As always, we remind you -- be careful what you click. For the most part, this is all good clean stuff for'ya this month. But there are always malware, phishing stalker and predator links abundant in many of the replicated sites these days. Whatch those little popups in the text. Just stay on the tutorial / content paths and you'll be okay.
So, here are yet more links of note...
Cool, Etched, Comic Book Effect in Photoshop
Mix all sort of filters and blend them together to obtain that well known sketch effect. You can of course use a simple Graphic Pen Filter or a Halftone Pattern Filter, but if you want to obtain a more complex and realistic comic effect you have to use more than one Photoshop Filter
Careful, this one also has quite a bit of spam, and some idiot programmed an annoying "floating" media button that blocks the content. DUH! clicks more important than content! See the print version of the tutorial.
