Help with drawing a classical Spanish Guitar

Postby AnalogueMan » Tue Feb 06, 2018 6:32 am

Have searched the internet for some help how to draw a classical Spanish Guitar without success.
I only need a front drawing of that Guitar.
Yes, I can find some drawings of a Guitar but all of them have the outline of an electrical guitar.
Can someone give me some help where I can find the guitar shape that I want?
Thanks in advance.

I'd try the search term "accoustic guitar". Then select clip art or line drawing.
Have a nice day.

I'm using Inkscape 0.92.2 (5c3e80d, 2017-08-06), 64 bit win8.1

The Inkscape manual has lots of helpful info! http://tavmjong.free.fr/INKSCAPE/MANUAL/html/

You can also try differnet search terms, such as what TD suggested. After you choose an image, save it, then import into Inkscape.

Then use the Pen/Bezier tool to trace it "manually". Do you need instructions for that?

Or you could use Path menu > Trace Bitmap, to auto-trace it.

Thank you very much brynn and tylerdurden for your valuable information.
I am starting to investigate those wealth on drawings. I obviously have chosen the wrong search terms on the internet!
Although I have moderate experience using Inkscape, I hope I can manage to get things going.
And my experience with this Forum is a very positive one for getting help. :D

This can also help:

https://openclipart.org/search/?query=guitar+acoustic+

You can search, select and import a drawing from openclipart right from inside your Inkscape by going to "File > Import Clip Art...".

Thanks prkos, just visited the link you gave. I am sure that I can use one of those art examples.
