Sometimes you just have to follow the creative muse when it strikes, even when it leads you into directions you'd normally not visit.
The canvas is 680 x 1020.
The paint is digital.
I hope these steps are clear and you can find something helpful in them. The process could readily be followed by starting with a photograph or a painted image; 3D is not needed. The PictureMan Art Gallery plugin is made by Stoik (more info here); the same effect could be achieved with other filters such as those that promise "pencil effects" or "edge enhance" - depending on what you've got. Play with them and see what they do.

Amazing again, Varian! As if it were possible for the est of us, LOL! But you make it look like a piece of cake,,,;.) Just few steps, and there we have a master piece... You are soooo skilled with these different ways to make pictures. I'm so amazed again... Your ability to SEE the lights and colors, and shapes - and use your puter to help you making them is something that is unreachable for mst of us:-) -- Thanks for these steps! I really try to learn with them, Varian!
