I really love how you did the coloring and the different shading with use of gradients. I finished outlining a character (that I scanned in) using only the Bezier tool in Inkscape. I was just curious if you just take a shape that's colored, such as a circle, and shape/adjust over the pants outline?
Inkscape makes coloring look so easy, but when I try to color my character's pants, it only colors the pants half way. I've tried adjusting the threshold for the paint bucket, even adjusted the "Grow/Shrink By" and "Close Gaps" section but nothing seems to work (fill and stroke does half too). It works out great filling in a simple square or circle. I can't really find out what it is I'm doing wrong. If I need to take a colored shape and adjust it to the shape of the pants I outlined, that's totally fine. I'm just confused about whether or not an object that's grouped can be filled. Everything's closed so there are no openings.. I've also made sure to not have a stroke color when I fill an area on the pants, but not matter how much I zoom in to keep filling a spot, there's always a white line that gets thinner each time I try to fill it.
I'm using version .48 and so I don't know if it's just me or if it's a bug/glitch in Inkscape that was fixed. I read where people had this problem, but I don't know if it's in relation to what I'm dealing with or not because it dealt with the paint bucket being a new add on to Inkscape. All I want to do is color my character, is that to much to ask!
XD Mr. microUgly sir, because you are a Inkscape color guru, would you happen to know what would cause this? I would be glad to read a tutorial of how to fix my problem, but I'm having trouble narrowing it down to why it's doing what it's doing.
Also, if anyone else knows what I'm talking about, please do let me know. I'd reallllllly love to color my character.
Thanks to anyone in advance for their time and patience in reading my comment!
