    eebee reacted to paolo.limoncelli in DAUB Comics Basic Set 2.0   
    Hi folks!
    It's time to update this thing... 
    The same set, suitable for cartoonists, character designers and comic artists.



    Now it is composed of:

    4 layout tools
    1 standard pencil and 3 layout pencils embedding typical colors like blue, red and green (you don't need to choose it from color picker).
    Now with tilt for shading effect!

    8 Inkers
    G pens, trapezoid shaped and Sumi-e variants!
    All these tools are sensitive to pen pressure and tilt.
    Hope you'll enjoy it!
    Grab it here!
     
    PS. The old one is still here

    I always flatten my docs before exporting to pdf. Which I use PDF flatten, I found is the best option for CMYK printing. The flattening before pdf process is something I learned years ago, so it was automatic for me.

    eebee got a reaction from David in Holographic Planet   
    A friend of mine is making a no-budget Star Wars fan film. He likes to make models of ships and sets but of course there were a few things that required some digital effects. One thing he needed (and he needed it in a hurry!) was an animated "hologram" of the planet Coruscant (a planet completely coved by a giant city).
     
    I used Affinity Photo making heavy use of the Pixel Tool and the Mirror Distort (I wish I'd kept better track of the steps, but it was late and I was working fast!). I made three or four different small patterns like the two shown on the left. Then I copy pasted the patterns several times changing their scale and distributing them around the canvas. Next I used the eraser to remove small and large sections of the patterns to make them look different. More layers and shifted copies. Then a layer of just straight lines connecting "hubs". Finaly the pattern was colour adjusted to be bright red (I didn't want to stare a bright red the entire time I was working on it).
     
    The pattern was UV mapped onto a sphere in Blender and then animated with a slow 360 degree revolution on a tilted axis.
     
    The animation was later composed over the live action shot of Princess Leia, who was filmed with a red light shining on her.

    Playing with some new techniques. I've been sketching directly with vectors and so far I'm happy with the results. What do you think?. Any comment is welcome :)

    Hello, I'm a newbie from France so, sorry for my High shool english, not very good. For many reasons, I stopped Photoshop. Now, I use Affinity Photo. No regret. 
    So, I show you some illustrations made with Affinity. I think that Photoshop is not better in fact.

    PS : For the man with glasses, he's a french bad philsopher, always at TV ... we have a lot like this...

    eebee reacted to penwiper in Custom fills?   
    The only way I can think of right now is to use bitmap fills.  The Devs might be able to help more with that-- but basically what you do is you make a pattern and export it to PNG.  (Or, you know, just search for copyright free patterns online, but stupid Shutterstock keeps popping up anyway even when I define my searches in advance mode on Google so I try not to do that too much.)  Then, using the Gradient tool, select Bitmap from the fill option and find your file.  The size of the bitmap can then be adjusted by the handles that appear with the fill. 
     
    I've used this method a couple of times to make an interesting background pattern for some objects, then copied said object and used a gradient level on the copy to give it more depth, but you have to be sure the shape is exactly the way you want it because I don't think you can adjust nodes on separate layers to do the same thing. 
     
    I know what you're wanting though, and it would be cool . . . especially if it was completely vector-based.

    I have a series of paper craft robots. Three years ago I made a Santa Clause robot, then a reindeer robot, and this year I've added elf robots. The fold patterns were created in SketchUp, and the artwork was done in both AP and AD. All the textures are assembled from photos that I am constantly shooting.

    eebee reacted to Deadbyxmas in Affinity illustrations and experiments   
    Hi all,
     
    my name is Robert (aka Deadbyxmas!), I'm an illustrator, animator etc and by accident I bumped into Affinity Designer a couple of weeks ago (I was probably googling around for alternatives to Ai....don't we all), tried the demo (in between paid jobs...hmm) and then, once I had a better idea of its workflow, bought it and got cracking with a few sketches and ideas.
    As usual I tend to explore new software by trial and accident, without tutorials and stuff, so probably I'm still overlooking a lot of its features - I noticed that every time I use it I find a better way around things etc. - but I thought I'd share with you some of my first experiments.
    Actually I'm not sure what I can share or not here - there is a pic that is proving quite popular on another social site, but is slightly (veeeeeery slightly, I wouldn't even consider it so) risquè, so you tell me - I can direct you to the external link.
     
    In the meantime here's my first (nearly) full illustratration done entirely in AD, included the texture masking.
     
    best!
