Getting back into raster graphics with Gimp- jersey swap and signature

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I'm sure over the years you've seen some of my projects. For the last six or seven years, I have been working almost exclusively with vector graphics- the kind you see most members working with on here... Illustrator and Inkscape files. Back a number of years ago (before I got into vector art), I was heavily into raster graphics. I started on Gimp and eventually worked my way up to Photoshop.

Over the past week or so, I downloaded Gimp and have been extremely surprised with how usable it is. I don't know that I see myself needing Photoshop because the current Gimp release is very equipped.

Anyways, I've tried my hand on two projects to see where I'm at and if I've lost much of my touch.

The first project was a jersey swap. I took a photo of an Ohio State Pro Combat set because I always loved the brushed metal finish on the helmet and made it into a fantasy Georgia Bulldogs set. The next is a signature...I used to make these all the time! I had to find the image of the player I wanted and cut the background out...pretty sure we called these renders back in the day.

I have been very pleased and surprised with how they turned out considering I haven't used these types of programs in a very long time...probably since the mid to last 2000s?
