Re: Rock concert poster

Thanks Xav and Tylerdurden for your answers. I'll give a try to your advices Xav, as I'm not fully satisfied with the way the title stands out. It's not enough. Another problem is that the document will be printed both as a A3 poster and a A6 flyer. So I had to size things up, and now the whole lack...

Re: Rock concert poster

Hi ! The first version was intended to be a draft : something to be used as a start for collective thinking work. In my opinion it's an easier way than trying to get ideas from nowhere. The dark side of the method is that I'm drowned in emails saying : "Change this. Change that. A little furthe...

Re: Rock concert poster

The trouble is I've no direct contact with the print-shop : I'm working for a friend who has a friend who is able to print the stuff but perhaps won't do it so my friend will have to turn to an online print-shop. I guess this is what is called a "graphic chain" but this one is pretty entan...

Re: Grendizer

Yes I know that I made my outlines a way that creates many points (use of ctrl + /) and that some path are overlapping because they're all closed. Maybe you could propose a method to cure this last point ? Anyway, you were very kind to take some time to create this example, it'll be very usefull. Re...

Re: Grendizer

I uploaded the last version of the svg file. Now there are some shadow (but not all) and the outline are in a layer above the others. The hands are still to be designed with details.

I will have to tweak my shadows and highlights to determine the right transparency and blur amount.

Re: Grendizer

It's the first tutorial I found, and it's no so bad. I gave a try to Blender once, it's a great soft, but it's very difficult to learn it. In front of this billion-buttons screen I felt as if I was a very stupid guy :-)

Re: Grendizer

Thanks Lazur for this extra search. I would say the second image is the best. This character is deep carven in my memory and like any schoolboy of my generation I used to draw it much when I was young (so much younger than today ;-) ) The first and third one seem wrong in their proportions, and the ...

Re: Grendizer

Yep that's exactly the "tracing paper" method I use, but it's not plainly satisfying. If you zoom too much, for instance, you make meaningless gestures and can't keep in mind the overall shape. I used this technic much when working in a screenprinting workshop, but we mostly reproduced log...

Re: Grendizer

Thank you Ragnar. I edited the first post to have picture showing correctly. I also incorporated the model, so it's now possible to compare. The parts covering outline are highlights wich I intend tu blur and make transparent. This should solve the problem. If it doesn't, yes, I'll put outline on a ...

Re: Earning a living using Inkscape

I'm not sure CYMK is a real problem : RGB allows more colors, so it's always possible for the printer (the man) to do the conversation with his own tools with no need to guess missing colors (and you may always control the final proof). Anyway, I found a little useful tool here : http://www.blackfiv...

Re: how to cut out a shape?

Re: how to cut out a shape?

^-only when the original object is a simple path. If that's spiro, if that's a text, if that's a bitmap, if that's a group of objects Ctrl+- wont help. Some more detailed explanation of the problem would make things clear. Yep ! But most of this may be turned to simple path... The first question wa...
