Thanks for the kind invitation, but I think not this time.

Have fun, and count your hair now, I suspect there'll be a good deal less of it by the time you've finished with this one.

hehe, cute, hroadhog

candy, i've worked on this a little bit and i'm finding that airbrushing is the most useful tool so far. i set this at a very low opacity, like 2-3% and spray over an area and build up. all on a blank layer, of course. color pick often so as not to get that pasty look and you might even set the density down quite a bit to leave/give some texture.

i'd also suggest some uniform searches on google. parts of that clothing are just going to be complete guesses otherwise.

obviously, it's a very tricky image but i think you're going to be surprised just how nicely it can clean up, especially if you can find a matching uniform.

Looks like you have some work on you hands.
First thoughts, without seeing the original:
The background should be repaired, not replaced.

candy,

been working on this a bit and thought i'd post what i have so far and see what you think. it's definitely a tricky one. havent even tried to do the uniform other than a bit of rough on the hat.

this is all clone, push and airbrushing. no filters.

I did a search for some photos you could use as a guide if need be and found this one. The link will take you to the large version.

I found the first photo at the library of congress that may serve as a great photo to borrow the uniform from if you decide to go that route (might want to look around as there may be other photos you could use)...

Library of Congress

A google search turned this one up...

Another Picture

This looks like a tough one and WAY beyond me. Good Luck!
