Much research has been done in creating non-photorealistic renderings of objects that mimic the look of hand-made drawings by traditional artists. This thesis extends work in this area by presenting an NPR hatching method that can be applied to 3D animated films to help them feel more hand drawn. In contrast to most other NPR methods, this method preserves the 3D lighting and effects of the film that make it interesting to watch. This process includes a procedural algorithm to create a hatching pattern that can be easily integrated into any film's pipeline that uses Renderman. In addition, we create a set of controls to adjust the hatching that are easy to use and allow our style to be applied to many different objects in many shots of a film in an efficient manner. To show the success of our method, we will discuss the implementation and results of applying it to an actual 3D animated short film.
