Continuation: The toons

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Thursday, November 21, 2013 Under: Quick Blog Tutorial
Hey all!!

Today is a bit of a follow-up / QBT post based on yesterday's with the tooned monkeys. After yesterday's post, I worked on doing a final monkey (no textures, so the lines are limited) and this was the result:

(there are three lights in the scene, the monkey isn't crazy, haha)

I like the result a lot! I do rather which that around his ears the lines were more prominent and that anti-aliasing actually responded on my PC (I think it's something set on my graphics card that is preventing it). Eitherway, I find, for the most effective black lines, you use as little black from the toon shader as possible and that you use the ramp instead:

Here, you can see, even on the preview sphere, that there is very little toon shader and a lot of black normal based influence. This, as far as I know, is the only way to add an outline without doing something really hard or off the wall, that I just don't know yet, haha. Remember, each material is different, so don't be so glued to this that you won't try something different.

For yesterday's blue material (which I changed to make the above), you just use a much smaller diffuse size. Then you get really big black shadows.

Anyhow, that's it for today! Hope it helped you.

Thank YOU!!!!

"For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen."
