Here is a quick and dirty tutorial I made for getting the sketchy look. It should be enough to get those wanting a tutorial started. It's a PDF file...

Hope it works out ok. Please send me a PM if you have any issues or notice anything or think I should add something etc. I tried to keep it as to the point as I could.

Thanks,
Gideon

Compliments! I can imagine your satisfaction thinking and planning the workflow and then finding it works! Many many compliments!

Lw is a zen way to "wow, it works!"

Pure genious Wacom!

The "rope plugin" of artistic effects for LW!

This is the kind of thing people should be paying for. Ground breaking scientific research I dare say!

Looking forward to the next one and thank you for sharing your hard work!

veryverycool, this... starts my imagination, especially after seeing the last pic (fuzzy, painterly effects). a way to do soft cloud-like stuff? Fur? volumetrics without hypervoxels? stylized water, bushes, trees, shrubbery (anybody looking for a shrubbery? I might be an excellent shrubberer)

eagerly awaiting next episode, not waiting to start experimenting by myself, though.

Thanks for sharing! Some of us new lightwave users can use tutorials like this that cut to the bare bones of the software. Some of the training videos just don't explain in laymans terms.

Hey, this is just a small contribution by me to add to the mountains of good information and advice you and people like Celshader have given. The LW community is a giving one- and I've benefited quite a bit from it. Here's my 2 cents...

Thanks,
Gideon

People have done some really cool stuff (see Theo's and Red_Oddity's work).

What? this is a Great contribution, man! :)
Btw, have you tried with AVT_3DBump+? This free plugin allows to fake deformations like a microdisplacement style with a lot of detail and less geometry, I think that it would work better than texture displacement or normal displacement because we can work with less polygons (at less to simulate oil or watercolor) but not for colored pencils, since doesn't work well with LWEdges. :)

It does work...though it's not quite as easy to setup. I think you're write though in that it could help when going for a water color look...but then again using a displacement plane in front of the camera might also work just as well. It also doesn't seem to like dithered motion blur.

Once we have some Sub-pixel displacment we'll be in biz though.
