The Blender team has presented an upcoming Grease Pencil 2.0 tool with a new demo called Hero. The thing is that the update will bring more possibilities for 2D animation artists. 

The Grease Pencil will provide 2d animation tools in Blender’s free full-3d pipeline. Want to get a clearer idea? Check out the end credits of Hero for in-production scenes from the demo.

The Grease Pencil technology has been there for a number of years, but the upcoming update is said to allow for “feature quality animation production” in Blender 2.8 Please note that the first beta of Blender 2.8 will be available in the second half of 2018.

The Hero project was created in Barcelona, Spain, by Daniel Martinez Lara and his team. It is also worth noting that the project was funded through Blender’s subscription-service Blender Cloud.

    Blender 2.8 should focus more on 3D creation including material painter similar to Substance Painter. We have Opentoonz already.
