Valentino in Blood And Sand.
This time I used a palette of mostly browns, brownish reds and creams (with a small nod to the old purple, orange and green!).

It never occurred to me to group colors like that. I just flew by the seat of my pants and tried to avoid clashing colors. The wheel will add much more consistency to color transfers.
Joe, your Bara looks like a different photo. The highlights in the face really transform the image. I have not seen anyone do this before!
P.S. Des, your Freddy March looks 3-D. I enjoy seeing March in his younger days when he was channeling John Barrymore.
