The origin of this short tutorial is my vote in the referendum for impeachment of the Romanian President, Saturday 19 May 2007. I vote NO to the impeachment and NO to the restoration of the communist mafia , also known as patrulaterul maro or the 322 . How is made
Preamble It's been a while since I wrote a tutorial (in fact quite a while, as "wrote" != "published") and that was for good reason: I was not able to come with a tutorial fitting the rest of my my tutorial site and did not want to break the tradition . So it was a hard decision to write this piece, which comes as a conclusion to my quest to create a RPG tileset of over 50 clipart images , a decision I made mostly because I already was asked about how I made the images and expect even more questions in the future.

Edit Edited by Teresa, Alakeia, Krystle, Eric Beginning image and completed work A hackergotchi is an avatar used in blog aggregators.  Traditionally they are made in GIMP and consist of a digital headshot with a drop shadow, but this article will try doing something a little unusual: draw one in vector graphics using Inkscape . Note: This process will work with other types of images also. Edit Steps
Creating a "Web 2.0 style" Badge in Inkscape v.45. by heathenx. Select the "Stars and Polygons" icon. Left-click and drag your shape to the desired size.
How to create an Icon using new features of Inkscape 0.47, such as: gradients, blur, path effects, and mask on texture layer. We’ll be walking through every step involved in creating this grungy RSS feed icon box. There is some great vector material in this tutorial! Final Image Preview Below is the final image we will be working towards. Want access to the full Vector Source files and downloadable copies of every tutorial, including this one?
With this Inkscape tutorial you will learn to draw a 3D looking snowman, but ultimately you will get a grasp of creating shadows and reflections the right way. Inkscape is a relatively young yet fast evolving generic vector graphics editor in the lines of Adobe Illustrator and Corel DRAW. The application can be run on Linux, Windows and Mac and it's freely distributable along with source code. Its main file format is SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics, a W3C standard recommended for publishing vector graphics on the Web). I'm going to show you how to use this great application to create 3D looking images and I'll use my snowman postcard as an example. For a start let's create very basic shapes and play with them.
Inkscape is an open source alternative to Adobe Illustrator and other programs for creating vector graphics. In this first Inkscape tutorial for VECTORTUTS, we’ll create a beautiful coffee cup and show off some of Inkscape’s features. We’ll mostly be drawing shapes and using the Gradient Tool to accomplish the desired effect.
I will follow some ways to create various kinds of web buttons with Inkscape : simple, aqua, crystal, with and without shadows, of various colors and in various states. Simple buttons with a 3D look I'll start with the simplest button, which will be reused later for the other styles. Using the Rectangle Tool draw a rectangle and fill it with the desired color. Round the corners (here I used a 16px radius): Duplicate the rectangle, fill the copy with a gradient from partly transparent black to fully transparent black. Put the copy over the original rectangle (I used two rectangles to ease the creation of derivatives with other colors later) Duplicate the rectangle once again, move it a bit to the right and down, make it black, apply a slight Gaussian Blur filter and move it at the bottom of the stack, under the rest of the elements.
After multiple attempts to find a good free diagraming application I think I have found a decent solution. I'm not creating enough diagrams to justify buying something expensive and I don't feel like finding a graphics designer to make Dia diagrams prettier. If you have a Mac you are probably not in as bad a situation since you can buy OmniGraffle for $79. But for those of us without a Mac or who are just very cheap I think the best solution starts with Inkscape .
