I would like to 'draw' a basic 2D mesh of any shape using my mouse. I've read advice on using grease pencil, but if I use grease pencil and convert to a mesh it seems to have lots of different properties and the mesh doesn't behave normally at all. I feel like this would be a straightforward feature that a lot of people would want as it would save a lot of time, so maybe i'm missing something?
For example I want to create the outline of a beer bottle (or any shape using a reference photo), and have as simple a mesh as possible? Instead of creating a basic object and manipulating it.
