Tutorial Removed

by

Unfortunately, the Psdtuts+ staff have had to remove a recently published Plus tutorial, as the final artwork closely resembles an artists existing work. When this situation occurs, unfortunately, the tutorial is removed and payment is not made to the author of the tutorial. Claims of plagiarism are taken very seriously and thoroughly investigated on this site and always something to be aware of. We appreciate the communities diligence in catching this and have removed this tutorial from the site. Thanks.

To avoid this situation, be sure to always credit your work with any influences, then we can determine accurately whether the proposed tutorial concept meets our site requirements prior to publication - learn more about creating content for Psdtuts+. Also, in general, avoid mimicking other artists work, especially closely mimicking one artists specific work. We'll all be influenced to some degree, but the goal here is original artwork, and not recreating someone else's art.

    Inkscape's popularity has grown significantly over the past few years making its way into the professional sector, particularly with Animators and Game Developers.

However, it can still leave a lot to be desired when directly exporting to EPS (Encapsulated Postscript) for stock sites. In this tutorial we'll be discussing some of the follies of creating stock art using Inkscape, as well as workarounds! Read More…
