Inkscape. I use it for all my pony vectors, and I used it to arrange this tutorial image as well.

I used effects on GIMP 2.8, and it came out looking swell.
Thanks!

I've worked with GIMP for some things (eye glow effects, mainly) and I think this would also work there.

Myself, I mostly work with MS Paint, so the method I use when digitally drawing pony eyes is much simpler, if not as easy: "ellipse tool + steady hand with the brush tool" or sometimes just "steady hand with the brush tool".

I'm having trouble with the Pattern along Path method.. I don't have any kind of pattern like that and I'm completely new to Inkscape, so have been manually tapering all my lines. Are there videos for this method?

:iconaltrform:
AltrForm Featured By Owner May 13, 2012
For the most part, I make my own patterns from scratch and save them in a separate file or copy them over to a new one whenever I need them.

I don't have time to actually flip through videos at the moment, but YouTube has a bunch of videos for Inkscape Pattern to Path.

Hmm well I tried using a pattern and it just made the line thicker. Am I doing something wrong?
Reply
:iconaltrform:
AltrForm Featured By Owner May 14, 2012
Depending on the pattern object you used, it might look like the line simply got thicker. However, there should actually a be a new object on top of the line which is a stretched/bent copy of the pattern object. Try dragging the "thicker" line and see if you actually have two objects there after applying the extension.

Hmm well when I deleted the original line and it ended up turning out like this after using Pattern along Path: [link]

Interesting. It looks like your underlying path might have been a loop rather than a line. Did you convert "Stroke to Path"?

If you somewhere to upload the svg file, I can take a closer look to see what's going wrong.

i wish this made sense to me cause then i could totally use it. but being that I have hardly any clue on how to use Inkscape in the first place, this sadly doesn't help. :iconinthecornerplz:

Wait is this for photoshop and if it is would it work for gimp but its still awesome

AltrForm Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2011
This is for Inkscape, a free, vector-based drawing program. As GIMP is to Photoshop, Inkscape is to Flash/Illustrator. [link]

I don't know what sort of clipping/masking capabilities GIMP or Photoshop have (since they're important for this method of making eyes), but the basic design principles should be applicable no matter what program you use.
