    Default Better Coastlines with Inkscape

    I just figured out how to improve my coastlines in inkscape, using the calligraphy tool rather than freehand drawing... I apologize if this is "duh" obviously known to everybody but me, and I also apologize that I can't be bothered to type it up twice and instead shamelessly redirect you at my blog for the details.

    As a PS, here's a sample coastline created with this process.

    Nice!

    I've used Inkscape for graphics projects for several years now, but not done much with the calligraphy pen tool. I'd never have thought of using it for coastlines - nicely done!

    Nice! I saw your blog post on this and it caught my eye. There are allot of options with the calligraphy brush that could really change up the look, as well!
