Good tutorial - maybe you can help me with my problem I'm facing with Ponyscape for the moment. Somehow, moving strokes/nodes is annoying as hell, it seems to be impossible to move them smooth or just a bit or just one node and not both nodes at the ends. With Inkscape, that weren't problems at all - do I miss some important settings?

You might select 2 nodes by clicking between, I mostly use area select (even for a single node, sometimes with shift for selecting more). As for smooth moving, I don't really know. Although, you can try to set step size for moving nodes with arrow keys (Edit - Preferences - Behavior - Steps).

Thanks a lot :) Is there any setting, that prevents the stroke ends getting rounded with the power stroke filter? Tried tapering as described in your second tutorial, but my strokes were like meh fuck that round end I will stay as before. Zero width worked, but that was too thin.. argh, that vectoring is much more tricky than "normal" digital drawing >.<

Ambassad0r Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Did you set settings for power strokes as shown in the second part (plus caps to zero width)?

So, after doing that step with a test stroke a few times, I found my mistake - if the miter limit is too low, the other settings won't help. So my bad ^^# Sorry for bothering you und thanks for answering anyway :D

I'm allowed to change the Miter, but the end of the stroke stays the same

To make a stroke tapered, you need to apply power stroke path effect which is explained in the second part.

how do you select all of the ones with same width/colors without selecting the ones which are supposed to be different??
with selecting, i use the 'select and drag' but when there are other strokes in beetween, i select them too..... help!

Holding down Shift you can make multiple selection.

Hey, I was just wandering if Ponyscape is anything like Inkscape?
Reply
:iconambassad0r:
Ambassad0r Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Basically, it's a derivative of Inkscape (beta build) and pretty much looks the same.

I been having some minor troubles. Mostly it never stays on the vector layer when editing vector lines. Instead, it basically deselects the layer and goes to the root layer, meaning all the lines I did afterward were just a waste because they weren't on the same layer.

:iconambassad0r:
Ambassad0r Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Have you locked down the other layer?

:icongariandos:
Gariandos Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
The base layer? Yes.

:iconambassad0r:
Ambassad0r Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hm, I dunno, with 2 layers and one of them locked, it should always do everything on the unlocked one.

Gariandos Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Well, whenever I finish editing a curve, it always goes to a layer called "root", which is greyed out and doesn't appear in the layer box but rather in the layer name below the page.

I cannot seem to to make the the pointy corners by increasing the miter limit. It's still boxy. I use Gimp.

Sorry, I can't help you, since I don't use Gimp.

I'm using Ponyscape, and whenever I select a stroke I can't change the Miter.
