Classic Ink Shader

This is an old gem of a shader for expressive rendering that might be big for those creating black and white comic/manga.

The Internal renderer shader is simple:

  • Lambert with a black and white color ramp.
  • A butt texture as stencil mask for,
  • A wood texture with custom black and white ramp, mapped as normal.
  • To enhance it, Freestyle or Edge is added.


You can port this into cycles easily. Please share your renders too. Have fun!
