Inkscape Drawing Tutorial by BellaCielo Inkscape Drawing Tutorial by BellaCielo
FULL VIEW PLEASE!

The (hopefully) long-anticipated prequel of my Inkscape Cell Shading tutorial [link] This tut covers anime style drawing, but I'm sure cartoon-style artists will find some use for it too.

As it turns out, directly drawing is Inkscape isn't as tough as you'd think if you work from the body up (and don't just try to draw the clothing directly).

And since it's always easier to comprehend an idea when you have an actual example to look at and dissect, I'm also posting the (shaded) SVG of the image in this tutorial:

Mac System 9-tan

For rules regarding the use of this image, see the original deviation.

Please feel free to ask questions or comments about this tutorial, and check out my other tuts (including my cell-shading guide) in my Tutorial Gallery

fufufu! yep, I haven't drawn a pen-and-paper sketch for my drawings in over 2.5 years, so I can definitely testify to the effectiveness of drawing Inkscape images from scratch. ^___^b

This is a really awesome tutorial and a good follow-up/compliment to the NetBSD one you did a while back ago. Except now you A) are using 0.47 [so hopefully you've checked out Live Path Effects and Filters already], and B) have the OSX dockbar in all your screenshots, lol. ^.^
