Experimented a bit last night with this Photoshop tutorial — how to turn photographs into comic book art panels (click for larger versions). Fairly involved – nine pages and nine layers, but took less than 15 minutes. Could probably trim that to five minutes with a bit of practice. Actually, some of the built-in posterization options in later versions of Photoshop get you fairly close to this effect, but without the halftone screen and cross-cut hatching that “sell” it as comic art. Pictured (before and after): My father-in-law Ben picking grapefruit in Palm Springs last winter.

pretty cool I think.
That’s kinda cool. Not exactly the same, but keeping with the same concept is this: http://plasq.com/comiclife/
I think the “comic book” effect is even more pronounced when the image is grayscaled. :)
Slick! Probably the best tutorial of its kind that I’ve come across. Thanks for the link.
