    Re: Colorized Atlanta Entrenchments

    Thats a trick question lol I don't they are ever truly done.. The Atlanta one took about 18 man hours, I would guess.. Its kind of hit and miss, just when you think you are done, there are details that you see that you missed and have to go back in and fix..I'm always seeing things I want to tweak, but you just get to a point where you think its as good as you can make it..
    Portraits, to me, are a magnatude easier and only take a couple of hours to do,as you don't have all the details in the background..
    thanks
