Cartoon/ink node setup


inkrender2.jpgA very nice toon/ink look using composite nodes has been posted by blenditall at Blenderartists.

Take a look at this node setup:


Lots of control. Good to study. Thanks for sharing blenditall.


  1. neat, some problems with it getting a photocopied look (too much 'ink' not reperesenting the lines but just dark areas) and it doesn't handle colours (but you can do that externally of course with a blend) but still a handy resorce

  2. Carl Complaint on

    Looking at how the freestyle website hasn't been updated for roughly a year, and the fact that they include a 65k JPEG in print resolution on their web page, but scale it down client-side by using the "width" tag, I have a bad gut feeling towards this project. ;)

  3. Carl Complaint on

    @Bart: Sorry, just checked the Main and Gallery pages. It's just that I'm so used to dead open source projects that I'm probably very biased right from the start. My apologies :)

  4. that image for the node set up is not clear enough I can't see the names of the nodes on the right, is it possible to post the blend file or a higher resolution image plz? thanks

  5. Wow! This is pretty dang pimp. This honestly brings some great ideas to my mind and fixes other problems I was having .. working on a graphic novel, using blender for some of the things - and this was something I wanted. A SinCity/think sketch look to my designs ... very good. VERY good.
