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.


  1. Very cool, and you did not know your face is thin.. really? lmao.. I would like to find a really hot poster I love and try this. Lainie

  2. Strangely enough, nobody caught my error in my font usage. It´s not Times Roman... it´s Trajan Pro!
    Karin? I figured you would have caught this... maybe you haven´t been here in a while.

    And yes, Lainie, you should do one too ;-)
