Hi everyone, In this tutorial, I will show you how to create a vector background using gradient mesh in Inkscape.
What you will learn
- How to use Mesh Tool
- How to use Dropper Tool
Create a background with rectangle tool (R).
Change the color to (#fcaca3ff).
Now, create a mesh. Use mesh tool (below gradient tool), then double click on the rectangle.
Double-click on the top left corner until the arrow point to the node, double-click and press d to activate the dropper tool, and change the color to Dark Slate Blue (#423995ff). Change the smoothing to Bicubic.
Add more rows and columns by double-clicking on the edge of the rectangle.
Move the node by dragging it and try to change the color of each node.
Try to experiment with the color and move the node for more results.
