I was wondering if anyone here was good at photoshop or photo editing. I am not at all. I have a black Kia Soul and I want to put some green on it. I am trying to think of different paint schemes with green splashed on it. Would anyone be able to help post some concept pictures of various green/black paint schemes ? I really appreciate it.

Like EboniLM said, Marc is the one for the job! PM him, good luck with that ;) ...

I would follow the swage line above the door handles with a 1" orange stripe tapered off by the headlight lower outer corner and tapering towards the back as it sweeps upward. Everything above that is lime green including the main roof panel and hood. Just put a discreet Go Daddy logo on the sides and you're ready to bump draft :) Keep the window surrounds original black though..........maybe add a window net?

I had done this one a while ago but was thinking a wrap rather than a paint job but you get the idea...

Can you post a pic or two of your Soul? I can do a generic Black Soul but you need to see it with your wheels on just to give you an idea... :)
I'm guessing you have a 2012 Soul / Sole, correct?

Thanks EboniLM, 2012 Kia Soul Titanium PR, Soul Sailor for the referral .

I agree with MT-ED. Orange and Lime Green go hand in hand. Except, I do no think you should have the pillars lime green. That would be too much.
You do not want too much of a good thing.

Something simple:

Something simple and won't cost you an arm and a leg..

Does anyone make the hockey strip stripe (I think that is what you call it) that goes around the back of the headlight like Marc drew it or even close? I have seen a lot of them but they all look way too narrow behind the headlight.

Awesome pics! Thanks for the ideas. Marc, I like that first picture you have. I would want the hood green as well though. Could you send a pic with the hood green too ? Also, maybe a pic with the roof green as well. I do love the orange idea.

And the wrap idea ? Is that cheaper than painting ?

The entire hood green, or just the "Soul patch," the flat center of the hood? That's what's commonly done in the contrasting color. I do like where you're heading with this.

I have little talent with this stuff... But here is something I had in mind. I would want the orange strip wider but I was not going to attempt that...lol

have a look at the "ghost" special edition stripe.... see if that is what you want for thickness behind the headlights (obviously the colour isnt what you need tho).
