Inkscape Stylising (Kitchen Sink, Mineral Water, Filters)
Posted 02 February 2011 - 08:08 PM
I used Inkscape as a final solution to the stylisation of photographs.
Some photos we took came too dark, or even distorted.
So we went for the process of redrawing / retracing vector by vector.
Stylisations. Here are my examples

I made into this:

I made this:
this kitchen sink with a luxury taps gets stylised in Inkscape
More examples (without the original photo)
Mineral Water Bottle
plastic bottle with mineral water
Jug of Ice Water
jug with water and floating ice
The last two examples were the hardest.
Reflection is very hard to achieve with Inkscape.
And what is even harder than Reflections? Light Blur and Refraction!
I used Inkscape. And used Gimp to crop and save it to jpegs.

The kitchen sink looks way more futuristic!
How many colors does the svg have? And is every color like as big as the picture? I tried to use vectorize bitmap once and there the color paths were way bigger than the needed to be.
Was your workflow at the and of the pictures ok, or did inkscape make problems? If not, could you tell me on what computer you worked on?
Really great work, must have been lots of work!

I used Linux.
I used many layers - over 20+. So yes, in the end Inkscape started becoming very very slow.
It's the blur that makes Inkscape slow. It was very hard, but very good practise.

I was sure that you used an automatic vectorization, especially at the jug of water. This is so realistic and perfect, I love the reflection at the bottom and the outline of the upper part, wonderful!

I did it by hand.
