Thank you for this! This will come in handy for everyone here!

I personally quite fond of cell-shading nowadays since it's easier and faster, so this is a great reference.

Thanks for the tutorial, I've been wanting to achieve a cel-shaded look very similar to yours, and the steps shown in the video are great!

Here's a quick test I've made to try it out, it's really effective!

(I have to work more on the palette, which was improvised on the spot)

Once again, thanks, and keep up the good work!
