  1. Hi all, I hope you are well! I've recently started doing a lot of character design using AD and have been inspired by many talented artists on Instagram. I realise a lot of them would use Procreate for their artwork, but I think you can mostly do everything using AD.. I'm not really sure how to phrase my question, but I wonder if any of you know what sort of brushes might have been used to create something like the attached photo? Also in a lot of designs (and in the example one attached), I see some of the shapes outlined.. it's not like a full or a harsh outline if you were to add it as a stroke, but more like it's been drawn on afterwards, and it's a very natural organic looking pencil line.. Does anyone have any suggestions for how you might do this and get it close to the fill line/edge? Sorry if my questions are a bit vague or simple, I'm very new to this! Thanks Jessica
  2. Sorry.. Another update! It looks like it might be my tablet.. for some reason it seems to now be working.. I'll let you know if not though. Thanks
  3. In fact, this is also happening when I'm not even trying to paint within the shape, but on a new separate layer. I've tried using some raster watercolour brushes, but they're not showing up on the page at all.
  4. Hi all, I'm just trying to create a flower image and have drawn a shape using the pencil tool.. I have then tried painting within the shape in the Pixel Persona using some of my raster pencil brushes. For some reason it's not working at all. I'm pretty sure I've not had a problem with this before but maybe I'm missing something? (Sorry I'm not very knowledgeable about all this!) I can use some of the other brushes in the shape, but others aren't working. They don't make any marks on the page at all. Do let me know if you need me to explain further, I hope you understand what I mean. Thanks so much in advance! Jessica
  5. Ahh no I hadn't! Thank you, I had forgotten to do that with my new laptop, so that must be why! I really appreciate your answer and help!
  6. I definitely was able to do it before, I have edited others but now it doesn't seem to be working in the same way. Thanks anyway for your help. Jessica
  7. Yes sure, sorry I'm not sure what to call it, but I have attached a screenshot. Thanks, Jessica
  8. Hi there, I'm not really sure how to explain this, so sorry if it's confusing! But I had been using PSD files to create mockup images on AP, and I would double click the 'project' icon to insert my design into the photo. For some reason I can no longer double click the 'project' icon, and so I'm not sure how to insert my design? I don't know if AP has changed or if it is because I'm using a new laptop? Thanks in advance. Jessica
  9. Hi there, I have been using the Affinity Inkwell brushes for a while now and suddenly when I went to use them today they have stopped working. They just seem to come up with a basic pen brush. I'm not sure why, I have made sure that the controller is set to 'brush defaults' and I have tried the other options as well. Other brushes seem to be working fine, it's only this set. Has anyone else noticed this or is there something I need to select? Thanks in advance. Jessica
  10. Hi there, I'm just wondering how to show the tools, toolbar and studio on startup? I know how to un-hide them, but I'd really like it if they could just show by default on startup, and I'm not sure how. Thank you! Jessica
  11. That's really helpful, thank you so much for taking the time to explain it to me! I will have a play around now and give it a go. Much appreciated
  12. Hi there, I was just wondering what the best way to draw some watercolour florals would be? I've got an example image below for reference. How would you go about recreating something like this/what kind of brushes would you use? Sorry, this is probably fairly basic, it's just I'm still learning! Thanks in advance. Jessica
  13. Hi there, I would need the 'look' of a grid but don't want it to disappear when I save it, it's for a design I'm doing
  14. Hi there, I didn't mean there was a problem, I just don't know how to do it. So are you saying you have to do it manually with the line tool? Thanks Jessica
  15. Hi there I was wondering what would be the best/easiest way of creating a blueprint style graph? I've got an example below : https://image.shutterstock.com/image-photo/old-blueprint-background-texture-technical-260nw-284571158.jpg I'm not sure how to do it using AD, so any help would be much appreciated! Thanks Jessica
