Grease Pencil Tools

A set of tools for Grease Pencil drawing.


  • Open Blender and go to Preferences then the Add-ons tab.

  • Click Object then Grease pencil tools to enable the script.


Box Deform

Create a deformation box around Grease Pencil strokes. Press Ctrl-T to launch the deformation mode.

The operational scope depends on the mode:

  • Object Mode: the whole Grease Pencil object is deformed.

  • Edit Mode: deform the selected points.

  • Draw Mode: deform the last strokes only.

Shortcuts available during deformation:

  • Spacebar/ Return to confirm.

  • Delete/ Backspace/ Ctrl-T/ Tab (twice) to cancel.

  • M to toggle between Linear and Spline mode.

  • 1-9 to set the subdivision level of the box.

  • Ctrl-Left/ Ctrl-Right to subdivide the box incrementally on the X axis and Ctrl-Up/ Ctrl-Down on the Y axis.

Rotate Canvas

Perform a rotation of the view in free navigation or active camera in camera view.

  • Maintain Ctrl-Alt-MMB to rotate view (customizable in add-on preferences).

  • Click and release immediately to reset view (free navigation only).

Straighten Stroke

Straighten the stroke between first and last point. The influence can be tweaked in the redo panel.

The scopes for this tool are:

  • Last stroke in Grease Pencil Paint Mode.

  • Selected stroke in Grease Pencil Edit Mode.


Straight Influence Reset

The influence percentage is stored for next use. Use Shift-LMB on the button to reset influence to full.

Brush Pack Installer

Install included Grease Pencil textured brush pack (made by Daniel Martinez Lara). This is available in Draw Mode in the Brushes panel.


This feature will be removed once the Blender official asset manager is released.
