The pack for your ‘2D Sketching rendering needs’. This is a pack of ZBrush render and filter settings to render any 3D mesh as a 2D rough sketch using the Best Preview Render (BPR) with a single click. The collection comes with 24 ready-to-use BPR settings to recreate the look and feel of Blue pencil sketches, graphite, pen, charcoal, and more. There are also 4 special filters and 3 custom MatCaps for a more advanced effect.

This pack of BPR filters is a fun and refreshing way of rendering your 3D meshes. I’m a huge fan of the ‘illustration’ look on 3D objects, so I wanted to create something that can be used on any mesh to recreate the effect of 2D sketches. The filters work really well on any type of mesh (hard-surface or organic) and all the settings can be tweaked to suit a more particular look if you want to.

The filters are very simple to use. You can load all the render settings (including tweaks to the shadows, transparency, etc) or just the filters settings and then click the BPR button, That’s it! - All the filters can be further customised to suit your needs, all you have to do is select the filter/effect you want to edit and adjust the settings of how it is being applied to the rendered image.


What’s included:

With this ZBrush BPR filters pack you get:

  • 24 different BPR settings and filters to render 3D objects as 2D sketches in ZBrush

  • 31 Tileable textures with ‘Sketchy’ patterns that you can use to customise the look of your renders (swapping the texture overlay filter in some of the filter settings of this pack).

  • A Quick Start Guide in PDF format with the reference for the resources of the pack and a few tips and tricks.
