When this pretty lady appeared on Shorpy last year I thought the photo would be a good subject for colorizing. I worked on this during December, really for my own amusement, but with the recent spate of colorized Shorpy images I thought it might be interesting to compare.
I used Adobe Illustrator CS3, NOT your traditional photo-manipulation program, and was aiming for the classic hand-tinted postcard effect, not hyper-realism. View full size.

Nice job.

The coloring looks pretty "natural" for the time. But I'm not an expert in such things. The choice of hair color raises an eyebrow tho. :)
