Pity about the coloring

I should be in bed already but I couldn't resisit having a quick shot at this one. It is a lovely photo and it is a pity it has been colored rather badly already. It is most noticeable on the tunic and neck areas. Also if you look closely at the hairline you will see parts that have been missed. And the coloring is too flat. Some of the color has gone over the bottom half of the right eye giving it a misty look. Having said that in the hands of a skilful colorer (and there are some really good ones in this forum) it could could come alive again. Perhaps you could post it as a challenge.

Hi Neb, had a quick go at it (well a couple of hours) but my restoration and colouring is a little rusty - and my masking is nowhere near as good as it used to be.
I dont usually post stuff I'm not happy with but since this pic is so special to you - here you go, maybe you can do something with it
