I'm still experimenting with the Wow Watercolor method. It seems to work better on "scenery" than "people."

This is a very cute picture nonetheless.

LegacyArt -- lovely choice of image, and nice touch on both versions.
Neve -- you're right -- those eyes say it all, and your emphasis really enhances them.
Danny -- your watercolor technique is good, but with this baby, it seems to emphasize the "startled look" in his eyes and mouth.

I started with a sharpened/diffused layer with layer masking to reduce a good deal of the effect, leaving it on the blanket, and around the edges of his face. Then I ran Graphic Pen (chose black and his pinkish skin color), added a Layer Mask, and ran a gradient on the mask to show a transition from the drawing effect to the previous image. Used a layer mask to reduce the pencil effect on his face.
