There’s this Netflix show called “The Dragon Prince”, it has a low-framerate, toon shaded style, with toon outlines as well.
On some shots they show some tapered lines defining the nose (see yellow arrows):
Those lines seem to be placed there “manually”. I think it’s more apparent in the next two images, each from a different shot but with similar head angle, where both should be showing the nose line but only one of them is:
On other shots it seems they just use automatic outlines:
I want to know how they’re doing those manually placed lines.
I tried that solidify outline trick to get general outlines, but on a flat area like a soft nose (even if you crank the solidify thickness way up) it won’t make that kind of thick precise line, because the area is flat anyway.
Other things I thought of are using a beveled curve manually placed around the nose, but I’m open to ideas.
How would you do it?
