Sketch & Toon Style 5: Watercolors Tutorial 20 Comments


The fifth and final in the series of Sketch & Toon tutorials for now. For the first time ever Chris will spend more time in After Effects, getting only two simple render passes out of C4D using CityKit to have something to render quickly.

    Man but I really, really have enjoyed this series. It’s no exaggeration to say that I’ve found it to be (by far) the most accessible and fun look at some of the 2D (ish) artistic styles that Sketch & Toon/After Effects are capable of emulating. While I would obviously love it if this was an even MORE extensive and ongoing series (there have been a lot of great suggestions in the comments for sure) I’m super grateful for how much was shared & how many different styles you manages to get into.

    So, yeah! Can’t wait to play with several of the things that I learned here — just a ton of cool options. Very cool, and thanks again!

      Thanks Jason, it was a lot of fun to do. I think I’ll be focused on some other things for awhile now though!

    Of course you could also save yourself a ton of time by just using one of the 1,000s of watercolor presets to process the image in Synthetik’s Studio Artist (www.synthetik.com) ;-)
