Sharing a Milkshake, 1950’s


Colorization of a young couple sharing a milkshake , 1950sThese young lovebirds managed to find some time between watching “Howdy Doody” and the sock hop to stop and share a milkshake at a local diner. I really like this photo and worked diligently on the subtle details, like the reflections of the hands  and clothing in the table.

You may or may not have noticed, but the site is running much faster now that all the code has been polished and the content delivery system is all set up. The forums went up this morning and are still being developed, a link to that area is right at the top of the front page. The forums will be for the discussion of techniques,tips, tutorials and submission of other peoples work. Most likely when there are enough contributors, we will be doing monthly spotlights on the front page for different artists.

My full size colorization is below as well as the original black and white. Feel free to share this colorization on your social network of choice or leave any comments or question s you have in the comment section below.
