Private Dancer - Red Monika by microUgly Private Dancer - Red Monika by microUgly
Vector of *King-Cheetah's Dancer Red Monika.

This was created using Inkscape 0.44. I'm floored by the power of this application. My first impression was that it was rather simple, but I couldn't not have been more wrong. If you like you can get the SVGZ file here. Please send me a note if you want to edit and release a version of it.

You can see some snapshots of the drawing as it progressed here.

Oh, I may create a 'work safe' version if anyone is interested.

How long it took?

Too long :) I don't really remember now. I'm pretty slow so it was probably 10 or 15 hours--maybe more. It's not the drawing that takes me time (since someone else drew it), it's the choices. I'll spend hours tweaking colours or changing how I light the figure.

This is amazing.. I've been using Inkscape since July of '08 and I can't even get anywhere close to this.

Thanks, I'm glad you like it :) July 08 isn't so long to have been using Inkscape. This drawing wasn't that complicated in terms of having to know Inkscape well. It just made good use of gradients.

As well you should be.

Did I say it'd make a great wallpaper?

I intentially made it suitable for use as a wallpaper. You'll probably need to scale it down for your sized monitor

better than photoshop?

Photoshop and Inkscape are apples and oranges. Photoshop is primarily raster/bitmap whilst Inkscape is vector. You could compare Inkscape to Illustrator and I would say it does a lot of things better but lacks some features artists may find essential.

Hmm interesting, cause for a while now I've been trying to figure out which of the graphics related programs I should pick up, but I'm having difficulty figuring out which is better suited to a less than beginner like myself, any recommendations?

It really depends on what art style you are looking to produce.

If you're looking for something to do more traditional drawing with, you want a raster application (Photoshop, Painter, Artrage). But it helps if you have a graphics tablet.

Vector applications (Inkscape, Illustrator, Draw) involve tediously laying paths and shapes point by point. It's more like using a CAD program and shapes can be easily changed at an time.

Try both and see which form you prefer. Artrage has a free but limited version.

Thanks. I can't wait for 0.46. It's going to make my work a lot easier and quicker.

Thanks :) Check out ~inkscape's favs for more Inkscape work on :devart:. Unfortunately who ever runs that account doesn't appear to have touched it in a long time, which is a shame.

Thanks for the info on InkScape's favs. I am really getting into vector art these days.

Did not have funds and could not afford Illustrator earlier. Then I found out about InkScape and was blown away by its capabilities.

And then I found your profile here in Deviant Art.

Inkscape's price is definitely right :) I have Illustrator but still prefer to use Inkscape for many drawings that don't require some of Illustrators more advanced features.

I'm not sure, but.......I think.......Yup..........one of her breasts is bigger than the other.

Great stuff!

Don't you know, it's natural for women to have one breast larger than the other. I wanted to create a realistic representation of the female form. Like Michelangelo's 'David' did for males.
