3D to 2D: Toon Shading & Freestyle


In this video I walk through the process of shading my character and apply a freestyle edge to him. Remember, there are numerous settings and setting values that can achieve a different styles of a “2D” look. In this video I show you some  of the main settings to use, but you should always experiment with the values.

I hope you guys are enjoying these videos! If you are, please comment and let me know. Share with your friends, or subscribe to my YouTube channel and/or my email list =)
