Hi guys, we meet again today. Today i'm gonna share to you how to make a simple facebook icon with Inkscape. I think you all know what is facebook, because in this era everybody use it. Not only young children but also adults and even kids have a facebook.
Do you know a facebook icon, right. I know there are so many icons facebook that had been made in this cyber world. You can search it on google by writing keyword "Facebook Icon" on image search tab. And..... wuzzzzzzz....... There are so many icons facebook that will be appear.
But do you ever think "Can you make it by yours own way?". Because yes i'm. That's why i'm gonna show you how to make a simple facebook icon by my own way.
Ok here we go....
First we open the Inkscape, after that click the Create Rectangles and Squares tool on Tool Box. This is the icon of Rectangles and Squares tool :
After that on Tool Control Bar set the corner of the box by set the Rx to be 40px, just like this.
And then make the box and it's gonna just like this.
Set The Rx
After that we make the line which lies in the inside by doing this. Click on the square and then we duplicate by pressing CTRL + D, after that we set the color becomes colorless at the Palette by clicking the color that marked cross.
And then we set the stroke color become light blue (# D7F4EE) by right-clicking on the respective colors then click Set Stroke like this.
Set to Colorless
After we set the stroke and then we set the thickness of a stroke in a way in Fill and Stroke boxes or we can open it by pressing Shift + CTRL + F and then we select the Stroke Style tab and we set its width to 10px.
Set The Width of Stroke
And now it's time for us to make the letter "F". First click "Create and Edit Text Object" icon on the Tool Box.
After that, write the letter "f" and change the color to be white. In this Tutorial I use Calibri Font Style, but you can use another Font Style. And then we enlarge by pressing the CTRL key and then drag the bottom right corner so that it looks like this.
That's for the Step 5 and now the step 6.
Zoom In the Text
In this step we gonna make the shiny part, here it is the instruction.
First we will create an oval circle, on the Tool Box click the "Create Circles, Ellipses, and Arcs" icon. Don't forget to change the color to be white.
Then we create a circle on top to cover the top of the letter F like this.
After that we duplicate the First Square which have the blue color.
Create the circle
And then we select the Square that we have been duplicate before and the circle. First click the Square and thet press Shift+click the circle to select them both.
Duplicate the Blue Square
After that, on the Menu Bar click Path > Division or we can press CTRL + / for the shortcut.
Select the Circle and the Aquare
And it's gonna be like this.
Then we remove the top so that would be like this.
Had been Division
Now change the opacity to be 23.0% by pressing Shift + CTRL + F and set the opacity bar so that it look like this and set the stroke color into white.
After Remove the Top
The Result of Step 6
Step 7 Final Touch
Duplicate the First Square, the blue one, then we change the color to be Aqua (#00FFFF) and change the opacity to be 27.9%.
The last thing, press the PageDown (PgDn) as much as three times it used to change the position of the box at the bottom of the letter "F". So this is the final result.
How about it, it's easy right. Ok, I think that's all for today and see you in another tutorial.
