A pencil shader that outlines my 3D objects to look like sketches

I'm currently working on a personal project trying to integrate my 3D animation with my 2D sketching style using the Arnold Toon shader and I would really love to know how to get more of a pencil drawing, sketchy kind of look to my renders. I've seen @Lee Griggs Images of his examples on his website (shown below), but when I ask friends, colleagues and even TD's no one really has a direct answer for me. If anyone could let me know the steps, help me out, or put me in the right direction, it'd be much appreciated! Thanks!

Hi Dan, what is it about the Toon shader that you don't understand? Have you also been through the Toon tutorials? There is a Toon shader example scene available to download here.

Is there a particular style that you are trying to achieve (images help).
