Inkscape Keys

Hi guys!

Do you know Inkscape? It’s a freeware and open source software you can download from internet. It’s a very beautiful software that you can use to draw nice illustrations.

I’ve drawn all my illustrations with it and I think it’s a very useful instrument for vector designs.

I want to advise you to use some keyboards that can help you in your works. I often use them and I think they help you to draw more quickly and without lose your concentration.
