🎨 [Free Lesson] Easy Toon Shader in Blender

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).
