I used the same steps as for "sepia sketch" adding...
Dupe Sepia Sketch Layer
L2 - Dodge/Neg/GB4 - Dupe Layer
L3 - Difference - Dupe Layer
L4 - Screen 42% to suit image - Dupe Layer
L5 - Burn 60% to suit image - Dupe Layer
L6 - Hue - 78% (this alters colours)
Added Criss-Cross Texture which filled in the
Got this surprising result while fooling around ... first i created a wmf file (from corel draw/ trace), converted to outline, copied into ps, and played around with blends.

Now that really out there (in a good way)! I like it when folks take chances to come up with something bold. Well done.

Here's a couple using the sketch effects I worked up for my "101 Graduation". See the Campfire_Treat thread for how to. One difference -- I added some Reticulation filter to the BW version before Waterpaper et. al.

Watercolour from Digital Photo Effects Mag tutorial.
The basic principles are
image size 300ppi
Create a new coloured canvas layer.
Duplicate original background and move to top.
Increase Saturation (+38 in the tut on a fairly light image), mode = linear light, opacity 25.
Hide all layer mask and paint with white using Wet Media Brush - watercolour textured surface.
Duplicate this layer again, remove mask, blend mode = darken apply motion blur at 90 deg and distance 400+
Duplicate background and move to top
Median Filter value 5
hue = -4, saturation +17
blend mode = hard light
Hide all layer mask and paint white using same brush reduce brush size for facial features.
Another duplicate of background blurred and set to soft light.
These are the instructions as per the mag - they also added noise at 17 to the layers - I didn't like it with the noise added.
I also used dry brush filter instead of median as I felt it gave a better look.
It's quite surprising the difference the motion blur layer makes. I did find the file size getting a bit big and got 'not enough ram' when I tried to add a texture. (I have 2Gb).
Quite like the result though....
OK. Duped the BG.
Ran Danny's Chalk Sketch: Mono Color Jit.
Faded to 45%
Ran Danny's Charcoal: Color Scr on K.
Faded to 45%
Ran Danny's Paint: Linear Brush D.
Ran Danny's Natural Wild Cave.
Faded to 45%.
Duped BG again.
Find edges, Desaturate, Levels adj., Diffuse: Anis.
Set mode to Overlay and opacity to 15%.
Stamped visible, ran Custom twice and faded 2nd to 45%.
Thanks Danny. Lovely renditions, all.
Tried colorizing a desaturated (and lightened) image with pattern stamp tool and a wee bit of hand paint.
