    Design is creative, palette is great and detailing is the cherry on the cake. The video is very informative. Kudos! I wonder how you captured your actions.
  2. First six stages of vector portrait Crystal Reed as Sophia Falcone in Gotham. 100% vector, zero pixels. Created in Affinity Designer. Work in progress. More detailed progress sequence: https://communicats.blogspot.com/2019/05/crystal-reed-100-vector-portrait.html Stage 7. Progress will be slower as I wish it to be due to a lack of time. Stage 9 - working on accents and shadows Stage 12 - accents, highlights, shadows & lip creases Stage 13 - hair background drawn Colour testing
  3. Hi Gabe, thanks a bundle. This solved it.
  4. After installing the latest version AD after opening, shows a slew of corrupted files (the entire width of the bar is filled with corrupted files), all named 'untitled'. When closing them I am required to save them (there is no way to not save them). When I do, AD crashes. It suddenly closes without giving an opportunity to send crash reports. I tried starting AD while holding the Control key, which does not change the situation. I am running AD on Windows 10 on a 16GB RAM machine with an Asus Mb and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Ti GPU. Please advice.

    Penguin - How to soften edges?

    Here's a trick: Duplicate an object that you want to give some hard edges and some blurred edges Move the underlying object inside the one above it (select in the Layers panel to make certain you have the right one) so that the top object serves as a mask Do not give any blurring to the object on top Blur the underlying object to the amount of choice, using fx - Gaussian blur Move points to outwards of the top image to make an edge blurred Move the nodes of the blurred underlying object outwards where you want a hard edge - the top object masks it Hope this helps. Take care.

    Smarty Studio : Our Project (made with Affinity)

    Your sense of graphical ethics keeps amazing me. The compositions, choice of palette and skill to make it work are excellent. Kudos!

    Applying an Astronomical process to a terrestrial Image

    HDR has a wealth of enticing functions that make it difficult to stop (editing). It's all a matter of preference, but artists can take it anywhere. That is the brilliance but also potential pitfall of advanced graphic programs. In this case, I like what you did; the result is appealing.

    New to Affinity

    Keep going. You've found the best graphic software at the best price around.

    It's the little things

    I think you shouldn't put yourself down. I would say your work would fit in there flawlessly.

    Working with Affinity Designer

    It is visible that you obviously have above average drawing skills. Glad you put them to use in AD. Looks great! Soon you won't be missing AI at all, I guess.

    Greek word for love

    I've seen people post similar problems on Facebook. Exchange between different versions sometimes seems to result in problems.

    Typography is a specialist trade. Mind the kerning. The visual space between the I, N and E for instance, is tiny compared to that between the L and the I. If you even that out (more space between the I, N and E that is) it would be easier on the eye.
