Presenting Maya-free Shirtless Lucas . . .


I think we’ll agree this promo photo of Richard Armitage as Lucas for S9 is absolutely delicious, but the original had, of course, a mopey-looking Laila Rouass as Maya in part of the photo. Now, my Photoshopping skills are still fledgling, and following the beautiful contours of Mr. A’s body is a bit tricky in places when one is erasing the background.  Enjoyable, but tricky. Still, I decided to tackle it and was pretty pleased with the final results.  I hope you enjoy a Maya-Free Zone. 😉

  1. Great job Angie – we so appreciate seeing only Lucas!! And doesn’t he have THE most amazing “contours”?? 😉 Me likee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *gulp* *swoon* *thud*

    • Thanks, Teuchter. 😀 I think it definitely looks better without Mopey Maya in the frame. Oh, yes, those contours are very amazing. And I had to enlarge the photo and study it carefully to complete it, of course. *cough* Glad you likee! 😉

  2. When I expressed surprise that this photo hadn’t been reproduced Maya-free, you sounded doubtful that you were ready to tackle such a task. NO WAY!! This is wonderful! *drool* Poor you, having to so carefully follow his contours!!!! 😉

    • Well, you didn’t see my first attempt. 😉 Also, my computer is set up to allow up to 50 redos of the additions on a particular piece. That sounds like a lot, but I hit that button plenty of times while working on this. Ultimately I was pretty happy with how it came out or I wouldn’t have posted it. Ah, yes, those contours. . . . *sigh*

  3. Oh, that’s lovely! Thank you for all of your hard work! I know it must have been absolute TORTURE to study that body in order to produce that picture!!! LOL 😉

    • For a very masculine fellow, RA has a lot of –curves–to his physique. It did prove a challenge. But I am always willing to take one for the team. 😉

  4. This new and vastly improved Maya-free pic has just made my day, Angie (and made me realise just how much I miss those often roving tattoos).

    Thank you.

    I can now fully appreciate/trace/drool over/ogle every one of those heavenly RA contours without any lumpen-leaded sulky-faced distractions.

      • How can you possibly be mopey or moody in His Royal Gorgeousness’ presence? You’d think any red-blooded female would be glowing with happiness just from being in the same room with this divine creature, let alone being kissed&cuddled by him! Maybe Maya/LR’s just not red blooded. She probably bats for the other team. 😉
