Cartoon Shading anyone?

Postby boo23 » Tue Sep 22, 2009 1:21 pm

Is Canine Combat going to use some kind of toon shading (also know as cel-shading)? I think that toon shading would add a lot to the game and give it that more...cartoony feel.

I mean, the game looks great already but toon-shading might add that something extra.

Just look at these screens.

Toon shading might work. It'll depend though, as if the art already looks cartoony, it might not be worth the effort to implement.

Shaders arn't that hard to do. That is, if the engine was well designed... Otherwise it it's a PITA.

I could kind of see some toon shading. It will all depend how it looks though.

Wow. Speak of the devil. The new vid today looks like it's got some toon shading in it. I must say, it looks much better.

I take back what I said in my earlier reply. I think the toon shading does make it look better.

Yeah, I was a little leary too on how the toon shader would work, but I think I like it.

What exactly is the difference between cel-shading and toon shading?

Cel-shading is like toon shading except with cel-shading you get that black outline around your character.

Interesting blog on toon shading the other day. I agree, that toon shading adds quite a bit to the game and should not be removed.

Not sure who said it should be removed...but that person should get a kick in the rear, cause it looks way more awesome now.
