To Illustrate a Point

I’ve come to realize that I have been subscribing to Photoshop User magazine since 2009.  I was going through my collection and realized that I still have some of them in the plastic sleeves, never looked at.  Why have something if you are not going to use it.  In the April/May 2009 issue I found a tutorial titled, “Illustration Effect on Photos”.  I decided to play with it.  Perhaps I should go through all the magazines and do at least one tutorial in each.  The only way you get good at something is to practice.  I spend too much time doing my “JOB” and not enough doing the things I really enjoy.

I enjoy having fun with old images.  The original is just a pair of German soldiers.  The restoration is a pair of Matthew Grey Gublers.  He’s one of the actors in Criminal Minds.
