Toon Shader Pack, Komikaze

by DoubleGum in Materials, Shaders, Textures


WHAT IS KOMIKAZE ?

A collection of Shaders/ Materials, Effects, Demos and general assets for all Comic and Toon needs. Made especially for Non-Photo-Realistic (NPR) renders.

Works flawlessly with Blender EEVEE, optimized for real-time rendering.

3D SHADERS

Each material comes with its one unique node, enough to easily control colors, textures, and mappings, allowing fast and flexible workflow.


Here are some tests done on different kinds of models, using the first 8 Komikaze Shaders. They react to light, cast and receive shadows and support multiple light sources.

'Into The Spider-Verse' has been a major influence and inspiration behind these shaders.

BONUS ASSETS

A number of text boxes, speech/ thought bubbles, and action/ sound graphics.
Please check their 'Shape Keys' section for more easy-to-use controls.


Some quick examples created from the text boxes :

The typefaces shown are free to use for commercial purposes and are included in the pack, with all the text boxes and examples.


DEMONSTRATION

A scene that demonstrates the true power of the Komikaze assets.

(Please note that the 'Santa' and 'Fireplace' models are from League of Legends, property of Riot Games. I have included them for testing, but they shouldn't be used for any commercial purposes.)


Just added another scene to the pack for test purposes, 'Cucco Commotion'.
Note that the models are from 'Legend of Zelda : Wind Waker' and 'Hyrule Warriors', property of Nintendo. Brick texture by Justin Messner.

UPDATE 2.0 (3rd May 2019)

1. Molly : Trying to create a psychedelic visual with the geometry.
Edge Split > Subdivision modifier will do half the trick (see bottom right corner :)

2. Dither : A classic pixel dither technique, homage to the 8-bit era.

3. Hologram : First *moving* shader I have ever worked on, all procedural :')


4. Alpha : a go-to toon shader for see-through materials like glass or smoke.

5. Aqua : Water shader with waves and moving ripples.

6. Blueprint :

7. Chroma : an experiment with RGB split gone right :)

8. Kismet : A wireframe shader with more depth and control.
The stars are dupli-verted, rest is shader magic. :)

Final shaders for the first update :


I also managed to update two of the original shaders:

1. Notepad+ : improved with better controls, margin added, grid fixed

2. Heavy Metal: improved controls, fixed reflections, satanic suzanne


UPDATE 2.1 (6th August 2019)

  • Install as an Add-on 
  • Custom Normal/ Vector inputs supported
  • Improved controls
  • Light Source's colors now affect the shaders

  • Add-on updated, shaders appear in their own category
  • 8 new shaders have been added:
