    For all the people out there that love peak 70's high-camp Vincent Price horror movies. Yes, both of you.

    The Dead of London

    I'm sure there must be a graphic novel in here somewhere. If I could be arsed. Addendum: Have added in another character study here. Not sure where all this is heading...

    Observed in Peckham, drawn in AD on my iPad and then animated in After Effects.

    British summertime

    Tinkering during a slow work week. Inspired by the rain hammering against my office window.

    Avengers mandala

    Something I’ve been putting together between other projects. Prints available (probably)
  6. Here's a time-lapse of me creating a new comic-style drawing. Mistakes and back-pedalling included. Final result: Authoring file: Enjoy!

    Screen redraw issue

    Guys, am getting some weird redraw issues with this file (enclosed) – see screen recording. Thanks Dan affinity.mov banner.afdesign
  8. ...neither of which enjoyed anything like the market dominance that QXP had in the late 90s, which is the period I’m describing here. So I’ll stand by my facts.
  9. Here's a story for anyone under 30 who might not have been there at the time (I have put it into spoiler tags so as not to annoy the TL:DR contingent):

    Screen redraw issue

    Yeah that’s what I meant. The Mac’s got 16gb main RAM. And just to underscore that this isn’t an issue related to underpowered hardware — I’ve got a version of this file on the iPad and it’s fully editable with no issues.

    Boatloads of objects – that's how I roll

    Screen redraw issue

    Hey - so I’m on a 2017 MacBook Pro, touch bar, top end 4gb AMD gpu etc. It shouldn’t be a hardware issue. And it’s only happening on this file, I’ve got other files that are way more complex that work fine. Very odd.

    Sausage party

    My first piece of work done entirely on iPad. Absolute game changer, thanks for all your efforts Serif. It was worth it. (Hi-res of this will end up on instagram later, once I’ve worked out how to reformat for square on iPad)

    One-legged guys need love too. It's 2018 after all...

    Sausage party

    Thanks! I do think iPad deserves its own space on the forum. I’m fascinated to see how far people can push it.

    Two guys, two girls and a pair of massive sausages. What more could you possibly want?
  18. Yes and no. Illustrator does everything, but not particularly well. For example, the chart tools haven’t been updated in years, the perspective grid is a nightmare of awkwardness, 3D rotate/extrude creates overly complex objects, and those new-fangled shape-creation tools are next to impossible to get your head around. The only thing they’ve added recently that I thought was half-decent was the puppet warp function. And yet I still haven’t used it because I keep forgetting it’s there. For now, I have to keep on using AI purely because it works well with After Effects. But I live in hope that one day soon I’ll be able to give it the elbow for good.

    So Affinity Designer, as it turns out, has a lot of potential for cel animation work. You can create a decent enough animatic in the bitmap persona using layers for onion skin, then just stick it all together in your editor of choice. My only request - could we have an "export selected layers as PNGs" feature please? That would save me having to go through toggling transparency and exporting one-at-a-time. animatic_scene2.mp4

    Interesting - I'll look into this. Thanks D
  21. Animated in After Effects admittedly, but all the artwork was created in Affinity Designer. It's all possible, you just need to think about the workflow a little bit. TV_kid.mp4

    I can't get on board with Wensleydale. It's too damn crumbly. Sorry, Wallace.
