Otmafan - Wonderful job - I especially like the blue that you've decided to use.  Good idea about starting another thread :)

Good idea for the new thread :) Here's my latest! I'm really proud of this one, it turned out really well!

BTW, otmafan those are ADORABLE! :) Those are Kyril's daughters, correct? Their shirts seem to be quite low, but maybe that was the fashion for children?

Thanks lostfan!

Yup, those are the daughters of Ducky and Kyril. I agree that their shirt are quite low. I believe there is another thread examining why, but I don't think we know yet.

BTW, I love your photo of Alix and the girls!

Lostfan and Mandie - beautiful work on the pictures, gals!  Keep it up :)   Mandie - love the avatar of your colored picture of Anastasia!

About Ducky and Kyril's daughters..... here's the thread where there was some discussion about their fashions:

Post by: bluetoria on April 07, 2005, 06:03:43 PM
They are the daughters of Frederick August of Oldenburg & Elizabeth Alexandrine of Mecklenburg-Schwerin.

Ingeborg (1901-1996) married Stephan of Schaumburg-Lippe in 1921.
Altburg (1903-2001) married Josias of Waldeck & Pyrmont (1896-1967) He was arrested for war crimes as a Nazi & sentenced to life imprisonment but released on health grounds in 1950. He died 17 years later.  :-/

Isn't Marina's face interesting - as well as beautiful.   Given the fact each side of everybody's face is different to the other - I have never see the two sides so different as hers.   Its almost like two different people stuck together.

Such beautiful work!

Tsaria, Eastern medicine believes that one side of the face has elements of the mother, the other, of the father. Looking closely, it seems to be true.

For me, it depends on the amount of detail in the photograph.
Title: Re: Colored Photos III
Post by: nerdycool on April 17, 2005, 01:43:22 PM
With me, it's kind of hard to say. I do them in my downtime at work, so I start and stop A LOT. If there's not too much going on in the picture, I'd say about 1-1.5 hours total. If it is a busier picture, it's more like 3-5 hours total...sometimes more, sometimes less. It's definitely a labor of love for me.

Great job Lanie! That is one of my most favorite pictures of Anastasia! I love the matching one of Maria you did a while back...great job!

Wow, I haven't colored anything in a while...been busy.  :)

It usually takes me one hour for an average picture, or more for a group picture or a very detailed one. Here is my newest, of Alexandra.

Thanks moonlight-tsarina! I think the girls look stunning in pink, which is why I chose it.

I know this has probabaly been said enough times but all those photos are so amazing im just curious but how long do they take to do on average?

Ok
I must be a real slo-mo
It takes me days to work on a pic, but I only get a few hours a day to work on them

Post by: Angie_H on April 20, 2005, 06:30:31 AM
Question for those who use Photo Shop

When you are using it and you close the pic for the time being, when you re-open the pic do you get weird little blocks on the pic?

If you look really close at Louis' pant legs in this pic you can see what I mean. They won't be there when I close the pic out for the night. But when I pull it up the next day these blocks appear

Post by: Val289 on April 20, 2005, 10:36:28 AM
Angie - did you color that picture?  Because, if you did - it's just beautiful! :o :D  About the blocks..........I've had that happen to me several times, on just standard pictures.  I've never found a reason for it, so, I'm afraid I can't be of any help.  Hopefully someone out there knows and can provide us with an answer :)

-Val :)
Title: Re: Colored Photos III
Post by: Angie_H on April 20, 2005, 11:05:01 AM
Yup, that's one of mine
Maybe it is the format I save it as?
I usually save my pics as JPEGs while working on them

You know, it might be the format.  If I recall correctly - I usually save any pictures as JPEGs.  When I went back and changed it to a BMP, it seemed to not have the block problem.  However, I know that some places (perhaps photobucket?) require the pictures to be in JPEG format before uploading too.....
Title: Re: Colored Photos III
Post by: Angie_H on April 20, 2005, 11:26:42 AM
Yes, Photobucket requires them to be JPEGs.
So maybe next time I'll try working on it in a different format, then when completely done, save it in as a JPEG.

I wish I could help with the block problem, but I can't say it's ever happened to me. I usually save them as jpgs. I don't know what difference it would have on this, but what version of Photoshop are you using? Full, Limited, Educational?

P.S. - I'll have another picture up pretty soon... it's about 80% done.

If you save them as .psd if you have to stop mid-color, all your layers are saved and you might not have the boxes. You can save it as .jpg or .png once you've finished.

Here's one I did of HRH Princess Ileana of Roumania, which I'm quite proud of:

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v377/queenscover/royalty/ileana.png

One thing I'm having trouble with is jewelry. I couldn't find a good color to use for the pearls, so they're rather bland. Also, most of the golden bracelets, necklaces, etc. that I do turn out quite yellowish. What do you guys do to make the gold in the bracelets stand out more? Aside, excellent job everybody! :] I'm finishing up one of Prince John that hopefully I can post soon!

otmafan - I see the one of Olav now!  I must second Moonlight_Tsaria's opinon that it's one of your bests!  Thanks for posting :)

lostfan - the one of Princess Ileana is stunning  :o!  I just love it :)

Lanie - as usual you are quite a master of this art!  This one of Olga is quite beautiful, and you do so well -even when the original quality isn't the best.  Keep it up, and maybe one day we will see one of your colorized versions on the cover of a Romanov book :)

I must concede to that you all make a great work colorizing the B&W photos. Though for an old grumbling man as myself it´s lost labour with all this hollywoodization. My imagination is vivid enough to see the colours in the B&W photos. Hopefully the original photos are saved somewhere on this board.

I like very much the pic of Astrid of Sweden. She is gorgeous...But I think she is a curious mix between Tatiana and Maria, not only Tatiana...Look at her! ;)

I love the new pics guys!  The one of Olga is incredibly realistic!  I don't know how you do it, nerdycool! :o  I did that one too and I thought it came out pretty well, but certainly not compared to that one. :-[  Astrid is quite a pretty girl.  She does seem to have a mix of both Tatiana and Maria.  She doesn't possess the fully exotic and unique look of Tatiana nor the generous features of Maria, but she does look like a morph between the two! How strange!  Maybe that's what Tatiana's daughter would've looked like if she had had one.  How is Astrid related to OTMA?

I think they were very distantly related through Astrid's mother Ingeborg of Denmark.

Beatiful work, Merrique! The "Little Pair" is simply wonderful in this photo! I would like very much to post photos here, but I've not a photobucket account...and I'm idiotic, but I don't know how to colour old photographies...And it's a pity for they look WONDERFUL once you colour them.

 Congratulations again, Merrique!

Everyone is doing a great job, I love all of the latest photos! ;D

Not my best effort (very time consuming), but alas, here it is...OTMAA in court dress. I went with pink for their dresses, though I was wanting to do gold, too. I've seen pictures of both colors.
