Fade | Toon Asset Pack

by Thatimster in Surfacing

Toon rendering is hard! Broken normals or Emissive shading are your only options and both results are equally disappointing...

...until now!

Thatimster & Wayward Art Co proudly present:

Fade is a Toon Asset Pack crafted for quickly creating NPR scenes and animations.

Core Features:

Smooth Toon Shader

One Toon Shader to rule them all! Consistent light based shading with additional controls for contours, specular, shadows, border / outline and normal maps. Flexibility and control like never before.

Solid Toon Shader 

Need something more traditional? The Solid Toon shader has you covered! Controls for border noise, light scaling, shadows, alpha, color and normals will allow you to quickly fit any model into any scene within a few seconds.

Smooth Shading

Apply to any mesh with 1 click and obtain smooth results regardless of the shape or size. Completely dynamic and 100% shader based, no mesh modifiers needed.

Vegetation Shader

Maximum shader control for any alpha based material, change color, texture, smoothing, outlines, shadows, ambient occlusion and more!

Procedural Color

Every included asset and shader has the ability to change its color. No need to edit the colors of the texture. These procedural shaders allow you to modify the colors of any material to perfectly match your scene.

Procedural World Skies

Mix reality with powerful node groups for magnificent backgrounds. Available for Day and Night with more to come.

Background Gradients

Make your models pop with colorful background gradients, visible from any angle, perfect for turntable art!

Low-poly Grass

Create massive fields of grass with very little overhead. Procedural wind control, animation, color and ambient occlusion.

Fog Shader

No more emission problems with volumetric fog. Shader based fog with simple controls and batch processing to copy settings.

130 Nature Assets and Shaders included: 

Bonus Weather effects (automatically animated via drivers)


No need to spend hundreds of hours modelling assets and tweaking shaders. With a wide variety of different nature elements you can simply select any model and add it to your scene with 1 click. 

One Addon, Many Functions:

Instantly add shaders, models and skies to any scene with a few clicks. Asset previews, scale control, particle setups, automatic fog setup and much, much more!
