  1. You got it so right! haha... so one of the things was that the dev and I wanted something not overly flat despite the trends, but not totally skeuomorphic cause of the trends lol... So I proposed an in between and I think this got a nice not boring flavour, and very clean. I also think there's lots of room for skeuomorphism in the music industry and I think there will always be. And so I keep doing lots of it cause I love it! Yes, my Deviantart is there for experiments and other kind of artwork. Kissand thanks for taking the time to comment on this project!
  2. Thanks Marc! Yeah, this keyboard looks a bit curved but we had several designs for it to choose from. This would have still be fine-tuned probably, as well as the turn for the knobs or the 4 arrow button that eventually became only 2 buttons for the sake of being able to really use it with comfort. In the project I posted in my portfolio, you'll see there's another design for the keyboard. And I agree, yes I should post more! hahaha. Been working a lot lately in Photoshop and traditional techniques, so ... heheh.. well..
  3. This is a 2017 project I was not yet able to showcase. It was a fantastic project to create and design the iPad version ( plus a UI for the plug in version) from the polyphonic synthesizer Redominator (Audiorealism) that finally was not released due to business reasons out of my control. However, it was nearly finished both from design and dev points of view, and I'm showcasing it a couple of years later, so I can tell you that back in the day, apart from a couple of little bugs moving things with the cursor keys and some issues I had with the slicing part, the whole experience overall was lots of fun and I loved it, as much as the result. This is a preview of the interface. You can see many more details and a test demo video on this link: https://www.behance.net/gallery/75938293/UI-deisgn-Redominator-(Polyphonic-Synthesizer)-iPad-Air?
  4. Hi peeps! My first class for Skillshare is live and at the moment, totally FREE! The class is called “LEARN TO USE THE PEN TOOL on Affinity Designer”, and you will be able to learn how to use this tool FOR GOOD, learning the 3 different methods I use to get my drawings done. I’d be very grateful if additionally, you'd use the referral link to sign up for a 2 month free trial that you can cancel at ay time to help me financially. (Skillshare pays me, you don't!). This way not only you'd be able to watch my class, but all the classes in the platform for 2 complete months. I will be also happy to assist you with any doubts you might find along the course. You can find the referral link for this free class in the description for this video : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aTLFnWXoP1k
  5. Thanks Uncle Mez for letting more ppl know about the course! I really appreciate it. When I want to trace a perfect curve I either use the method I explain in lesson 7 of the course (symmetrical segments) or method 3 in lesson 10 (where I draw the heart shape) to make my life really easy, which basically is what fde101 suggested plus refining with the corner tool. It is not exactly Ai curvature tool, but I think it does a pretty good job! Thanks again and let me take the chance to ask you please, if you take the course and like it, to review it. It'll help me a lot grow my channel there. Kiss!

    selecting objects on canvas

    Thanks Miguel. That was it. Thanks Pixel pest. yes I do use it too, but the issue was related to the background that Miguel pointed at. Kiss!
  7. Quick one, this happened to me before Can't select objects on canvas unless I drag from outside the canvas itself. Any refreshment on why this behaviour? Can't recall what was the issue to bring it back to normal selection. Thanks
  8. Hi, just a quick one. I need to know how long does the current A Designer desktop trial version lasts as of today. Thanks

    Gradient Mesh

    And how would ppl receive a feature like the new Ai freedom gradient tool? I honestly never was a fan of gradient meshes cause I never ever needed them to do my illustrations at all, and when I used them all looked a bit artificial compared to my own techniques to achive this without a mesh, and cause I'm used to work things more "freehand", but maybe if I'd try something nicely created but the Serif guys I'd change my mind, who knows... I looked into this video, and really was not very impressed or at least not as much as the ones presenting it as "awesome". Maybe some users like it?
  10. Any clue how this is with a wacom stylus? It won't switch back to brush unless I click B on the keyboard. I can't seem to get it right and my workflow for digital painting is a workflow for digital pain. My hands end up a bit broken, really. I hope it's me not getting it yet. I'm quite new painting in APhoto and being used to photoshop, I'm getting a bit of a hard time to make it flow as I'm used to. Thanks!
  11. Trying to practice my "not-as-good-as-I'd-like" portuguese here with Miguel, ahaha... Besitos, baci, beijinhos, küsschen, kisses, bisoux , φιλιά, petons, and stop, can't say it in any other language haha.. I think... or not that i can remember now ^^
  12. Thanks a lot Miguel, I enjoyed a lot doing it as I enjoy seeing results - and I enjoy even more when people tell me they got to do soemthing they thought they wouldnt be able to do haha, that's even better. Kiss! Beijinhos!
  13. Here the article I just wrote. will be adding more as/if I receive more results from people https://medium.com/@isabel_aracama/the-results-of-people-following-my-flat-illustration-tutorial-on-smashing-magazine-1518c6463aa4
  14. Great info Alfred! Great info! I was writing now an entry on Medium about some of the ppls results, and would love to include this bit. I will of course quote you all. Thanks for letting me know!
