The tip of the pencil - when it comes to Photoshop Scripts
Pencil Pixels Photoshop Scripts for Art Effects
Bento Box Series - Comics

This Script produces 22 comic effects. For your convenience it comes as 3 scripts. A Full version where all 22 effects are generated. And two additional scripts containing 11 effects in each.  Turn any image, or set of images into different styles of comic art with just one click.  Compose a comic page first, or composite your results after the Photoshop effect.  The comic art styles were based on common elements found in numerous artists' use of shading, texture and line work.  The script provides the ease of a one-click creation that would normally take hours to draw and fill.

Similar to our Multifile Scripts - Each effect is saved as a 'Snapshot' in the History pallet. When the script is completed, just select any of the history states or snapshots and that effect will be editable. All the layers that make up that effect are available in the layers pallet to adjust if you like.  Like our actions, you can vary the effect by changing the opacity of the different effect layers.

This Art Script effect works best with a wide variety of images from portraits to landscapes. Best suited to portraits and subjects on a simple or plain background. The effects are outstanding when used on images where the subject is in a dramatic pose or has intense facial expressions or where the camera angle is extreme, just like the subject matter of … comics!
