During my suspension period, i saw some colored pictures in web, thought why not i give it a shot. I am not a master in this field just that i happened to know Photoshop and said to my self why not give it a try, here some of my work. I know it not top notch however it was fun doing it and painfully long processes, took about 5-6 hours to colored one picture. This are Random world world two picture I found on the net.
This picture was fun as the skin tone would just blend with picture it self, read it is New Zealand soldier.

Coloring this black G.I was a challenge as the skin tone was hard
this Wehrmact is really hard, there was a colored one also however his tone was really faded, i tried a lot od mixing and mode however the picture won't expect any heavy changes, i know lots can be improve

Soviet's Tank crew captured by German's soldier, funny thing about this picture is while coloring the grass found the tone for tank
What is the process for doing this? Do you just pick colors until you find something that looks right, or is there some way to tell what the color was from the B&W image?
great job. It would be great if you can do the same to pics of Indian armed forces.Like the pics of 1962 war,WWII etc etc.
Not the best as I got confused on the mirror and house colored reflection, and while saving it save an extra tone of girl that is why it giving an over colored tone

Nice stuff, a few of the colors are a bit hotter than I would have done them, but still really good work.
