Hi, I’m a 2D digital artist who’s been using Blender to draw for over a year now, and I've always wanted to get a traditional pencil style with grease pencil.

All the brushes shared in this video are free to download, you can find them here

This new feature can also be combined with vertex colours in Blender 3.5, and here is a piece made in a coloured pencil style using these brushes:

Thank you for reading, I hope this video is helpful!
