Go Blue (or, Go Maize)

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/
