In this video tutorial we will be looking at how to illustrate simple feathered wings in Inkscape.
I have used Inkscape in this video tutorial but you should be able to adopt a similar process in Adobe Illustrator or Corel Draw as only basic Bezier paths were used.
Please share your questions and suggestions below.
In this video tutorial, we’ll look at how to create a Server Box illustration. This will be done in Isometric view in Inkscape. Check out the video tutorial on Setting up Isometric Grid in Inkscape if you need that information in detail.
Please share your suggestions and questions in the comments section below.
In this tutorial, we would do a walkthrough of illustrating a vector artwork of a peacock. Much of the techniques mentioned in the other peacock tutorials here would be used.
I used GIMP to do a rough work, but you can use any other tool that you find comfortable sketching. See Drawing A Standing Peacock for a detailed tutorial.
After we get the form of the peacock, a little work on the details is done to get the idea of how much detail we want to put into the vector artwork in the end.
At this point in time, I import the PNG file into Inkscape and get the rough outline form of the peacock. If you had done the sketch/lineart on paper, you can scan it in using a scanner and import into Inkscpae.
Make further shapes, to block out the different areas and depth using the lineart as a guide. Take extra care to layer them from back to front. A little bit of planning goes a long way when the amount of detailing is going to be quite complex.
