Daniel gives us a quick sneak peek on the new Grease Pencil in the upcoming Blender 2.8
The new Grease Pencil’s main focus is to create a more friendly interface for the 2D artist, while keeping the advantages of having a full 3D suite underneath. Grease Pencil is no longer just a stroke, it’s now a real Blender object with huge improvements to brushes and tools.
Credits go to the Grease Pencil developers Antonio Vazquez and Joshua Leung. While Daniel Martinez Lara and Matias Mendiola support the developers with demos and testing.
This development is currently happening on the ‘greasepencil-object’ branch, based off 2.8, and it will be merged soon so everybody can test using the build-bot.
