    Good morning everyone!
    I'm new to the forum, my name is Judith Vidal and I'm a concept artist.
    I've been using affinity photo for a few months for everything that is concept and illustration and this is one of the results of the experience, I hope you like it.
    You can see more work on my instagram:

    Added Export Preview Ehm, a microscopic preview? Weird when exporting poster sized documents. Not usable for even small JPG images. How can anyone inspect the preview for JPG artifacts, check gradients and details?

    I fancied doing something shiny, not too easy but not too complicated either, 2 weeks max, so decided to see if I could get this done. Shame it turned out to be such a horrible movie. There was too much background on the photo I used so I cropped it to something a bit more interesting.

    Aammppaa reacted to JET_Affinity in Contour tool   
    Agree. It grieves me to see new features released in a sub-par state. It needs not only multiple contours, but control over spacing rate, either uniform or increasing / decreasing. (Think of surface contour lines on maps.) See CorelDraw's Contour Tool. It's been around so long and so many use it that that's going to be expected as minimum functionality by thousands.
    As a minimal workaround, there should at least be a keyboard shortcut one could tap to commit a contour while dragging the tool, so one could continue dragging for the next contour, commit it, and so on.

    Aammppaa reacted to Angelize in Contour tool   
    This appears to be a good beginning to a contour tool, but not really all that useful yet.  I would love to see a setting for multiple contours where we could type in a number and get that many contours around the object.  Also it would be useful to be able to select each contour  set the colour of each contour individually and different from the object.  and  perhaps baking ( which is pretty much just converting to curves unless I'm missing something?) could have some settings to allow either the current behaviour or the creation of multiple objects ie the original object and the contours each rendered as separate vector objects.

    Aammppaa reacted to Patrick Connor in IMPORTANT: Annual Company Closure 2020   
    From 3 pm GMT on Thursday 24th December 2020 until 9 am GMT Monday 4th January 2021 the Serif company is officially closed. There will be some light coverage of the support channels during these 12 days, but most staff are taking time off whilst the offices are closed. Customer Service and Technical Support tickets will take priority and queries about bugs and beta builds will be picked up in the New Year. Unusually, the way the year has panned out a number of staff have not been on holiday for obvious reasons so some are also taking annual holiday now before this company closure, and so it is fair to say that from this week there will be fewer staff here on the forums. 
    Please bear with us if you contact us during this time and potentially for a short time after the annual closure, whist we deal with any backlog.
    Thank you in advance for your patience and we will make every effort to address your queries in the shortest time-frame possible.

    Status: Beta
    Purpose: Updates and Fixes
    Requirements: Purchased Affinity Publisher
    Windows Store: Not submitted
    Download: Download
    Auto-update: Available
    Hi,
    We are pleased to announce that Affinity Publisher Customer Beta 1.9.0.874 is now available as a download from the link above.
    If this is your first time using a customer beta of an Affinity app, it’s worth noting that the beta will install as a separate app - alongside your store version. They will not interfere with each other at all and you can continue to use the store version for critical work without worry.
    This beta is significant update from the 1.8 version available for purchase - we strongly recommend that you do not use this beta for real work as data could be lost and the files you save are not guaranteed to open in previous or future versions of Affinity Publisher.

    There is not - I also don't understand why clicking the node with alt pressed doesn't just toggle the node type.
    CorelDRAW has keyboard shortcuts for toggling nodes into the desired (specific) node type and it is exactly what I need. One key-press and I get exactly what I want. It shows understanding of how people work and what they actually need.

    ...and if you are working at a colour change for the guides, can I suggest you make it possible to remove a guide by dragging it out of the current view rather than having to zoom out and pull it off the side of the document altogether? I know about the guide manager but that’s an even clunkier method. Still loving the value for money aspect but with a few small tweaks, you’ll have Adobe running for the hills. Go for it!

    Aammppaa reacted to SuperSmasher in Contour not complete / enclosed   
    Thanks a lot! You were right. It was not a perfect circle anymore since I imported the shape from Inkscape to AD. And because of that the outline went crazy. I made a new circle and unified it with the shape and now it's good. Made me aware of other issues with the document. Thanks for that aswell!

    Aammppaa got a reaction from SuperSmasher in Contour not complete / enclosed   
    This looks like a glitch, perhaps caused by having multiple nodes at the same / very similar locations. I would have to examine the file to be sure.
    I am not sure why you have so many short straight lines approximating a circle. Was this shape exported from a different piece of software?
    I'd recommend redrawing this part of the image with the ellipse tool so that you get a clean line with as few nodes as possible.
  21. Thanks
    Aammppaa got a reaction from Chris26 in Designer looking for some Illustration advice   
    It's a really good start, but to improve I'd suggest looking at some reference photos.
    Also...
    Consistency in lighting.
    The reflections should all be pointing towards the same light source. Contact shadows.
    Whenever two things touch there is going to be a shadow at the join. Variety.
    All the droplets are exactly the same shape, and in a flat plane parallel to the viewer/screen. Which looks too perfect. Specular colour.
    The reflected light on the droplets is too white. It should pick up some of the colour of the material itself. Here's an example of an illustration that shows these points in action...
