Inkscape Detailed by Chromakode Inkscape Detailed by Chromakode
Here's a detailed interpretation of the Inkscape logo. With the new possibilities of the blur feature, I wanted to take a shot at some (loose) realism.

SVG Source File.

This is an entry in the Inkscape 0.45 About Screen Contest.

Go Inkscape!! Love that thing! *tries to squeeze Inkscape software and fails. 'Cos it's well _software_, duh!* Like the drawing, it's hard to do realistic stuff with vectors. For me it's hard to do even completely not-realistic stuff >.<;; the face on my avatar was made with Inkscape and a notebook pad (no mouse here T-T)

I know how you feel, lol. I didn't know about it until something like twelve hours after the pic was chosen....

I know how you feel there. I discovered the announcement that our main man Bryce was giving a presentation about Inkscape at Portland State University just days after I had visited the campus. I was so bummed.

Sometimes you have to just take it in stride, and make super super advance plans to dominate next time ;D

What type-face is does the "Draw Freely" come from?

I really like it.

The font is the previously "official" branding font for use with the Inkscape logo. Unfortunately, after posting this screen, I discovered it was nonfree. Back when I snarfed it, I recall it was a link to a site with the ttf listed on it -- however sometime since it seems that it was discovered that this was a commercial font, and the links were updated to their commercial ($25) offering. :(

You'd most certainly have had my vote, if I'd known about the competition sooner (I might even have entered myself).
The visible nodes tool on the side of the mountain is a great indication of what Inkscape is capable of well done, and commiserations :)
Hey, there's always 0.46 to make splashes for ;)

Thanks man :)

I've always liked the look of showing the underpinnings of the tools used in art programs... though perhaps you haven't seen the competition!

I look forward to your entry for 0.46 ;)

Awesome, Max. That would make a really cool logo for a mountain resort (has snowboarding on the brain).

wow, haven't heard from you in ages. Although i haven't been particularly active either. How have you been.

Yes yes, it is great to hear from you vozzz! I had to take a break from dA, as I wasn't particularly happy with the leadership or the flux with the rights to our arts and community here. The Inkscapers contest was too tempting to resist. :D

I've been going through your gallery lately to see what you've been up to -- great stuff! :)

Thanks. I dunno, i never only ever created stuff for fun, so i don't really care too much about the rights and stuff. And leadership... well i guess if they got rid of all those people who draw anime on paper and upload it, that would be nice, but otherwise i don't mind.

the font of draw freely is not embedded in the svg file. i suggest you to convert it to paths.

The best suggestion for now :) very good chromakode!

Good point andremarcel... thanks for pointing that out. I have changed the link to a version with flattened fonts. Thanks for your feedback! :D

Wicked indeed! Besides a very slight outer glow and drop shadow (I had to look for it), where is blur prominently used?

:iconchromakode:
Chromakode Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2006
There is a subtle blur to shade the bottom bit of the logo (over the lighter gray edges) and as you mentioned the glow over the snow and slight drop shadowing. I also blurred the darker accent to the paint effect, above the yellow logotype. I am pleased you had to look for the drop shadow because for the realistic style to work the effects should blend together as a whole. My personal goal for this image was to use blur in ways that are not obvious to the eye, but add a 'pop' to images in ways that weren't possible before. :)
