I told you I had a couple of projects in mind. This first one is just for fun. I was watching a TV show on the history channel called ‘The American Civil War In Color’. They used advanced coloring technology to add color to hundreds of Civil War era photographs. I thought that sounded like fun, so I am going to try it in Photoshop with this picture.
I can turn this into a tutorial kind of thing for anyone who is interested, telling you what brushes and tools I used, and the settings. But I won’t bother if you don’t ask.
So far, all I did was add a base layer of yellowish-brown. I will gradually darken it up, but let some of the bright color show through as highlights… hopefully.
Here is what I did so far…
Not really much to see yet, but I am hoping this gets more and more lifelike.
I will intersperse this project with posts about my other new venture. Maybe some of one or the other will interest some of you.
