Inkscape Demo Gouache Oil Painting filters compared

#inkscape #comparison #gouache #oilpainting #filter

The Gouache filter in the Textures submenu still seems to be the most useful filter for digital painting in #inkscape

What i probably should do next is compare Inkscapes Gouache to Gimps Oilify ?

Qbist on Gimp

If you're looking to create strong #geometric patterns with #gimp you might consider experimenting with the #qbist #filter as a starting point.


Some hints : Combine filters Think about XY co-ordinates. Don't just pixelize or shift or oilify.

This is Rainbow Bridge one of my latest designs on https://www.redbubble.com/people/scholara

It started as an image generated by Qbist in Gimp.

If you saw the A on Paper post I was testing new effects and papers for this.

Share it with a Catholic or Protestant friend who practises a traditional Lent?

A on paper

#paper #texture #inkscape #filter #julievaux

This weeks experiment changing the colors just slighting and then adding just one filter to try to get an ink soaked into paper effect. It seems to work best if you change the color to a VERY dark brown!

I've taken the epaper oblong I created for the bottom layer and saved it at the bottom of the image for you to crop off and reuse. Again if you're looking for a paper effect combining Texture with Distort works with most colors in #inkscape

If you want a smoother texture you'll probably have to export to #gimp and do more edits.

Start in Inkscape though. I 've seen some small scale textures made in Gimp that work on web pages for banners or small areas but used for a complete a4 page or larger ...
