# Why is the airbrush grease pencil path so weird?

I am trying to add some soft shading by using airbrush, yet the brush path is so weird that there is no transparency in overlapping stroke. Is there something wrong with the setting?

• HI, it's better to just ask one question per post, thanks. Regarding the main question, what do you mean by "so weird"? can you try to describe the difference between what you get compared to what you expected? – wilks Sep 21 '20 at 10:42
• Understood, thanks for letting me know. The "weird" thing is that the airbrush does not work normally. The brush path is supposed to be overlapped other path, however, there is a visible path of the brown airbrush now. – VT Sps Sep 21 '20 at 16:19
• right, now I get it! don't know the solution but maybe edit your question to include something along the lines of "no transparency in overlapping stroke" and someone might be able to help – wilks Sep 21 '20 at 16:35
• Edited, that's the situation I have encountered but not yet solved. – VT Sps Sep 21 '20 at 22:37
• i think i worked it out, in the material tab try changing the Mode Type from Line to Dots. you might have to play around with the layer's opacity to get the same result as you had, but it won't leave the white edge marks – wilks Sep 21 '20 at 23:21

In the material tab change the Mode Type from Line to Dots to get stroke edges that blend properly when they overlap
