Comic Style in Blender

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Thursday, June 11, 2015 Under: Tutorials
Hey all!!

Time for another video tutorial!! I'm really enjoying making these and I'm glad to see that you guys still enjoy watching them. The Make Human to Anime one is almost at a 1000 views! GOD is awesome!! Thank you for watching!

Today, we cover something a little different, comic shading! Oh yes! I don't know about you guys, but I really like the look that some comics have. Some have really smooth shading while others have a more flat approach. May have something to do with budget and time constraints too, but they've always looked cool. I got the idea for this tutorial from another great tutorial maker called Alimayo Arango; remember I talked about his spin on my anime tutorial in a previous post. You can check out his graphic novel tutorial on his channel. Credit where it is due! haha.
Also, a huge hey to all those who make comics out there. The style is truly inspiring!!

GOD helped me come up with a unique look and approach, so I hope this helps you if you want to make your own story into a comic or whatever. To watch it, you can simply click the image below:

For those of you who want a bit more info in writing about the tutorial techniques, you can download the Tutorial Reference:

Just to give you all another example of what this technique can be used for, today was my dad's birthday and we had to make him a card. Of course, knowing blender, GOD gave me that assignment for the most part, which I really didn't mind, though I was slightly antsy about getting it done on time, and finishing the tutorial. Anyway, I really felt lead to go with a sea theme and this image was the result of that:


This is not the technique in it's raw form in the tutorial, but a modification of the same methods, just applied to different areas, including the shadows. Most of what you see here, is proper lighting and texturing. The texture of the image is the compositing. I am happy to say that all were happy with the card :D.
In case you were wondering, this is the ocean modifier.

Again, thank you to everyone who commented, viewed, shared, subscribed, etc. I really appreciate that! GOD bless you!! I do want to talk about something more serious though. Also the reason for these tutorials: Salvation.
Do you know JESUS yet? Why do I ask? Simply because HE is the one that enables me, and shows me how, to make these things, through the HOLY SPIRIT. I don't get this info from any other source. John also said: "A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven." John 3:27, KJV. How is this relevant to the tutorial? Simply because this is one way that JESUS has sent me into all the world. A lot of you may never have even heard who HE really is, only that HE's often named in movies in a horrible way. Did you know that HE paid a heavy price for you? I'm sure you've heard John 3:16, but do you know what it really means? Think of yourself as a criminal, if you stood before a judge, would he let you go because you say: "I know it was wrong, but I'm mostly a good person."? Of course not, because if he was just, he would give the punishment that was determined. Now, GOD made the universe and HE made you. Which means, whether or not we like it, HE is in charge, has the final say and we will all face HIM one day for judgement, because that is what HE determined. Knowing that we have failed to keep HIS commands, and miserably so, HE sent JESUS to take the punishment that we should get - which is eternity in Hell. This paid in full sentence however, only applies if you accept that payment and live for HIM.
Just ask HIM, HE hears everything and sees everything. "JESUS, I believe that YOU are real and I believe YOU died for me and was raised on the third day for me. Please forgive me for my many sins. I make YOU the LORD of my life, full time and to fill me with YOUR HOLY SPIRIT. Teach me how to live for YOU, help me become what YOU have made me to be, in JESUS' Name! Amen!"

"For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen." Revelation 22:18-21
