Grease Pencil Gets Option to Contract Filled Area


The Unstoppable Grease Pencil Developer Antonio Vazquez has just committed a patch to the Blender 3.2 alpha which gives the Grease Pencil fill tool an option to contract filled area.

This is one of those deceptively simple yet very useful additions to the grease pencil toolset, shaving solid minutes of tedious workarounds for any artists willing to achieve this specific effect. In practice, this patch allows the "dilate" value of the fill tool to go below 0 into the negative values, which in turn indicates by how many pixels the fill area is to be contracted.
