View Full Version : Tutorial : Basic nodes - Building a celshade surface in the node editor

11-26-2012, 01:22 AM
In response to a comment made at the last SDLWUG online meeting about basic nodes, I've posted up 4 videos on creating a celshaded surface using nodes (a small section from my early "Celshading without shaders" (http://www.liberty3d.com/2010/06/celshading-without-shaders-tips-and-tricks/) Liberty3D video). Its got 4 parts (around 26 minutes in total I think) - starting with complete basics and working its way through to adding edges using a reversed light incidence concept along with front incidence angle to clean up various shading and lines.

Hopefully its of interest to anybody wanting to just have a play with nodes, or for anybody wanting a few ideas and tips they can use to polish up their own celshading. Enjoy!

I highly recommend buying Kevman's cel-shading vid. I refer to it regularly, for the Cel shading techniques and for setting up nodes. And it's a steal for $10 (even less if you take advantage of their current Thanksgiving sale).
