What do you mean by dodge?
Do you have a cd-burning software on your system, like k3b,brasero, x-cd-roast,wodim,etc?

Burn and dodge are a bitmap editor thing like in Photoshop or the Gimp. In Gimp you can go to the Tools->Paint Tools menu and select "Dodge/Burn".

I guess that the way to mimic this in vector art would be to obscure parts of the drawing with objects of varying opacity.

If your question was answered, please consider closing it. Otherwise please let us know what still requires an answer.
