I know pet portraits aren't everyone's thing, but I do love the effect used here. It's called "Sadie" by Thomas Paul. It has a subtle lithograph quality to it. He shot using a Nikon d2h using 3 strobes and Photoshop. I'm guessing it's a black & white conversion, perhaps with some high pass & or HDR type PP applied?

Can any of the experts here enlighten me as to how to achieve this effect? I really love the end result:

It appears to be super sharpened.

this may be a LR pre-set, or from a b-w conversion program.
