There were no code updates in the Freestyle branch in the period of May 4-10.
In the meantime, a nice render was contributed by FEDB from Japan. The characters are those designed for the poster and flyer (by Obahan) for the Blender Party @ Tokyo, Japan 2009. The strokes are made by sequentialsplit_sketchy.py with some parameter adjustment. See the blog post on this render, in which a sophisticated edge rendering technique based on composite nodes is also exlorered. Thanks FEDB for sharing all the cool stuff!
