Really colorful, Tin. Did you have your image on a transparent background?

Ella and Pat - thank you for your encouraging comments, I appreciate your kind words.

Pat - you ask how I did the gold highlights; well serendipity rules again. I do a lot of 'what if' experimenting lately and this result was one of those occasions. So here is the recipe -

Bottom layer a gold Buddha with normal blend mode.
Layer above it is a desaturated layer of the Buddha, actually taken from Tin's 'picture to line art' script, set in overlay mode.
Layer above that is GMIC>Contours>gradient norm of the gold Buddha in hard light mode.

And that is it.
