Rings of Saturn

Postby jahina » Sun Mar 21, 2010 7:24 pm


I am trying to figure out how to draw the rings around Saturn and am having problems with half of the ring being across the front of the planet and the other half of the ring being behind the planet.

I know this will be an easy one, but am a complete novice to Inkscape and indeed computer graphics. So, my apologies for the thick question.

you can also achieve the effect with boolean path operations.
