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.

Spider Web
« on: April 19, 2012, 09:20:09 PM »
I was wasting time playing in Inkscape and started testing what would happen when different buttons were pressed. By accident I found an easy way to draw a spider web. My instructions are below. I can make a video if anyone would like to see how it is done.

Sorry for the heavy watermarking. I am getting a bit tired of hearing tutorials are reposted on other forums. At least now they will have to re-write their own instructions or acknowledge the source of the images. I tried to make them light or small so it will not use to much ink if you print the steps.

Here is another method to create a spider web. This time I show how you can use guidelines. If you ensure snap to guidelines is turned on  it is relatively easy to draw a web using the bezier tool.

I will start by sharing the guideline template that I set up to use.

Following are the steps I used to draw a spider web. Feel free to experiment and change it to suit your own project.
Please do not upload the tutorial to any other forum, blog or website.

What would a spider web be without a spider? Here is one my daughter drew from a photo of a huntsman spider. If you are planning to cut a small spider do not use the one with the extra cut out bits as those cuts will be too small to see.
