Hand-drawn knight

Tone separationa

Retaining shadows

This recipe works particularly well with historical images because it lends the subject a hand-drawn quality

If you drag Blend If s black triangles but keep them close together, the transition will be abrupt Here, I dragged them until the sky was separated from the tree

For another variation, try adjusting the Blend If slider on both the Multiply and the Hard Mix layers Here, I used Blend If to exclude the Hard Mix layer's highlights and midtones so that shadows from the original photo showed in the final image
