Great work!

Highly deserving of the TR honors.

Thanks all, appreciating the comments!

Thank-you so very much for taking the time to post these tutorials, as you say, now to start further experimentation! John:+1:small_orange_diamond:+1:small_orange_diamond:+1:

Your welcome John. Love your work by the way! Slightly shocked to see they burn those sculpts at the end of the festival O_O

In the meantime;
another sculpt, another round of BPR filters. I love these filters! Can’t… get enough…! o_o
Sculpt is still a work in progress

Very impressive! Thank you for sharing your art and tips and tricks with us! :slight_smile:

Two more images of NPR experimentations.
I’m trying to get a nice range of pencil-drawn setups going. First a collage with various filter combinations tried out on some random works

And here my current favorite style. I was trying to get a bit of that Ghibli/Moebius pencil linework happening. And this is where I got it currently (and I’m adding an unfiltered screengrab for comparison):
The creature itself still needs a bunch of work, soooo… perhaps I should get to sculpting instead of all this BPR filtering >_<

Great job.


Update on my worm! Still a work in progress, but sculpting is done, but I am still working on the ‘narrative’ element here (or just the pose for this guy). Also I am still tweaking the NPR setup (which honestly have been most of the work for this project >_<) I am quite happy with the look so far, but I find that fibermesh can create a lot of noise, like in the tree branches in the back or on the moss, so I am still hoping to find a way to clean that up a bit without.


Another WIP. Tweaking texturing, coloring and finetuning the crosshatch and outline effects


I’m loving the latest image, you’re really capturing that illustrative feel. That latest guide is great btw, BPR rendering has been a bit of a mystery to me so I’ll be going over your guides at some point to see how it all works. Cheers! We
