I always liked illustrations which seems a bit cartoonish and vector style. Many work I have seen with inkscape and illustrator astonished me. Since i can’t download inkscape for now, All i was left to do was to be jealous…
Recently I found several techniques to transform blender into an illustration program such as inkscape/illustrator. With special shaders and nodes I succeeded in several effects. See the image attached for this post - all of them are vectors in blender internal with no pixel based textures.
I’ll post better and more advanced Illustrations later on this week. So this is an experimental thread for those attempts.
Feedback will be appriciated (If anyone wants a tut or the blend file, say here)
Tutorial for this style: http://www.mediafire.com/?qztmtgmomon
Credits: The tutorial for illustrating the ornage and the speaker are from http://vectortuts.com/. Theese are tutorials for Adobe Illustrator which I converted to Blender using the SVG style Technique.
Notes: I am planning a script for exporting SVG created by this technique (it will only work for illustrations that were created with this technique), yet it will take some time since I’m sooon begining the semester in the university and that will leave only a little amount of free time for developing this.
