Join Dermot O' Connor for an in-depth discussion in this video Inking with the Pencil, part of Toon Boom Animate and Harmony Essential Training.
- Now let's see how to do inked lines,…colored lines, using the Vector Tools,…the Pencil Tool and the Line Tool.…What we're gonna do is draw a big fat circle first.…So let's select the Ellipse Tool in the Tool Bar.…And make this one very thick,…I'm gonna set it to 60 pixels wide,…and use the Fixed Thickness Line…so we see a single stroke.…Set that back to 60 there,…and right in the middle of the screen…hold down Alt or Option and drag.…And to make this a perfect circle as you're dragging,…hold down the Shift key and then let go.…
Now what I'm going to do is to draw…an equator and a vertical line…like a meridian down the center, so let's create a line.…And I want this to snap, so in the Tools Properties…of the Line Tool, select Snap to Contour,…and then as you draw over the line…you'll see a little blue circle.…And that blue circle means that the Contour…has been recognized.…And anything that you draw from this point…will be precisely on that line,…so click and drag.…As you drag you'll see another blue circle…on the other side, and then lift up.…
