Create Game Assets In Inkscape. Missiles

Let’s Create Game Assets In Inkscape. Missiles!

Hey guys, welcome to this new series in which ,we are going to make game assets with Inkscape.
If you are making a 2d game and looking for tools to make art for your game. Inkscape can be an excellent choice. You can make really good-looking art in Inkscape.

In this series we will create art assets for games. The goal Is to learn how to make game assets in Inkscape easy and fast.

In this first part of the series we will be making a simple 2d missile art asset. Our goal will be to learn how to use circles and powerful tools like Booleans in Inkscape to make awesome looking art easily.

If you don’t have Inkscape yet, download it from

So, Let’s Begin

Step 1 :Add a Circle using the circle tool. Also give the stroke and fill following color.
Step 2 :Scale it Vertically,

 then do object to path as shown. 

Step 3 : Select the edit path nodes button. and then select the upper node and change it to a corner node by using buttons in top left corner.
Also, make the bottom node auto-smooth.

Step 4: Change color and duplicate.

Step 5: Add a rectangle on top these current objects such that top part of the duplicated shape is NOT covered, that is the original shape and duplicate of it.
Then select the rectangle and duplicate only and Go to Path->Difference.

Result of this will be like this, only the point part that will did not cover will remain of duplicate.

 Step 6:  Change the color of the difference to red.

next add a Rectangle to the bottom side of our missile as shown. Also, Do Path-> Object to path.

Step 7: This new path will be our stand for missile. So we need to give it its shape. So, again choose edit path nodes and add new nodes in between the upper edge of our stand by click the plus icon in leftmost corner of the screen.

Step 8: Move node by using mouse to give stand its shape. You can be creative and give it any shape, just make sure that the missile can stand on it.
Step 9:  Once you are happy with it, Duplicate it and the Flip it, and move it to the other side of the 

Step 10: Scale and adjust missile horizontally to make it look more pointy. Because remember what Great General Aladdin once said  about missiles.

Step 11:  You can then customize your missile by changing its color. Also you can put stripes , text or anything to make it look cooler. I just a rectangle of light Grey color.

General, missile is ready. You can expriment with different fill and stroke style as i did below to make look more awesome ;).

This is it for this part of the series. In Next part we will be making Explosion animation.
I hope you this part of series and will love this series.
Thank you.

A Quick Look at Machine learning

A Quick Look at Machine learning Ever heard of ‘Artificial intelligence’, of course you did after all we all watch sci-fi movies. But if you ever tried to know more about AI then you might have heard about Machine learning. Also in past few years it's been a hot topic in computer science. So, what is machine learning??. Let's talk about this…, Computer are everywhere today, even in your pocket (your phone).They help us do a lot of thing but in reality these are just calculators with logic and control circuitry.Therefore we can program them to do different tasks.But there are scenarios where we cannot predict the situation and its nearly impossible to program the computer for that.For instance , CCTV Cameras are installed at many places and surveillance has become very easy as it can be done remotely but we need a human to process the video from the cameras as a computer cannot tell us if everything is ok or not.Now imagine if the computer can automatically dete
