For this piece, I got comments from people curious how I made the animated 3D horse skeleton in grease pencil, so I decided to tackle this for my first tutorial series.
There are 4 videos in all. They are all up on my youtube channel free to watch, and you can check out the first one here:
Topics covered include:
- Drawing on 3D meshes with grease pencil
- Using the knife project tool
- Animating grease pencil objects using a rig
- Making a final piece
And to wrap up the series, I published a fifth video:
Breaking down the process of how I got 15 illustrations from this one 3D horse skeleton drawing.
