To explain this image. On the base there is the Black & White image. On top of that image are 11 layers of colors that make up the final.

Thanks Mugmar. Since I learned this Ive been going non stop one pic after another. Lots of Laurel & Hardy, W.C. Fields, The Marx Brothers, old pics from the Wild West. There is so much great stuff to draw from. Here is Mohammad Ali and Sonny Liston. It was shot in Black and White, but other photographers shot in color and I used their shots for reference.

Hey Bynx,

As you said that there are 16 layers of color, it can be depicted that this many layers have been part of this image. Great.

I remember a chap at our computer club did that YEARS ago to a photo of his father in MONOchrome, we all wondered why!!!!!!!!

Still, it looks fine
