Cartoon penguin (Inkscape SVG)

I've spent this evening working on a cartoon penguin in Inkscape. I nearly posted this in Artwork, but it's not really much to do with #!. Nonetheless, this is where I'm hanging most these days, so I thought I'd share with y'all:

My progress, for those who may be interested:

Any constructive comments and criticism are most welcome smile

Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.

Re: Cartoon penguin (Inkscape SVG)

I really, really like your penguin.  I really, really do not like the old Linux penguin at all.


I view KDE like I view snow. It looks fun and marvelous, it's fun to play in, but after a while I just want someone to take it all away.

I'm glad to hear someone else say that! This is a Tux alternative, but one day I'm going to design a proper, elegant Tux replacement logo! tongue

Now that's an awesome penguin.  And I have to agree with you, I'm not that fond of Tux either.  yikes

Re: Cartoon penguin (Inkscape SVG)

Installed a newer version of Inkscape and continued with some variations.

Re: Cartoon penguin (Inkscape SVG)

I considered posting yesterday that I thought his feet would look more "natural" under him instead of in front and viola!, you read my mind...

Nice work!

Re: Cartoon penguin (Inkscape SVG)

Or you could link directly to the post to help my SEO and blah blah.  tongue  smile

Actually, this post is responsible for most of the traffic to my blog via Google image search! I've even written a couple of blog posts about people who pinched it to use in computer games and print on t-shirts etc.
