Moku Hanga

Version 1.42

Make a Japanese wood-block print from any photo.

Moku Hanga overview

Moku Hanga (Moku is the Japanese word for "wood," while hanga is the word for "print") allows you to create an artistic wood-block print from any picture or snapshot - no need for time-consuming carving - the artists from JixiPix do all the work for you! With the power to fully customize your Moku Hanga, you can create a masterpiece artistic enough be part of printmaking history!

The outlines in Moku Hanga are extremely eye catching, replicating a hand chiseled relief-art. Using sliders found on the adjust tab you can control the smoothness, width and strength of the chiseled outline to fit your composition. Presets are also available to give your project a quick start. Choose from a range of bold chisled outlines, and bright to subtle color combinations. If the preset colors chosen for your work are not to your liking, there is the option to alter your palette colors. Once the desired color is achieved complete your artwork with an artistic edge or paper. In printmaking the final image does rely on the choice of paper; whether it is kozo fibers or rice paper - this will add an artistic quaility to your print and complete your Moku Hanga.

  • Automatically create a work of art with the look of hand chiseled outlines and brushed on color, fully adjustable with simple sliders.
  • Adjust the outline width, strength and how smooth or fluid your chiseled outline appears.
  • Control the color in your artwork with saturation, strength and image color sliders.
  • Choose between two printing styles: "Multi-Color" or "Multi-Block".
  • The Multi-Color style uses all the original colors in your photo. By adjusting the "Image Color" slider you can reduce or add colors to your artwork giving it a variety of printed-styles, from a full-color block process to spot-color ones.
  • The Multi-Block style uses 5 blocks of color pulled from your original image then divides the colors across your artwork giving the look of carving a separate woodblock for every color. The cool thing about this style is the ability to "Randomize Colors" throughout your artwork and the ability to replace any or all of these colors, using the full-spectrum color picker. You can achieve simple to exaggerated color results using this process.

I guess it's more useful for may people as a standalone, but I'd like a PS plug-in version nevertheless.
