Here is an old list of 10 of the Best Inkscape Tutorials from back in 2009. All the links should work now, again.
Here is a neat tutorial showing how to create an urban design by layering different types of vector elements. In this tutorial, you first create a range of concentric circle stamps (or “brushes”), and layer them on top of different coloured cloud silhouettes. Finally, you create a whole bunch of swirls using the spiro curve and path effects.
Here is another awesome tutorial from the vectortuts+ website, describing how to draw a grungy, beat up cardboard box icon. This tutorial was written for inkscape 0.47, and uses many of the newer inkscape features, including the envelope deformation path effect. Additionally, this tutorial also covers how to achieve the dirty, grungy look in inkscape by using a combination of vector shapes and a bitmap texture. All in all, this is a comprehensive tutorial that almost any one familiar with inkscape basics could follow to produce an awesome graphic.
This tutorial is a great overview on using inkscape for drawing icons. For an overview on managing your workflow in inkscape while designing icons, see the previously posted tutorial, “creating icons with inkscape – a basic workflow.”
Also, be sure to check out the vectortuts website. Even though there are only a handful of inkscape tutorials posted there, if you have intermediate to advanced inkscape skills, you may be able to apply some of the techniques from the other tutorials hosted there.
