Sora - Toon Shader by mogcaiz Sora - Toon Shader by mogcaiz
** Please do not copy, alter or use my work without my concent! **

-----------------------

Woot? It actually looks like a drawing! Does it mean I can draw...?

Just for the fun, I tested my Sora modell with the shader called "Ink'n' paint" in 3dsmax. Some minor photoshop work had to be done to smooth out the glitches with the toon shader. Combining this shader, with a ambient/reflective/occlusion shader, the result became unexpectedly nice!

This is just a test render I did, so i didnt look at the colors so much. Im aware his hair should be less red, and his shoulderpads more blue/grey.
Anyways I hope you enjoyed this shading as much as I do!

OMG Please I have been searching lots of places for a tutorial on how to cell shade/ink&paint my anime character... Like everytime I do it in 3Ds max 2010 the Ink lines are NEVER right. Yours are perfect EXACTLY how I want mine... Please like somehow can you tell me the Ink properties you set, or a tutorial of how you did the ink bit soooooo good? ANYTHING would be awesome!
Thanks ^^

Hello! :) Sure I can tell you. But you will be disappointed. My ink'n'paint render were imperfect as well. I merely fixed those spots with issues in photoshop after wards :') However there are other renders you might want to try out, such as Cebas Final Toon or something. I'm not familiar with them, but it's worth a try.
Depending on your model and animation, you can also create outlines using geometry duplication.

I Think Toon Shader Is The Way To Go With This One! Your 3D Model Of Sora That I Say Was Good :D Though, I Think If It Had Toon Shade On It, It Would Be Better!

Hehe. I want to be really good at Toon Shading, but its much more behind it than just applying the shader, which is something everybody can do.
Getting a good and acceptable toonshading in 3D, is extremely difficulty :P
So there is nothing to be envious of me for ^^;

I did not ^^;; I spent about 2 weeks of working with him on a two months period (working very slowly) to get the model done.
The render to make him look like cellshading took me only 2 hours or so.

I modeled two three basic lump of hairs, then I duplicated them around his head according to how his hairdo is :3

:iconz3r0t0lerance:

so, are they polygons? or something else? are they real hair tools?
Reply
:iconmogcaiz:
mogcaiz Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2007  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes, its polygons. So no hair tools involved.

:iconz3r0t0lerance:
z3r0t0lerance Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2007
awesome! so does that mean, each poly overlaps another? it doesn't necessarily mean that you did the hair from a single cube, does it?
Reply
:iconmogcaiz:
mogcaiz Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2007  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes, there are a lot of overlapping, but as long as its not visible or looks bad, then go for it :3
I think I started the hair from a single cube or a part of a sphere.. dont remember.
Reply
:iconz3r0t0lerance:
z3r0t0lerance Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2007
ah so that's okay. I thought you need to only use 1 polygon for the whole hair, extrude here and there.

makes it sound a lot easier from you. thanks!
