Basic Toon Shading in Blender & Cycles

Software:
Blender 2.79

  1. Set a Toon BSDF as your model’s material.
  2. Activate the Freestyle option in the Render Settings, and set Line Thickness,
    * More line style settings are found in the Render Layers settings.
    * Freestyle lines are only rendered in the final render (F12) and are not rendered in the Cycles viewport interactive render mode.
