Thank you, it was pleasure to work on such a nice image. Our dogs that we had when I was growing up never did any police work either. But I never heard these dogs referred to as anything but German Police dogs until I was grown. For some reason you never hear them called that anymore.

As for how I did mine, can't remember all the steps, but it involved a cutout filter script, layering, and painting in some detail and then applying painterly strokes with Gertrudis Pro.

Steve, How did you do that? I love the way the strokes work with the image and the contrast of the dark strokes is really interesting.
I occasionally still get asked if my dogs are police dogs, we do a lot with them but no police work!
tat? OH TATTOO! she's chipped too!

Here's a version I did yesterday, I kind'a forgot how I did it now for the most part.
I know it's a sketchy type, and I just outlined it (kind'a, really quick) and dropped in a new background.
I did copy and paste the black linework over the color image, then played around with several layers to get it where it is.
I also used a 'hair brush' that I have to help outline this, but I really just didn't take the needed time to make it look perfect.

Lower then normal quality setting too, but I wanted to be able to post this within DPR limits.

Well, it sort of does follow a formula (I'm no smudger).

Bath Towel.

Modified my Thread2 preset using the Cresent Moon family of brushes in Impressionist. Thought the result looked cool enough to post (low quality didn't seem to hurt it much).
