Bitmap Project: Astephe1

This is my Bitmap Project.
Sentence #1- I chose a picture of myself to be edited as the colorful background would give me plenty to play with on the editing program GIMP.
Sentence #2. I also liked the fact that I was moving and so I may be able to motion blur the image or just apply other cool effects.

NOTE: I Blurred the background into the second image. It shows up only slightly unless you look close at the bottom left corner you can see a color difference and to the top right.
