Along with my latest Commission I have also been working on an alternate rendering/shader setup.
This setup is primarily designed with animation in mind and I am looking for a happy medium between my original style and a more cartoony look. I decided not to include a lot of outlines using Freestyle because they increase rendering time by quite a bit.
Since I would like to use this for animation I am attempting to keep render time at a minimum. So I have forgone any sort of reflection, SSS, or FSAA and opting in for 'fakes'.
I may or may not add in actual shadows, I'll have to see how it looks with em on.
Modeled and rendered in Blender.
