The Future of this Forum:

The Inkscape Project opened its first official forum on its website this month (August 2019). https://inkscape.org/forums/ In an effort to combine all the different forums into one, this forum will no longer be accepting new members or new messages. However, it will remain open for a little while, for existing members, to have access to their contents, if they need them.

Any potential new members should register on the new forum, and post their message there. There is a special board for questions about using Inkscape for cutting machines (of all kinds). (https://inkscape.org/forums/cutplot/)

If you have any questions or comments (and you're an existing member) 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. I'm not sure about the time frame. It could be as soon as the end of 2019, or as long as a year from now. If anyone is interested in taking it over, please contact me.

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.

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.
