  1. Just bought Affinity Designer for macOS today, and had a nice supiese in Affinity Photo for iOS :-) I made a document in AD, with text on path.. saved it and opened it in AP on the iPad. and discovered I could edit path and edit the text, even if the AP for iOS doesn’t have this option, I mean to create text on path in AP for iOS. So I made a document in AD with some sample text on a path, saved it in the iCloud Drive, and when I need text on path in AP for iOS and dont have the Designer available as it’s not for iPad yet (hopefully soon).. I can just get them from this document :-) this also means it shouldn’t be to difficult for the dev team to implement this feature for AP for iOS.. I guess :-) Maybe a little clumsy explained, and obvious for some.. but a nice surprise for me :-)

    HB pencil brush - request

    Hi guys and girls! :-) im looking for a good HB pencil brush, free or payable. Any good sources would be appreciated :-)
  3. The app has been working fine for a couple of weeks, but this morning it crashed.. I reopened the app, and started drawing again. When I was going to go back to the gallery with all my files, it crashed again. Tried to create a new document, drawing a line, and going back to the gallery, crashes.. I tried to restart the iPad, but same thing continues to happen. It just crashes.. When I’m in gallery, it looks like from the preview thumbnails that my changes appears, but when I open the document, it has no changes.. I have not installed any new apps, only updated YouTube from AppStore. iPad Pro 12,9 (second generation) iOS 11.4 Affinity Photo 1.6.7 Now affinity photo is useless.. I can’t continue to work, as it only crashes every time I go back to gallery, and it doesn’t save the changes I did in the document. What to do? :-)
  4. Very often when I'm opening the AD on my 2017 iMac, it asks if I want to restore.. I quit the program in the normal way, and I don't get any crash report.. I'm not sure if its a bug or what happens, but if I get the answer, I guess its because its crashing?
  5. The thing is, it happens with different files.. but only on my iMac. Using the same files on my MacBook Pro, it never happens.. (knock on wood) and there are no specific files. :-) And it’s strange, because I always save.. but I’ll look into the crash reports.. :-)
  6. Is there any way to change the sensitivity of the nodes and the control points in AD for iPad? Ofthe when I choose several nodes, and want to move them, it ends up I move one of the control points, unless I zoom out a lot.. and if I zoom out a lot, it can be a little difficult to move the nodes in a right way, as I don’t see the whole picture. I guess it’s a little “get used to”, but it can be a litttle hard.. even to choose some nodes if they are too close. If this isn’t explained we’ll enough, I’ll try to make a video of my “problem” anyways, so far I mostly love the AD for iPad :-)
  7. Im not sure how useful or good they are, but I made some vector brushes.. useful for me, and if anyone can use them, here you go :-) i made them for the love of vintage lettering styles, and I use it for backgrounds, like the old Sanborn Maps style.. Anyway, as I’m quite new to brush making, I’m sure they can be improved, and if I do, I’ll update them here :-) hope it it will be useful for some :-) and they can be downloaded from here.. feel free to give feedback.. good or bad is welcome as long as it is constructive:-) 276ccm Vintage Lines.afbrushes

    Vintage Lines - Vector Brushes (Free)

    A little more in my research for achieving the Victorian style.. Three layers of different shadowing, but with the same lines.. hatching and crosshatching :-)
  10. Hi all, trying to work on a new vintage look poster for a friend, but I’m getting a little lost.. been working on it for a while, and done a lot of changes, and starting to be a little blind.. would love to get some feedback on what’s good, and what’s not.. too little, too much, in your opinion :-) the tezt will probably change color and get some shading too. i have some ideas, but.. Don’t pay attention about the bottom part, with the transparent banners, they will be changed and redesigned.. just put there for a test.. :-) Both fonts is designed by me.. wasn’t quite sure which one to use.. anyway, if you have some input, would be interesting to hear? :-)

    Vintage Poster.. input, not finished..

    Thanks @Simon Degay I have thought about it, but I’m not a Designer by profession, and my time to work with these things (what I really want to do) is very limited.. but hopefully I’ll be able to one day :-) I usually have to sneak in some time in my workshop, when wife and client think I’m actually working :-) But mostly I’d say it’s looking and studying old designs. Look at how they are built up, how they use the lines, shadowing, ornaments and stuff.. every nigh when going to bed, I search for inspiration.. But as soon as I get the chance I’ll look into a tutorial video :-) But I’m not going to say anything.. hate hearing my own voice. Anyway, I made another little piece today.. thinking to start a Behance project, for the vector assets I make.. :-)

    Vintage Poster.. input, not finished..

    Hi @Simon Degay, I have these brushes, and I used them on the test, two pictures up.. but I think they are too rough and not so very useful. They even have some bugs, and if you make a high resolution, I don't think they look too good.. but then again, they are not very expensive, but not sure I would buy them again.. if I knew :-) For the poster (last result) I made my own brushes. Not trying to brag, but I think they look a lot better and are more useful.. :.-)

    Trying to design some more vintage style assets..

    Nail studio design!

    And at last.. why is this the only line without capital letter? If it is a continuation of the previous text, I think it should be more close.. but as I said, I don’t understand what is says :-)

    Nail studio design!

    Not sure what all the text says, but my eyes says it’s more space between the text here (look the red lines) than the rest.. but maybe it’s a reason if I understood the text.

    Nail studio design!

    In my personal opinion, the text isn’t very well placed in the wooden frame.. I think it’s way to close to the frame edge, and the space between the top text and the rest is way too much. The beige part (bottom right corner) takes way too much attention and makes the text and the pictures disappear. For me, the design, even the “nails” (if it is) in the logo, disappear a little in the crowd. I don’t usually go and fix my nails tho, but I’m not sure I would choose this place, if I did.. business cards looks alright tho :-)

    Kind of vintage Christmas card

    @VectorWhiz Maybe it wasn’t well explained :-) The font was designed in Procreate, and vectorised in AD, then made into a font in FontLab. Even if I love both AD and AP, some times I prefer to draw something in Procreate.. due to some brushes and tools they have. All the rest of the design is done in AD :-)
  23. Christmas is not my favorite time of the year, but fun trying to make a Christmas card, with a little vintage style.. didn’t have time to make the photos look old, and should maybe have put some more details, but.. the font I’m in process of designing. It was sketched out in Procreate, then vectoring in Affinity Designer. so so merry Christmas and happy new year all! :-)
