  1. Hey MEB, i've never played wipeout, just googled it :) nice ships :)


    This one i actually did on my own, wanted to see what i could come up with without looking at anything.. not the coolest ship, but it's getting there :)

  2. Hahah... I'm open to the idea :D 


    though my secret ambition is the crew from Homeworld will see this, and make me their lead ship designer.. lol, not really ;) but i adore them.. they will be a huge inspiration for this..


    I LOVE SCI-FI (nerdgasm)

  3. looking for the shape, colors, story... plan on making this full detail, with backstory etc... want this to be a series, lots of ships, different characteristics, classes etc ... :)


    this one is a light interceptor, security for a mining colony :)


  4. Hey there gang.. how's it hanging :)


    it's been a while since i was here.. and man, have i got to know Afinity Designer by now..


    simply put, i love it. its been in my professional workflow for a long while now, and i'm having a blast with it..


    can't wait for the new stable version to come out..




    Here's a illustration i did for us at ETL, to be printed on tshirts.. the print studio wanted something crazy to test out their brand new digital printer, so i rose to the task :)

    This "is" Belgrade, Serbia..

    (done in a very short amount of time, and will be revisited to boost the level of detail a lot..


    or, as seen on dribbble..





  5. Hello guys..


    I haven't been following the beta treads, maybe this has been talked about earlier, so sry in advance.


    Will it be possible for AD to export editable text to .psd? 


    I have been "testing" AD for a while now in web design, and its great. The only problem i have is that i can't switch to it completely because my colleagues who are developers either don't have a mac or AD, and can't work with my design and code it, so i need to do that part too :)


    So, will this be possible in a future build or something?


    p.s. I NEED A RULER TOOL sooooo baaaaad :D i think its a must for web design, to measure distances between objects in a fast way..




  6. Hoooolllyyyyy moly :O THANK YOU!


    I've been at it for two weeks now, no one responded :)


    thank you so much, this really means a lot to me!


    Ill give a shout out to you and affinity designer as soon as i get a chance, which will probably be very soon, ofc :)

  7. :D no biggy... :)


    Illustrator has something where you convert a rectangle or some other kind of path (didn't go that deep into this sry) to a compound path using cmd+8 .. and, that seemed to do the trick.. but its way to hard on my 2009 mac to open illustrator up and work with him :/ glory to AD for its lightness! 


    As for the line thickness bug (or not), basically, if you transform any path shape etc, with the move tool, that happens.. BUT when i move the nodes of a path with the node tool, everything stays uniform as it should be o.O


    maybe it has something to do with "scale  with object" in the stroke settings.. just guessing..


    Anyway, thanks for your feedback.. i really appreciate it!




  8. niiice! thanks :) I'll survive until tomorrow.. tested it out in beta now though.. works great.. 

    the only problem i had with naming was that i named everything with spaces :D so the outputed id looks like this id="something something", so from now on, i'm naming everything "something-something" to avoid code problems..




    Other issues i'm having right now.. just to report it, maybe you know it already :)


    when i would draw a rectangle for instance, making it have 2pt stroke.. then, if i'd resize it along its x axis horizontally, transforming it, in AD the rectangles stroke would be just fine, but when you export it to svg, the vertical lines would be thicker than the horizontal lines :)


    The image attached is the outputed svg graphic.  Do you maybe know how to avoid this?


    For now, I'm just redrawing every shape i transformed, and fixing the problem!




    other than that:


    - everything that has opacity, gets rasterized.. i'm guessing that svg can't support opacity :/


    - and, my biggest headache is the "rect" element in the code.. argh :) I'm working with animating the path elements, this can't be done with any other element, thats why i need to break every rectangle from a closed path to a opened one.. creating a mini gap at one corner, at around a bazillion % zoom :) hah.. fixed the problem though..  can a rectangle be converted to curves, but remain a path in the exported code? 


    Thanks for the quick responses guys..




  9. Hi, 


    I'm working on animating a svg graphic designed in AD. When i get the code, i need to organize it better for easier use.


    Would it be possible that the group/layer/object names remain as classes in the outputed code?


    When selecting the SVG export option, there could be a checkbox where you can select what names to keep, for instance, maybe you want only the groups ( <g> tag in the code ) to retain the names, and objects, paths etc, not to have the names..


    This would, cant stress this enough, save a lot of time! :)




  10. Thanks.. :)


    ..was hell of a lot of fun to make.. i'm eager to start a new illustration :)


    @peter, ty, i might just do that :)


    p.s. if you guys have spare time, just start drawing something in this style, i promise, you will get addicted ;)



  11. Hey..


    wip for a hero section svg illustration for a web project I'm working on atm..

    AD is wonderful for line art..


    I first saw this illustration style on dribbble by a great designer, heres the link.. so, hats off to him.. :)


    It wont look like this when I'm finished, i wouldn't want to rip off his work.. but i really wanted to make something similar..
