  1. kind of hard to follow since you use a custom Ui.
    im coming from 3dsmax, trying to switch for blender, so i use the default Ui for now to learn things. i think i understand the usefulness of your custom Ui, but its not helping newcomers to understand where to find everything you mention.

  2. The first things you show immediately fill the gaps of photoshop: a proper proportional editing; proper materials, editable freehand curves. I may consider to keep all this part of my workflow within Blender as a professional anatomy illustrator. An option allowing to convert a render freestyle into an editable draw layer would be the final bridge between 2D and 3D for me.

  3. The camera at the end should have went in rather than going out since his expression was happy and you want to convey a positive forward motion with that happiness

  4. Being Blender mainly 3D it surprises me it has such advanced 2D feature that even other softwares don't even have implemented nicely. The freaking fills ruin everything every time

  5. Been looking at what software to start with. I was looking at Adobe and Toon Boom, but I hadn't even thought of using Blender! I wanted to be able to have something like how Toon Boom has 3D stages, but I believe that's in the much more expensive tier, which the price kinda drives me away. Blender looks like a great start! Now I just have to wait for my drawing monitor to arrive lol I was originally willing to work with Adobe then do post work with DaVinci Resolve Fusion, but that's one hell of a learning curve
