Blob brush tool.

I have some trouble with the blob brush tool in the last step, shapes are not merging together when I draw the straight line.

Thanks in advance.

Make sure you're on the same layer as the Spaceman and start your stroke inside the object of the spaceman and over to the other side. Other issue if you didn't expand the spaceman making it one object instead of a collection of drawn lines before using the blob brush.

Thank you very much for your help but it didn't work. I've found out what the problem is after quite a while, the spacemen layer was set to 'template', I disabled this and it worked.
