Nurse From Reddit Battles Colorized

MetaColor does a weekly “Colorization Battle” which is not really a battle at all but a chance to learn and compare your work to others. this weeks was a really cool picture of an asian nurse. I tried to search for a nurses uniform but as an FYI you wont get a uniform if you search for “Asian Nurse” in google…or at least turn your parental filters off. I really liked this image and the skin was very easy to work with. I had to kind of make-up some of the grass and sky which happens often in colorization.

  The backgrounds can be blurry and I had to wing it and make the best I could of the tree and the grass in the background without it being over drawn. Please feel free to leave any comments, criticisms or your own personal colorization below.
All photo colorization found within Metacolor is completed by hand using a Wacom Graphic Tablet and Adobe Photoshop CC software. All website design, writing and photo colorization/restoration found within is the sole work of Wayne Degan.

    I know who the subject of the photo is! This portrait is by Ansel Adams in 1943. The lady in the photo is Aiko Hamaguchi, a Japanese-American that served at the Manzanar Relocation Center in California during World War II.
