We describe a way to render stylized silhouettes of animated 3D models with temporal coherence. Coherence is one of the central challenges for non-photorealistic rendering. It is especially difficult for silhouettes, because they may not have obvious correspondences between frames. We demonstrate various coherence effects for stylized silhouettes with a robust working system. Our method runs in real-time for models of moderate complexity, making it suitable for both interactive applications and offline animation.
