View Full Version : NPR sketch look

01-25-2012, 02:41 PM
I remember some talk about a nice technique on a sketch/pencil look that was published in HDRI magazine. Now I don't have the magazine (and chances to get them are slim these days I guess) nor can find by search how the actual technique works.

Does anyone know and care to share? Could really use some nice pencil sketch style today..

Looks really good Hieron :thumbsup:

Mind sharing your technique?

It's a combination of a few shaders and approaches as posted in those threads, combined with the distort + mb approach and a soft dome light. Renders fast..


I really like it.. but since it is so lifelike to a pencilsketch, you need to animate it enough to show off that it is actually 3D. I guess only a 3D artist will admire the stroke like appearance coming from a 3D model.. others will just think it a nice image :)

Thanks for all who shared techniques.
