Good morning all,
I am Brandon from Dearborn, Michigan, USA. I work in IT Innovation by day, doing xReality simulations in Unreal for VR and HoloLens, and aspiring game developer and graphic artist by night. I had picked up the Affinity Trinity a couple months ago and for the first month only used it for refactoring my logo and also to refactor a few glyphs in my game. Since then, I have started watching tutorials and doing. I have started to create some arts to sell on clothing and posters (I really like the displate products), and am also working on making my own fabric patterns as I also tailor as a hobby and I have ideas for my own prints to make, use, and sell. The brush engine is amazing and I do plan on learning how to use it to make my own.
For many years I would use gimp and inkscape for my needs, and upon my first use of Designer and Photo I realized I should have purchased these long ago. I have not yet used Publisher other than to launch it a couple times, and really should study tutorials as well as the materials you provide - which, thank you for providing the example projects for each of these - so that I can understand how it works and where I can use it. I love how all three work seamlessly with each others' native files. As I also use Flame Painter and other Escape Motions software and started again using Black Ink from Bleank where they meet a need or I know how to more easily accomplish a task, I love how easy it is to place an image into a Designer or Photo document and set them to be assets for later use; is it possible to export assets from Designer and import them into Photo? I may just be missing something obvious.
Currently I am using a Huion drawing tablet which is six years old and so the pen no longer holds a charge and requires being plugged in all the time to work, so I'm now looking to see what I can upgrade to.
