    Oh bump maps are complety off. I'm still investigating why the jean texture looks like that when rendered with the shader.

    Edit: I think I fixed the problem fidgeting with the shader settings. Still might not be to your taste, but I'm pleased with the result.

    This looks better. Good luck with what you're doing.

    Thanks! DzDefault's toon shader is a lot better than most people realize, and I intend to document my techniques once I have them refined enough for public consumption.

    I don't know if this approximates a manga-style illustration. The color scheme comes from a mecha anime I watched some while back -- Mazinger Z if I'm not mistaken.

    Cheers!

  • @csaa thank for Blender material library info . Cool render too !!

    @vrba78 Great example from DAZ default toon shader use !!

    Thanks. The only thing I'm not applying the shader to in that pic is the hair, which I use DG's toon hair shaders on instead.

    @juvesatriani,

    Thanks! Here's omething I worked on recently, tyring out a noir style of lighting and cel shading in Blender. It's sort of Hellboy-ish, but monochrome! wink

    The two G8F figures, the stool and the tree came from DAZ. I applied the night sky background using CSP. With coloring out of the way,

    it's easier to think about the image as a whole -- it's mood and message.

    Cheers!

    @juvesatriani,

    Interesting image! You may have to use After Effects - https://photography.tutsplus.com/tutorials/how-to-add-motion-blur-effects-to-cartoon-animation-using-after-effects--cms-38034 - for the animated motion blur that you want.

    Cheers!

    @juvesatriani,

    Simplicity in life. Yearning for that is a sign of creeping maturity, my friend! laugh

     

    I think we tend to look for patterns as we grow older, that's why we clear away the distractions and try to aim for the essentials.

    As a photographer I knew once said, it's easier to think about composition and emotion when photographing in black and white.

    Master that first, he adviced -- master setting the underlying bone structure --  and once you move on to color -- overlaying the flesh --

    the images will come out wonderfully.

     

    Cheers!

    Really love how that turned out. Gonna have to break down and give your presets a try. I love trying to figure out stuff myself, but these are just too good not to try. Probably gonna be tomorrow evening before I get a chance to play with it though. Work and all that other boring IRL stuff to contend with and all.

    @juvesatriani,

    Great work! The shader captured the texture and the lighting quite nicely. Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers!

    So that's the secret sauce! Never would have occoured to me to fidget with the Rim settings to get an effect like that. You're damned clever for working that out!

    Thanks for nice words guys ! Thats encourage me to explore further .

    @csaa love it what you`re doing with your style , especially the last one . Remind me about Minimalism Trend in web design .  Maybe you find your market in there ;)

    @vrba79 , yeah I think  thats one of many pwToon perks .Those RIM LIGHT workaround idea actually came after I`ve seen lots of Digital Comic Coloring Tutorials

    The way how they`d created  nice overlay/secondary color FX in top of simple shading object inspire me to experiment with  those RIM setting . Same goes happen with the light presets 

    I know I`m not 3D Shader or Material and Lighting expert in term of technical stand point , so getting ideas from outside of 3D world and try to mimicking those steps into 3D is what I mostly did.

    Sometimes it will break the rules but since NPR is About Breaking almost standard 3D rules , so I have no problem with that LOL . My Blender EEVEE Multipass method also one of samples how I Breaking the rules as long I can get result just like I want :)

    Thanks again guys for nice words. Keep your NPR`s soul Happy !

    @Daventaki great style and image .  I hope this thread will be one of many reasons DAZ didnt ditch 3Delight in future version . And Maybe they`ll adding more Non Photo Realistic options for us ( Real Time OUTLINE like in Poser Comic Book Preview etc) :)

    @juvesatriani,

    There's something to be said about different approaches to NPR. All rivers lead to the same ocean, the saying goes. Somehow there's a common visual grammar we all follow. We all combine the same building blocks such as line, color, lighting, etc to communicate our intent. But because each one has a unique perspective -- the result of different experiences and cultural background -- we communicate the same idea, feeling, situation or symbol differently. It's certainly useful, as you say, to tap into other art fields for inspiration. After all, the tools we use (PWToon, Blender, etc.) are just tools. Without a motivating vision, these tools, sophisticated as they are, can't produce the outcome we aim for. To this end other genres are a great source for nurturing our unique vision.

    Cheers!

    Js Flat Demo and Universal Setting

    Guys , right now I`m building new preset for pwToon as alternative for my complicated Multipass technique . That will be for anime or cel shading style . And since this only one pass ,thats possible to make Video or animation with it .  I`ll be releasing next week after ironing some quirk and make sure to finish the guide . 

    For Now , check this setting if you wanna get same style .  This is same style I`ve been used in  this Looping video 

    EDIT: In sample image All line created using free GEOSHELL Outline

    Have fun
