wow.. what a lovely coloring. I've really loved #24.
If it's not a problem, could you give me some tips
how to achieve this effect?

Thank you! :D I used gradient maps and variations (both PS tools, though there may be similar tools in other graphics programs, I think?) to get the coloring on #24. I applied a gradient map (#4b3850 --> #d9b199; blending mode: Normal) to the image (which I already cleaned up and added some textures/adjustment layers to) to get the coloring on the right side. Then I duplicated the resulting image and played around with variations settings to get the coloring on the left.

It's really a lot of trial-and-error with GM and V settings; it took me a few color combos to get the result I wanted. I hope this explanation makes sense!
