Free Comic Inking materials for Blender


Paul Caggegi writes:

Hi Blendernation! I've developed a set of simple materials that - when applied - render objects as though they were professionally inked by a comic artist. The materials are responsive to light and camera angle. They render quickly, and can be previewed with ease right in the 3D viewport. No UV unwrapping necessary, and three materials cover the basics: hard surface, glass, and glowing objects.

note: this is a FREE Patreon post. No subscription or payment is necessary to access the file.

Paul Caggegi

I’ve been a motion-graphics artist, video editor & 3D effects creator for almost twenty years, working full time since 2001, and freelance since 2008. I’ve worked on several corporate campaigns, TV commercials, web-videos, showreels and media branding packages for clients such as Nickelodeon, Saachi & Saachi, and Leo Burnett. I run a Patreon page to teach illustrators how to use Blender so they can create assets for their own projects.

    Thanks, Paul! This is a particularly nice set of faux-inking 3D materials.

    (And nice to see there's some love out there for Blender Internal renderer! Still handy for me, too.)
