Clipping Path Service

At first, select a background image under a layer. Create a clipping path now. After creating clipping path of every part of the face and body in different layers, posterize it by going Image> Adjustments> Posterize. Increase the posterize effect to get good effects. Create 2 copies of Background. Select ‘Background Copy 2’ and go to Filter> Artistic> Dry Brush. Select your desired effect and make some adjustments that are necessary for your image. Change the layer mode from ‘Normal’ to ‘Soft Light.’ Increase the opacity of the image. Select the color of ‘Gradient Editor’ to make it look like a cartoon effect. That sums up the whole process.

I hope that it will help you and from now on, hopefully you will follow this procedure more often in Photoshop and be an expert in this field in the future.
