TJ Toon Shading Interface:
Creates a toon shader network that has no hidden features or locked areas, via a gui. The network can be tweaked with or without the interface at any level, allowing students and experts alike to work off of this shader, using the defaults, or tweaking it to their hearts desire.

Good things:
- toon shades to the best of Maya's ability, this network ranked among the best out there to date
- extra soft as opposed to several shaders currently avaiable through various techniques
- mel script interface allowing easy changing and tweaking via sliders and buttons
- open network to view all levels
