The latest revision of Blender, to be licensed soon, includes rendering mode called “FreeStyle” with which we can obtain new representations of 3D scenes.
FreeStyle is part of the so-called NPR or Non-Photorealistic Rendering. They are rendering modes that deviate from the visual realism, incorporating techniques developed from the models we have known thanks to the comics.
We can see different modes of expression obtained with this technique of rendering, based on the determination of contour lines and expressive aspects of the model (curvature) different Style galleries.
Non-photorealistic rendering (NPR) is an area of computer graphics that focuses on enabling a wide variety of expressive styles for digital art. In contrast to traditional computer graphics, which has focused on photorealism, NPR is inspired by artistic styles such as painting, drawing, technical illustration, and animated cartoons. NPR has appeared in movies and video games in the form of “toon shading”, as well as in scientific visualization, architectural illustration and experimental animation. An example of a modern use of this method is that of cel-shaded animation.(W)
Como ejemplo, I leave a couple of case studies performed with the car model “F1” we have used to create wallpaper.

The first example is constructed only with lines.
We can add surfaces to the lines, using any of the rendering engines.
