Since I've been using Inkscape for all my school work, I wanted to try this great application at "professional" design field. This is just part of the work that has been done entirely in Inkscape.
When working on complex projects with thousands of objects, it can be quite a chore to efficiently manage the contents of the document. One difficulty may be finding those pesky objects that share the same color as the document background. Another more common difficulty presented is managing layers in an intuitive way. As shown here in this screenshot by ScislaC, the Outline display mode reveals hundreds of objects layered behind foreground objects throughout his piece Gaze. You should also take note of our handy new Layers Dialog that helps ease the workflow of organizing such complex projects. To see the normal view mode of this piece you can click here for a comparison.
An entirely new way of manipulating paths in Node tool is added in this version: Node sculpting by Alt+dragging in Node tool. For example, if you select several nodes on a straight line and Alt+drag the middle selected node, the path will bend into a smooth bell-like curve. Moreover, node sculpting is sensitive to pressure of your tablet pen. Things like making a calligraphic stroke narrower in one place and wider in another, or extending the ear or flattening the nose of a head, or any other reshaping of complex paths - all this is now much faster and more natural to do using sculpting.
This screenshot demonstrates what can be done with the Calligraphy Tool and a mouse. Two major enhancements to the Calligraphy tool in this new release of Inkscape are the Tremor variable and fixed brush sizes. Tremor is used to create more natural looking strokes by adding a variable amount unevenness to brush strokes. Unlike previous releases of Inkscape, the Calligraphy Tool is no longer dependent on the zoom level of the canvas, it is now possible to use fixed brush sizes.
This is our new Layers dialog where you can view the layers of your drawing, as well as lock/unlock and hide/unhide them. Inkscape's layers can be hierarchical, so this dialog is not just a list but a tree whose branches can be expanded or collapsed. This map of Lithuania was created by Andrius Ramanauskas entirely in Inkscape.
The L-system effect (Effects > Render > L-system) is a powerful way of creating all sorts of repetitive, recursive, and plant-like shapes and patterns. Using a simple graphic language, you specify the initial axiom and one or more recursive rules or transforming it, as well as the maximum level of recursion. In Inkscape 0.44, it is possible to specify different angles for turning left and right, as well as to randomize the angles and the length of step.
One of the benefits of working with vectors is the ability to non-destructively modify the appearance of objects. In our new release we have added support for two new features to do just that. As shown in this screenshot by ScislaC, we have both Clipped and Masked objects. The bat that is selected is a complete shape that normally would be overlapping with her other leg, however, it has an SVG clipPath applied to it to constrain the visibility to within the intended boundaries. On the neck and chest area you can also see shadows that were masked to make them semi-transparent for smooth blending. As you will notice, we have provided examples of those sections without the clipping and masking for comparison.
