Comic book style render in Blender

I was reviewing some of my articles from past years and found an interesting project, posted by congcong009 at the Blenderartists forums.

Reduce noise on Cycles: Free Node Groups

By the time we started to play around with Cycles for architecture, we had begun to live with a common characteristic of their renders. I’m talking about noise.

Apartment rendering with Blender Cycles

What do you use to start a project? A photo from a real world environment? The work of another artist? Sometimes it might be much easier to use a reference to get started, and another project that looks like the one you are trying to create may give the right directions. A few days ago […]
