Better illustrating tools

I create game art and I love Figma and would rather use it than Sketch… But the pen and pencil tools in Figma are not good for drawing, the workflow is too slow. They could be great with some minor changes, if you’ve illustrated in Sketch or Illustrator you’ll know much easier it is than Figma.


  • When drawing a shape, the path should close automatically, or at least the shape should be fillable, so I don’t have to be so precise and drag the last point over the first point.
  • There should be a hotkey to toggle fill and stroke quickly.


  • I want to be able to add a new point very quickly and drag the point
  • I want to be able to double click a point and change its bezier properties quickly

Hey @BrianO,

You nailed it! Couldn’t agree more with your ideas on the Pen and Pencil tools. It’d really bring our Figma drawing experience to the next level. Fingers crossed they take our feedback on board!
