Problems with butterfly tutorial


Hi, Animate newbie here.

I’m following the butterfly tutorial and after the first wing is drawn, the tutorial shows (at an unhelpfully rapid pace) adding spots on the wing and then dividing the wing with a brush stroke to colour an outer segment of the wing in a darker shade of blue.

I’ve followed the tutorial but cant get the brush stoke to segment the wing, it just remains as a whole piece.

any ideas? thank you

The way it’s done on the video is that the line is drawn with the Polyline tool. Then the line is selected and they convert it to a brush stroke by going Drawing > Convert > Pencil Lines to Brush Strokes. Then you should be able to fill in the outside area.

Hope this helps.
