How to vector a sketch from A to Z (part 1) by Mamandil How to vector a sketch from A to Z (part 1) by Mamandil
I felt like trying to make a tutorial, so here you go. :<

Part 2

Yes I didn't mention it in the tutorial, but I prefer using the MLP-VectorClub's cutie marks (well except in this example 'cause the cutie mark was really well drawn) rather than tracing the sketch. It's both faster and more accurate.

I must ask, how do I get the color from the dropper, Everytime I try (even when holding shift) it won't select the color. Urgh its really making me mad. Does anyone know why it might not be selecting the color?

My Inkscape shows Embed and Link, instead of Incorporate. Which one do I use?

Embed is probably the equivalent of incorporate, so choose that.

I didn't try this yet, but it could work even without a sketch!

I have been trying to figure out how to vector properly for weeks, and this is the first tutorial to really make it clear. Thanks so much. :D

Hum perhaps it would be easier for you to watch a video tutorial instead, to get a demonstration.
Here : [link] :iconrainbowrage12: made a series of tutorials for inkscape beginners. The first video should help you get the hang of the tools.
