What a wee charmer! Lovely submissions and thoroughly enjoyed the views and wonderful tips, thank you! I opted to try Paint Alchemy - a sketch setting of my own.

PSP8.01

Grayscale image then increase Col. Depth to 24 Mill.
Levels to lighten image considerably.
Dupe this layer.
2nd Layer - Made a selection of the bg and inverted.
Paint Alchemy Sketch Setting.
Layer Blend Mode - Multiply
Merged both layers.
Inverted selection and filled bg with white.
I copied and pasted the selection as a new layer and applied
a slight shadow. (optional)
Merged both layers.
Added pencil tube in a new layer, deformed and positioned.
Text in new layer
Merged all.

Many gold stars for a supurb interpretation, Neve. The text + pencil are icing on the cake.

I never got the hang of Paint Alchemy. You've given me hope and I just now dusted it off and have begun poking around.

Of the Sketch Style presets, which one did you use?

Hi Danny...many thanks! It's taken me a while to get the hang of Paint Alchemy, albeit very little. This was definitely a happy accident today, I kid you not....! The setting was Little Dutch Boy and I altered the settings...mainly the colours and "angle" especially. I fiddled with the settings until I got a right hand slant.

I lightened this image heaps prior to applying the filter.....as if preparing for a High Key appearance (i.e. white skin) but still with enough shading for the filter to grab a hold of.

Hope that makes sense.... . I landed lucky with the right image today. When I completed it I knew I wanted to 'keep' it. I liked it myself and that's a change...LOL

Cheers

Thanks for the play Danny. My interpretation of Justin was done in PaintEngine.

Cool find John. Wasn't around when this one was first in the offering. Did a DAP Aquerell and a few other things of this interpretation.
