Ok here is my try at this mini-challenge. I started off by doing a colored pencil sketch on the image once I had that I made a selection of the English gentleman and promoted him to a layer and did some toning on the bottom layer. I applied a new layer over the English gentleman and reduced the opacity off this layer next I merged the white layer down and applied a soft focus effect and merged visible. Once I had this looking like I wanted I duplicated this and applied a pencil effect to the whole image. I then went back and set my eraser tool to a very low opacity and did a little touch up work allowing the bottom image to show through a little better.

Excellent image!

Danny, I really like that effect. Have you ever, played, and played. and played around with an imagen and kinda got carried away. Guilty. I buzzed this one and then desaturated and changed the color in the background for an old fashioned look... well then I though, "maybe it's was night".... and then I thought, "well if it was night there may be fog" and then I thought well, maybe there was also some wind being they were outside, so I gave the fog a motion blur... came up with three images.

Thanks in advance for your patience, lol

This is the only extant portrait of Brigadier Sir Wainscot Humphrey Rudley-Hickers, whose less-than-distinguished military career came to an end when his forces were defeated (and the General himself captured) at the battle of Scarsdale in 1781 during the American Revolution.

The Rudley-Hickers family endures the shame to this day.

Here is my try. http://www.jereme.com/clients/challenges/40.jpg

I haven't done one the painting style images for anything before. I used the spatter and dry brush filters and overlaid the two to accomplish the effect I wanted.

The painting wasn't tall enough so I duplicated some of the sky to fill the remaining space. I'm sure the original artist is rolling in his grave.

I think the soldiers are from different time periods, but the themes seem to go together pretty well.

nice effect, jereme. might be interesting to see if the two combined images are from the same era.
