        I'm not an expert either, but at least to me, some of the ends of the fur appear feather-like. Otherwise, I like what you have done.

            I offer the attached interpretation as "food for thought," not as criticism of your effort. To be very truthful your first two tries at Painter are way, way better than mine were -- by a loooooong shot. The intent here is to give you a visual "something to chew on" for future reference.

            Whether you like my style or not, ask yourself, "In what ways does this not look like a photo?" (or "In what ways does it look painted?") Hints: Color, detail, implied texture, it ain't "perfect" (photo-realistic), not every square inch (or cm) is covered in (digital) paint.

            Nice job of isolating the subject; that's a good step forward. I'd suggest breaking up the background a bit so it's not solid. Perhaps "rough things up a bit" (over doing it with Unsharp Mask works well in this regard). Add some colors that aren't part of the original photo.

            My preferred tool for adding arty variety (stroke and color-wise) is the Impressionist plugin [see note below my sig]. I used Charcoal > Default here, tweaking the brush size, hue and saturation settings. (If you are a PC person, Impressionist works under Painter as well as Photoshop.) Once Impressionist is applied, the colorful and varied strokes can be cloned and blended in Painter using brushes of choice.

            Again, don't take this as criticism. Consider it a "different way."

            I look forward to seeing you continue to grow. You have obviously got what it takes to get very, very good at this type of thing.

            -----------------

            I just added the grayscale version... kind of "out there" as a painted look. Again, food for thought.

                Danny- For the background, did you start with just some random colors brushed on, and then run impressionist? Could you share a little more info of what you did before you actually ran the filter?

                thanks!

                          Lyle. i think this image is not sketch, it is a engraving. I would make an ex-libris.
                          Cool.

                            Yeah; it does look like a result that you would get from a woodblock stamp impression.

                              What a wonderful dog. Here's my PST version

                              For the background, I used an image of multicolored paint splatterd on a wall. I resized it to match the dog image then saved as a pattern. Used the PST with the Impressionist option ON and a spattery brush to paint in the color.
