Re: Help here . . .

Wow. Nice find. Interesting method.

Here's how I would approach it. These steps will get you pretty close...
* Duplicate original layer and apply Gaussian blur 2-3 pixels or so
* Tweak opacity to soften the detail a bit
* Add a layer mask
* Set foreground color to black
* Choose a soft edged brush
* With airbrush setting on, flow ~40%, opacity ~40%, paint on layer mask to reveal detail around eyes, nose, lips as needed
* Above the duplicate of the original layer add a Channel Mixer adjustment layer
* Turn on "monochrome option"
* Fiddle with the controls until you like the resulting BW
* Above the Channel Mixer adjustment layer add a Curves adjustment layer. Click OK for now. No changes needed at the moment.
* Above the Curves adjustment layer add a new layer and fill it with white
* Add a layer mask to this layer
* Select one of the scatter-type brushes, one that applies a "rake-like" stroke effect. (I can't tell which brush was used; maybe someone else can provide specific brush suggestions. Experiment in the mean time.)
* With foreground color set to black and the layer mask active "paint" in the hatch marks
* When finished, fine tune by adjusting the controls on either adjustment layer

Hope this gets you started.

[note: a few steps added to accomodate the softening done by the author using a PS action]

Having used Tim's method in the past I'd say the results are similar, but not the same. Tim's approach is very different (aren't optional methods great?), but can yield pleasing results, too.

Thanks for jumping in with a useful 1st post!
