A toon shader, with only the ink line showing? You didn't say which program you're using.

I don't have Maya 8. Actually I never use the toon shaders, I make my own and I never use ink lines, I just know that they are there.

Try the Solid Shader and an outline (pfx toonshape). That might work for you.
