I think the easiest way is to import you model, then make a duplicate of it. turn off the duplicate and apply the realistic materials to your model. then switch off that model and reveal the duplicate. Apply toon shaders to this model. Render out two passes, one with toon and one with realistic. Combine them in an image editing application by applying a gradient mask.

If there's an easier / other way, I'd love to hear some other workflows!

If you want your toon render to look similar in colour, you might apply normal materials first, then duplicate the model, go through the materials and switch the shader to toon. I'm assuming it would leave the main colour chip as per the realistic material?

Nice renders, if you use a gradient instead though, you can control how harsh/gentle the transition is...
