EDIT: THANK YOU SO MUCH for the overwhelming response. I have received tons and tons of messages from so many of you asking for a commission. I do not take commissions at the moment but when I have the free time I might pick up a photo or two to work on.
So instead of asking me if I can work on it, maybe send me the pictures. If something interests me, I will work on it next.
And if I do work on it, it'll be free of charge.
The result of a request posted by a user on r/estoration a couple of days ago. I took a few minor creative liberties here and there in spaces where I could not figure out the exact details of the original or in areas where I could not find a 100% replacement HQ part for it .. or in some cases where I just felt minor changes enhanced the result but did not deviate much from the original.
Hope you all like it. :)

The black and white original photo makes this look way older than 1972, it looks twice that age

Brilliant restoration work but what's most interesting to me is how changing the subtleties in her appearance has changed her expression completely. The pursed lips on the left photo is like she's about to burst out laughing, the right is a smirk.
