  1. Hi, Agree with @Slammer, a slippery slope but very good for familiarising yourself with Affinity and inspiration for larger projects. On the subject of Greek patterns, I recently created my version of a cover of a game called Agon. (https://rpggeek.com/rpgitem/292344/agon-2nd-edition) I created a few Greek Raster Pattern brushes. I will upload them to the resources if anyone wants them, when I figure out how to do one of those brush sheets that everyone seems to use.

  3. Hi, Thanks for the comments. I am relatively new to digital art, so still developing my techniques, so forgive me if i use incorrect terminology. I am more used to oil paint, palette knives, brushes and canvases. So tend to follow a similar workflow for my digital projects, which is probably the wrong way. Initially, all is vector, done with shapes and the pen tool in designer persona. I draw the outlines of significant features and clothing. Then draw thick strokes using a small palette to get a basic idea of the coloured areas inside the outline shapes. Then edi
  4. Great Start, you've captured the likeness, keep it up.
  5. Hi, Great Work... I agree, the symmetry only goes up to 16. However you can copy & paste layers and rotate to give the illusion of more. Or create symbols and rotate them. I attempted some mandalas a while ago but could not get the required effects using symmetry, so created them in designer persona using symbols and rotating.
  6. Thanks, I am still relatively new to digital painting and affinity, so all advice is welcome. I do agree about the shadow, there is one but not strong enough.

  8. Thanks for the prompt reply. MacOS, The issue also occurs when selecting from swatches in that the new colour shows as selected but has not changed. It does not happen all the time, but I see your point that if you drag whilst clicking you can get it to occur all the time. However trying to be careful with the click is not something you should have to do. As soon as the new brush or colour shows selected you should be good to go, but no, you have to check somewhere on your workpiece that the selection is good, therefore not ideal and workflow is slowed.

  9. Hi I am still experiencing this problem with the latest version just updated today... This was initially reported nearly 2 years ago. Any update from the developers? has it been logged as a bug? Regards
  10. Hi Is the Reset Brush button in the Brush Editor, suppose to reset the brush back to factory settings? It seems to reset it it back to last saved settings. It works if you leave the brush editor open, but if you close it, then continue working, when you open it again the reset won't work Regards
  11. Hi This issue does annoy me, I am new to Affinity and there are so many brushes I forget the names of them and the brush list does lose highlight especially when using keyboard shortcuts. Pressing more brings up the brush editor, but this doesn't have the brush name either. I would suggest that there should be some way of permanently highlighting or marking which brush is selected. Regards
  12. Hi Is there a keyboard shortcut for the Blur Brush ? Regards
