Part 1 of my artistic adventures of 2016–Late but great, enjoy!
Recently Inkscape released an updated version–0.92–with couple new key features. Previously Inkscape only had 5 layer blend modes–Normal, Lighten, Darken, Screen and Multiply–which while useful, paled in comparison to Adobe’s Illustrator wide slew of layer blend modes. But with 0.92, that was all changed. Instead of explaining it with words, let’s go through some pictures, shall we?
First, the original 4:
The new and improved selection:
While not every filter will be appropriate in every picture, this increased selection makes an already easy to use, powerful program even more versatile in creating art–did I forget to mention it is also free and has an extensive undo button? (Fyi, Illustrator lacks both of these features) Shade aside, I’m really looking forward to all the new cool ideas I will be able to explore with the improved version of Inkscape–2017 might be an okay year after all.
The trolls be strollin in
emperor clothed they unashamed
Like clouds they be rollin in wind,
thundering like lightning they came
Controversy reeks of disaster
So above like vultures, they glide
Seeking whom they can scour
Simmering, seething in snide
Coming plain, they moan moo with beef
Bulls be brazen, threading in strife stroll
Tis a field, a forum for a foe to be fought
So crying charge, consternation claim control
Words will why, souls will wither
Weather will warp, Woes will wend
For ones simple beyond and abroad
Will weigh whacked, as twits will trend
We weep for Grandma Grammar
See her grave here down below,
see english beautiful butchered,
smh tldr, tmi lmafo lol
Collateral conjectural, who dies matters not here
Cultural contextual, for what was, now lies shot
Cogency calamity, shout louder, inspire fear
Complainers maintain, spew as thou aught
CHARGE ALL CAPS STATES SARGE
For this means SORE!
How THERE they COMMENT
Y DARE they–RAAWWR!
Do you hear that din descending?
Can you feel that impending hum
The trolls beat the war chant
In droves soon tweets will come
For whom, well the trolls
Thumb flexin, tweet vexin, care not
Kermit shaded, inspired in ire
Any target found will be outfought
Ready the canon
Blare loud every horn
Retcon all truth
Demise any who scorn
Bells rung, to ships all called
Correlate toward sober causation
Held hands they sort of once
So stand firm on our citation
Rumors fly, yet we bind them down
Murmurs whisper, amplify their sound
Leaked, mined, there data renown
On the hype train, let us all bound!
TLDR: there, no surprise
I must surmise rows of lines
As length denizens despise
So YOLO XD potatoes vines!
