What do you think about Inkscape?
Incredible. Compared to other solutions out there that cost so much time and money to implement. Most things can be accomplished in Inkscape with little fuss, and sometimes a bit of research. It is incredibly powerful and definitely competes with the leading commercial vector based applications.
Can you give us a Hot Tip for using Inkscape?
Use a tablet! If you regularly use applications for sketching, and you want a nice clean 'inked' look. go Vector instead of raster, the finished product resembles inked paper perfectly. Also, I found because of all of my years with other applications, I was so used to doing things 'their' way. Initially this frustrated me about Inkscape.. However I discovered the IRC channel and your questions are answered in a few seconds. Try to find a community like that with a commercial app where you can actually talk to a developer!
How did you do it?
Wacom tablet and a lot of time and patience. I built up the structure of the carriage with a line tool and a mouse, to get the perspective, then I just went nuts with the tablet and the calligraphy tool. To make the coloured in items more 'gritty' I used Ctrl+L which simplifies lines.. This not only helped produce the overall effect, but also reduced the file size.
Do you give us permission to use this to promote Inkscape?
Sure thing, this was made solely for this wiki page. Id never completed a full sketch in Inkscape before, so I thought with this wiki page going up I would submit something. As this was done specifically for this purpose, its basically yours anyway.
