NPR style of Team Fortress 2

While the gaming world waits patiently for the release of Valve’s Team Fortress 2, Jason Mitchell et al. have been releasing a deluge of material on the rendering style of the game. While there is nothing especially novel about the techniques, I think the paper is an interesting exercise in authoring a lighting model to achieve a desired look. It helps that the trailer videos are fun to watch.
