Wow. Thanks. I took several wrong turns on this one and gave up twice. Took me a month to finish....

 She's such a pretty woman, Bambi.  I wanted to play with my coloring skills or lack thereof.

Most of it was hand painted, Shadow, but only in spots.  Most redheads like green so I use a green color brush set at about 35% maybe less to work on the background and a little blue, too.  Leopard spots can be a mixture of blacks/brown so I didn't mess with that.  What I did is hand colored the white.  Not a pure white but just a touch of yellow mixed in.  Took the red out of the teeth and eyes.  Then I doodled with her coloration.  I'm always experimenting there.  People are a mix of yellow, green, blue and red.   Those of you that really do color well, have no idea what a challenge it is for me.  That's why I do a lot of black and white, besides I love the old pictures.  I then duplicated the picture. Set the opacity around 50%. Finally,  I used a blue photo filter with that was set around 15%.  Once I liked what I saw I merged it all.  Working with color has always been a challenge but Bambi did such a wonderful job with her restoration, that I couldn't resist trying my hand at coloration.
