Inkscape cell-shading tutorial by BellaCielo Inkscape cell-shading tutorial by BellaCielo
FULL VIEW PLEASE, THANKS!

I woke up this morning and felt like I had to do a tutorial... so here it is, my first Inkscape tutorial. Using the lovely NetBSD-tan as our model. ^^

I chose to write about (anime-style) cell shading since a lot of people are a bit apprehensive about doing shading in Inkscape. It's really no more difficult or logical than raster shading (and I certainly know it's more easy for me). 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 original SVG of the image in this tutorial:

NetBSD-tan

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

Please feel free to ask questions or comments about this tutorial. Thanks. ^_^

Thanks! This is exactly what I needed. Highlighting is seriously much faster than shading later. Thanks for posting the SVG too!
