It looks just like a still from an early Technicolor movie!

I do almost 100% of my graphic work in photoshop. I am a certified photoshop expert and colorization was one of the latest continuing education lessons.

Ron, this is done 100% in photoshop, element by element. This particular photo took me about a half day to complete (amazing what you can do when you are unemployed.
Thank you again mr. bush for giving my job to some fellow in india!
