medSketch It!. AOP and Help

This AOP is identical to the Sketch It! AOP with the exception that the lines are thicker.

Like the other AOP, changing the DAP settings can make a great difference in how the image appears. You need to experiment to find the approach you like most. The ‘Outline’ setting is especially touchy.

Geometrix AOP

Posted by Saptarshi on Jan 2, 2011 in AOP Templates

Inspired by: Cubism

Cubism was a 20th century avant-garde art movement, pioneered by Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque, that revolutionized European painting and sculpture, and inspired related movements in music and literature.

In cubist artworks, objects are broken up, analyzed, and re-assembled in an abstracted form—instead of depicting objects from one viewpoint, the artist depicts the subject from a multitude of viewpoints to represent the subject in a greater context.

Often the surfaces intersect at seemingly random angles, removing a coherent sense of depth. The background and object planes interpenetrate one another to create the shallow ambiguous space, one of cubism’s distinct characteristics.

Tip: Use Real-Surreal slider to control the broken effect. Control the no. of strokes to adjust the details

Rough Sketch! AOP

Rough Sketch! AOP & Help

I made an error in the first help file I put up – the image had a space in the file name and the html was looking for the file without the space. If you downloaded the first one you can either remove the space from the file name or redownload the above AOP zip that now has the correct name for the file.
I also put the correct AOP menu image in the zip.

Rough Sketch! AOP is meant to simulate quick sketching with a pen or a dark pencil on very smooth paper (no texture in the line). There are a couple color palettes in it but the main reason I created it was for the black and white line sketching effect. You can, of course, add any palettes you want to the AOP and tweak the color for your personal usage.

It is also quite interesting to use a (water)color AOP to block in background colors and then sketch over that with the black and white. I have included a couple samples here that show that effect.

Graphite Smudge

Posted by ghealy on Nov 13, 2010 in AOP Templates

This AOP was created by Donkey Engine in May 2010. Renders a nice coloured or B&W pencil drawing. This was posted to the old forum, but not previously loaded to the Cafe. So I’ve taken the liberty of doing so, so anyone who had not previously grabbed the AOP could now do so.

The AOP & the Help files are included in the ZIP file. Also included are two Impression files. Check out DAP’s help file on how to add impression files to an AOP.

Thanks Donkey Engine, where ever you may be today.

Chinese AOP & Help

The original intent of this AOP was to see if I could emulate chinese black ink sketches. Well… that did not work out but the Chinese stroke brushes do make for a rather interesting painting.
