Inkscape Tutorial

3 posts in this topic

Before you start designing decals we must cover the basics of Inkscape.

-The Draw Bezier and Straight Lines


After selecting this tool you want to left click to create a node and it'll take a couple nodes to create a rough outline of your shape. You may notice a red line this is to help you create your desired shape.

-Edit Paths by Nodes


Will help you refine your rough outline into the desired shape. Simply click Edit paths by nodes then select your outline and push or pull a line segment till it's correct.



To move nodes around simply click edit paths by nodes. Select your outline,left click and hold on a node then drag your line.

-Stroke Style


Select the paint brush located on the top tool. A window should open and select stroke style. Make sure to click on your line. Topically 2.000 and 3.000 PX are the stranded line widths I use for all my decals.

-Tools before we start.

Thanks for the tutorial, Dutch! I think the most helpful part of this was the color guide. It is very hard to try to find the exact Lego shade of color.
