This post is for a Mr. Graham Dawson, how to pick out the colour in an image by desaturating and using the history brush
The ball has been picked out in colour to try and emphasise the importance of the ball in rugby. As my first ever coach told me, "you can't win without the ball"
In this one I've shown England captain Borthwick bleeding from his nose, splattered on his jersey obviously hurt. He gets a lot of flack for his abilities on the field, and whether he deserves the captains jersey or not but he wears his heart on his sleeve.
This isn't the most advanced work ever, but it's a bit different to your standard image and controls what you want the viewer to see by drawing them to a focus point rather than the whole image.
