In the second half of Thursdays workshop we used Inkscape. It reminded me of Microsoft Paint which to my surprise is still around(!). The layout was extremely basic and lacked creativity. Saying this; it was incredibly easy to use although the apple shortcuts didn’t work on this programme because it isn’t Adobe. This was actually okay with me because I have never liked using apple computer software as I’m so used to windows.
My lecturer showed us how to make a doll like figure using simple shapes and tools provided. We created curves in the lines and made each eyelash individually. I found it quite time consuming but having looked at other examples from Google Images, the more complex images looked quite fun and easy to produce. We had homework set to create our own doll from using either Inkscape or Adobe Illustrator.
I’m still yet to decide which programme I preferred working with as they were both rather simple and easy to pick up on. My next post on this topic will be the homework set. Which programme do you prefer to use and why?
