Here is another tutorial from shmoggo.com on creating a logo using inkscape:
Here is an awesome tutorial from Aaron Nieze at the Shmoggo Blog. In this short tutorial, Aaron covers an array of inkscape Basics while creating a vector based company logo.
Ever wondered how to quickly create a block arrow with inkscape? This quick tutorial shows you how!
Here is another great tutorial from Josh over at Tucson Labs. In this tutorial, Josh walks you through designing and exporting a webpage layout with inkscape.
Here is a tutorial to create a vector design in a street art / graffiti style. This tutorial does not go into much detail on each of the steps, is more of a demonstration of the workflow the artist used to create the design. Well worth a look for intermediate and advanced Inkscape users.
Here is a quick how-to outlining the process to create custom inkscape SVG filters to style text. The tutorial covers the procedure to create a filter for text with a shadow, slightly inset text and raised, super glossy text. The tutorial also has a downloadable SVG so you can open up the image in Inkscape and play with the filters yourself.
Here is a neat tutorial showing how to create an urban design by layering different types of vector elements. In this tutorial, you first create a range of concentric circle stamps (or “brushes”), and layer them on top of different coloured cloud silhouettes. Finally, you create a whole bunch of swirls using the spiro curve and path effects.
One of the most frequently asked questions from Inkscape users is “how do i crop an image or object?” The Clipping feature is by far the easiest and most versatile way to crop vector or bitmap/raster objects in Inkscape. This FAQ provides you with a step by step tutorial covering the basics of clipping.
Let’s start with our little monster friend that i downloaded from the Open Clip Art Library:
Alexandre Prokoudine [blog | twitter] covers creating layer effects with Inkscape. In this detailed article, Alexandre talks you through hand-editing the SVG XML in inkscape to apply filter effects (e.g. Gaussian blur) on whole layer (rather than on an object or group level). Note that to achieve this behaviour, you will be diving deep into inkscape SVG internals, so this tutorial is recommended for advanced inkscape users.
Here is another tutorial from libregraphicsworld describing how it illustrate an eye in the anime style.
Here is a set of free cartoon animal clipart that can be used for anything. All the images in this set are totally free can be used for any purpose and do not have any watermarks that will stop you from using them anywhere!
These cute animals are available over at the Open Clip Art Library. There are many more in this style than in the sample below, so head past the break for the entire list of animals in this set. As with all the artwork in the Open Clip Art Library, these SVGs are Public Domain, so you can do pretty much anything with them!

The gradient tool in Inkscape is a powerful feature that allows artists to add and edit linear and radial colour gradients on-canvas. Gradients in vector graphics provide the ability to provide the illusion of depth and light to otherwise flat images. When combined with the blur filter, gradients can be used to create photo-realistic vector images.
However, having gradients behave strangely when moving or resizing an object is a common issue encountered by Inkscape users.
Here is a another fun little tutorial from McKay Christensen showing how to create a neat texture effects using Inkscape. The awesome thing about this tutorial is that it is 100% scalable vector graphics (SVG), there is not a bitmap texture in sight! McKay achieves this by using SVG filters. To finish it off, he shows you how to put a rough paper texture over some text, and give it a drop shadow. This tutorial is a great introduction into the use of the filters dialog in inkscape.
Here is a tutorial to create shattered and smashed text using the vector graphics appliation, Inkscape. I first posted this tutorial on my personal blog a few years ago. This version is slightly refreshed, but is pretty much the same tutorial that i first published.
