Another Grease Pencil test, an entire city in under 10 minutes:

The nice thing about this is you can create a library of reusable "models" to finish storyboarding or sequentials in a fraction of the time. No 3d modelling required. If anyone is interested I should have a video tutorial on sale next week.

Both of the last examples look fantastic. Up to Blender 2.7 my old Nvidia graphic card was sufficient, but it doesn't work with 2.8. The next computer will be better equipped.

Will do chucky. :)

Thanks exile! Are you sure it's the graphics card? Blender had a few major updates recently and it might work now(2.8 didn't work for me either until last month, and I'm also using a really old Nvidia card.)

Another grease pencil experiment:

Hi exile, did the latest version work for you? Nvidia Graphics cards from around 2010 or later should be compatible.

Blender 2.8 is a big change from prior versions, so I'm putting out a beginner tutorial series aimed at 2d artists and people who have never used Blender before:

Look at the Github page for Opentoonz, and the Morovia page for it. Opentoons is going strong and being updated and suggestions are being made and if good implemented

DarthFurby, you are right! The latest 2.8 works on my 10+-year-old desktop! Thanks for cluing me in.

This looks nice. Remake of Hilda intro in Blender with Grease Pencil tools.

I know it's a fan remake, but they seem to have the same problems with artifacting that I did when trying to draw in 2.8. I hope they can address that before the final release.

As if we needed more reasons to get excited for 2.8. They added a curve tool to grease pencil!

That's so elegant and appealing.
I think I have a crush on Blender.
