  1. Working on the iPad Pro and using the Apple Pencil seems to cause a huge amount of battery drain. Looking at the stats I had Affinity Designer on screen for 2hrs 20mins and lost over 65% of my battery life. is this normal or am I being pedantic? George
  2. Any chance o’ adding the brush outline to brushes? It appears temporarily when changing the size but disappears soon after.... I have depended on it while using the desktop version. Any chance o’ adding it to the iPad version? Cheers, George

    Hey folks, Been a wee while but I'm back at creating creatures with Affinity Designer (and paper & pencil). Instead of adding a new topic for every one I make, I thought I'd start this new thread to put them all in and show them off to you all. So here's one for ya! :) George

    Cheers! Yeah, unfortunately the site has been compromised so I have to scrap it and start a new one. When I say 'start' I mean I'll get to it one day..... I'm focussing on updating my social media feeds (mainly Instagram and Twitter - @eejits on both) and my Patreon (where I add exclusive sketches, colouring-in pages and mail out Prints & Stickers to backers).

    Ohhh My Strawberry Monkey

    Nice! I like how you incorporated eyelashes into the design and the offset lower teeth. Neat wee touches that add to the character design. Me likes it!! George

    Thanks both!! Comments like these spur me on to finish this. At least, get the first draft outta the way. Then it’s onto the fun stuff o’ polishing and editing. Once I get one book, who knows where it’ll end up. But I’m getting ahead o’ myself. Onwards to the writing..... Thanks guys, you’re the best. George

    @jmwellborn Unfortunately, my children are too old. My boy is nearly 19, my daughter is 15. Although I have read it out to them both, my daughter (obviously due to her being younger) reacted to it well. I think.....! Thanks for your confidence in me! One day I'll get it cracked! George

    I wouldn't mind (one day) having someone look over my words. As some people here know, I have been trying to write a kids book for many, many, many years (seriously it has been ages). I started off with a whole world of creatures and an overly complex story with too many characters that I didn't know how to finish (I'm not a writer!) . Now I only have three main characters (2 good friends and 1 baddie type) and more simple story but I'm still wondering about the ending and getting it under 500 words for the young 'uns. That'll come once I finish the first draft and then edit. Honestly, it has been a load of fun and writing it has put a big ol' smile on my face. It's like the feeling I got when I first started putting eejits up on the web. It's great. Of course, I'll have to get myself a copy o' Publisher to lay out this whole thing! So maybe once I have grandkids I'll have a book for them to read!! George

    Ohhh My Strawberry Monkey

    This has been a great read. It’s great to see the beginnings of it all and the progression. You’ll definitely growing a big oak tree from this wee acorn o’ an idea. Have always loved My Strawberry Monkey (even though my pre-school kids are now all nearly grown up). Seeing all the reviews and feedback you get from your work is brilliant too. .....and I hate to say I told you so but, George

    Heehee heeheee! This is brilliant. Spoonfooliums do love making treats! I’ll need you to look over the kids book I’m writing (again and again and again and again, one day I’ll get there I promised). George

    Hello again! How are you all? Hope you’re keeping outta mischief and bring creative! Heres the appalled wee eejitus spoonfoolium. He’s appalled at the way his kind is used and abused, often kept in kitchens and hung from their heads. George

    Ahhh, we have another new eejit coming into the fold - eejitus frith-eldar emerging from the depths of the forest to see what all the rackets about. Not impressed with what it sees, it returns back to its slumber! It had to get up for a pee anyway....... George
  18. Hey folks, Ever since updating to v1.7, palm rejection is buggy as hell. I work using the Pencil and sporadically I am doing 'undo', creating nodes and moving the canvas while resting my hand on the screen. Wasn't like this before?!? Any ideas on how to fix this? George
  19. Mesmerising. Love how you did the eyes. A lot o' neat tricks and tips to take away from this! Thanks for sharing..... George

    And.... we have a new addition. Meet the eejitus uuuuuumiuuuum - A transcendental being, eejitus uuuuuumiuuuum is a wise ol' eejit who exists on a higher plane. Usually about 2ft off the floor, which is handy at times when other wee eejits need to reach something on the top shelf.....

    Oh my..... my most humble apologies for assuming! But I still doff my cap to you madam. Thanks again for interjecting and adding a wee bit to the eejits mythos (if there is such a thing!) Cheers, George

    A little monster selfy....

    Niiiice! Loving the striking colours, textures and effects you used to put this cute wee monster together. Great stuff! George

    Wait, wait..... what do you mean there's another one?!? Yup, patience can be rewarded and this eejit is a perfectly patient plonker who ponders and puzzles the whole day long. Meet eejitus ponderingitus George

    Thank you sir. If I was wearing a cap, I would surely doff it in your direction! I have said this before, but you have a way with words that I am very envious of! Thank you. George
