Published 3 months agoΒ β€’Β 1 min read

Hey Reader,

Zach here,

Today, I have a free lesson for you, from our Magic Storybook course for Blender, which just received a huge update.

In this lesson, you will learn how to set up a simple but effective Toon Shader (Cel Shader), that works in EEVEE.

This shader can give any 3D object that 2D illustrated look.

In this lesson, you will learn how to:

  • Set up the Toon Shader using Shader Nodes
  • Use lights to adjust the look of the shader
  • Add procedural details
  • Generate 2D outlines using modifier

To follow along, you can download the project files, which are located under the video (click the link below).

If you are interested in learning even more about giving your 3D scenes a painterly look using Blender and Grease Pencil, now is the best time to jump into our Magic Storybook course.

We recently added 5 new chapters with 60 fresh lessons, covering a wide range of 2D/3D workflows and how to create a full Alchemy Lab scene from scratch.

Check out the new trailer, that covers all course info in detail.

Hey Reader, Zach here, Our new Urban Environments course for Blender is opening its doors in just two days. Today I want to share what this course is all about. If you have ever tried to build an entire urban environment in 3D, you’ve probably realized it can be quite an overwhelming task, but such an exciting project. We found that it's hard to find a full course that teaches you to create exactly that, step-by-step. That is why we teamed up with Cov Phillips to create the Master Urban...

Hey Reader, Zach here, I'm very proud to share that today January 29th at 4:30pm CET we are premiering the "Robotic Wildlife" 3D Challenge montage video. As we were going through all the submissions and winners for the edit, we thought this could be even better! We wanted to include a look behind the scenes on how these intricate and detailed robot designs were made. So we gave the participants that made it into the final montage more time to create some behind the scenes' footage. And man,...
