A bit of Lightwave, Unreal and BESM cell shaded work on my anime girl Mei Mei.

I really like the look of that. I'm not so much of a graphics person (I have a good friend who is though and has some work here, hence why I'm here) but I like the attention to detail while still making it look like a character cell.

it doesnt look exactly like a cell shaded cartoon becuase some of the shadows are blurry wich in cell shaded cartoons they are not.
but awsome!:applause:

her leggings look very CG... the shader just doesn't feel right.

exactly. it is the legs that throw the whole thing off. and the hair. but the hair looks good though, just not cell shaded.

I think the hair matches really nice.

Agree with the legs.

Nice model and render though :thumbsup:

Yes Chewey! I like it a lot, especially the hair. Which you did.....How?!?!?

i know wot Bitmap means, i'm thinkin it could be the angle of the lighting, or just that black outline doesn't stand out as much as the rest of the model i.e. her hands and her right shoulder.

Sweet job Chewey:thumbsup: :applause:

thanks! the hair is just uv mapped clip maps on quite a few poly pieces.

Hah Har!!! i knew it!!!

i thaught i could see a good use of clip mapping around the bottom of her hair.:thumbsup:

so....i'm curious about something, which is which! wots UnReal, and Wots BESM? and how come you combined the two? :D

Chewey

They are both cel shader plugins for Lightwave.

:shame: lol

No i mean which surfaces did you use UnReal on and which surfaces did you use BESM on? and how come you use BESM at all? (i got the impression UnReal has the best control/options for celshading)

IMHO Unreal is the greatest thing since sliced bread (and bread is good!) :)

Chewey

I used Unreal for everything except the hair with I used BESM on. Made it easier to isolate the surface outlines from the hair geometry which used the clip maps.
The outlines would have followed the actual geometry outline and not the clip image edges.

you know, the stars is a tally of everyones vote, if only 1 person votes with 5 stars it gets 5 stars, on the bottom of the page you can rate the thread ;)

Hello Chewy. I like the modeling. The Cel Shaded one you got there is nice. but i think the skin needs more colour, Like the colours you have on her face... It appears to be 2 slightly different shaders. Just needs a little blemish to match the head is what i think.

Chewey her legs look a so much better now man! :bounce:

lookin at this one, and then the first one, you question if there was any celshading applied to her legs in the 1st post at all. the conrast is immense! and so is She!!!! :applause:
