Re: Inkscape tutorials over at the Designmark blog

Hey all, here's a new tutorial I uploaded this evening on How to Design a flip calendar in Inkscape . This is a really fun tutorial which capitalises on some classic tricks of the vector trade to add depth and a touch of style to the design. It's not too difficult though, and really just centres on ...

Re: Inkscape tutorials over at the Designmark blog

You lucky souls - two Inkscape tutorials in just under a week. I received a request for a guide on How to Illustrate a Metallic Padlock by one of my blog readers, as it involves thinking of a way to simulate gradients beyond the normal linear/elliptical arrangements. Best of all, with a bit of plann...

Re: Inkscape tutorials over at the Designmark blog

Don't worry, I haven't forgotten about the blog and to add some Inkscape tutorials, I've just been ridiculously busy this last few weeks (months?!). No one said moving house with a baby was easy, and they were DAMN right. :lol: Anyway, I've just uploaded a new tutorial which I think Inkscape users i...

Re: Need some help with embossing..

Hi Virt, I think this could be possible with some inset/outset paths and a couple of cheeky black-to-white overlay gradients. Let me know if this SVG helps you at all, I could even write a tutorial on it if you need a fuller guide.

Re: Inkscape tutorials over at the Designmark blog

Here we go again, then. I seem to have been very busy in Inkscape lately, and here's another tutorial I've put together which is quite in-depth, but lots of fun to do as well. It takes advantage of Inkscape's wonderfully intuitive toolset and the potency of Live Path Effects when using repeated base...

Re: Inkscape tutorials over at the Designmark blog

If I could just get this screencasting thing down pat, it would be great. At first, I thought it would be difficult to find tools for screencasting on Ubuntu, but as it turns out, there are a ton of them to weed through in order to find what works best for me. Ah yes, that's one of a couple of reas...

Re: Inkscape tutorials over at the Designmark blog

Thanks, BTP, I really appreciate all the great feedback I get and the more readers come to the blog, the more tutorials I'm likely to write. The traffic stats are fairly good so far but I've got a feeling there are still plenty of Inkscape (and GIMP) users who don't yet know what I'm doing, so I'm o...

Re: Inkscape tutorials over at the Designmark blog

That's great, thanks for the bookmark and comment, lejimi! :D I posted a new Inkscape tutorial up to the blog last night. It's a little narrow in focus but that can also be a good thing sometimes when you just need to know how to do one particular thing. I was making some corporate-style imagery for...

Re: Earning a living using Inkscape

Not a "living" as such, but I am eking out a small amount of additional income creating web designs and logos designed in Inkscape. Very small projects and payments for now, but I'm hoping that my open source design software blog might lead to a bit more exposure and maybe a passive income...

Re: Export to PNG is fuzzy

Hi ewood, I've encountered this kind of problem before and might have an answer. When you select the shapes on your Inkscape canvas, look at the x- and y-coordinates in the toolbar. If they're non-whole or exact-half numbers (ie. 104.639 as opposed to 105 pixels), that can have an impact because whe...
