For a project, I am creating an animation. For this animation, I need to be able to connect my grease pencil drawing to my object to then be able to animate both.. with grease pencil I clicked on the "surface" option to draw on my surface, but it did not truly connect to the surface.. enter image description here

enter image description here

If it is not possible to connect the two, is there any other way to give that scribbling pencil effect to my object?

thank you.

  • $\begingroup$ first how were you planing on rendering the grease pencil? Other ways: UV unwrap your guy and scribble all over a texture. $\endgroup$ – David Aug 9 '17 at 11:08
  • $\begingroup$ Generally you can parent GP strokes to bone armature but there appears to be the control over the movement when strokes are parented to one bone so looks like you need to have as many stroke layers as there are bones. $\endgroup$ – Mr Zak Aug 9 '17 at 11:17

You can parent the grease pencil marks to the object first select the mark in object mode then the object i believe its shift p to parent it to the object if not try alt p
