Pattern for water bubbles

Consider we have a bubble with appropriate gradient and shade. Is there a function in Inkscape to create a pattern of the bubbles. We need two things: (a) semi-randomly altering the size (generally, upper bubbles are larger) (b) randomly deforming the circle shape. Something like this picture: https...

How to change background color of a grouped element?

I create a 3D ball according to this tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=39mJPLl-nno or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3_Kw10dDKkY Then, I group the whole ball and create hundreds of the same ball by Titled Clone. Now I need to change the base color of some balls within the network. To do so, ...

How to create cloned/tiled cubes?

I use tiled clones to repeat a rectangular to form a larger rectangular. But how can I do this with 3D cubes to form something like

Note that the large cube should be made of individual cubes rather than pattern the surfaces of the large cubes, as I need to move/remove the small cubes.

Re: How to drop shadow for a transparent PNG imported?

WOW, I got it. Silly of me.

I missed the general filter editor. I simply tried it from the dialogue box of the Drop Shadow.

It's not lame at all. It totally resolved my problem. Thanks.

Re: How to drop shadow for a transparent PNG imported?

I still cannot produce what you've posted. Could you please upload your svg file. What do you mean by "dimension". Drop shadow has one parameter namely offset. The problem happen when the offset is larger than the distance of the png object from the edge of the png.

[solved] How to drop shadow for a transparent PNG imported?

I have imported a PNG image with transparent background. If I drop shadow from Inkscape filter, the shadow is for the visible object. Everything is OK as long as the shadow is within the frame of the PNG image. One lame solution is to have a PNG image with large empty area around the object, but wha...

[SOLVED] Is it possible to smoothen a curvature drawn by Bezier

I have a curved line made by say 100 Bezier points drawn by :tool_pen:

Since I made the line point by point, it has rough edges (sharp angles). I know that I can smoothen the angles by Bezier handles. I wonder if it is possible to smoothen all angles at one action?

Re: How to convert a bitmap line to textured vector line?

On the calligraphic pen, you can change the angle fixation setting to 0, and use a tablet which can track the pressure of the pen. I believe this is the ultimate solution, I was looking for. It should work perfectly. The only issue is that a calligraphic tool draws two lines along each other. Thus,...

If you want to duplicate that signature precisely I do not duplicate anything. It will be an original writing/drawing, but I want it to look like a real pen-on-paper writing/drawing.

For thickness control use :tool_calligraphic: instead of :tool_pencil: I don't agree when you say the middle of line is always solid (it's true in your new image much less in the old one) If you don't like the holes then start with the chalk and sponge filter (Filters/distort/chalk and sponge) and ...

What's wrong with the filter I provided in your previous post ? The filter you introduced is very random. It creates random empty spaces throughout the line.
