movie poster challenge - thor - explained

I started with the original Thor poster. I then took a self portrait in a similar pose and tried to get the same shadows to save some time in Photoshop.
I had to remove the original text in the poster, then apply my portrait and mask out everything but my face. The eyes were made blue. I had to widen my face a little bit (I didn´t realize my face was that narrow). Finally I had to write in the text back in, using the same Times New Roman font.
The colors in my face and eyes were created with Adjustment Layers.

video: first bike ride of 2011!

Iselin and I riding along Gjersjøen on our way back home. The lake is still quite frozen, but if this sunny weather continues it will disappear soon... I hope.

sunday bike ride!

Iselin managed to get me out of the house on Sunday for this year´s first long bike ride with my Cannondale. The weather was sunny and beautiful, although a bit nipply at first. After an hour though, we both realized we had at least a layer of clothing too many. We covered 60 km in about 2:45. Not the fastest pace, but it was afterall a nice Sunday ride (plus it took some time getting out of downtown). Next time we take the car first, right Iselin? ;-)
Thanks again for a great ride!
