The terminator

- Open up the image of a face you want to turn into the terminator. Im using the terminator himself as my victim for this experiment :).

- Duplicate the orginal layer so now you have 2 layers for this image. go to the BOTTOM layer, and apply Filter->Sketch->Chrome. Set Detail: 10 and Smoothness: 0

Now go back to the top layer (from now, we will only be working on the top layer.) , then choose the "Eraser Tool", and set the brush size to image 1 or similar. we want one with rough edges.

Now use this eraser to erase his eye on the TOP layer, this will reveal his bottom layer.
