          Completely done in Artrage2
          Since it's 1268x1702 px it was a pain to get it below 100kb.
          It seems a bit blurry due to compression so you can find a better quality version here (767kb).

          Enjoy

                    Believe it or not, I have been trying to do similar on another pic, and can't reproduce it yet.
                    I was doing a lot of messing about with this one and binned a lot of stuff.
                    But I did use noise reduction at its strongest to soften (more than once) I also oversharpened to get the edge detail, I know I added the cutout filter on a copied layer and faded (can't rember the mode) (feel ill now).
                    Did a lot of bluring close to the edges to take away the shapening halos (does that make sense?)
                    Definately did levels (to darken) and Hue and Sat a few times.

                    I know this is not a lot of help, but right now its the best I can do.

                      Peter how very annoying for you, i think that it has probably happened to us all ( at least once ) The worst of it all is if like me you will suddenly remember something just as you start to go to sleep
                      I had guessed the cutout filter was involved there, i have not used this filter much but just lately have seen some great work using it .
                      the other thing that caught my eye was how his robes look like satin great look.
                      Anyway yes it has been of some help, i will have a mooch around with the cutout filter
                      Thank you for your best now go and have a sit down and a nice drink what ever your tipple might be ! ! ! !

                        Glad this project has been resurected!

                        Tried to achieve a minimal water color effect.

                        Adjusted colors. Duped, desaturated, copied the desat layer, inverted set for color dodge and ran motion blur. Merged the two b/w layers and set to luminacity blend mode. Tweaked curves and added frames.

                            Thank you, Margaret. It started with a tip I got on a Photoshop podcast for a new sketch technique, but I added the color with the LUM blend mode. I really like the technique because it doesn't add tons of "jitter" in the halftones, but gives a pretty clean drawing and allows for a lot of adjustment of the amount of "sketch" you want.
