Default cellshader character (nprs)

ok this is a female character I'm modeling, I wan't this character to have the manga look or nprs shader ( non photo realistic shader), so I downloaded the script and It's look good but I want to put some file textures and looks like this script dont work with file textures, also when i put some lights in the scene looks like the shader isnt iluminated by the lights, example: i put a red light or a green light and the shader looks the same. I have use the cell for softimage xsi and in softimage the lights change the color of the shader and I think it can use file textures. Can this be done in maya? of course but how? I use maya 6 by the way.

hey that looks cool. I've played around with that script and it won't allow you to add light sources of any sort. The way you give it a light source is by assigning a very light value where the core light is suppose to be or where the core shadows are suppose to be also etc.

Anyhow it says so in the instruction.

Yeah.. I was kind of mad with that script and start trying some things with that and after a couple of days in the hypershade i come up with something really interesting, now i can use file textures and anything I want, and the light I put in scene affects the color of my shader. Here is an update with some hair and a uv texture map ( not final texture of course) comments pliz.

That's pretty cool, but I don't think I'm digging the checker hair though lol. Maybe you should try and add another shadow that's inbetween the dark shadow and the skin color. It'll definately bring out the ears more, and the jaw could be seen better. Right now it's just a flat transition from the neck to the chin.
I'm assuming you're using the cell shaded version of this script right? It looks cool so far. I should probably play around with it too, looks fun.

It looks cool kazama. Good work so far.

I definately agree with Anhslaught - I think adding another shadow color would help your model. I also think that the corner of your character's eyes could do with a little work. It looks a little too rounded on the outer corner.

Keep it up.
