  1. First off, I love the clean shapes here! It reminds me a little of the Steam logo (in a good way) and the light grey shape fills the circle well so that it works at smaller scales. However, the thin highlight on the circle and shape will be lost even if this image is scaled down to the size of a forum avatar (for example). I love the diagonal shadow but i think the contrast of it could be increased so that it's darker and shows up more, otherwise I think this is a solid piece of work!
  2. Really enjoying this series, thanks for sharing!
  3. Nope, but I made one for you instead! This is super quick, but you'll need to adjust the type to something better as I just stuck plain old Arial in there for now so you can edit it. Find the .afdesign file attached to this post - here's an image preview Hope this helps! money-back-sticker_by_melior64.afdesign
  4. Neat tutorial, @Sahil Ansari! I've subscribed to your channel As a finishing touch to this effect I would probably also add some brushed in blue highlights on their bodies in either a screen or color dodge blend mode. You did a great job of this, I think it adds a lot of movement to the photo and a nice dynamic element!

    PLEASE READ THIS: Sharing Guidelines

    Hey folks, quick question as I'm starting to become more active and don't want to spam: Is it better for me to post individual pieces of work as separate threads in the forum, or is it better to make one single thread where you can find all of my work and keep adding to it? I've seen a few people do this but wasn't sure if there are any rules regarding how often you can post things. Many thanks!
  6. Had a fun little play around manipulating fire! I think I need to spend a little more time refining the masking especially on the fingers but otherwise it was pretty easy to do! I used Live Filter > Sharpen > Clarity to get some grungy face texture going on, a few adjustment layers for lighting and then I masked in some flame images from a resource pack I bought earlier in the year Who else enjoys taking derpy selfies to manipulate?
  7. Perfect! Thanks @Dan C this helps a lot! Looks like it's a smidge quicker than using a dropdown like in other software, too!
  8. Hi folks, just wondering if there's a way in Affinity Photo to resize a documnt or a canvas by percentage? Wasn't sure if I was missing something or if I should put in a feature request. Many thanks!

    Thanks! Just posted here : Thanks so much for all of your help with this!
  10. Hey folks, I was learning about gradient maps in this thread earlier and I was disappointed to see that in Affinity Photo 1.7.2 there's no ability to use existing gradient map swatches in a new gradient map adjustment layer (I believe currently I would have to go and add them all manually again and save them as adjustment presets). This is a feature that I use very frequently and I'd love to be able to select things from my saved swatches (especially if I can drag it in)! Many thanks!

    That's really useful!! Ok one more question on the topic of gradients @Wosven, do you know of any way to use saved swatch gradients in a Gradient Map Adjustment Layer?
  12. What an incredible milestone! I have only just started my YouTube journey myself, so seeing this is a big motivation boost for me! @dmstraker I've subscribed to your channel, looks like there's a lot of neat tricks to learn from you!

    Wow! Thanks @Wosven, that was much easier and a lot more accurate! (Image is the top part, gradient is below the red line)
