Description

If you like to create  line art illustrations, or would like to learn how to digitize your drawings, this course is for you!

Inkscape offers a free and flexible vector graphics solution to every illustrator, but this course is all about creating line art. 

During this course:

  • We start with understanding how  tracing bitmap works, and how to trace your freehand drawings automatically to get the best results. 

  • Than we learn and understand  the Bezier tool and the path editor and create a geometric city illustration.

  • After this we practice these tools further  by vectorizing  a hand drawn sketch about a cute cartoon character.

  • Later, to achieve absolute  mastery with the Bezier tool, we turn a simple photo into a trendy one-line illustration!

  • And finally you will learn to design your own custom brushes and use them to create a free hand illustration in Inkscape!

If you want to digitize your line art, or draw vector illustrations from scratch, join  me today and learn these fundamental vector graphic tools!
