 A Celshaded List

(This incomplete list covers works that are either fully celshaded (like Mission to Avalon) or a mix of hand-drawn and celshaded elements (such as Invader Zim and The Iron Giant). If you can only see one of the pieces on this list, I strongly recommend studying The Iron Giant. The mechanical objects (including the Giant himself) were 100% celshaded 3D objects, yet they blended seamlessly with the hand-drawn characters. To date, The Iron Giant features the best celshading I have ever seen. -- Jen)

City Parkhaus
Volkswagen (Update: these VW commercials were fully hand-drawn, not celshaded. -- Jen)
