Convert photo to cartoon

Hi experts...

I have a portrait photo which I want modify so that it looks like a cartoon drawing (thick pencil outlines, and just a few colors).
What is the best way of achieving this?

Hi, arildj78,

The last one might be the best.  The first 2 are in the genre (so to speak).  3rd one adds a bit of a twist.  But mostly, the last one seems what you are looking for in a tutorial.
