I'm looking for creative ways to add imperfections or flaws to my vector graphics in order to make them appear more like hand drawn sketches. I'm working with Inkscape so tips that work here are very welcome but I don't want to limit the question to it.
Here are options that I commonly use:
- Actually drawing objects with freehand tools and
simplifythem to get rid of shaky hands effects when using a mouse to draw.
- Add objects and blur them.
- Use colour gradients or patterns.
- Use textures.
Are there methods to methodically add imperfections? I'm especially looking for "not so straight lines" (freehand tools) and "not uniform colouration" (multiple gradients?) as may be the result of different pressure in real paintings.
