I have been on some reorganizing tasks here at KalaaLog.com. Most of it revolves around the tutorials posted here.
Checking the site statistics, it looks like there are two tutorials that have a lot of visits, mostly due to other sites linking to the tutorials. The top tutorial posts have been in both the vector as well as digital painting topics.
- Illustrate Hibiscus Flower
- Painting A Peacock
Most notable site is the Inkscape Tutorials blog, that regularly links to vector or illustration related tutorials here. Thanks Ryan, for the link love. I urge those interested in Inkscape to have a look at that blog – it regularly posts links to great Inkscape related tutorials.
The tutorial index page (the link the navigation bar above), has been updated to link to all the different tutorials posted here. I have tried to organize it under broad categories like illustration, painting and general sketching tutorials. From the last update, 40 new links have been added to the lists.
As can be seen on the tutorials page, the number of tutorials has grown quite large. It might soon be harder to search for a specific set of tutorials. This is the reason, and also due to reader request, I went through each and every tutorial posted here and tagged them as either ‘vector’ or ‘painting’, and also as either ‘beginner’, ‘intermediate’, or ‘advanced’. You can browse the tutorials using the tag cloud (on the right hand sidebar), or by directly putting in /tag at the end of http://kalaalog.com URL. If you are adventurous, then you can use plus (+) and comma (-) to apply AND or OR respectively.
Here are some examples:
The tags, categories and the search should make it easier to zero in on a particular tutorial. But I am still trying to find some easier way to explore the tutorials. It may involve making use of external tagging/bookmarking services like del.icio.us or ma.gnolia.com so that readers can themselves tag it as they see fit.
