I'm brand new to this site (just got confirmed today) and I have about 130 old black and white pictures of girls and porn that I have colored for myself. In addition I have colored a number of old images for the family running up to 100+ years old. I will gladly do some coloring for anyone (I'm retired and have a lot of time on my hands) just realize that there's a limited amount of time in the day and my schedule doesn't allow me to work on this all day. I am including several examples of my work, I trust many of you will recognize the originals. (I'm pretty new at this, so I hope the images get through ok). Please note: the originals are much larger, I cut them down cause I thought I needed to for this display.

Smile Color for Spooled

Hey, spooled, this one's for you. Hope bruno86 doesn't mind that I stole his thunder, but I like working on lovely ladies. This one goes in my collection too. If you want any color changes, let me know (red background, yellow shirt, etc.). Note: I cleaned off that line at the bottom, it looked like an old picture border. Let me know if you like that change.

Red face Finished pictures for mlorenc

Hi again. I've been off line for the last 18 hours because a fierce thunderstorm cut off my internet access point. Maybe affected more than just mine because the post office said their system was belly up. Anyway, below are the two finished pictures for mlorenc. I'd like to point out that this is a 'erotic' site and putting three pictures of fully dressed women on a request seems out of the ordinary. I'd really rather get a nude to do. But, they are good looking women, and they are women.
Bruno: P.S. is a shorthand term for 'post script' meaning notes after the main body of the message. As for how I get them, a new tool called snipping in Win7, but as with the first pict I did, some are too big and need to be imported in two pieces then patched together in my processing.
No, I don't use MSN and am not familiar with the other terms you used. It seems to me there may be a back door method of communicating on this site since I see a 'private message waiting' button at the top of the home page. I don't know how to use it though.
Finally, the results you've all been waiting for:

Thumbs up Colorizing debate

While we're waiting for something else to come up, I'd like to weigh in on the colorizing debate. Yes, many times artists/photographers/directors chose to make their medium in black and white, and I respect those choices. However, you need to realize that choice was not always available. Before the 1930's, there was no such thing as color film. Even when color became available, it was not used because of the expense, it was a lot more costly than b&w. During the 40's, 50's and 60's, most magazines that would publish nudes (and many others like 'Life') were b&w. A photographer who was a businessman chose to reduce his cost since the finished product was going to be monochrome anyway.
Another reason for chosing b&w over color was the range of the film. Color film would only show clearly one f-stop above and below the setting of the camera while b&w would provide discrimination to plus and minus 3 stops. If you're shooting in the sun, with well lit areas and very dark shadows, b&w was the medium of choice; you could see thing in the picture which color film would not capture. So often, the use of b&w was a technical limitation, one of necessity.
I remember reading one time that color films were offered during the very early 1900's. Their production was as a plain b&w, then someone sat down and colorized each frame of the film individually, and had to do so for many copies of the film. Despite the obvious expense, these films made money because people would pay a premium to see them.
I have colored some old family pictures including one of my great-grandmother which was probably taken around 1890, and my family loves it My mother, who died last year in her 90's enjoyed seeing the old pictures renewed in color.

Smile More colorizing and a little debate

More results, two new pictures for DEB JORDAN FAN. @bruno - I also slightly reworked the floor performer for mlorenc as per your request and beg to differ with you on a few points. My mother was a graduate of University of California in Berkley and we went to see several of their football (our football, not yours) games. The school colors were blue and gold and the last time the cheerleaders were wearing costumes exactly the same color as I drew. In addition this is obviously a performance and such costumes tend to be flashy. Lipstick: based on the hairdo I placed the date in the 80's and picked a subduded shade similar to what women were wearing then in this country. Of course the banner in back indicates another country. Legs: look closely, I did color the legs. But based on the lightness of her complection otherwise and the darkness of her stockings, my experience is that very little color shows. Compare her legs to the b&w banner in the background to see the color. But to satisfy my mentor, I did tone down the blue and a revision follows.

Big Grin bushw1ck and bigbird, your ship came in

Two more happy customers (we hope). Anyone else want into this queue, send your stuff. Demand is kind of low lately, although DEB JORDAN FAN seems to be able to keep us in business all by himself.

Thumbs up

Very impressive work both of you, but is it possible to tell what some of the colours actually were from a black and white image or do you sometimes have to guess? This is in no way a criticism, I have a non adult themed image that I would like to decipher.
