I think you are now finding your strength. A fine piece of art.
Well done!

That's a very good point. I think it'll help even more on my Felix project. I think doing an extra layer of outline edges even after the whole thing is completed and blending it back down selectively in certain areas may be something worth trying??
Is that a question or are you thinking out loud? :D

I have a few 'sketch' actions and I've found that doubling (or tripling) on the outline layer strengthens/emboldens the outline. See if you can isolate that layer and try copying the layer and see what happens. No harm in experimenting. Which action did you use? Maybe I can dissect it if I can get my hands on it.

No action,a bunch of steps from a book. Includes Find Edges and Glowing Edges and other stuff with color and filter effects. Of course I wandered away from the instructions and experimented too. If I get it better sorted I could create an action from it.

Luscious colors, leading lines, no rule of thirds, a story -- what's not to like and admire?

Jackson! I used to go there for a meeting about twice a year when I wore a tie and a suit. Never got out in the countryside. Pity.

Thanks Matt. You are welcome to come back anytime! No suit required...

Well, here's a new thing I'm trying to learn, a sort of illustration technique. It is a mix of photo, photoshop edges, various filters, extreme color, textures, and whatnot. All ideas about how better to do this kind of thing are welcome!!
I might tone down the blue sign above home, the blue luggage behind him, and the red of his shoes, otherwise spot on! S-
