Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a charcoal portrait, part of Photoshop for Designers: Filters.

On top of this, we have the original …image with the charcoal filter applied to it on top of this. …And clipped to it, we have a layer that I've called smudged and that's exactly …what it is.
