I tried writing a tutorial for Inkscape but I'm really bad at explaining things. It's a lot easier if I just show you :D

This is the basic process I go through when I make an icon or any vector work really. Created all in Inkscape, except for jpeg conversion.

I took a different approach this time. I like it a lot better now.

EDIT: The image is blurry, but if I click "Download" it's crisp. Hmm...

EDIT 2: The icon files (PNG) & source SVGs are now available to download at GNOME-Look [link]

I started this one yesterday and ended up working on it until 2:30am... I got so into it I lost track of time. But I eventually got some sleep and finished it up today. It's created entirely in Inkscape, except the circle on the top right and jpeg conversion was done in Photoshop.

The longer I worked on this the harder it was because it was starting to slow Inkscape down. Probably from all the gradients... just about every single shape or line has a gradient fill. Redrawing during zooming was especially slow, though still managable. I added circle in Photoshop to show some of the detail lost in the low-res rasterization.

PS If you can't read the text, that's a "Vector" brand guitar and an "AmpScape" amp ;)

PPS The title alludes to the fact that Inkscape is free and open source, and an absolutely rockin'! :D go to [link] and check it out

This is an icon for the Pidgin instant messaging client in an Oxygen (KDE 4) inspired style. I still have to optimize the smaller sizes, and I'm not sure I'm happy with the angle of the beak -- comments/critiques?

Made in Inkscape; I will release the icon PNGs & SVGs once I finish.

Eventually I hope to have fully "Oxygenated" icons in GNOME & XFCE.

This is my very first tutorial. It's about creating swirls in Inkscape. It should be very easy to follow. If you don't have Inkscape yet, download it at [link] for free.
Try this tutorial, you will see, it's a fast and easy way to achieve a wonderful effect with better results than drawing by hand.

Comments are appreciated.

This took forever. XP Don't be intimidated by the size: you don't actually have to learn all the techniques. I just chose to list all the ones I've tried to give you ideas.

Wanted to try a more realistic style in Inkscape. Balloons seemed easy enough.


Inkscape 0.41, still in windoze because I'm having gentoo network trouble and don't have time to fix it yet

Submitted to OCAL [link] in svg format zipped along with variations.

[edit] fixed the reflections
