You may want to do a little research. Where was the image taken, what the the most likely type of horse, what color are they. Based on the luminosity of the horses hair, it was likely a light tan to a dull white. Since you said this was done for a class, it may not be possible to tell. So, then you're left with either leaving it white (aartist's interpretation looks good) or a light tan.

looking at this photo again, this might be a good one to take to a black and white and then do a complete colorization. just a thought.

Yep, this was done in class.

I took it down to a very light sepia and then recolored, as per my professor's instructions.

==========================================

I tried again after reading some of the advice here. Did I do any better?

Re: Repaired and recolored - how did I do?

hi khaki,

i took your last image and worked on it a bit. i first added a bit more skin color to the exposed areas, hands, face, ankle. i did this with airbrush on a blank layer, gaussian blur at 16, erased overflow and set layer to color blend.

on a new blank layer above that, i did some more airbrushing, this time to the hair. it's too solid, so i added some shadows/streaks to give it a more natural look. i did a little smudge on that and then erased heavy areas with a very light eraser.

on the portion to the right of the saddle, on the horse, i painted that area on a blank layer, too, this time to take the very bright white down just a bit. gaussian, erase, color blend mode.

copy merge and paste as new layer.

duplicate that layer.

masked the sweater so it wouldnt be affected and then ran paint shop pro's digital camera noise removal tool on the rest.

blank layer and clean up dots and specks with 'push' brush.

copy merge and paste as new layer.

on that layer, i made a selection of just her hair and used a hue/sat adjustment to alter the color.

and that was pretty much it.

I've had a quick go, the skin seems pale and very light magnolia, i've worked on the face and done light work on the hand and legs.

I like what you've done to the child's hair it looks good.
