Hey everyone! My name is Didier Nguyen and I'm an Illustrator, Concept Artist and Anatomy teacher for the Game & Movie Industry. I've worked for Activision, Toys For Bob, Quantic Dream, VOLTA, etc. as a Freelancer. Today I want to show you a tool that I think immensely sped up my worflow for Stylized Projects such as Crash Bandicoot 4 and Spyro Reignited Trilogy!
If you have any questions, suggestions or comments feel free to contact me directly on Artstation!

I love how Nguyen uses the Cutout Filter and gives some examples of different applications (little versus too much information and how it translates to the filter). It def speeds up the work flow and I highly recommend trying it if you're like me — highly visual individual that needs to see things taking shape fast. With a bit of trainin one may come up with a huge variety of styles using the filter. By the end I sat sobbing and wishing Procreate had something similar :)

I've used the cutout filter before for ideas on how to stylize things because it has an interesting way of simplifying shapes, but I've never really thought of using it like this.
This is a simple but effective tutorial showing how to use the cutout filter in your workflow for both visual flare and as a time-saver and I'm definitely trying it sometime!

This tutorial is easy to understand. It is a really useful technique to use when you want to speed up your process when you paint and render. Especially when you have many characters to do. Also, it is a really cool effect when you want to stylize your character. I got nothing else to say. Just positive words. I would like to see more tutorials. :)

An absolutely unique approach to cut out the more time consuming and less pleasant parts of making an artwork. i highly recommend this to get into rendering faster, it also boasts an underlining understanding of unique and out of the box ways of approaching the subject of line art/sketch elimination in paintings.
I most highly recommend this tutorial.
