Tutorial Focus:  

  • Nice tutorial Chris

  • Awesome Tutorial guys! Really helped make sense of some of the walls I was hitting in Sketch and Toon.

    I’d love, if you do end up doing a whole series on it, to get a tutorial on creating a kind of Borderlands series look as I love the art in that series and getting the shading/texturing to look the way it does while also having hand-drawn outlines would be really neat!

    Keep doing what you do!

  • Excellent tutorial as always!

    I feel like I’ve heard in other forums this in not possible….but….is there any kind of “workaround” to getting S&T shading from C4D into Unity 3D? There are some decent toon shaders for Unity…but nothing that matches the control and artistry of C4D!

    The typical workflow is an .fbx export from C4D, and I believe that’s the limitation. I figure if anyone can find a path, GSG can!! 🙂


  • Love the out take on this video! Haha! Awesome video Chris. Nice tips on Sketch and Toon. Quick and thorough!
