Yes. Find under "lcaoCartoon" command



These are cartoons (preset shapes).

I was thinking about "real" display analogous to "atomicOrbital" where the lobes are isosurfaces calculated based on actual mixtures of s and  p for a given atom.  For sample, in addition to "standard" cases, instances such as sp^2.12 for the lone pair in ammonia or sp^2.33 for the lone pairs in water that are calculated based on bond angles (and effective charge) of the atom with lone pairs.
