#1 - AKVIS sketch (for edges, detail) on top of Impressionist > Charcoal > Default

#2 - From a nifty Photoshop action Mike Warren crafted. Note different versions for CSx and PS7:

Pavel, Palms: I like your "dark, shadowy" interpretations. Very Friday the 13th looking - even though it is Friday the 22nd!

Hat's off to Norman.

Been itching to do a Rockwell; not even close to the master, but I hope you all like it anyway.

So much character in this photo! Thanks, Danny

Extract, add Curves (each channel "sliced with the pencil" at 3/4,1/2, and 1/4 tones. Noise added to the mask.

Added shadow and background.
