I find it funny how the urls' only difference is a hyphen.

Seeing as Twain had a short stint in the Conefederate army, I figure this is semi-relevant - Mark Twain outside on what seems to be an autumn day.

Thank you, both, you're too kind.

I'm happy you like it, it was one of the longer pieces, it took about 2˝ hours in total with the longest time spent on singleing out objects in the image, and doing the face - the face was probably the hardest to get to look right, it was either too red or too desaturated, too flat, or too bright. I think I figured out a happy medium.

No problem-I think it looks pretty darn realistic.

Me too.

It's weird though, I actually hated it when Ted Turner started colorizing all those old black and white movies but this seems right somehow. It brings new life to photos that we've seen a hundred times in one way or another.

Zuzah has also done his homework. I did some checking on some of his projects because I was thinking that too many of the men had blue eyes. But when I looked up descriptions of them, he had it right. Blue eyes, brown eyes, hair color, beard color, etc...all seem to match up with contempory descriptions of the men in question. I was foolish for doubting.

I've probably said it a hundred times already but I'll say it one more time. Well done Zuzah! Keep'em coming.

I'm glad you like 'em Mr. Evans, I appreciate all the kind comments I get here. I actually get asked that about the eye color a lot, but the reason for so many blue eyed men to appear is because I go through a list of B/W images I have saved and I colorize whatever I feel like, usually choosing a blue-eyed man as that is what I think looks the most aesthetic, so usually I'll end up with 90% blue, 10% brown.

It's a curse, I tell ya.

By the way, I'm streaming for the next hour on Twitch.tv/Zuzah. I tend to stream every now and again, I usually only post when I do on my Facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/pages/Color...30760113645337

Zuzah,

Do you suppose you could tell us a little bit about how your colorize these?

Definitely!

Start out reading this tutorial:

http://civilwartalk.com/threads/blac...utorial.78508/

Then watch this tutorial for an entire person being colorized (Joseph Hooker):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yVf60pGsi9Q

You really do wanna read the tutorial first, I talk very fast in the video tutorial.
