I have this cloth simulation here and want to animate a 2D ghost face on top of it using Grease Pencil.

enter image description here

I've tried simply drawing on top of the surface but I'd have to redraw the face for every single frame and if I want to tweak the simulation later I'd have to redo everything. Idealy I'd like to animate the face on 2s, 3s and have hold frames as well.

Any help is greatly appreciated, thank you!

  • $\begingroup$ Well, you need an animated texture in this case. $\endgroup$ Oct 27, 2022 at 9:15

Currently Blender 3.3 doesn't have any tools to keep your drawing to the moving mesh.

Grease pencil drawings have an issue with weight painting which leads to problems with moving objects. If you really wanted, you could rig the grease pencil drawing with empties or armatures and manually weight paint the drawing. Then you could parent the rig to the moving object. This will be more complicated than your current solution but it's probably the closest way CURRENTLY to get what you're asking for.
