You did an especially good job on the eyes, Novi. I liked how you added emphasis with subtle blurring in other areas.

On my interpretation I used a Photoshop action to manipulate the background and isolated her lovely face with such great eyes onto a separate layer.

On #2 I used variations of the Impressionist plugin's Charcoal > Default preset for the background and Akvis Sketch plugin to restore some detail.
