I did extract the girl from the background first.
I don't know about Adobe User Resources, but I can confirm Sheri's Sketch action can be downloaded from www.AtnCentral.com.

Still not sure wether barking up the wrong tree or not,
1.Quickly and roughly smudged hair and face,
2. tried desaturating
3. tried using the channel mixer and a film grain
Not that close to the original but not that far away either i think (its getting the hair lighter )

will probably have a nother tweak around at some point

That looks like a hand-drawn pencil sketch. I have yet to find a ps technique that looks exactly like it. If you do run across anything, I would be interested. Alan has a nice hi-key pencil sketch technique that you can search for I think it is in the photo art forum.

I cropped and and superimposed the after and before images. IMO there's no way it could be anything but a manipulated photo. The hair detail matches up strand-for-strand just about everywhere, as does the dress pattern. In any event, it's an impressive result.

If you apply a Histogram (or Levels) to the final image, the tone distribution is interesting.

Now that I've fiddled with this some more, I think (now) there's a little over sharpening and smudging going on, too.

That's very good Danny. And you are correct everything does match up.... Would love to find out who did it and their technique. How did you get your great results?

This has been fun, will have to work on it some more.

Now that I see what you want, ...

...I can not give it to you. Best I could come up with is a combination of Flaming Pear's Pixel Trash, GIMP's Greystoration filter and some smudging.

I was afraid someone might ask. It was pretty much a "happy accident" -- the result of trying this and that without anything resembling a plan and not keeping track of my steps like I normally do.

There were a number of layers, none of which I labeled (my bad), so I'll need to go back and try to decipher the layer progression. It may take a day or so but I'll sure give it a go...

Thanks Nancy and Legacy for your very kind words.

~Danny~

Thank you for you tip about LucisArt exposure filter, Danny.
I think it is definitely one of effects used for creating the image.
However, I still can't get soft pencil look and details of hair.
Does anybody know a texture filter better than grain and noise filter?
Here is what I got using exposure filter.
