Phil Morris from Saskatoon, Toronto, NYC, Canada

This technique is one I wish I knew how to do, I wonder how it would work from a
photo for instance of a stone house with a lot of plants. It sure works w/highrises.

@Phil Morris: I think it would work well. The program is PhotoScape, and it is a free download.

A pencil sketch certainly puts a different look to this photo... I think it works well with this view also, especially with the tall buildings. Very interesting, I like it!!
