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

By Kevandram

Part 2: https://youtu.be/YuS6dNbfOcY

Hey Everyone, it’s been a while! Decided to create another 2 part tutorial series. This is a bit shorter/simpler than the first one I created and I tried to incorporate other techniques here like geometry nodes. This is based off a few design elements I created in some previous videos. In this tutorial, I walk through the creation of this entire star scene. It’s a bit quicker, but I hope it’s 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. The outline is listed below:
