I am Di, a casual digital artist. I use Inkscape, and I have a passion for heraldry. I like to learn more about drawing, so my art is getting better as time progresses. I speak English and Spanish.

I'm curious, how do you go about making your assets? I'm getting into using Inkscape myself and I'm amazed at how detailed your heraldic work is. So if you could give me any insight into like what tools you use and how you do shading it would be much appreciated. If you don't mind of course. Your work is amazing and I hope you keep it up!
Hey, thanks! Essentially, I use assets taken from Wikimedia Commons and edit them together. For things that don't have available assets, I do my best to make them. For shading, what I often do is take the main shape, and use ctrl+9 to make a shrunken version of that shape. When changing the color slightly and repeating this, it makes the charge look shaded.
