Turning Photo Realistic Textures into Anime Style Shaders in Blender


Using this tutorial by Comfee Mug you can turn nearly any hard surface PBR texture into an NPR Anime Shader in mere minutes, allowing you to bring your anime renders to life that much faster.

This may not work with all PBR shaders, of course, but it is a very easy way to make all sorts of anime inspired shaders on the go. I hope you enjoy this tutorial and learn something new!

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.
