Grease Pencil doesn't work for me.

This is an exercise submission on the exercise Getting Comfortable with Grease Cut

This submission has passed!

Exercises are a great way to test what you've learned given certain restraints, while getting feedback from your peers. Plus, they're a lot of fun!

    Hey Colin, you definitely have the right idea - the purpose of the exercise was to show a technique and doesn't need to be tied to a specific tool IMO. Nicely done!

    Well done !

    forrest-harless Thanks for your thoughts and remarks. I 100% understand that the exercise is for the grease pencil but it's no bodies fault that the grease cut tool is outdated and only works on obsolete versions of Blender. At least me learning how to accomplish about the same results in a workflow I will be using shows I get the core concept. I understand it's not fair for the only 2 artists that did submit exercises but throughout the lesson, there are questions about the grease cut not working for them. One of the answers was from Kent Trammell saying to still submit if we can't use the grease cut tool, it skill means I'm learning and at the end of the day, that's what matters.

    ... but I still want those 24 points

    Based on the merits of both, your HONEST explanation of why you were unable to achieve the grease pencil portion of the exercise and you ability to adapt to your deficiency and still produce a finished result, I'm offering a passing vote!

    It's not fair to the other artists who did achieve the results per the instructions but I don't think it's completely fair to ignore the effort to adjust to one's current position and situation! However, I would strongly urge you to go back and do this exercise (as many times as it takes) to get those favorable results! Your way is sharp and clean but at the end of the day, still not correct! Based on the work you did to the contrary (and the fact that you came clean) I'm guessing you'll not only figure it out but you'll re-submit a superior finished product!
    Good luck and keep up the good work! ;)

    nice work...
    wrong tools...
    wouldn't be fair to pass you when everyone else used the proper tools...
