Re: Blond Hunk !!
Here we go then.
1 dupe image twice
2 on top layer make a line drawing, (I've been using the sketch action Palms posted), set blend to multiply
3 click on layer below and add a blank layer and fill with white, it should look like the sketch again,
4 add a mask to this layer.
5 click on top layer and add an adjustment layer channel mixer set to monochrome. (adjust to taste later)
6 choose a brush - I made my own, a series of diagonal lines, I adjusted the dynamics for scatter, separation, size etc.
7 Paint on the mask you created on the blank layer with black or dark grey. (I've been starting with the grey then change to black later.)
8 when I'm satisfied I click on the top layer and merge all to a new layer and set blend to overlay, then either use USM or Bas relief to bring out moer of the stroke details.
9 for this one I added a gradient map adjustment layer to finish it off.
10 oh yes adjust the channel mixer AL to taste.
I think that was all besides a few minor tweaks here and there
If you check THIS it's an example of the brush etc.
Hope it helps.

Tooooooo carried away with the last post to mention the other works here.
Very nice everyone.
And Palms you should never gamble you know that.
