You can buy artificial intelligence hackbots from adobe for that.

Re: Can Inksape deal with more than 10,000 objects?

There's a little bit of info about Inkscape vs AI here, mainly 6.1 and maybe something in 6.3: https://inkscape.org/en/learn/faq/#inkscape-and-other-programs In the manual is some info about tools, terminology, and techniques to accomplish similar goals, to help people transitioning from AI to Inks...

Re: Can Inksape deal with more than 10,000 objects?

Sidebar: Inkscape works very differently from Illustrator and other vector editors... it is actually natively writing an SVG text file which creates limitations that the proprietary formats used in Ai (and others) won't have. Im curious to understand the difference between what AI and svg does. Do ...

I can say with confidence that using the default.svg document above (placed in the user profile templates) should resolve the issue. If it doesn't, just delete it from the templates folder and we'll press-on. The template you provided, put in my templates folder, does the trick. Thats good enough f...

Re: Units

When you said "Stroke width tab" I guess you mean Object menu > Fill and Stroke > Stroke Style tab. That's where you can find the width setting. The part that's confusing, is that if nothing is selected, those options and fields are grayed out. Yes, that what i mean. The units may be gray...

Re: Color selection/palette harmonious artwork

There are countless tutorials on colour theory on the web. Both for real and digital painting. I remember watching a tutorial on youtube, that gave the advice to shift the colourwheel a bit into a cooler hue for shadows and then take down the lightness. You can also work with blendmodes. For example...

Re: Details from sketch to inkscape

In my opinion you are getting lost in detail. If you look at the overall image, its cool because its this depiction of a larger than life manga hero, standing on a cloud and wielding a huge sword. Thats why i would start inking the whole image first, because the lineart is really the key ingredient ...

Re: Can you use the Spray Tool to stamp single objects ?

I guess the purpose of the Spray Tool is to randomly create objects, although it would have been a nice "joy ride" to use it as a stamp.

The idea of doing pixel art with a grid of cloned blocks isnt too bad.
Will give that a try.

Can you use the Spray Tool to stamp single objects ?

Im currently making pixel art by arranging simple blocks on a grid. Mostly i do this by duplicating and moving, but it would be so much easier if i could just stamp it, because its always the ame object im using.

Re: Filling an open path

Use the 'Fill Between Many' LPE In case the Strokes are one path, perform a 'Break apart' (if already broken apart, make sure they all have the same direction, if not apply 'Reverse') Draw a path (a rectangle for example), give it the desired Fill colour Apply the 'Fill between many' LPE to the rect...
