Minor Monkeying with the custom Gordie

A slightly jaundiced view of the same cardWhen I made this custom on Friday, I mentioned that I still thought the colours were a bit off and this was noticeable in the green of the Hartford sweater.

I found that all the Whalers images in that set were very, very yellow, so I went back to my source image again and played with the colour balance.

I think the result is a better match, though the graininess of the 1980-81 print process is a really difficult thing to emulate.

    Fantastic! I loved the last two posts and I think it is great you are playing around with customs. Any chance you might try and print them?
