Absolute beginner here. I would like to make a very simple 2D animation using Blender, but am stuck at the very basic level, I don't even manage to draw any shapes. I have searched the internet a lot for guides and video introductions, and found quite a lot of them, but none seem to show what you need to do to draw basics shapes and/or the tools that they use are not visible in the Blender user interface that comes up when you select a new "2D Animation". After a lot of searching and trying out, I now managed to draw a filled grey rectangle, by selecting "Grey" from what I think is called the "Active materials menu", and then using the "Box" tool to draw the rectangle. I have not been able to draw in other colours.
As an example, I have found the following answer, which says that you need to "create a new (fill) material", but I have not been able to find out how to do that: Blender 2.8: Grease Pencil Fill Brush Not Working
So I am looking for a way to do the following:
- draw basic shapes like a rectangle, circle, etc, each with a different colour.
