Antelope – another Inkscape Piece

Antelope. Done with Inkscape by Ulla Hennig I July 2011

I must admit, I had a reference photo for this piece. But it is still a challenge (at least for me) to create something in Inkscape out of a photo. I don’t want to reproduce a realistic copy, and with vector graphics you can’t do that anyhow. In Photoshop, you can paint digitally, but in a vector software like Inkscape you cannot.

So the challenge is to catch the essence of the animal, and I think I managed to do that. Still, it is has too much of a silhouette for me at that stage. I will try to make it more threedimensional by adding shadows and hightlights.

About Ulla Hennig

I live and work in Berlin. Taking photos is one of my hobbies, and writing is one of my hobbies, too. So I decided not only to show some of my pictures here but also present some of the thought which came wth the pictures.
