I’ve been messing with inkscape, a vector-graphics (SVG) drawing program. its a lot of fun!
This took me just a few minutes to make, and the best part is that its made of shapes and gradients. I can edit the shine and lighting, resize the whole thing, or change the text inside it with just a few clicks.
Of course, although I have technique, I have no style to go with it… the ability to hammer and saw doesn’t make you a carpenter.
