Understanding grease pencil fill materials: gradients, textures, make your own!

I have a new tutorial diving into grease pencil fill materials!

As I've been attempting to recreate my painting process in Blender, fill materials have become essential. In other programs, this process involved using selection tools, mainly the lasso tool, to select shapes and paint into them.

I'm not able to do exactly that with grease pencil, but instead I have new possibilities with gradient fills and texture fills. Although it's different, once I've gotten the hang of it I find it a lot faster to do in grease pencil, with more options available - and of course, being able to select each stroke and modify it will always be the biggest grease pencil selling point to me :)

I love when the tutorials I make end up teaching me new things, and this video taught me so much! I went from not understanding how gradient and texture fills worked to being able to get exactly the look I want.

I hope that this is helpful!
