favorites:

First up, Richard holding a piece of paper is too much for me to resist…

I did a fun Running Richard activity a few months ago.

SPOOKS

I don’t know why I’m so drawn to this image, especially seeing that it’s a hassle to clean up and remove the background.

Here’s another image that I like tinkering with:

By the way, when I get to my “Run Richard” or “Leaning against Richard” I usually start with something like this:

Empty Lucas Running RA tux empty

That way whatever background I want them against is easy to insert 😉

Armitage Visual Fest 4

I have a decent amount of Armitage pictures on my laptop, I bet my compilation pails in comparison to most people’s (I’m a laptop purist and chuck things out the moment I even suspect I don’t need it).

Having said that, I have enough pictures when I want to fiddle around with photoshop.

I usually bin my little silly manips the moment they are published in a post, but every so often I end up keeping a few, mostly because they have inspired me to do something else.

Here a few of the manips I’ve made for whatever reason (seriously, with some of them I stopped asking why? and how?)

Then there are those manips that never get completed.

I’d been meaning to do a Richard Armitage Magician post (for whatever reason) and I never completed it:

Richard Magician 11

Yup, still need plenty of work…

Debbie does Dallas, Richard does Old Hollywood…

There WILL BE a “what’s Richard leaning against?” brainstorming post once the RA Silent Auction (coming to a computer near you this Friday!) is done and dusted, but I’ll leave you with this image I’ve been toying around with:

Richard Armitage Hollywood cinema

I simply refuse to let go of Old Hollywood Richard!

Scientists keep on trying to figure out Viagra for women.

Done!

Here it is, and without any nasty side-effects!

In the meantime, here’s the image and you can start thinking where we’re going to stick Richard 🙂

How can I possibly improve on Armitage perfection?

You may have noticed that I haven’t touched upon the subject of the Esquire Magazine Richard Armitage shoot.

I haven’t mentioned the pictures, nor have I tortured them with my limited PS skills or disembowelled them for my own amusement.

The truth is all the first immediate ideas I had (once I came round after passing out at the sheer beauty) had already been realised by others: Bond? Check! Cary Grant? Yup! Sit there and lick the screen? You bet!

Richard Armitage perfection small

I usually like to add, subtract, filter or crop an image to scratch a need, to test an idea, to push the boundaries of the original, annoy photography purists, but with this set there was nothing, no impulses I wanted to act upon.

Apart from a slight crop, what else could I do to heighten the senses and boost emotional response?

What could Photoshop and my imagination come up with that could perfect the perfect?

That is why today I shall stick with simplicity, at least until these photos relinquish control over my sensibilities, or another RA photoshoot pops up and I can take these picture down from the plinth their beauty has placed them on.

Ok, maybe just a quick silly one for the road…

Armitage Daddy long legs

Run Richard, Run! But what’s he running from/towards?

Empty Lucas Running insert idea

I really enjoy getting ideas from the comments my wonderful readers leave, so I want to try something new today.

I’ve used the image of Lucas North running many times.

There’s something about how Richard’s body looks in motion that makes me want to cry out a Hallelujah!

Just look at those thighs and that junk in his trunk!

I could send hours fiddling with this image and, actually, I have.

I’ve had Richard running with dogs:

And running away from dragons:

Armitage Dragon fire

Now I want to hear YOUR IDEAS!!!

What is Richard running away from?

What is Richard running towards?

Leave your ideas in comments and remember, the dafter the better and nothing is too out there!

Give as much info as you can to help me, maybe a little background story or link to a photo, and I will do my best to PS your ideas and post them throughout the week 🙂

To start us off, here’s Bilbo Baggins, the ultimate fangirlhobbit, chasing after Richard for an autograph!

Honestly, I can’t blame the amorous Halfling, that’s more or less what I’d look like!

I can’t wait to see what you crazy lot will come up with!!!

This needed to be done…

I just have time for a quick post today.

The following needed to be done badly…

Richard Armitage glasses

I can only regret that it stylists didn’t see fit to incorporate the glasses, therefore forcing me to bend reality using my trusty Photoshop.

We’ve waited forever for people to realise what a wonderful actor Richard is, now I’ll be waiting eternity for some stylist to realise he looks amazing in glasses.

People need to go back and rewatch Armitage stuff, like a certain John pretending to be Lucas pretending to be a Russian millionaire…

This girl could really make passes at such a guy wearing glasses…

Dear stylists, snap to it 🙂

Photoshop your Life on a Silly Sunday

Many Richard Armitage fans have spread their creative wings and have accessed their artistic side.

I can’t tell you the amount of times I’ve had a giggle while adding an absurd beard or make Thorin’s brows dance around his forehead.

One of the most wonderful tools to experiment with is Photoshop.

I know there are many of us out there who have taken the time and pushed ourselves to create interesting RA images to entertain fellow fans.

The sky really is the limit and fiddling with pictures and gifs can be addictive.

Sad and Useless pushed the envelope and takes a look at how our life would change if we could use PS in real life.

If you don’t get the jokes, it’s time to check out a tutorial, because you’re missing out!
