I completed my first visual assignment last night. I chose to use the color splash on the University of Michigan football helmets.
I have always loved the contrast in colors of the maize and the blue. The Michigan uniforms are unique, and thought the color splash would go well with the helment.
I used GIMP to complete this assignment. It was a lot easier than I though it would be and I really enjoyed it. The color splash is cool way to add emphasis to certain parts of the picture. Cool stuff.
Here is the tutorial I used, which was straightforward and overall very helpful. http://www.gimp.org/tutorials/Selective_Color/
