Hey guys,

I'm starting to work on my own animation that would probably be in my portfolio collection once finished. I really wanted to go with the same style of animation that is in the trailers for this game- I just love it. The only problem is I don't know what the style is called or what type of tutorials to look for. I have 3DsMax on my PC, but I haven't done a whole lot with effects/lighting yet. I just know the basics of modeling, unwrapping/texture, and rigging/animating. I've been looking but haven't found anything yet. :confused:

So, if anyone has a link or something I can search for to help me out a little bit, I'd be grateful,
Thanks :D

I'm no artist but I'd say this is what you're after: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cel-shaded_animation

Yeah, so, internally, we just call it the 'mini ninjas style' as we don't really have anything to compare it to. But, yes, there's a lot of cel-shading involved in it as well.
