Heres what I would do.

1. Cut out person or image.
2. Place image over half black/white background.
3. Adjust image threshold accordingly.

Threshold can be found under: image>adjustments>threshold

Photoshop has a filter called "Stamp" under the "Sketch" filter menu. It can get that kind of effect, but you'll need to do some minor adjustments to the original image first (increase contrast and possibly brightness) or have a really good initial image to work from.

When i do what you do. about the threshhold etc etc. i cet get up to there but the picture is very dotted and not smooth. how can i smooth it out?
Also my friend was telling me about using the extract feature, bit i didnt understand what the hell he was chattin about. does anybody know how i could use that?

You would be better off playing with the threshold, as suggested earlier, to accomplish your goal. Extract is just one of Photoshop's selection tools, to the best of my knowledge. You use the highlighter to outline the part of the image you want to keep, the paint bucket to fill in that area, and click on OK. The result is your selection. The paint/fill method is probably more useful than the quickmask or lasso method on occasion, but it will do nothing, as far as I know, to help you achieve that duotone effect.
