“Kairos” Fan art recreation, made with Blender Grease Pencil by Daniel M. Lara

Daniel M. Lara does it again with his fantastic implementations of Blender’s Grease pencil. I’ve personally tried this method and I have to say I have no idea how he’s doing it because I can’t get even close to the details he does out of Blender’s Grease Pencil. Granted I don’t know squat about Blender so I can’t  really complain. Nevertheless, it seems like it’s a fantastic tool and if the developers can continue working on it, it truly may become a powerhouse with regards to 2d animation. One of the most amazing parts of the tool is the way you can lasso art and bend it much like the complicated deformers available in Toon Boom harmony, yet you can do it without deforming anything. It’s quite incredible.

Below is Daniel talking about the future of Grease Pencil. Notice when he demos the tools, he  lassos then grabs arms and legs as well as faces to distort them perfectly. What a tool!
