Make the Leap to Blender 2.8 and Grease Pencil

The massive update to Blender’s Grease Pencil (GP) tool in the upcoming 2.8 release continues to awe the community. As a fully featured 2D animation toolset, it’s a great time to test the waters with the 2.8 beta.

Specifically the lesson revolves around a simple run and jump action using a straight-ahead approach that will teach you essential GP tools as well as core 2D animation workflow.
