Sketch & Toon Outline Question

Hi

I'm taking my first stab at toon renders and although C4D makes it really easy to get awesome results, I'm battling a bit to achieve a certain result with the outlines. I can understand that the outlines are computer generated and will never have a 100% perfectly hand drawn look but I think I should be able to come pretty close with some help.

Could someone please tell me how I should go about getting a very similar look to the outline in this drawing or maybe point me towards a shader preset: http://www.marcsilvestriart.com/sto...CENT_COVER.html

I'm particularly interested in achieving the variaing line thickness which is obvious in this drawing.

Thanx in advance

The preset 'Pen (Thick and Thin)' gets you 90% of the way there, just boost the thickness up.

Thank you so much. With only about 10 to 15 minutes of playing around with the settings in that preset, I got to almost 100% the look I was going for.
