K.I.S.S. and Jokerman

Inkscape #jokerman #font #demo

What to do with all those ornamental Fonts that come with Windows 10?

Heres one demo of 2 simple edits

I am rather glad though there are few English words with J and F ? 
A bit more thought should have been given to the top cross bar in the J?

An example of the K.I.S.S. guideline

Copyright Julie Vaux 2017 

I stuck to three colors and just one filter for this design. Hopefully they have worked together to turn a standard Windows font into something stronger and more special.

Regarding the message: One keeps still seeing the insert adjective Lives Matter tag being used on twitter. Wanna fight xenophobia and racism and others forms of bigotry?

We all share ONE WORLD. Modern Genetics tells us we are all ONE RACE ALL HUMAN.

Raised Objects

#SVG #Inkscape #object #relief #filters #demo

Here's 5 examples of how Filters create 3d illusions in #inkscape

The Object in the upper left hand corner is a fairly basic polygon/star with Fill and Stroke.

I duplicated that and added Filters

The strongest effect is the Neon Bevel Filter but it makes the color pinker and the color changes using  the Relief Print from the BUMP submenu.

On the Bottom row :

Using a Linear Gradient on the stroke and not the Fill makes the object look tilted in Inkscape but NOT in the Google Chrome browser.

Dark Emboss shifts the colors towards Magenta 

I rather the effect of Thick Acrylic Filter Perhaps with a different color it could create an eroded rust effect?

I'm going to test this with Fill and Stroke set for the same colors to see what happens.

Have fun and create textures with Inkscape! 

Please consider supporting my experiments and demos via #patreon

so I have some wiring that needs repairs on top on the plumbing issues 
so your support will help spent on something practical not a luxury!

Asian Love heart

for those of you who are not on #DeviantArt I'm sharing this here too!

Yes that is the character for LOVE - AI 

This was made with #inkscape beofre being exported as PNG.

Sigh now that I'm seeing it in the web browser I can think of two other edits I could have made!

Making hearts from a Triangle

#inkscape #valentine #heart

Make a triangle  in #inkscape rounded or unrounded
 Fill with Red Blank out Stroke make the Object a path so you can use the Node tool.
 Add a few more Nodes  Edit curves with the handles.
The Heart of the Left is A Bevel Filter and the one on the right two combined filters to create a wet into wet paint like effect though one is a bit extreme if you want a more fabric effect test the other Texture filters?

Hope I've given you some useful ideas for Valentine Day digital crafts.
