I have got the…Fast Shader material, and a nice red color. I'm just going to start painting…right here on the ocean and part of the island. I'm actually painting in three…dimensions to create this 2.5D stroke.…
To move this, I can switch to Move and the Gyro appears, and of course, the…stroke disappears.
