I've been perusing your recent postings with interest. Tell us more about your colorization process, both in this poster image, and in the others that have a 'hand-colored' look.

it not hard or even very complicated... a little time consuming sometimes and frustrating but fairly straight forward. this freeware program http://www.photofiltre.com/ does the background and base colors like starting with a old photo sepia tint, then maybe add a sunset filter which turns it red then tarnish the whole thing to fade it.

then I have a program called...photocolorizer it is nothing but a tint pen program. I didn't want to use the photo studio program. I have it but I off loaded it I didn't want to invest the time in learning how to use the whole thing.

Photo colorizer was a shareware program I bought for under $40 I think it might have been even less.,

After that I tarnish the color again in photofilter and it might need a little gama adjustment but nothing serious.

Im sure you can do it all in photoshop or even paintshoppe pro but I just like to do it this way.

Lately I have begun to do a little bit of air brush over a sepia type tint to give just parts of it a little color. I should add that each one is done a little differently. But those are the basic tools and techniques.
