From a newbie for newbies, a funny "cartoon style" effect

1st step

First of all I want to apologize for my poor English, I'm italian, like my Photoshop is, so I took many screenshots to help everyone figure out the steps

Let's go

Ok, the fact is I LOVE CARTOONS, so I tried to render one of the funniest effects used: the character passing through walls (or doors), leaving his contour

The first thing to do is to retrieve a good image. Google can help, as usual, so try to find the character you like.
Here I found Duffy Duck (copyright by Warner Bros)

Fire it in PS and go...
Let change the picture to Grayscale (we don't need colors)

Very clever and nice effect. I once did something similar using a terrain and an alpha plane.
