Description

If you have an amazing game idea, and you wish to develop your own custom graphics, this class is for you!

I’m going to teach you how to use Inkscape, a free design software, and create all the game art you need in order to develop a 2D game!

Because Inkscape is a vector graphics software, the assets you create will be scalable and also highly versatile. You will create them once and then you can use them on any device and also any resolution! From iPhones to desktop computers.

You will learn the core concepts, tools, and functions and you will be able to develop fully functional 2D Games.

The instructor is very detailed in describing how to use the tools of Inkscape. I have been using it for many years, but I am learning new ways to create my objects with shortcuts I never knew before. Excellent course for every level of Inkscape user!

Great course! Really teaches you all the basics of Inkscape. Initially, the lecturer is slightly difficult to understand. However, I got used to it fairly soon and it wasn't really an issue for me for the rest of the course

It’s a bit hard to understand the instructor sometimes but it’s not horrible. But other than that its easy to follow along.

It was a very interesting course, which helps to use the little tricks in Inkscape. Sometimes hard to understand what the instructor is speaking, but it's not a problem because you can check the actions in the video or can go back on them. Thank you guys, I got what I wanted.

The course is very useful for anyone that begins to navigate Inkscape. It includes useful examples with comments, with some good tutorial examples. Very detailed and helpful.

Hasta ahora se ha limitado a explicar el uso de un programa en lugar de la creación de arte, que es el objetivo del curso.

I highly recommend this course for true beginners, like me. I'm a real newcomer to graphics. I have some experience in Photoshop, but that's all. Amazingly, I'm going through this course & learning very quickly! I'm amazed, because I'm a slow learner. The instructor's style is clear & friendly. The lessons are structured so that you'll remember what you've learned. I do recommend that you start from the beginning & go forward, rather than skipping around, because the lessons are built on what came before. Finishing each lesson gives you a great sense of accomplishment. It's a lot of fun!
