Mar. 23 2015: Followup to Coloring the Past

Man with Cat 2

This weekend I worked on my 19th Century Union soldier with holding a cat. With the exception of the gold trim around the frame, I tried to keep my hues muted. I gained a real appreciation for the artists who do this regularly. I still think my skin tones look like they were painted on, but a real artist would be able to blend subtle shifts of color and shade to make the photo look like it was natural. Skin tone was real difficult, and I think I will avail myself of the website that has natural skin-tone samples. It was painstaking work (blessed be the history panel), but I think there are lots of opportunities to grow my photoshop skills if I keep working at it.
