I like your technique on the bricks. That's a very toothy turtle :D

This is still a work in progress as I want to add a background of city street to it but this is my first try at using inkscape. I really enjoy using it. Plus its philosophy meshes with my own ideas. Viva Inkscape!

I know it doesn't compare with some of the other great drawings, but it is my first.

Tried re-doing a previous MS Paint picture in Inkscape:

Still trying to get the hang of Anime style art.

Here's a transit map for Brisbane, Australia I created not long ago. Inkscape's considerably more advanced than Dia for this sort of thing; even in terms of basics such as gradation and rotating objects. (Admittedly, it's poorly scaled—the text size requires the whole shebang to be enlarged to the height of the Burj Khalifa, just to be legible in print form.)

Nice work! This is obviously a professional job. I normally wouldn't recommend Inkscape for this, just because I would expect the client to want the graphic in CMYK and in an industry standard format like PDF or AI.

Actually, it was something I did just for kicks. And because the official maps of the "frequent" bus "network" are utterly appalling!

Wow -- awesome work! I love maps (of all kinds) and enjoy looking at them, even if I've never been there before. These are exceptional :D

Thanks! Ideally, a bus map should show which streets each route travels down, rather than just the stop names (especially with all-stops local service). Melbourne's tram network is something I might try depicting in a more detailed way; there are a lot of attractions there for residents and tourists alike.

It's crazy how much better your design is. So much detail. I love how you've indicated the zones and the choice and use of colour. Your design highlights so many design flaws with the official ones. I've been comparing them to see where you must have sacrificed detail, but it's all there. Every city should be contracting your services :) I'll be book marking these for the next time I need to catch a bus.

They'd be better off recruiting graphic designer (and transit map connoisseur) Cameron Booth. His work is the bee's knees and then some. Especially his unofficial maps for Washington DC and Boston. They pretty much set the standard.

That's a really impressive transit map!
If I ever get to Australia...well, that probably won't happen, but if I do ever end up there, that would be really handy! :)

Here's my first inkscape attempt...in the past I've mainly used a vector editor that seemed to have a user-friendliness approach, with a very intuitive user interface but much fewer actual vector options. Since inkscape is a comparatively more complicated vector editor, I spent the first half an hour just figuring out what all the buttons were, and still don't understand most of them! They all look so promisingly nifty..someday, I'll figure them out! xD

Sorry its so ...big xD

Truth be known, there wouldn't be any pressing reason to visit Brisbane; it's just an overgrown country town. And the transit fares are among the world's most expensive, for appalling service in most areas. Venture off the handful of routes shown on the map, and it takes forever to get anywhere. What you see in that schematic is the best of a bad lot!

That's a most impressive drawing!

Welcome jas!
Very nice work -- I see a lot of potential there. I predict you will be very successful with Inkscape :D
Your work is slightly reminiscent of this excellent Inkscape artist viewtopic.php?f=8&t=9424. Maybe you can learn some of his tricks?

Maybe if I do ever get there, Brisbane will have improved its service and lowered its prices? One can hope!

Thanks for the link brynn! That artist has some super amazing works...if I could actually manage to learn his tricks, I'd be very happy indeed! xD For now I'll content myself with simply enjoying some of the step-by-steps he has, though :P

Hi all, new here. I've been playing around on inkscape for about a year now and recently finished my first project which was a logo for a football supporters club. Took me some time, but I'm quite a perfectionist when it comes to logos so this was my first effort on ye ol' inkscape.

Thanks. I've rendered it a few different ways since so it actually looks even better in my opinion but this is the basic layout.

I'm not sure if to welcome you or greet you like an old friend ;)

Nice work on the illustration. Even though it's not the feature, I like the logo.
