Inkscape 0.45 About Screen by Miamoto Inkscape 0.45 About Screen by Miamoto
Here's the bitmap render of my entry for the Inkscape 0.45 About Screen Contest. I used the new blur feature (love it!) to create a perspective with a strong depth of field often seen in photography. The glossy rendition of the inkscape logo is prominent, embossed in a fogged-glass stationary. The "Draw Freely." text was a handwriting font that i later revised by adding ink splotches to the image.

Suggestions and comments are greatly appreciated; revisions may take place accordingly. ;)

The original SVG source can be found here: [link]

Everything is done in Inkscape, so the flower and vase were drawn in Inkscape with a mouse. The message can be anything you feel it conveys. ;)

Thanks for the fave.

Most excellent detail. It sets a peaceful mood and has great color. A little jumbled-looking for an about screen, but thats a little nit-picky.

=p Thanks. This didn't make the top 3 in the contest, so i'm probably going to make a derivative work using the flower as a base.

awesome design and yeah the blur certainly is effective when you do stuff like this it's really good.

Thanks, i tried to find an aspect which utilizes blur often in an area like photography but isn't seen used in a vector program... until now. :D

Excellent work, but at least for me, the link for the original SVG source isn't working :(

I'm making my way in Inkscape, and like to apreciate these files, to understand how it was done ;)

Cheers, mate! :D

Thanks a lot Barrocas. :dance: The link doesn't download the file immediately; it sends you to a page which says "Please wait 15 seconds." It counts down, and after 15 seconds it is replaced by a direct link to the file. ;) Does that help?

Ah, looks like it's time to change hosts. That one seems to have some bandwidth limitations. The link has been replaced with one whose host has unlimited bandwidth; the link appears near the top of the page. ;)
