02] New Adjustment Layer > SELECTIVE COLOR.
Reds: 0, +100, -100, +18
Whites: 0, 0, 0, -31
Neutrals: -40, +6, +100, -33
Blacks: 0, 0, 0, +100
MAKE SURE YOUR SELECTIVE COLOR IS SET TO "RELATIVE."
03] Duplicate background layer.
04] Filter Gallery > Sumi-e
Stroke Width: 13
Stroke pressure: 0
05] On the layers palette, find your duplicated layer and pull the OPACITY back to about 36%.
06] Select your eraser tool. Pull the FLOW back to about 10-15%, and set the size of the eraser at about 15-20pt.
07] Gently and carefully, drag the eraser along the details of the image (eyes, ears, nose, hair, etc.) until you get the desired effect, or the facial features no longer look blurred.
**NOTE: Some images will require you to tweak the YELLOWS on the selective coloring bit, or lessen the amount of selective coloring done on the NEUTRALS.
Also, the filter gallery is on NEWER Photoshop programs, so if you're using PS7 or earlier, you'll have to find the Sumi-e effect under the Filter drop-down menu.
Have fun, & I hope this helps!!
