Students: 7404, Price: Paid
Welcome to my inkscape tutorial!
Are you a creative person?
Would you like to be able to create digital designs?
Are you creating your website, blog , or presentations and would like to create nice illustrations to support your material?
If you answered yes to any of those questions this course is for you. This course is for any absolute design beginner interested in creating their own design using vector art. In this course you will learn all fundamental tools and concepts that you need to start creating illustration. Although it is not a complete course where you learn every possible form of design, it will give you a very solid base to start, and gain the confidence and excitement to move to more advanced concepts.
The reason I created this course is that when I start learning design, I felt it was a really wide topic. Most of the tutorials I found will teach you so much theory and all possible tools in different applications so there is so much to learn that it is easy to get discouraged. After 4 years going from one tutorial to another, I realised just using the basic tools, you can actually achieve really nice results, so why not teaching that first?
What will you learn?
Create regular and custom shapes
Organise your illustration in layers
Overview of design principles and colour theory
Practice: Create simple illustrations
Using bezier curves and pencil tool
Using gradients and filters
Practice: Create two illustrations from zero
How to sell your illustrations
Why is this course different?
Relevant: I will teach what you need to get started really quickly
Practical: Examples to gain confidence
Monetise: I will show you how you can sell your illustrations
I hope you are excited about starting your Vector Design journey with Inkscape, and I am looking forward to seeing you in the course!

The course is teaching everything one should know to work efficiently with the free and open source graphic design program Inkscape. As a free program, there are plenty of short tutorials about Inkscape, but not a comprehensive video tutorial like this was made before! These lessons are not for solving individual tasks (like how to create a banner, how to draw a fish etc.) but rather going through all the tools one can need to understand and use Inkscape on an amateur or even professional level! Apart from sharing the tools, I also give my tricks and tips I developed myself as a designer working with Inkscape for years.
There are 30 lectures of varying length, and .svg files are provided where needed, so students can learn and experiment. This is how the course is built up:
- In the first set of lectures we go through the basic tools, and understand how Inkscape works.
- Then the more complex tools follow, and we create more elaborate designs.
- Then I'm sharing some illustration tips and tricks, that will make for clever and outstanding illustration.
- And in the final lessons we create a Christmas card together, using all the tools and knowledge acquired during the course.

In this course you'll learn everything you need to know to create the game art for your 2d platformer. And all by using the fantastic free, open source vector illustration software Inkscape.
We'll be using vector graphics and the mouse (no need for tablets) to create beautiful, HD graphics, in the style that you often see in many modern, 2d cartoony cellphone games but also in some PC games as well.
But the great thing is that you don't have to be an artist to take this course!. We'll start from the ground up, with a mini-course on how to use the program (Inkscape) for illustration, then we'll delve into more specific game art techniques, finally we'll start making the assets of our 2d platformer one by one, ranging from items to game characters. And once we have everything we need, we'll assemble everything into a mockup illustration (a fake screenshot).
Here are a few of the things this course deals with:
Designing and drawing attractive assets for a 2d platformer using vectors
Inkscape for illustration
Tools, methods and techniques for game art and general vector illustration
Basic character design
Basic background design
Working with tileable assets in Inkscape

they function independently, and in conjunction with other tools, bars, and
panels. We will also customize the Inkscape page, learn to access, adjust
and collapse frequently used panels, take a look at guidelines, grids, and
the canvas itself. We will discuss the color palette, examine each of the
command bar icons, as we basically walk through the entire interface tool
by tool and bar by bar.
By the end of this 4+ hour course, you will have the knowledge to navigate the
Inkscape editor and create with confidence. Congratulations!

What makes a good game?
A good game needs a great story. It needs nice overall graphics. Engaging gameplay.
And it also needs well designed characters!
This course is exactly about that! When you are developing your own game, and you are not a designer, you will find creating a hero for your game challenging!
During the course we learn
the theory of character design
what makes a good character
my 6 step character design method
to create a character sheet
to prepare our characters for animation
to animate our characters
And we will do all this in Inkscape, this epic free software! It is a very versatile vector tool, which makes designing characters much more easier and faster!
Apart of the above, I will share character blueprints with you! These are showing how I design a character with Inkscape from scratch. We practice different skills with each character. We create character sheet from one, and basic animation from the other.
The characters we will create:
a simple and cute robot character - great for kids
a black ninja warrior - simple and smooth
a heavy rpg warrior - a real tank!
a fantasy skeleton warrior - cute but deadly
NEW! a warrior girl - ready to fight!
Your task will be to practice and create character sheet and basic animation for all the characters, or your very own game hero/enemy!
I will also share tips and tricks in the course. In these short lessons I usually want to help you to work faster and create better designed figures.
Mind that this is only the first version of the course! I will add several new character blueprints - and listen to the need of my students - and I will keep the course updated.
I don't want to talk about myself. If you want to know me better, read my instructor bio. But I can tell you one thing: I am here to teach. When you ask me, I will help and will find a solution to your problem the best I can!

A good game needs great graphics, nice music and cool characters
- and of course a well designed game user interface!
I created this course to help the indie developer community to create clean and engaging UI designs for their games. Even if you are not a designer, you can just download this free software, and follow my course! :)
During the course we will use the amazing open-source software Inkscape. Inkscape is a vector graphical software, which makes it perfect for 2D game element design.
During the course we will learn the theory of game UI design, and we will create:
several icons and icon sets
buttons and menus in various styles
2 versions of UI design for a fantasy game,
2 versions of UI for a space shooter,
and one version for a casual gem stone game
We will also draw an icon set for a ninja game - that lesson is a free preview, check it out!
Although this is a beginner game UI course, a basic Inkscape knowledge is good to have. I stop and explain every single step I make, but you have to work on your own confidence and skill level in Inkscape.
Important: We will create all the buttons and icons during the course, however, recreating the game screens shown in the preview and used as a base to design on during the lectures are NOT part of this course!
Also, this is a UI course, we are not working on the UX part of he design.

Students: 1201, Price: $49.99
Students: 1201, Price: Paid
This course gives you the best of both worlds - thorough step-by-step instruction on Inkscape's tools and features as well as hands-on, practical assignments for you to complete. The progressive assignments help you master the concepts taught in the video lessons.
The course culminates with a major project - the creation of a colorful layout for a fictional board game. This project is approached one element at a time with students creating their own copy of the design.
While the pen and node tools are the most important to master, as they are the heart of vector graphics; every tool in the Inkscape toolbar is covered in this course. Additional lessons explain the most commonly used operations such as: path operations, bitmap tracing, cloning, tiled clones, clipping, masking, patterns, offsets, and live path effects. Several filters and extensions are demonstrated as well.
If GIMP is the Photoshop of free software, then Inkscape is the free equivalent of Adobe Illustrator. Inkscape was designed to create scalable vector graphics. These images may be used for print, web design, social media, game characters, animation frames, and so forth.
The skills acquired learning Inkscape will be useful even if you eventually transition to another vector graphics program such as Adobe Illustrator or Corel Draw. The core functionality of all these programs is quite similar.
Inkscape works on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux, and it's free. The course videos use version 0.92 of the software, but if you have a prior or more recent version, you should be fine. Inkscape is very slow to make significant changes. The basic interface has remained the same for many years.
Updated 05/2020 to include information about the new version, Inkscape 1. The current videos are still relevant. Inkscape changes very slowly, and the interface remains nearly identical in version 1.

Are you working on your own game? Or want to learn logo design in an structured but fun way?
This course is for you!
After creating many courses on game art design, students told me that designing a game logo is a task it s hard to undertake.
They think they lack two things: the creativity for logo design, and the technical skills to create a professional looking logo.
Creativity is not a magical thing! It is not made by unicorns, it is created during the design process! We all have ideas we just have to get them out of our heads! This is what I actually cover in the first section of the course, and how we go through all the lessons of designing various logos.
And when we have the basics, we will build those technical skills as well! I will tell you every trick I use and every button I push during the course, and show you how Inkscape will help you to create an awesome logo for your game!
And what will we create?
Here are the logos we design together:
- Logo for a racing game
- A dark horror logo
- A logical puzzle game logo
- A cute candy-cartoon logo
- A fantasy game logo with 3D looking text
- A space game logo using negative space (pun intended)
- And a grunge zombie game logo with a huge splatter of blood!
In later updates: game app icon designs and more logos on demand!
So get the course today and make your own game logo that makes your game visible and helps you sell! :)
Am I too fast? Am I too slow? Have any questions? Don't hesitate to ask, I am here to teach you logo design!

have you ever wanted to create digital illustrations effortlessly?
well, you're in the right place, I made this course so everyone will be able to do that, fast easy, and with a free software.
don't get me wrong, I love illustrator, but I don't know why I find Inkscape to be more intuitive and easy, the pen tool is easier and for some unexplained reason, it's my new workflow.
it's so easy and fast to get into anyone can do it (with time and patience).
even without my course, but my course makes the learning process even faster.
cant buy it? no problem, the first part will always be free, and it's all you need really.
the other parts of the course are just extra stuff to expand your skill with variations of different illustration styles, for those who want to go in-depth.
all the course parts use the skills and techniques I teach in the first part of the course.
so try going through the first part of the course and if you like it (and I'm sure you will) then you can buy it and get the rest of the more specific in-depth lessons.
anything you will learn, even from the free part is invaluable, you can use it for any design, logos, badges, shirts print, and almost anything you can dream to design.
my workflow is the easiest and fastest workflow you can find.
whatever your goals are you want this knowledge and skill in your arsenal, it might save you money or make you money, either way, it's worth your time.
and in the future I will add more parts to this course, to add more to the library of digital illustrations you know to make.
