    The ultimate size of the super Sauropods is staggering..you would not want to get under its feet!...or it's gassy rear!I...Yep lots of nice clean oxygen and vegetation (no-flowering plants) looked up the Oxygen hypothesis..and was just reading this article on the National Geographic (Article link) (A bit off topic..but dino is one of my favourite subjects!)...Made me see if there were any larger than the Titanosaurs (article link)...(article link) ...Argentinosaurus huinculensis (50-70 tons)..wow just wow...all those burgers!

    Inktober 2017 Vector Reworking

    Interesting! Thank you for your comments...It would always be difficult to directly compare two different illustrative mediums..Oddly for the 2017 Challenge I found the sketches to 'evolve' over the 31 days...tending to take on the appearance of pencil sketches like 'juicy' rather than 'ink' with greater reliance on shading/lighter tone Also, the originals were mostly completed in Sketchbook Pro which has a 'smoother result' if that is the right word for sketching with the Wacom Pen. Resorting to a sketch was the only way I could complete the challenge and not all drawings would be suitable for re-working as vectors. The drawings for 2018 Challenge, which unfortunately I haven't completed yet (6 to go)! were entirely done in AD. I tried to move away from the sketch appearance as it was not really the objective of the Inktober Challenge. These are much more detailed and 'darker' I tried to mimic or get much closer to some original paper based ink drawings...using Isograph's rather than the sketch like appearance of 2017. I am not sure I would agree concerning the vector conversions...I think it is just the nature of the medium. There is a tendency to create flat or 'glossy' images using vectors and I have been trying to get away from that and explore integrating texture into detailed vector objects...which can be quite time-consuming and can have mixed results. That said I really like the method shown recently on Affinity Spotlight for Christi du Toit here Here are a couple of others I have not converted Inktober 2017 Word Prompt 01:Swift Inktober 2017 Word Prompt 30:Found
  11. Yep sort of...I was dragging panels around...as you do...but I noticed there are a couple of inconsistencies between apps..I think I should have addressed the query to the publisher beta really! Most of the panels do what you expect with the Windows multi-tasking snapping on ..except that I noticed in Publisher 'Text Frame' does not...It acts as though the 'when I snap a window, automatically size it to fill available space' is toggled off....minor thing really....I must be going mad with all these new features..getting hard to keep up....I can blame Windows though, quite happily! AD looking good by the way..working very smoothly on my machine!...looking forward to the release.....
  12. Just a couple of questions regarding panels 1. Is it by design that some of the panels fill up the whole screen if you drag them to the top?. 2. I also seem to be able to drag a panel off the bottom of the screen completely. I checked in Publisher to see if it is the same...but in this app it seems to be more dependent on the panel....So with 'Text frame' panel it re-snaps to top left but with swatches it fills up whole screen!

    New Brush Dynamics [1.7]

    Trying something a bit crazy today.... Test combining multiple base textures 1. I am not sure it is working very well!...doubt many people would try this... however... Testing multiple base textures by using drag and drop to pull in brushes that already contain a base texture into the sub-brush panel....really to see what kind of results you can get. But there seems to be a couple of issues... a. 1 brush +2 patterns (1 in Master/Parent brush + 1 in Sub-Brush)=very difficult to see any pattern enhancements from the sub brush; even with increasing the space of the nozzles or adjusting the size scaling. I was wondering whether to do this is just counter productive and is just being cancelled out..or a base texture in a sub brush is just not very effective b. OK attempt to use a sub-brush with 1 pattern and removing the pattern from the master/parent brush panel...works but not as clear as I would have expected. c. Set nozzle on sub-brush to 1 pixel (to see if interfering with output)..very little change d. Try something to test if being picked up : Use predefined brush;add sub brush;change sub-brush pattern to solid black (so if being combined=black). paint with brush using d= still get master pattern..was expecting a black solid brush...but still get master pattern e.Try 1 master +2 sub-brushes with base texture pattern= no change looks like only master brush pattern is being used Does this mean that this just does not work and is by design or is it a glitch?... Sync size/spacing and blend mode 1 . Just a bit 'odd' this one (video attached..)Sometimes when you toggle the sync size and sync spacing and/or blend mode....then edit the base texture (invert image button) the sync(size+spacing) and blend mode get inverted/reverted.....or switched off if on... Re-tested with other brushes...has not re-occurred yet! file attached with 5 test brushes test multiple patterns 1.7.zip
  16. Afternoon, I must say how impressed I have been today with the new functionality added to the Raster Brush Dynamics...Thank you for all the hard work....brilliant!.. Spent some time today creating a new brush set to experiment with the new functionality..Released the set to forum in resources: Vegetation Set 3 for everyone use! destroy! abuse! I came across a few issues but nothing major...no crashes! yet! Drawing/painting smoother on screen overall Notes: 1. The combined use of the brush dynamics + sub brush menu works well but I had a few problems getting the Sync Size and Sync Spacing checkboxes to be immediately responsive. When adding an additional Sub-Brush and 'toggle/check/uncheck' changes don't appear on the sub brush menu until you return to the parent brush and adjust the size or spacing. 2. Sync Size and Sync Spacing checkboxes can re-activate if you return to parent dialogue box 3. I have had a couple of instances where the new dynamic controller/ramp for brush nozzles became sluggish and was unable to drag the nodes around on the line 4. When you add multiple sub-brushes there can be a slight delay in the activation of the brush...1/2 additional brushes work well and it's a good way to manipulate added nozzles separately (as I found today!) Is there a limit to number of sub-brushes you can add before it starts to slow the operation of the brush? 5. Sub-Brushes>Drawing>dropdown..select options (at current Nozzle; behind current Nozzle; at end of stroke)..works well except when you set 'behind current nozzle'..The thumbnail created in brush menu looks to be the opposite..i.e sub-brush stacked on top. Would be nice to toggle the sub brushes on/off from list... Useful to have sync toggles on brush context bar
  17. Link Brush Threads 1. Added a linking thread connecting my Crazy Brush Library (from a request!) but feel free to add other links if you wish 2. Add Links rather than assemble all brushes into 1 thread..that would just take ages!#@ Brush Library Sample sets from personal 'Affinity Brush Project' 1. Current uploaded Samples from Brush Library (Forum Sets are not full library versions!) 2. Placed into categories for reference. 3. Ignored older sets/threads (4)...as have been updated by newer an better versions (Mostly relating to Texture Brushes/hatching and Dots) Texture Brushes Texture Brush Packs x12 [Organics] Texture Brush Packs [Organics #2] Texture Brush Pack Fur Set 1 Texture Brush Packs [Hatching Version 2] Texture Brush Packs [Dots] Texture Paint [Mixed Nozzle Raster Brushes] [Sample Set] Texture Paint [Mixed Nozzle Raster Brushes [Sample Set] [AD version 1.7] Test version of Sample set using 1.7 Brush Engine Texture Paint Effects [combined Brush Set] [AD version 1.7] Test version of Sample set using 1.7 Brush Engine Combination set using Texture Paint 08 and Project Set 08 (Organics) Brush sets.

  18. Yep! raster sets should be fine...Vector versions AD only (different personas) Only issue is 1.7 versions not backward compatible..but you can open any in AD 1.7; but not 1.7 brushes in 1.6 versions

    My First Ever Motorbike

    Amazing piece of work... As for Complexity...well I haven't reached the stage where AD cannot handle it....I don't know how many objects were in poison or shy but it's probably 10's of 1000's...Poison slowed down towards the end..as was very complex but I just exchanged large groups of objects for embedded files...and off you go again..... Embedding files was useful as editing in parent file was not affecting the original ...Tended to avoid using mixed raster/vector for blends..maybe that helped!

    Poison

    Thank you I appreciate your comment as well... oh dear!...I am really sorry...I will get to it..... honest! I have been busy though..just with completing Inktober 2018 (which is not complete!), and making some new brushes 1. Building a large 'ink' brush set which at the moment has 8 subcategories..eek..it's going to be some time unfortunately.. 2. Doing lots of experimenting with new brush engine ...nice! 3. 6 more raster drawings for inktober 2018 to do yet... ...I think with hindsight I should have mixed up the size a bit to make it easier 500x500mm drawings are sloooow! I did add some new drawings though there are 25 in the thread I think!....
  24. Added new Texture Paint Effects brush set and integrated into previous thread: Experiments are here Used to test Drag/Drop feature of new brush engine...but made a new brush set to play with

    New Brush Dynamics [1.7]

    Just thought I would say the drag and drop brush feature works really well and is a big time saver..thank you... Build a new set to test it.. Combined brush set using new 1.7 engine No Glitches..stalls or crashes..brilliant!
