Whoa! You did that with Inkscape? I'm really impressed. Do you use the multiply/screen modes for those shadows and highlights? Or do you just plop normal low-opacity shapes on top?

Inkscape, yep... And yes, I'm using multiply blend-mode for shadows. I think this looks more natural than simply throwing some dark, semi-transparent shapes on top. Usually I only use very few base colors and 1-2 shadow colors. In combination with Inkscape's auto-palette, colors can easily be adjusted afterwards.. which I happen to do a lot!
Not sure about screen blending though... Either the effect of this mode isn't as obvious as multiply's or I'm simply too dumb to understand what this is actually good for ^^; Haha.. stupid me...

Multiply is also handy for preserving the lineart, too. Wow, you achieve a lot of tonal variety for the few colors you use. :D But I do admit, I adjust all my Inkscape drawings in Gimp for the colors. It'd be nice if it were easier to do in Inkscape.
Screen is actually like a reverse multiply, it makes things lighter, it can be used for highlights.
I wished Inkscape had more blend modes, people seem to use Overlay a lot in Photoshop to create more tonal variety, and a Color mode should be handy if you want to start with black and white first...

I put my lineart on a layer above everything else. This already preserves it from being obscured by something else.
And there are means of adjusting colors and stuff. Have you checked the filters and/or extensions? I have only played around a bit with some of these yet, nothing serious though. But maybe there you'll already find what you're looking for.

Inkscape does have color adjustment but... it's just easier to increase contrast a bit or decrease saturation on the whole picture rather than selecting all the objects. So, export -> adjusting in Gimp is kind of easier than selecting everything and adjusting in Inkscape, at least I think it is. Still, I really should play around more with filters and extensions. :D

Ever tried using the auto-palette? Simply assign auto-palette colors to one or many objects' fill/stroke. And later on you simply adjust the palette color. No need to pick every single object. This is, of course, not as convenient as adjusting contrast or whatever in the entire image.. but it's still a neat feature. Personally, I prefer this way, since I want most if not all the work done in the vector file and keep "external" adjustments on an exported bitmap as little as possible.

Yeah yeah, nature is playing funny games with some people. Ears too big, legs too thin or, in this case, arms too tiny to cover the entire chest. Life can be unfair :D
Thanks for the funny comment... and also: glad you're still alive. Haven't heard or seen anything from you in quite a while ;D

Over half a year since you wrote that reply, and first now I notice it! Sorry, man! Not logging in very often, and not quite used to the "new" notification system. :P

Still alive though, working on some stuff now and then. Mostly stuff that takes way too much time and is never finished! ;)

Good to see you're still going strong, though! :)

Stuff that doesn't get finished, huh? Yeah, I know that.. I've got too many things lying around, waiting for my attention. Hell, even if the day had 48 hours it still wouldn't be enough time..

Talk to you again in six months, eh :D

Yeah, I've heard this a couple of times before. I suppose it's mostly because of the socket-type of "backgrounds" I like to draw... Who knows, maybe one fine day I'll get a chance to get something done ;D

Nostale? Nie gehört... was daran liegen könnte, dass ich mit Online-Games überhaupt nix am Hut hab ^^;

Wie lange? Ziemlich lange... Sorry, genaue Angaben kann ich nicht machen. Ist aber schon eine höhere zweistellige Stundenzahl. Vektor + Mouse + meine eigene Langsamkeit = Zeitfresser Deluxe ;D Danke für die netten Worte!
