Re: Where to start with this.

Hello...
First post here.
The poor little guy was not a happy camper.
Here's my attempt. I just worked on his head cuz I've got to get some work done.
Not a lot of info in the dark spaces. I wonder if the original has more.
Lightened and cloned.

My Try...

A lot of drawing.. dodging and burning... copy paste.

It's my first restoration... I thought I should give it a try.

Let me know what you think... Very small file to work with.

Re: Where to start with this.

Hi there

I had a wee play with the little chap. Mainly cloning and trying to gently follow the shadings and contours suggested in the photo. The eye restore was assisted by using the other eye to a degree. I've not worried too much about the background, the image is so small I didn't want to try for a total look at all.

But .. it's doable!

Re: Where to start with this.

Second try and I'd call it an interpretation of or impression of rather than a strict restoration. I think preserving the original presentation is quite important especially as there appears to be half a date at the bottom of the border. There's also partial writing at the top .. these could be significant at some stage.

However ... I tried to tidy up my previous attempt a little and cheated with background and frame.
