Creating Lino cut like prints via photoshop

coloured illustration to black and white lino print to coloured/inked lino print.

I saw an interesting job up on a freelance site and it asked for lino cut prints - traditional or computer generated. I had not a clue how to do this, but figured it should be possible. So I went off to google and play and this is the result. Yup I am rather happy with it :) This might be because I do not know the difference LOL
The tutorial can be found here http://www.edb.utexas.edu/minliu/multimedia/PSTip-linocut.pdf

Hope you all have a happy weekend and please join our friends at Sunday Sketches.

Looks good to me but then I don't know the difference either. They do look scary. I know Christmas will be on us before we can blink... :(

I love your original illustration and the way you transformed it digitally into a linocut is brilliant. Thanks for the link to the tutorial. Blessings!
