A reworking of a great image
I'm a user of Photoshop myself and a fan of this photo as well. YA DONE GOOD!
Many thanks Michael. It's a great medium and I've only begun to explore it's potential.
Were there any of you that watched Disney's "Spin and Marty" in the 50s? There was one in the serial where either Spin or Marty, who was the tenderfoot at the ranch, had his new jeans dragged around and beat up to he'd fit in when he put them on. I vaguely remember more than that one bit in all of those shows.
Nice picture Gary. I'm a bit worried about the colour of the slicker though.
I deliberated whether it was a blanket, or slicker for some time. I tried both when colourizing. As a slicker it didn't look right, it is too matt, it should have had similar qualities as his chaps, showing some shiny hi-lites and the texture looked better as a blanket. It does lay like a slicker though and speaking as a former Cowboy; a slicker is a far more useful item to have behind you than a blanket.
I was told that when arriving finally at a cowtown at the end of a long drive, many of the hands spent a good part of their pay on new duds. So those guys posin' in the photo studios in new outfits may not be all "non-cowboys." There's nothin' wrong with new clothes in town, or on the train back to Texas. They'll be broken in and worn out on the trail before long, anyway.
