Lazy Nezumi stroke smoothing for Photoshop.

Journal Entry: Mon Oct 21, 2013, 2:27 PM
Hey everyone, just wanted to bring to your attention a plugin that might be useful for you. It's called Lazy Nezumi, and its main function is to help smooth your strokes out when you're drawing. So, if you want really tight, smooth lineart, or just clean lines in general it's pretty great. In a way, it lets you create a digital stroke closer to how you would on paper or a canvas, it just gives you more control. It's akin to the Lazy Mouse feature in Zbrush, or the Steady Stroke feature in Sketchbook Pro (which I'd highly recommend for anyone doing lineart, it has other great features as well).


There's a free demo for 30 days you can try out first and see if you like it. It has other features as well, but the one I find the most useful is the "pulled string" method under position processing, when you click details. It's something you might have to try to understand, but it can be super useful. 

The main issue I see is that there's no 'tether' between the cursor and your pen, which I believe is due to using an OpenGL canvas (which most of us use). It doesn't take much time to get used to however, as long as you don't make your 'string' exceedingly long. The nice thing though is that you can use it with other drawing and painting applications too, not just Photoshop, which is why I think the pricetag is at $20 for professionals. Students can get it for $10 though. 

I also have to mention it's PC only as of right now.

Anyway, you've got 30 days to give it a whirl even if you don't think it's worth a purchase, hope you find it useful!

I tried this few times ago, it was cool but unfortunately less natural than SAI's stabilizer :/

The 13.11.26 update makes it behave a lot more like SAI's Stabilizer!

It's much better now that it has an official release, but probably still not quite as good as a program that has it natively. I had some issues with it earlier this year, but now it seems to work pretty good all around.

I will have to give this a try. I have never enjoyed doing line work on the computer because of not being able to get the fine details, but with this plug-in I just might be able to. I am super excited right now!
