Cursive writing with flowing pencil animation tutorial - Video/Intermediate/Blender 2.8

I saw Justin over at Blender Frenzy doing animated video titles with animated Bezier curves and I wondered if I could take it further to create an animated pencil that “wrote” with a cursive stroke.


Cursive writing with flowing pencil animation tutorial in Blender 2.8(13mins)

Here is my tutorial for creating

  • Animated stroke
  • Pencil following the stroke
  • Pencil flows (angles during drawing)
  • Animates between curves
  • Basic pencil mesh
  • Pencil stroke texturing

Shows how to use “Copy to Location”, “Follow Curve” and “Track To” constraints.
