Need help with this pencil sketch look

I have been trying to figure out this particular pencil sketch look that I found on a website for days. However, I am unable to get the exact effects.
(I tried all the pencil sketch effect I found from here)
So, I need some tips and help.
The image I found can be found here or in a thread below.
I attached original image in a zip file.
any tips would be helpful.
Thank you.

Used eScrapper's technique and Impressionist.

Since you did not give an example of exactly what you wanted, I took some liberties. Below are links to the pertinant info/filters needed.

Impressionist: http://www.trimoon.com/html/downloads.html

I don't know why the link doesn't work....
I attached the image to this thread.
I am trying to figure out the effects that can turn original image above to the one attached here.

There's a plugin called "LucisArt" that has a setting called "Exposure" that comes pretty close... (plus a layer of grain set to Overlay).

The problem is this filter is real inconsistent for this purpose. On some images is looks pretty good, others not so good...

I found a very good PhotoShop action called Sheri's Sketch CS. I think I got it on the Adobe User Resources. It plays a lot more steps than this, I stopped the action at the first pause, but the result is pretty good.

I did extract the girl from the background first.

Barking up the wrong tree ?

Maybe i am barking up the wrong tree here but after looking around at all the different sketch methods i have ( as i am sure everone else has too) a thought suddenly occurd to me It has a look of a smudge painting but obviously in black and white and possibly as Danny mentioned a film grain, I have tried to find something to demonstrate this but not feeling up to par today ( cold virus going around again ) I was on the verge of giving up then i remembered this thread where i done a smudge painting and a black and white one !

http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/sho...?t=8291&page=4

It would need some tweaking ( if any body wants to go ahead please do)
so what do you think ? am i barking up the wrong tree ?
