In this personal project, I experimented with the built-in Cinema 4D toon shader. I wanted to create a painting/drawing-like effect. It really amazes me, how fast the images rendered. The full resolution images are 6000×9000 pixels and one image only took 4 minutes to render. I decided that this wannabe surreal look would fit to the style of the shaders.

No.1: Chess
No.2: Music
No.3: Film

Most of the magic happens inside the luminance channel in the standard Cinema 4D material where I inserted the Sketch and Toon hatch shader. The rest was just tweeking some settings and playing with the lighting. In the end I added some contour-lines with overshoot and moved them a little bit to create an imperfect drawing look.
