Inkscape Learning resources

Post by Chris Aguilar » Mon Sep 25, 2017 8:19 pm

I'm creating this thread to gather what I consider to be quality learning/tutorial resources for Inkscape (the best damn free vector illustration program out there). Which I, ahem, also use to create and update my vector card set.

The following is just a rough assemblage to hold the data until I can put it on a prettier page.

OFFICIAL WEBSITE AND DOWNLOADS
-------------

https://inkscape.org - The official Website
https://inkscape.org/en/release/0.92.2/ - Current version Download page

Inkscape is also available via the Windows 10 built in app store.

-------------

OFFICIAL BEGINNERS TUTORIALS:

https://inkscape.org/en/learn/

-------------

ONLINE BOOK

Inkscape: Guide to a Vector Drawing Program - This is a really excellent full manual. I use this all the time as a reference.

----

HOW TO'S

Export your vectors to a raster format (bitmap, .png)

Nearly done with all the color variants of the faces.

Also created a variant of the main (highest quality) back.
