Title: Draw this Simple Whimsical Robin
Post by: Laurianne on June 16, 2011, 06:29:06 AM
Here is a basic tutorial for anyone just learning to use Inkscape.  It will take you step by step through a simple drawing.

You can also download the SVG.

I left a comment on your website. I am going to try to draw my own bird following your instructions, but just in case, I will also download your file too.

Thanks, Carolyn.  If you do draw it, let me know if I left out any steps in the tutorial.  I wanted to write it in such a way that someone that was just learning could follow it.

I just completed your tutorial and it was lots of fun.  Cute robin.  I put him/her in my gallery.  :D

I liked it because:
1. There were procedures one could use elsewhere.
2. Directions were so clear and easy to understand.
3. You could do variations of the robin yet keep to the tut.

Can't wait to do some of your others.

It really is an art and gift to write a good tutorial.

Working circles no problem, but when it cam to working the pen and drawing the little stuff...having problems.  I'll keep working with it, especially if the laptop's not sitting in my lap!!!

I have never been able to do any thing other than play a game of cards with this thing sitting in my lap. LOL
