Learning how to create these faces in Inkscape is just a matter of working with basic shapes like squares, circles, and polygons. You can then add colors and accent pieces of your choosing.

In addition to the shape tools, you’ll also have to supplement with other tools like the Bezier Pen and the Nodes tool in order to have more granular control of the shapes of your objects. In the video tutorial at the top of the page I also used the new Corners path effect from Inkscape version 1.0.

Here’s another breakdown demonstrating how to design a female avatar…
