SVG style graphics with Blender


Can you create some great looking 2D graphics in Blender? Sure you can! LightningIsMyName explains how.

I have a tutorial about creating SVG style vector graphics inside Blender. They can't be exported to SVG (yet) but they have the look of works which were done in Inkscape/Illustrator.

I always liked illustrations which seems a bit cartoonish and vector style. Many work I have seen with inkscape and illustrator astonished me. Since i can't download inkscape for now, All i was left to do was to be jealous...

Recently I found several techniques to transform blender into an illustration program such as inkscape/illustrator. With special shaders and nodes I succeeded in several effects. See the image attached for this post - all of them are vectors in blender internal with no pixel based textures.

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.


  1. Very cool! Thanks for sharing. I'll have to look in to this more and give that tutorial a go, as I'd love to create some Vector images in Blender.

  2. Hey i cant get the gradient to work to well. I dont know what i'm doing but all else this is pretty neat. thanks for the inkscape tip above replier, i'm downloading it now.
