Today’s post shows off a simple black and white sketch effect you can create with 2 passes of the Sketch Mass image operation effect. Like the Watershed Sketch ip op we discussed yesterday, you can use Sketch Mass to automatically generate bezier paths if you want to use the paint synthesizer to paint in the sketch paths to create a visually more complex sketch effect. For this simple example we just used the raster image output available from running the Sketch Mass action, which draws the sketch directly into the canvas.
The paint action sequence (PASeq) below was used to create the simple sketch effect show at the top of the post. Note that 2 different Sketch Mass effects were used to build the complete sketch effect. The second action step uses Min Compositing to overlay it’s output on top of the first action step output. Here’s the PASeq for you to download Sketchmass.paseq
