Digital art_2021. Burning Sunset (vector repeat)

avatar

Hi friends!

I liked Inkscape program so much that I decided to continue working in it.
Yes, while I was drawing a pumpkin and watching the lessons of other artists, I had a few ideas that I could draw using Inkscape.

To begin with, I decided to repeat my own drawing "Burning Sunset in South Africa" - it seemed to me that it would look good in a vector version.

53_.jpg

So, I open the picture in Inkscape by going to "File - Import"

1_.jpg

2_.jpg

Resizing to borders of work file

3_.jpg

Then I choose Draw Bezier curves and Straight Line tool and draw a restangle to borders of picture and fill it with colors i pick with Eyedropper on top of picture.

4_.jpg

To make a gradient fill I chosse an linear gradient icon on Fill and Stroke palette.

5_.jpg

Select lower point and add a color like bottom sky - dark red

6_.jpg

Since the sky is multicolored, I add one more point to the gradient line and choose a new color for it.
And resize a sky restangle again to leave a place at the bottom for earth restangle

8_.jpg

Colorful sky

9_.jpg

Sky and earth base is ready!

10_.jpg

In next step I draw the sun with Create circles, ellipsis and arcs tool

11_.jpg

Pick a color right from the picture

12_.jpg

and replace to artwork

13_.jpg

For drawing a sunset clouds I choose Draw Bezier curves and Straight Line tool again

14_.jpg

fill it with linear gradient

14_.jpg

and replace to artwork too

15_.jpg

and move it one object lower (lower than the earth)

16_.jpg

I paint other clouds in the same way

17_.jpg

I also take a color directly from the picture of the sample
I try not to copy the sample picture one to one, but at the same time I keep some separate fragments, as in the original

19_.jpg

Some clouds I modify with Edit path by nodes tool to make them look more dynamic

20_.jpg

This is how the sky and the sun will look like in the setting clouds.

21_.jpg

So, time to draw upper atmospheric clouds!
I just fill the first cloud with color, blur it slightly and lower the opacity.

22_.jpg

And then I just improvise with shapes and gradients.

23_.jpg

25_2.jpg

26_3.jpg

27_.jpg

You can also create multi-color gradients by simply adding new markers to the lines.

28_.jpg

Very nice and airy!

29_.jpg

Then I draw a star with Create stars and polygons tool

30_.jpg

Modification with Edit path by nodes tool

31_.jpg

I move it to the picture and adjust the size, along the way change the color to a lighter one

32_.jpg

I select a star, copy and paste in place, then change a size and opacity for it

33_.jpg

To draw the nebula, I zoom in on the document to 300% and create several small circles of different sizes.

34_.jpg

Then I group them into one object

35_.jpg

Fill it white and with Spray object by sculpting or painting tool draw a big cluster of stars

37_.jpg

If there are too many stars, you can switch to the Eraser in the tool properties panel and erase unnecessary elements.

38_.jpg

Then I select all objects, move them to the background, blur and lower the opacity

39_.jpg

I again ungroup individual nebulae and move the stars in different ways.

40_.jpg

41_2.jpg

To draw a distant planet, I draw a circle with Create circles, ellipsis and arcs tool, choose a base color for it and in the "Fill and Stroke" palette click on the icon of the radial gradient.
The object is automatically filled with a gradient from color to transparency and gets beautiful blurred edges.

42_.jpg

The sky is completely ready,

43_.jpg

I move on to the creation of the earth use Draw Bezier curves and Straight Line tool for it again and black color

44_.jpg

I also draw the tree trunk using Draw Bezier curves and Straight Line tool

45_.jpg

45_.jpg

But I want to draw the tree branches using Draw freehand lines tool.
This tool, like Draw Bezier curves and Straight Line tool, has an option in the settings, in which you can draw with objects from the clipboard

47_.jpg

So, I draw several bizarre shapes, like these

46_.jpg

I copy one or the other to the clipboard and do the strokes by Draw freehand lines tool

48_.jpg

Each of the branches, if necessary, can be modified using Edit path by nodes tool (but first converting it to a contour ( Path - Object to Path )

49_.jpg

Does this plant look like an African exotic tree?

50_.jpg

I also draw silhouettes of animals and grass using Draw Bezier curves and Straight Line tool

51_.jpg

Oh yes, and birds, of course!
Its Create circles, ellipsis and arcs tool and Draw Bezier curves and Straight Line tool

52_.jpg

That's it, I made my vector African burning sunset!

53_.jpg

Two variants

54_.jpg

I hope you find my new tutotial very informative ;)
Thanks for your attention!
Have a nice and creative day for all!
Regards

Gera
