Cel-shaded animation (also known as cel-shading or toon-shading) is a type of non-photorealistic rendering designed to make computer graphics appear to be hand-drawn. Cel-shading is often used to mimic the style of a comic book or cartoon. It is a somewhat recent addition to computer graphics, most commonly turning up in video games. However, the end result of cel-shading has a very simplistic feel like that of hand-drawn animation. The name comes from the clear sheets of acetate, called cels, originally made of celluloid, which are painted on for use in traditional 2D animation. (Excerpt from Wikipedia)
