Fantasy Bird – WIP

Fantasy bird – Inkscape. Ulla Hennig January 2014

First of all: I wish you a Happy, healthy, creative and productive New Year!

After having done some acrylic painting (still have one painting to be finished) I decided to do a bit of Inkscape work in order not to forget how the program works… I did a rough sketch with a pencil first and then went over the sketch with a fineliner.

Then I scanned the drawing into Inkscape and began with to vectorize it on a second layer. As you can see I am separating the drawing into single shapes – one for the head, one for the beak, one for the rump and so on. This makes changes and colouring easier.

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.
