Free Blender shader turns 3D models into pixel art!

This may be very interesting to every mod maker here...

Japanese artist Toshihiro Kushizaki has released the "Pixel Art Shader"
a free Blender shader that converts 3D models into pixel art like this:

Holy mother of God indeed, this can provide an unlimited source of sprites for use with duke 3d, doom...

It'd be interesting to see if this can be used to make well-suited Duke 3D-style art. It may just be that particular model but it does look very anime. Lots of solid colours etc.

He just had to use probably the most anime model in existence to demonstrate the effect didn't he? :D

*feverishly gets to work porting Tomb Raider to Duke Nukem 3D*

(though this is most likely limited by the fact that it's a Blender shader, so many of the proprietary models used in the Tomb Raider games probably won't work)

No clue. If you like the Pac Man style look. I tried it, but like the maker, I have little experience with Blender, and ... like in the old days, you want to make sprite sheets. So either way you end up with photoshop or gimp

Blender would do instead of DAZ, if you know how to animate models with it.

Would be much easier to animate in Blender and then render the model. You can light it in Blender as well, so it dosen't look like it's in a studio.

This is pretty cool, but nothing groundbreaking or really exciting.

First of all, it will only work for cartoon/cel-shaded style artwork.

Second, those types of solutions never give a really good result without human input. The provided example serves as a really solid base, but I wouldn't use it without any tweaks and cleanups - the jaggyness of the material stripes looks pretty bad for example.

I don't think we'll ever get automatic solutions able to give us results like this for example:

So yeah, it's a really neat tool but nothing to deliver a final image.
Cheers :D

That program intentionally pixelates the output image. I wonder if there is an option to output hi res.

Was it developed by someone here then?
