Hi, i am going to create a simple character and animate it in maya, but i have a very specific idea about how i want to shade it, i want it to be 2 colours only - green and a darker green for the side in shadow, not blended at all. do you know how i would achieve this effect? I also want to create a thick black outline around the character.
I am almost completely new to maya i am afraid, i am planning on animating this character in maya and importing it into a 2d environment i have created in after-effects, the reason i want it to have 3d qualities and movement but a 2d style.
i have created a mockup of how i want it to look here
im sorry if this is a simple question, but any help would be very much appreciated!
thankyou so much! i think its quite obvious that i have been stuck firmly in the 2D and 2 and a half D world until now, i was worried that i would spend a lot of time modelling a character and find out i did it wrong for my purpose.
