First of all I'm a n00b on this forum. I hope I don't break any rules.
So I'm in a bit of trouble. One of my clients is asking me to achieve a similar effect to the one below on several images, sent by him.
As far as I can figure out, these have been drawn from scratch. They're not retouched photos.
I've tried using a sketch/crosshatch effect, but the client isn't happy. I've tried the halftone filter, but with poor results. I think it would take me ages to fin the right combination to achieve something similar.
I don't need the exact same effect, but something similar would be great.
So have you guys ever run across something close to this?
