Home › Forums › Other › Mimic Wall Street Journal Headshots
The headshots in the Wall Street Journal are created by hand. Is there a program / plugin etc. that will mimic this effect? I primarily use GIMP, so that would be optimal.
This is a good example of what I’m referring to:
There was a infochart floating around the web for a while on how to achieve an ink drawn effect from a photo, although I think it was more Sin City than Wall Street Journal. I’ll have a look, although it was a long time ago….
Here you go – it is the Sin City one, but the concepts may be largely the same. It’s for photoshop, but I’m sure as a GIMP user, you’ve converted cmds before… Hope it helps :)

Stop Press! Here’s what you need – I knew the style of illustration was ink block, so I just googled that. First result was a match :)
Again, a PS tut…
Super. I’ll give this a shot. Thanks for the referral
