Blender & Grease Pencil Beginner Tutorial – 2D & 3D Animated Scene – Part 1/2

By Kevandram

Hey Everyone, it’s been a while! Here’s part 1 of 2 of my Blender & Grease Pencil Beginner Tutorial. I had been thinking about creating a tutorial for some time and thought to create one based off of 2 videos I did previously. I had a lot of fun creating this video, and got a chance to animate my channel’s avatar! In this tutorial, I walk through the creation of an entire project, starting from the concept. The format is similarly structured to how I edit my design process videos. I wanted to create something helpful and something accessible to everyone of all skill levels. Again, I’m still learning Blender and there’s always awesome updates, but if there’s something I’ve missed or there’s a more efficient way to do something, feel free to mention it in the comments. Hope you guys enjoy!

The tutorial is divided into 2 parts, with this being part 1. Part 2 is scheduled to come out next week. The outline is listed below:
