  • The Vision for Pencil2D

    Abstract: The document is an attempt at defining the concept behind the Pencil project. It is designed to serve as a reference and guideline for contributors of the Pencil project. I will revise it as it becomes necessary during the evolution of the project and following discussions with contributors and users of Pencil. It is currently based on my original vision and discussions with Oluseyi Sonaiya and Ian Moore.
