Lightning Boy Shader 2.1 is a layer-based system that allows you to create any kind of NPR style in Blender.
Versions and Compatibility:
The current version of the Lightning Boy Shader is 2.1.3. It has been tested up to Blender 3.2.
To install the Lightning Boy Shader, go to Edit > Preferences > Add-ons, and Install the “lightning_boy_shader_2_1_3.zip” file. All the options can be found in the Shader Editor, either through the LBS panel on the right or by creating new nodes with Shift-A.
The shader comes with a detailed user guide to help you get started. If you’re stuck with something, you can also refer to the second video below, which aims to answer frequently asked questions and help beginners get more comfortable with using the Lightning Boy Shader.
Before anything, always make sure to check your Blender version. The current version of the
Lightning Boy Shader is 2.1.3, which has only been tested up to Blender 3.2. We do not
recommend using the shader with an alpha or beta release of Blender, as you will likely
encounter some issues. We do our best to adapt the shader to work with new Blender versions
as they release, but it can take a little time before we iron out all the bugs. For more info on how
to update the shader to a new version, check out the F.A.Q section at the end of this guide.
