Well..... you'll have to model just like you'd model anything else....

You could try looking for a spline modeling tutorial. i see them often coupled with original drawings.

I pretty much only do anime with LW.

even basic celshader works.

you need to do your character design first, then build in modeler.
then render.
its the texturing [and lighting phase] that gets your cel look but you need to plan your model in advance to get the right look.
theres no magic render anime button! :)
