The Watercolor Stylization brings real-time watercolor rendering of 3D objects and animation directly within the Maya viewport.
Defines the global concentration of pigments placed over a substrate, giving the render a more saturated and darker look.
Edge Darkening Intensity
Defines the global strength of the edge darkening effect.
Edge Darkening Width
Defines the global width for the edge darkening effect.
Make sure to also increase the Edge Darkening Intensity attribute with wide edges, as wider edges dilute pigmentation.
Defines the maximum global width for the bleeding effects.
Defines the global sharpness of the drybrush application.
Max Gaps Overlaps Width
Defines the maximum global width of the gaps & overlaps effect.
It is the first watercolor stylization pipeline of MNPR based on algorithms algorithms found in:

- Art-directed Watercolor Stylization of 3D Animations in Real-time
- Edge- and substrate-based effects for watercolor stylization
