The example image is too small to speculate on the arty effect.

It looks like the final step was a huge amount of "oversharpening," achieved by applying Unsharp Mask with an Amount setting of 300-400 and about 30-50 in the Radius. That filter and those ballpark settings will yield that glowing effect and rich colors.

I wouldn't be surprised if this were an actual drawing. Though the efffect can definitely be mimicked in Photoshop.

Certainly looks like colored pencil. It's too good in my opinion to be a product of just filters. But again, the image is too small to really tell.

Thanks,

I don´t know if this is any larger. This is the location of the site: http://artbycheri.com/AllAboutMe.htm
It looks like it is color pencils, but was wondering if this sytle could be replicated in PS and how one would start??? My sister wants her little girl done in this style, but couldn´t quite get it.

yes, Skip, that is why I asked if it could be replicated in PS.

Hi Nancy.

Take a look at the buck picture here

http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/photo-based-art/11852-vg-smudgecheata-action-available.html

It looks like a similar technique to me.

The Closest would be SMUDGING with a really fine brush and a lot of time.
Do a search for smudging and you might get close?

Nancy, this is not it, but I think with enough time spent, it could get pretty darned close. I was focusing on the horse closest to the camera. Original photo is the property of Kiska who holds all copyrights and gave me permission to use it here.
I began by running Mike Finn's Pop action on one layer, then reduced the opacity to about 33%.
Lots more layers, playing with opacities and contrast/brightness, ran angled strokes, Xero Porcelain, then took it to Painter IX and softened some areas using Just Add Water brush. Then back to PS, where I used dodge and burn.
