Watercolor Samurai

Final Eevee Render

Clay Render

Sketchbook Concept

Real Watercolor

This was a fun experiment made in blender 2.8 and rendered in eevee. The watercolor effect was made with emission shaders and a massive compositing node tree. I also have the original concept made in sketchbook and an actual watercolor painted by my wife.

Let me know what you think!


Totally looks like a painting :clap:


Thank you!

Fantastic. I love it.

It’s really impressive! Man, the only thing sad about this is that you made such an awesome work and the end result does seem like a water paint :sweat_smile:
Great work! :slight_smile:

Haha thanks!

Amazing! Would be nice to see the compositing nodes :slight_smile:

Amazing results! Beautiful


Here you are:

For any colored material I used an emission shader, just so that it was a flat color. For the black “ink” lines I just used a flat black defuse shader.

Let me know how it goes!


Thank you!

Thank you so much!

Don’t tell me you did all this (excellent) hard work…and you didn’t even animate a slow zoom to show off the depth! :man_facepalming:
