Just dropping by.... Christmas is getting closer!
Hey, awesome work as always Bill!!!!
Ooops, something went wrong with the picture after uploading ... I will try again
I've had a little break on colorizing and while on vacation, I did one of a commissar of the 69th Brigade of the NKVD battalion , IA Vlasenko. It didn't really turn up well, but I still wanted to post it here. Lips are so hard to do with an other color, without them looking "femine".
Absolutely AMAZING.... Such skill and talent and a great pallet of colors.... Unbelievable....Truely....
I am at a loss for words.....Gwar
Aleksander if you have never tried working in CMYK it might give you the look you are seeking. Worth playing with. This is where I got started when I was learning. I never feel as though I've arrived because there is always more to learn, but I wanted to share. You've done very good work on this photo.
Yet Another Colorization Tutorial - Worth1000 Tutorials
Candice, that is an awesome tutorial. Thanks for posting it for everyone. It is probably the more correct/ common way to do a colorization, but a bit different from how I do it. It's fun watching youtube vids of how everyone was taught or ways they figured out that work best for them though!
I think for the first time since I started colorizing, I recently got kind of bored with it, and decided to take a short break from it all. (as I do other colorizations aside from just ones here). Glad I did tho...nothing great but I whipped this one up today and actually enjoyed doing it!
Thank you kindly for the helpful tip and I'm sure I will be using it. The photo looks much better that way!
