Here's one version - a varient of the Mudge tutorial I started trying yesterday -- I made more changes (posterized the image before starting to work, ran cutout on the smart blurred sketch), tried a few different brushes -- still trying to see what I will like best.

Great result so far CJ - I've been fiddling with this same approach too on personal images, lots of room for experimenting with it.

Thanks for the photo....

Thanks for finding such a cool photo to work with.

PSP 9 again. A neat "Brush Strokes" filter is built-in.
More details once I actually know what I'm doing.
Flipped and cropped for aesthetics.

sidis -- that's a nice texture! Glad you like the image -- it's nice to think of sunshine, the water, and seeing a cute, though very young man, is nice also.

I know that the PSP'ers will look forward to your steps -- we used to have a problem finding enough PSP tips/tutorials etc., but I think it's evened out more.

Tried a rougher - more "seaman-like" look for the young man.

I don't know what to call this one. It's essentially just a sketch layer offset to the right over a Painter8 FeltCloner layer. (Here the FeltCloner was sized to simply produce large blobs of color -- essentially what I was shooting for.)

Mark, the effect, (whatever it might rightfully be named), is a nice one for this young man! There's a darker swirl of color where the shadows on his face would be.

I'm so glad that you gave this image a try with your personal style -- great job! His hair really looks like hair (hair is one of those things I've always had trouble with ), and you have really kept his boyish looks and charm intact.
