I'm toon rendering a model in a simple choreography with the character walking along the ground.  How do I get the character's shadow to render on the ground plane?

 

The character's "toon" settings are:

Line color: dark gray

line size: .8

Toon bias: 2

 

The ground's "toon" settings are:

Line color: white

line size: .8

Toon bias: 20

 

"shadows" are enabled in render settings.

Make sure 'cast shadows' are on in the light's properties, and maybe try setting them to raytraced shadows...

Set the Ground's "Toon Shading" Method to "Standard" if you want it to show shadows that fall on it.

Additionally, you can set its "diffuse" falloff to 0% for a flatter look.
