    wet paint/plastic effect

    I followed the thread from the beginning, and Hawkeye's response did not seem sarcastic - in fact, it is sagely advise. While working on PS (or while programming), if a new idea appears in your mind on 'whether a particular tool/set of steps can be taken/used to achieve a desired output/effect'...

    'Can You Do This' Ambigram

    That is very well conceptualised and executed. Surely that would have taken a few days of hard work to get that result. The first one looks like Mercury - Terminator 2 style. With the second one, the shadows are too dark to the extent that they do not looks like shadows but black paint.

    Problem with the drawn lines

    Composite Star Trails

    Feedback on composite

    1) There is some work yet to be done with regards to cutting out the model from the background. But, if your focus is more on composition rather than the cut out, ignore this point. 2) I see a Greenish tinge in the face of the model. That is in contrast with the background, which is more...

    Specific Can anyone remove this person?

    Possibly if you provide a pic of 'someone else', it may be easier to just replace the man in the pic rather than remove the man and reconstructing the background, which is a tedious process.

    Specific Portrait art hair color change request + minor lifing

    Specific Cartoonize dogs

    Here is one more option. Not exactly cartoon effect as requested, but an artistic rendering. I liked the second one below with Flame Edges.
