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.

Since there haven't been any new messages for so long, and no one has ever replied to this message of mine I'm considering closing this forum entirely, in approx 6 months. If anyone has any comments about that, please feel free to post them.

Using Linear Gradient to Create a Twilight Background
« on: April 02, 2012, 09:13:30 PM »
I've been playing around more with gradients in Inkscape. There is no end to what can be done and I am continually learning new stuff. Here is a link to another tutorial I put together on this subject. <!-- m -->http://www.eyedrawit.com/?page_id=1318<!-- m --> The tutorial will show you how to create a background like the one in the illustration below.

Stunning image and the gradient really highlights the silhouettes.

Thank you Laurianne, I finally GET stops.  I've seen a lot of videos but they go too fast so your nice written one and the pictures did it for me.

You'll see more of my paintings using linear gradients!!!

PapaSue,

I'm glad you found it helpful. Sometimes I have trouble learning from videos as well. I need something "static" that I can look at long enough to process the info!   ;)

I also prefer written tutorials and yours are so easy to follow.
Even though I do make videos I never watch them and always return to my written instructions when I forget something.
