An Old Sketch Gets a Color Makeover

To tell the truth, I really don't know very much about color. I put this together in photoshop as an excercize, looking at Sergio Leone's work, in an attempt to start myself on the path to understanding the wacky world of translating the colors of reality to the skewed world of cartooning. It's no great shakes, but I am putting together some nice midtones and highlights, particularly on the coat. Maybe this Summer I'll find time to paint for real and get my color chops up to speed.
