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.
