I would guess several things there...

They have obviously levelled the overall image to get the light and dark contrast sorted, then duped the layer, gaussian blurred it, and then set as Darken on the blending mode. This gives the slight cartoon feel in shading. Would mess around with the opacity of the darkened layer as 100% may be too strong.

As for the sketchiness, I would suggest using the sharpen filter on a copy of the layer in question, as the example you showed was for certain sharpened, look at the jeans on the right side of the image.
