You are very very good at colouring!
Oooh I agree, love this colouring thingy!!! First one is very nice.
i agree ferny. wanna share your technique?
Noodle ... Cool photos ....... I love these ... now go to the forum on how to do tthings in PS etc. and write a tutorial and let me copy you
Great job on the portraits themselves and the coloring :thumbsup:
Ok guys, here's my secret, but don't tell anyone else....lol
There is always more than one way to skin a cat in PS, but I find this way is the easiest, especially when colouring a large area. Open your photo, copy the background to a layer. SHIFT Q changes it to quickmask mode. Select a brush, I usually choose a smaller one for edges and with a steady hand outline the area you want to colour. Select a larger brush and fill it in. You can go around the outside with the eraser and rub out any red that you don't want. SHIFT Q will select the outside of the area you have just coloured, so just desaturate, under Image/Adjustments. Flatten and save. Easy peasy lemon squeezy. Hope that all makes sense.
You may think it's easy and all that, but there's still skill there. I'm impressed by the colours you've selected as much as the way it's done. They seem... right.
Thanks for the info to.
Good job on the portrait, looks like the picture would do well either way, partial colored, all b&W or color
