Thank you, Isabelle! It's a lovely picture of her, isn't it? Her outfit seems very Regency-ish to me, I wonder if it was a costume for a fancy-dress costume ball, because there are several pictures of Elizabeth attired for those sorts of things.

A rather bad one of Alix:

Wow, you haven't? There are two versions of that picture:
http://nd01.jxs.cz/771/582/780cf4e022_44826209_o2.jpg the better known one
and: http://nd01.jxs.cz/000/778/a50ed4e21a_44826154_o2.jpg the one I coloured
(Photos courtesy of  http://otma.blog.cz)
There are very subtle differences to them, one being Anastasia's legs. I prefer the second picture because it seems more relaxed and intimate.
Thank you for your kind words, it means a lot to me!

Your welcome. Have you notice the caption at the bottom, circa.1910? Aren't those things funny when you know that it was 1913? Anyway, here is a new one:

Lovely!  :) For me all these gorgeous colorings seem to bring out things in the photos I never noticed much before, such as cute little toddler Anastasia's shoes. The colored photos also seem to make the Romanovs more accessable, if that makes sense, because they're in color like present day photos.  It makes me realize more, "The little Imperial children actually sat on that sofa, actually smiled a little for the camera just like that, over a hundred years ago." It just makes them more real, I suppose.

nicely done and cute!! ...I quite agree. Colouring the photos, or in my case, painting from  them , causes one look more deeply at the whole photo and bring many details to our attention that usual go unnoticed. It becomes a treasure hunt and a big part of the fun!=)

wow thanks to your colouring I can see the dresses better than before! ....looks like they were in a silk dress and then a sheer gauze like "coat"   with garnets ( or something shiny) and embroidery  was worn over the top . But the foundation dress is quite plain. This reminds me how they wore lace garments over  simple dresses as children

WOW ladies, like seriously breath taking!

All of you do such a wonderful job & couple of things that stood out to me from just a moment ago...

Tatiana Z) That may be the best colored photo of Anastasia I've ever seen! Already both a beautiful and famous picture of her I wasn't really sure it could be improved upon until now...thanks so much for sharing!

Yelena) The "Big Pair" photos are just ridiculous...like unmatched beauty there! If I wasn't so much already it would be the easiest thing in the world to fall in love with them via this photograph :-)

I'm sure you mean to say the photograph of them in mourning is especially good, not the fact that they are mourning being good a thing, lol :-)

Yes Yelena, lovely as usually :-) Thanks for adding even more vibrancy to the ever colorful OTMAA!

I must say the truth, I admire you all for the good work you do with color photos. I know the difficulties of this technique and I find you ALL very good. If sometimes I express an opinion on a particular photo is mostly because I like the subject. Do not are judgments on the substance of the work ! Bye Bye

Thank you ladies!!  :D Ohh!! WOW!!! Isabelle all are amazing but your last one really impressed me!!! About your request of the b&w of Maria at 1914, here you are... but it has some ugly watermark that I quit to it when I colored it... if you wish I can try to delete again the watermark and send it to you through PM, just tell me.
Here's the original one

Olga and Tatiana's colorings look just as lovely as your others when you were practicing, Ally. And welcome back!

Welcome to the forum, Alianora! It certainly is a great place for learning about the Romanovs and other royals.
I agree with blessOTMA, the blue of Anastasia's dress is very pretty. And those pearls! I've never been able to color pearl necklaces without it going off the pearls. Well done especially for your first colored picture! (I love your avatar, by the way. Did you color that too?)

When a photo colouring can show one something about the photo that might have gone other wise unnoticed, that is a great job imo.

Thanks, everyone!  I have some more to post, but they're on my other computer.  Hope to get them up tomorrow. 

and no, MademoiselleAndrea, I didn't color that one.  I found it on a website called Women in History, I think.  The image is a Victorian imagining of Eleanor of Aquitaine, who is the inspiration for my screen name - Alianora is a Latin variation of Eleanor (Eleanor was originally spelled Alienor). The website had similar images of most of England's queens from Matilda of Flanders through the Tudors.  I have found black and white versions of most of them, so I can play with them myself.  And thanks for the compliment about the pearls - jewelry is so hard to color.

I have played with coloring other images from the same period of the early Queens.  Another early coloring I did is an image of Matilda of Flanders watching her husband's ships set sail to conquer England.

Some more colorized images -

This is the same image as my avatar, colorized by me - http://www.flickr.com/photos/8996413@N07/7316551898/

The original colorized version that my avatar comes from can be found at http://0.tqn.com/d/womenshistory/1/0/8/p/2/Eleanor-of-Aquitaine.jpg

Another image of Eleanor of Aquitaine - http://www.flickr.com/photos/8996413@N07/7316549834/

Queen Victoria and Prince Albert - http://www.flickr.com/photos/8996413@N07/7316522358/ and http://www.flickr.com/photos/8996413@N07/7316471260/.  These two images were colored for a personal project I'm working on, hence the frames around the images.  I'm particularly happy with how Albert turned out.

Marie Antoinette (this was the 2nd image I colored) - http://www.flickr.com/photos/8996413@N07/7316477256/

Karoline Auguste of Bavaria, Queen Consort of Austria (wife of Franz I) - http://www.flickr.com/photos/8996413@N07/7316409020/  The shading of the b/w drawing made it difficult to do her skin.

Alix of Hesse in 1889 - http://www.flickr.com/photos/8996413@N07/7316399078/  This is the most complex picture I've done so far.    I'm not happy with the couch, but it was difficult to do because the contrast in that part of the original b/w image wasn't very good.

Keep up the great work everyone!

Nice job Jen! The picture of the Romanovs in England must have been the visit portrayed in "The Lost Prince" mini-series. I could never figure out what year this is from though. I've heard it referenced as 1908 but that seems too early to me. Hard to tell but Alexei looks a little older than 3 1/2 or 4 no?
Title: Re: Coloured pictures XXXVI
Post by: Jen_94 on June 02, 2012, 06:19:32 PM
Thanks so much!

According to http://www.alexanderpalace.org/palace/cowes1909.html (http://www.alexanderpalace.org/palace/cowes1909.html) it was 1909 they went to England, so Alexei was about 5.

Thanks so much!

According to http://www.alexanderpalace.org/palace/cowes1909.html (http://www.alexanderpalace.org/palace/cowes1909.html) it was 1909 they went to England, so Alexei was about 5.

Good research job there Jen, thank you!

This makes sense based on the photo. Less sense when you actually watch the scene of the Romanov visit in "The Lost Crown" as some of the actors playing the royal children were clearly older than they would have been in 1909. There is one girl who is a dead ringer lookalike (to my eyes at least) for Maria Nikolaevna. But the actresses really couldn't pass well for a ten year old. 1911 or '12 it would have had to been to make sense.

Haha you know me too well...yes indeed, "Lost Prince" not crown. In the "Lost Crown" there is no confusion with dates and ages :-)

My latest pic, colored this evening while watching a really BAD baseball game.  I love my team, but tonight.... 

This is one of my two favorites of Anastasia and Alexei (the other being where they are in a chair together and she's hugging him).

Cute Alianora!

I'm guessing that bad baseball game you speak of was your Rangers last night? Eight run second innings will do that, ugh!
Title: Re: Coloured pictures XXXVI
Post by: Alianora on June 05, 2012, 06:29:31 PM
Thanks, edubs31. 

Yes, it was the Rangers.  That's what you get when your replacement pitcher isn't worthy of the starting role.  Hopefully tonight's pitcher will be better, even though he pitched the disastrous game last week when we gave up 8 in the 2nd and 8 in the 3rd to the Mariners.

I can tell that you're all quietly (very quietly) impressed by my colouring, and that you're secretly screaming out for more. So...

Here's the nice family portrait from 1913. Sure, we've all seen it a thousand times before, but not quite, because this is a composite of three (different quality) images, plus a bit drawn in at the bottom. And a yellow rose. Cunningly clever huh? I knew you'd think so ;)

On the strength of this picture, can we now dispense with the formalities and sort of make me a four-star Velikye Knyaz right away? Or at least present me with a fitting cyber medal... the order of St Valdimir would do quite nicely, I feel. :))

I'm not sure what I've seen more times...this photograph or my own face in the mirror, but you put a nice spin on it.

Four stars eh? I needed like 350-360 ACTUAL posts before I got rewarded with my "Boyar" certification so you're going to have a tough time convincing me there pal! :-)

Post by: Honest John on June 23, 2012, 10:18:35 AM

I see your point. Perhaps four stars on the strength of one pretty picture was asking for too much in these dark times of austerity. Drat.

Once upon a time you only had to salute the Tsar and kiss the Tsarina's hand and you got given a medal, it seems to me. I hope Tsar Bob and Tsarina Rob get to notice me soon. um... Just kidding... I swear! :)) *Hides under table*

As a special treat for the weekend, Nursey is letting me post another. "Hooray" I hear you all cry. :(

This is another familiar one with a bit added each side to widen the picture. I think it's fairly accurate 'cos I used three original photos to make it and then guesstimated the missing bits.

Post by: blessOTMA on July 04, 2012, 03:05:02 AM
Sorry, it was MY English that was the trouble! lol!

Does the colouring programs have a function that allows you to put on
a nearly transparent  colour  that would enhance the main color.

For instance Nicholas's  red coat...could one place a slight dark brown on it first, that
would make the red shadows richer when that color went on ....that's how it done with paints.
The "undercoat " (in English we call a layer of paint ,"a coat"  of paint ) can effect the look
of the  "overcoat" (  the color on top, in this case : Red ) I wondered if computer coloring  allows one to do the same?

Basically I'm saying  that I would paint the shadows of Nicholas's tunic a brown...and so when I painted  the red colour , the shadows of the garment would be richer, than if I just painted the red...and I wondered if one can do that in coloring photos?

 GrandDuchessIsabelle, this is an issue I'm dealing with right now myself, the whites of the eyes ...your  work is wonderful but the "whites of the eyes"  are too white (just imo =) We say, " whites of the eyes"  buy really they aren't white at all. This is particularly true in these photos  because the girls  faces are in shadow...so the "whites" become even darker as it were. What one can do for a face in shadow is have the "whites" slightly lighter  than the  the face ,  with a lighter still gleam at the highest point of the eye ball.  That also gives it a 3_D effect .

Other wise they are great and I hope you don't mind my comment.

But a pleasant "thank you" to those complimenting you on your efforts doesn't hurt as well...just saying.

This is great...those whites and that ocean blue have brilliance. Feels like I'm the one standing there snapping that picture. Love Olga's smile in this picture as well. Just a perfect pose!

Nice work!

Lord those are great Ally! OTMA one especially...feels like I'm the one snapping the photograph on that sunny afternoon.

I feel they were told to look distracted and of course their true personalities shone through. Olga busying herself with something. Tatiana looking like the proper princess. Anastasia being the imp and looking like she can't be bothered. Marie trying to figure out a pose but can't help to look and give a little smile to the camera :-) Definitive photo and really brought to life here!

Congratulations!  :) It is a beautiful coloring!! Did the magazine discover your fabulous talent via deviantART? Forgive my ignorance, but since it says "Frantiska Ferdinanda" I'm assuming this is Franz Ferdinand (whose 1914 assassination started WWI) and his family? I should know this, I know!  :-[

Thank you all!

Yes, they contacted me through DA :)

Czech version of "Franz" is "František" and "Františka" is actually a variation of the name that has to be done when it is used in this way in a sentence. Czech is hard to learn ;)

Ally, your ability to colour within  the deep shadows is remarkable. You add colour, but
still keep what is called the " tone " of the shadow area as it should be... bravo!
Title: Re: Coloured pictures XXXVI
Post by: edubs31 on February 18, 2013, 10:51:50 AM
I agree Ally. Rarely do you create something where the color looks blatantly artificial to me.

You're so good in fact that you may be unintentionally misleading. There are probably so many Romanov fans new to the subject who just assume there to be a stockpile of color photos of the IF. We can only hope Tatiana Z and company can someday dig those up for us...until then your colorations are as close to reality as it gets!

The above picture recently made its way to my Facebook page because I've "Liked" a particular page (Almanac Gotha, I believe).  The beautifully colored gown on Alix reminded me of the Victorian mauve she liked so very much.  I am currently involved in a sewing project using second hand sari's to create different things (see www.sarifixation.com for specifics).  I created a gown from a mauve and gold sari that I think Alexandra would have been proud to have worn.  The border design even features something which looks very much like the symbol for the cherubim; something which plays in the worship of the Russian Orthodox Church.

As I haven't posted pictures or url's here for a long time, I hope I am doing this correctly.  To view my creation, and the doll I created to resemble Alix, you can go to: http://www.sarifixation.com/show_proj.php?action=show&target=85 (http://www.sarifixation.com/show_proj.php?action=show&target=85)

If I did my photo album on Shutterfly correctly, you can also see one of the pictures there:

Oh... this is so depressing... I can never seem to get images to work correctly. :-(  Well... the website link worked anyway.  You can see the pictures of the dress there, but not the picture of Alix with her family in her mauve and gold dress.

Best regards,

Sure :) one day when I get the dress done – maybe in a year lol. so far its  half  done, got the stuff but since I’m new at sewing and using no patterns since there is none, it’s hard, I get a doll dress that is puffy and sliverly ball gown (but mordern) from Michaels (an art store) which was $7 American dollars - which I cut, mended and pull inside out to make some value in the shirt, and made a bodice with it and added fake fur I now have to repair, and still having issues making a train but made an awesome Kokoshnik with fake pearls with I am still working on... and I use American girl doll height and such..There 18 inches doll which is kind of easy to find things for it. The dress is sliver and a dusty pink like the real ones. However mine has fur trim, pearls, jewelry design patterns more like the adult Russian court dresses.

Mandie,
It sounds like you're on your way to making something very special.  If you require any sewing hints, let me know.  You can reach me through my website, finding my email address there: www.agesdesigns.com
There are a number of sewing books I can recommend. Many doll fashion designers use paper towels to create the patterns, because you can just fit them to the doll body, trace around the arm holes, and cut - but you have to remember to add a seam allowance (generally 1/4 inch for dolls).

Love all these colored pictures because they can really make the costumes "pop" and one can visualize how a garment could look more easily.  All of you are amazing artists!  Wish I could color photos as you do.

All the best,
Tasha_R

Thank you, Yelena, and everyone for your kind compliments.  I just found out last night that the dress was selected as a finalist in the contest, so we'll see what happens from here!

These colored pictures are great inspiration.  I do believe that there is a doll thread on this site; I've been doing some research to find out more about the dolls that OTMA owned, so I came across it once or twice, and it included replies about modern dolls that look like the family.

Sincerest regards,

Nice touch there Clockworkgirl. Because of the grainy, somewhat substandard, quality of the original photo your coloration actually comes off looking more authentic to me. Like an older 1960-70s color home video type deal. I find it interesting and keep waiting for someone to push the play button :-)

Kassy, TatianaZ and TheMauveRoom , your photos are all fantabulous (fantastic & fabulous)!!!

Kassy - I love the skin color you use. Whether it is light pink or peachy-pink, it looks much real! The Judy Garland photo you colored doesn't look photoshop-colored - it's as if taken by a color camera!
TheMauveRoom - Loving that Olga and Tatiana you colored!
TatianaZ - The background of your photos are great! It is as if they were the real backgrounds of the original ones : )

And may I have the b&w for this? Thank you very much in advance!

Though I enjoy the colorizing of this photo, especially Nicholas, it really does make them look almost decades younger than they were, or younger than they looked, in 1917. Life in general, and particularly the stress they experienced , had prematurely aged them both, most notably Alexandra.


My view of the date on the right, "19??" leaves the date in question for me.

I agree with Rodney. Your colorations are lovely, but are we sure this is 1917? Looks more like N&A in 1907, or perhaps even earlier.
Title: Re: Coloured pictures XXXVI
Post by: Rodney_G. on December 02, 2013, 05:28:40 PM
Yes. Although the date could be the year "19something", it could be a conventional European dating, in which it's : day/month/year, in which case, the date might be the 19th of any month in any year. Even if it's a year in the 1900s, I don't quite see the "17" part. (  though admittedly there are sharper eyes than mine).

Post by: edubs31 on December 03, 2013, 07:32:21 AM
Hmmm. The evidence is surely there Tatiana Z, but these one's still don't sit well with me...

Is it possible that these are older pictures that were presented as gifts in 1917? Perhaps Easter or a birthday? Of course we all know they were under house arrest by the latter-half of March that year making for a tight window to have had these photos taken (considering how often Nicholas was gone at the front) and to distribute it as a gift.

Assuming that it is indeed 1917, where are those "streaks of gray" in the hair of both N&A everyone talks about? The lines on the face of a tired and weary Tsar don't seem at all apparent. Guards stationed at the palace talk about Alexandra having looked like an elderly woman not long after this time (assuming these photos were indeed taken in early-1917). But if you look at the two subjects in these photos you don't see any of that. You see a healthy and rather youthful looking pre-middle aged couple.

I'll see about digging up some other photos of Nicholas from that time to compare. Yes, he certainly would have aged some from all of the stress endured over those first few months of 1917, but aged a decade or more in a few months? It's not like things in January or February were all happy-go-luck either for the imperial couple.
Title: Re: Coloured pictures XXXVI
Post by: Rodney_G. on December 05, 2013, 04:44:06 PM
TatianaZ's larger , date-included photo of N&A would seem definitive, but I still have trouble with that date. Do I believe my lying eyes or not?

Is it possible that the photo in question was from an earlier year, and yet entered into a 1917 album? We know the IF spent a lot of time together while in captivity going over their photos and working on albums. I find this  possible , though  not most probable.

As it is, I think this photo, when placed next to others known to be from the 1917 captivity (or even Jan/Feb.), would seem jarringly out of place. I can more readily see either or both N and A with a very young Alexei or Anastasia in his/her arms.
Title: Re: Coloured pictures XXXVI
Post by: edubs31 on December 05, 2013, 05:44:14 PM
I did read somewhere recently that as a departing keepsake Alexandra gave Anna Vyrubova a portrait of the imperial couple. Supposedly it was when Anna and Lili Dehn were leaving Alexander Palace (Anna under arrest and being taken to the Fortress of Peter & Paul) during the early stages of captivity.

Is it possible that one of these could have been that portrait? If so, is it equally possible that Alexandra would have given her a photo not taken recently but something from the couple's past...a picture of them that she always liked and then dated it "1917" as to indicate the year it was being given as gift rather then when the photo itself was taken?

If not, do we have any record of the imperial couple setting up a professional photo shoot of themselves in early-1917? Not that it takes much time to dress up and pose for the camera, but given the circumstances it strikes me as a little odd. They were mourning Rasputin's death in January and then dealing with the growing civil unrest and losses at the front in February/March. Are there other professional photos of the family from this time period that I'm not thinking of?

Yes, agreed. As I mentioned in a post above there was apparently a keepsake or two given by Alexandra & Nicholas to Anna Vyrubova when she was placed under arrest and removed from Tsarskoe Selo by the Provisional Government. I read that one of these items included a photograph of the imperial couple. Perhaps one of these could be it?

It seems likely that Alix would have given her friend a nice flattering photo taken years earlier during happier times for the family. Then they could have simply signed and dated it (in this case just the year, 1917). It's not unlike one of us given an older book as a gift on our birthdays or a holiday. The book could have been the possession of an older relative but the inside cover still could have been signed and dated for when it was given as a gift many years later. I have some such items from my aunts/uncles and grandparents. Copyright 1952, signed "Happy Birthday, 1989. Love, Grandmom"

Post by: KarinK on December 10, 2013, 09:40:52 AM
This photo of Nicholas is dated 1902. The uniform is the same, and judging by his hair and beard I think this could be from the same session as the photos with Alexandra. The speculation that they might have been farewell gifts signed in 1917 but taken at an earlier date sounds very plausible to me.

Post by: edubs31 on December 10, 2013, 10:35:15 AM
Great find there Karin!

Eyeing things up closely I'm going to say these photos aren't from the same session (Nicholas's hair appears slightly longer in the first set than here), but certainly around the same time period. 1902 is actually a little further back than I was going to go, but these photos do look like a 34-year old Tsar much more than a stressed 48/49-year old which is what he would have been by early-1917.

One thing is for certain. Assuming the photo you posted is indeed from 1902, there's no way those other photos with Alix are from 1917. Nicky might have been renowned for his physical fitness but there's no way he didn't age considerably over the course of 14 to 15 years (as the previous "1917" photos would seem to suggest). We have plenty of other photographs to compare to from the abdication era, and he certainly doesn't look as youthful pre-middle age as he does here.

I have another photo in this uniform but without a date written on it.

(http://i.imgur.com/9svN4ab.jpg) (http://imgur.com/9svN4ab)

If I hadn't seen anything about the dates, I might have guessed 1900s for Nicholas and mid-to-late 1900s for Alexandra. Are the signatures papa and mama?

Looking again at the first photo I posted, the signature (Nicolas, not Nicholas or Nicky) suddenly reminded me of the photos of President Loubet's 1902 visit that show him at Peterhof and Krasnoe Selo. I don't know if they would have gone all the way to Reval from there, but that's the only royal or state visit from 1902 that I can remember.

I have some info on the photo Nicholas and Alexandra which has been in question for a while now.

In the book "Nicholas & Alexandra: The Last Imperial Family Of Tsarist Russia". the photo is listed as being taken in the late 1890s by C.E. von Hahn Photographic Studio. "Later inscriptions by Alexandra Feodorovna in black ink... 1917"

I trust this book as their captions are well put together and taken from primary sources such as letters, diaries etc. and authors such as Massey. I have found few mistakes in this book.

The costume ball pictures are both heaven and hell for any colourist, and you, Sophia, have managed to won over them! Great work!

Am rather pleased with how this one turned out, even though itīs still not as good as I hoped it would.

I do believe that's a beautiful colorization of a photo of a beautiful young girl.

I just recently started colorizing and I think it's kind of fun to do.

Great work AngelAnastasia! I particularly like the last one of OTM. Always foud that picture just precious.
Title: Re: Coloured pictures XXXVI
Post by: AngelAnastasia on May 18, 2014, 02:35:27 PM
Thanks, Ally! Yes, I always loved that picture! Whenever I see pictures of the children hugging it always tugs at my heartstrings.
Like this one of Anastasia and Alexei, so adorable yet so tragic: http://www.angelfire.com/biz5/romanovs/kids.jpg
The only reason that I didn't colorize it is because unfortunately the photo quality's pretty shaky.
Btw, I have seen some of your work on DA and love it!

After seeing this photo again, I'm  very confident that if you go to a dictionary and look up the word 'angelic' ,you'll see this pic again as a perfect illustration . Possibly alongside that earlier one of OTM hugging. With a cross-reference to 'adorable'.
