Default Round 3 Play-Along

Here is the play along challenge for Round 3 - again, you have 1 extra day to get it in because I was late in posting it. This round, this challenge is a bit different from the main challenge due to the prize offered those who made it through.

Your Round 3 Challenge is to create a kit using another photo by Captain Kimo as your inspiration. I have already picked a palette & photo for you. You must use this palette.

However, this palette is very monochromatic. It needs a little splash of color. Each of you may pick one additional color (and it's lighter & darker variations) to add to this palette.

[COLOR=#231f20]Round 3 is traditionally the no CU round. This year we are mixing it up a little. This year is not just about the moon, but also about color! For this round, you should really try and limit your use of commercial tools. See what you can do!

Inspiration photo:
