Have you ever seen these cute origami-style icons where it looks like the icon is kind-of created from folded paper? Achieving this style is pretty easy using basic tools, and Edwin over at Inkscape Garden walks you through how to draw a simple cartoon lion icon using Inkscape. The steps are pretty easy to follow, but a basic knowledge of Inkscape tools like the path tool and grids will be needed to easily follow this tutorial.

As a bonus, there is also a neat set of 9 animals – including the cute lion in the tutorial above – available for download from Open Clip Art.
