ImageWelcome to Westeros, one of the Seven Kingdoms in the HBO series Game of Thrones.

To do this poster, here is what I did:

  1. Found a picture of Westeros online
  2. In Photoshop, I outlined the kingdom and Select > Inverse and deleted the landscape
  3. I used the gradient tool to make my own gradient from colors that were in the original background, a green and a blue. On a new layer, I clicked and dragged on a slight angle in order to to have the green slope.
  4. I used a filter on both the Kingdom and on the landscape.  I went to Filter>Filter GAllery to bring up all the filters and view them in real time before applying it.  For the castle, I decided on Poster Edges.  For the background I used Cutout.
  5. Online, I found a website that generates text in the Game of Thrones font. I generated the Westeros text and then added it in.  I used a Layer Style by double clicking on the layer.  I used the Bevel and Emboss effects.
