Inkscapeで壊れた文字の描き方

それではInkscapeで壊れた文字の描き方について説明していきます。

Firstly, type your string as text.

1.png

next, i manually kerned my letters to make the spacing closer
together and a bit randomly moved up or down.

(manual kerning is done by putting the cursor after a letter,
holding down ALT and pressing an arrow key.)

now, we are going to take a wedge out of the text…
draw the wedge that you want to take out with the path tool.

3.png

now, select both the wedge and the text, and duplicate these items…
(do not deselect them after duplication)

4.png

with one copy of the text and the wedge item selected, choose
path > intersection, (this will create the wedge item from the text)
and change its colour (i changed it to magenta)

6.png

now, select the other red wedge path and the other text path
and choose path> difference. this will create a path of the text, with-
out the wedge in it, like below:

repeat this process on the black text for a number of different wedges…
and you will end up with something like this…

9.png

next, move the wedges out a bit to create the ”shattered” look…
you may need to path>inset some of the wedges to make them fit and look right…

10.png

now, combine all these seperate paths together…
press CTRL+A to select all, then choose path>combine…

11.png

next i put a ”grunge” look to the text…
there are many different ways of creating ”grunge brushes” in inkscape.
examples of how to do this can be found at these two places:
http://howto.nicubunu.ro/grungy_brushes/
http://www.redhatmagazine.com/…

here is the SVG file of the grunge i used:
http://www.box.net/shared/i70qaio1v7  

to use it, just lay it where you want on your path (in this case it is our shattered text…)
select both the grunge and the texty path, and choose path>differnce…

and here is the finished version… (SVG is here)
