All of XSI's fantastic toon stuff is in foundation. If you want examples, look at Appleseed, and several of the Animatrix movies (I believe both Beyond and Second Renaissance I and II).

appleseed was done in lightwave, go to the official site and look in the "storyboard" section on page two you'll see a model of the giant walking mecha inside of the lightwave interface.

Like a lot of projects, various 3D apps are used though I would presume XSI was used for most of the character work.

XSI doesn't "sound better and better". It is better. Do not contemplate laying down the chump change for Foundation. Just do it!

I donít know if any of you all browsed through softimage.com , but they have couple of short video tutorials available. Few of them covers toon shading. You have to log in to access them in the education section of their site. :wise:

Wow man, knock off the red bold lettering haha very hard on the eyes! :D Does anybody else have trouble accessing the tutorials on Softimage.com? With FireFox it keeps asking me to fill out my personal information after I log in, and with Internet Explorer I get 'page error' messages when I try to log into to it. I've got the 3dbuzz VTM's to work with now until I get the money (grr, which I was hoping to have by now!?) to buy XSI. My demo is almost up! Noooooo!
