Faded that to Color Burn.
Loaded Red Channel as selection and ran Impressionist: Ink: Spiderweb Crosshatch.
Faded to Luminosity.
Loaded Green Channel, ran same filter.
Faded to Luminosity.
Loaded Blue Channel... ran same filter.
Faded to Darken.
Loaded Red Channel, ran Impressionist: Colored Line Pen.
Faded to Darken and lowered Opacity.
Loaded Green Channel, ran same filter.
Faded to Darken and lowered Opacity.
Loaded Blue Channel, ran same filter.
Faded to Darken and lowered Opacity.
Ran PS: Noise: Median - 2. Twice.
Added Sandstone Texture via PS: Texture: Texturizer.

You know, you twist channels and apply effects in ways that are SO DIFFERENT than I've ever seen before, glikster. Your refreshing approach has to be opening more eyes than just mine.

Well done.

aw, shucks, now I'm blushing....

Thank you for the high praise! Meanwhile, your posts are constantly forming new plateaus for me to try and reach.
I played with making an action based on the channel selections, but I personally don't like using actions, and that stops me from making them. I always need that freedom to stop in the middle of a series of effects and say, "Hold on.... what if I tried...." and then I worry that others might want to do something different.
But then again, it would cut down on documentation time.

thanks glikster!

though i took a different way (and far from your innovative approach), your idea lead me straight there

i converted pic to L*a*b, selected luminosity channel, applied twice Imp->Pencil Sketch->Detailed Mono (decreased contrast to 60, colour jitter to 0, 5, 5), then converted back to RGB and applied Imp->Conte->Contrasty Rough (again, decreased contrast to 60, and brush size to 25%)... i think that the pencil sketch phase was a good "guide" for the conte's brush placement...

This one is based on the Redfield Sketch Master plugin (Ink Sketch setting - layer then desaturated). I added some film grain and painted white here and there on another layer.

Click HERE for more info on this plugin.

thanks ... but i'm afraid it's a "one type of image" technique... i already tried it on 3 or 4 other images, and the results didn't turn out that well...

oh, anyways, of course i don't mind if you try that out...
