Outline tutorial by Jay Arraich

Came across a GREAT tutorial by Jay Arraich on outlining and used it for my image. Can be used for ps7.
The website is http://www.arraich.com/elements/pse_ooutline1.htm
What i did here was color outline layer normal, background copy find edges and blend linear dodge. (too lazy to write out entire tut for u!)

Play around with the various blends. Its GOOD FUN!

I tried my best here to recall the steps. I have given these steps in a another thread. But It's the same what I have done

Rendered mostly with the Xenofex 2 Classic Mosaic filter...
* A layer with fairly large pieces
* A layer with smaller pieces on top, and blended with a layer mask with the layer below.
* Merged both onto a separate layer, which was duplicated, embossed and set to Overlay.

Re: Creative Portraits: Smiling Eyes

Same with me, but I tried a different filter in PaintEngine, and adjusted the colors a bit.

EDIT:fixed it
