Pen enables you to draw directly on your character. The pen color will be the current color (as specified in the Color window).

This tool is located at:

Tool barMenu barShortcuts
Drawing > PenP

How to use

Simply select a layer, click on your character and start drawing. Note that if you draw with the right mouse button (instead of the left mouse button), you will draw with the second color (i.e. if the current color is the primary color, you will then draw with the secondary color, and vice versa).

Note that if some pixels are selected, you won't be able to draw outside the selected area.

You may also use the eyedropper when drawing with the pen or the bucket. To do this, hold Shift and click on your character like you would with the eyedropper.

If you draw over a layer from the library, Game Character Hub will automatically insert a drawing layer above (unless you chose the overwriting mode). This is to preserve the integrity of the item.

Upon selecting the tool, a new toolbar shall appear. This toolbar enables you to change pen settings.
