    Sunset got a reaction from LilleG in Cropping destructively   
    I'm looking for something similar, although I've used the cropping successfully to make a circle into a witch's cauldron, there are times when I would like to use the knife version in other Serif products to cut an item into two- with a freehand cut, not always a straight line cut - and to separate the cut parts and use them independently.

    Sunset reacted to R C-R in Affinity on Windows (Surface Studio)   
    My guess is because by putting the sensors for touch pressure & tilt angle in the Pencil they did not have to build anything besides position sensing into the screen, which unlike the approach Microsoft took with Surface makes it much more straightforward & less expensive to scale to different screen sizes. That does mean the Pencil has to have a rechargeable battery to power its processor, but it is a pretty good engineering tradeoff, particularly since it makes tilt sensing relatively easy to do.
     
    Apple has a long history with this kind of technology, beginning with the Apple Newton they brought to market in 1993 after about 5 years of development. They did not invent multi-touch sensing but the release of the iPhone in 2007 popularized that refinement & the concept of gestures. Meanwhile, Microsoft had began experimenting with a different kind of interactive surface technology around 2003, which resulted in Surface 1.0, a tabletop computing platform first seen in 2007. Like some earlier research projects done by others, it used IR cameras to "see" objects & a projector to create the screen image. That eventually led to what is now called PixelSense, but it is very different from the PixelSense display used in the modern Surface laptops & Studio.
     
    So in a sense (pun intended) none of this is really new. Apple, Microsoft, & many others have been exploring the technology for decades, & to some extent they have all built on each other's work.

    Hi Sunset, fun piece!
     
    What I usually do to get around all of the potential sizing issues for posting here in the forum is I just zoom the view of the piece on my screen to something suitable and then I take a screenshot and post that. Rather than export it at it's actual size. It's quick and simple, nice and light.  :)  That way you can do the wires view or any zoomed in views you want to show as well.

    It's all vector, no raster, and the original jpeg size would have been over 6Mb. I'll have a look at it later. I did make it 12x12, always playing around in that size in case I can use some of the objects in CA another day.

    This was originally an exercise to use the Asset Manager which I love to bits, it lets my play with parts of buildings just like I used to play with my Bayko Building set a few years ago (before the days of Lego houses) and save the parts to rearrange them into a different building another day. Great fun! However, it is Hallowe'en tomorrow night, so I have to do my bit.....

    It won't be my used book, though, I've just just been browsing through the tutorials/projects and I am amazed at the detail and depth and the care that has gone into this. :)

    Hey guys and gals here is a repost I added in the Workbook thread. Now that the book is out I can finally post my contribution.
     
    Rather than uploading here I thought I'd just include a link to my Behance page discussing it.
     
    Enjoy!

    If anyone is interested in a closer look at my workbook tutorial contribution follow the link below. 
     
    I uploaded a few images of the finished piece (for the tutorial you'll have to grab the book :-) ...along with some information on the tutorial in general and some of what you can expect from it and the book. 
     
    I was honoured to be asked to participate in the project and I can honestly say the book is gorgeous and chock full of great stuff, art and information! The Serif team has really created a beautiful, well designed user manual that just happens to double as a coffee table book!

    I fell for this, too! Go back a few pages to the green page at the beginning of the chapter - that is the URL (affin.co/...) that you want, although it doesn't look much when you get there, everything you want for the book is there :)

    I agree entirely, but because they deliver it, it is in their system and therefore they "know about it" - and they link their book lists with libraries so that information and cover pictures can be shared, so I think it's just how it works. You disclose to Amazon that a book exists and they log it, in effect.

    Have to love insomnia, working my way through the Affinity Designer Workbook, picking up little things that I hadn't noticed before and finally understanding the purpose of artboards! I've designed three colourways of the logo for my new imaginary company and I am waiting for my imaginary client to choose one and pay me some imaginary money. Imagine is the key word with this new book, it banishes the 'white page" syndrome and feeds my imagination.

    I bought the book today. Was wondering if anyone can let me know how Jonathan Ball's chapter looks like - is it detailed? I did his Skillshare course and I'm determined to incorporate his style into my illustrations.
