The Bible - Norman Rockwell Style

Still trying to find a workflow that creates the Rockwell look. It helps if your original image has exaggerated facial expression or posture. This was a black and white photo I tried to give the Rockwell look. I’m always a little confused as they say I should desaturate the image …but many of the Rockwell images I have seen are very saturated in color. So I did the best I could with this …your thoughts are appreciated.

Great job on colorizing Bob. I know what you mean about saturated vs. de-saturated. I’m thinking saturation is okay on the subjects but de-saturated background that fades around the edges.

I really like the effect and I agree with your comments about Rockwell’s style, the only thing I see that kind of stands out is the face color seems to be blown out, but it doesn’t really affect the result just draws your eyes to them.

Thank you Don, love your insight. Yes, the faces seem a little washed out. I did try to put some red on their cheeks as Rockwell seems to do that alot. Again, makes me wonder about the no saturated vs. saturated look of Rockwell.
