Nice try Danny, but we all know you only posted this to keep a certain Palms quiet.

Re: Creative Portraits: Handsome Dude in a White C

I was going to put this one, away but decided to try and do a better sketch.
So I used Palms's sketch action (based on Swampy's workflow I believe)(thanks girls).
I then duped that layer and changed the mode to multiply and got a bit more details, I then duped this layer another 10 times, then merged all these sketch layers and changed the mode to overlay and ran bas-relief on it.
Then boosted the saturation off the colours of the base layer a bit and this was the outcome, a little rough but I liked it.
I never got to the sketch bit after all.
