The Future of this Forum:

The Inkscape Project will open its first official forum, on the Inkscape website, this August (2019). (Address/link will be provided at that time.) When that happens, new registrations will no longer be allowed in this forum and Inkscape support will be provided in the new forum. This forum will still be open for a while, so that existing topics can be finished, and existing users can have access to their contents. But all potential new members should register on the Inkscape website, and post their questions in the new forum, starting in August. If you have any questions or comments, you can post them here.

Although I've been planning to put this forum in read-only mode, at the time of this transition, unfortunately, my personal circumstances have changed, and I won't be able to host this forum much longer. If anyone is interested in taking it over, please contact me.

Draw this Simple Whimsical Robin
« 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.

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

Butterfly, Somehow I don't quite believe you.  :roll:

Carolyn, I'm glad you like my little bird on the new site.
