    To change a bit, some flowers... I had fun with these ones : from raw/nef (quite flat with horrible background) to adjustments in Develop and Photo Personas (I hope I did not already post the inflorescence, I could not find it herein). The 3rd is a close-up of the second. Amazing flowers
    Cheers,
    Patrick

    It has been a long time since my last post...
    I had a bit of time to "play" : I try to strengthen the texture/forms/colors in APh.

    I thought I would share my first Affinity Designer project here after the staff were so helpful with a few issues I had... 
    I work for a school and we needed to put together a plan for a playground development idea we had, knowing that my prefered software Illustrator was out our budget I opted for Affinity Designer. I had to approach things slightly differently but I am now more than happy using AD for any project that will require vector artwork at work.
    The software was easy to get to grips with, the staff on this forum have been very helpful too (thanks guys and girls ).
    Below are the development plans we created with Affinity...

    AP's HDR function is so powerful that you can make a city view look like the tiny Faller houses. Reality beyond reality.

    Work on the new font continues - 2nd weight, diacritics added.

    Btw, is there any possible way to get the split view by horizontal line (not vertical)?

    Yesterday I started to design new typeface in Affinity Designer. I really love split view to get quick overview of shapes and to control outlines. ;)

    Here is my first foray into Affinity Designer.  I must say I was impressed with the capabilities of the raster side of the program.

    Re-designed my Clients Music Artist's logo for a stronger and yet simple feel. The old logo might still be here (www.soundcloud.com/HolySKITXO)

    Here are some light edits I did on photo. Using BETA - I noticed it lags with images with high DPI.

    Hi!
    I am pretty new at all this, and still getting the hang of how to use Affinity designer. This is my first attempt a reasonably realistic, complete picture, and it seems a shame to spend a lot of time on it and not show anyone!

    Another of my all time favorite bikes. Unfortunately, never owned one but learnt to ride on a Velocette Valiant which I owned as a teenager.
    It was a 200cc flat twin with shaft drive. Found out recently that only1600 were made. Fairly happy with my illustration but I wish I could get
    more realistic chrome effects. Does anyone have any tips for this?

    To make a long story short; I dislike Adobe's subscription policies enough to live with the transient lack of features in AD, AP and Publisher. In addition I applaud Serif for working on a solid alternative, however difficult and time consuming that may be.

    Personally, I would be much more concerned about Adobe's market dominance & however they may be planning on leveraging that to extract ever more money from their user base via changes to their subscription model.

    Just to ease your concerns on this one, Serif has never been doing better in the 30+ years it has already been around and our user base is expanding at an increasing rate. With the release of Publisher, the adoption should be even greater... things are looking okay
     
    Sorry to everyone we're not doing things fast enough for, but don't keep beating other people up about it as it's not getting anyone anywhere and just makes the forum less inviting for people to seek help from...

    Vector portrait of a wolf - zero pixels, 100% vector. Created in Affinity Designer with Huion H610 Pro tablet, which was some sort of a struggle since the rendering of drawn lines was extremely slow. I may one day next year add more detail and correct errors, but for now I am fed up. Progress sequence and explanation in my blog:

    VectorWhiz got a reaction from Bartek in Affinity Designer - Bunny, detail from painting of Mark Ryden.   
    The fluffy texture is created excellently. But as retrograde said some of the edges are too hard. Don't cut contour lines of adjacent areas so that they bump flush; let the overlap and use the transparency and blur tools to make the transition are look natural, like I did in this 100% vector image in the face & neck against the jacket and shirt areas: 
    Detailed suggestions are given, because the rest of the drawing shows you have the skill to do this. I know such vector drawing require a lot of curve drawing and patience, but the benefit is that they can be rescaled to any size without loss of quality. Once an artists such as you set foot on this path, the challenge is the puzzling of how to make the vector drawing look like pixel art, while not copying the disadvantages of bitmap images.
