I'm curious... How did you get the magic around the Ranger (and minigun) to be like that? It looks like it follows the around the edge of the aura, but I can only get Inkscape to have gradient fills that are either round or linear. And it looks too smooth to be Interpolated.
Well for magic aura I first make a wavy shape which goes around the object. I then make it transparent at around 30.
Then I duplicate that shape Ctrl-d and then go to dynamic offset in paths. And reduce the size of the object. Swap out the fill for a stroke. Increase the thickness quite a lot. And then blur to 10%. Then duplicate and make the new stroke back to 1 and no blur. Then select both the blurred and normal stroke and go to path-select-clip. And once done press Ctrl-alt-C and that should be it.
Ah... You put a blur on it. Now that you say that, it seem really obvious. Been using Inkscape for about a year and a half now and I never thought of doing that way, so I usually try to avoid doing magic. But now that I have a tried-and-true method with the outcome I like, I can start doing that. Thanks!
