    Velocette Venom

    Thanks Kevin, A few good tips there and your Comaro illustration provided a bit more guidance. I'm working on a Ducati Pantah at the moment so I'll see if I can get the chromework and reflections a bit more accurate this time.

    Velocette Venom

    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?

    Triumph Bonneville

    Nice job on the Tiger 800, Alun. I have since fixed up the Bonneville's wheels, as a few spokes somehow went missing. I'm sure someone would have noticed eventually.

    Playing with Designer Beta and found a few useful improvements. My attempt at one of my favorite bikes.
  5. Walt, thanks for explaining the place images panel for Thomaso. I would prefer that the panel remain open until all the images have been placed or unused ones manually deleted. What do you think about it?
  6. Still frustrated that the place images panel disappears when another tool is selected, and unplaced pics have to be reloaded. Is anyone else finding that this slows down their workflow?

    Thought you might be interested to see what a total amateur can do with Affinity Designer. I'm not a professional artist, just an enthusiastic hobbyist, and am still learning the intricacies of Designer after switching from Adobe. My illustration isn't perfect but I'm pretty happy as a first attempt. Congratulations Affinity on great software, great tutorials and a sensible costing model.
  10. Downloaded Publisher Beta and had a first play with it. Very impressed so far. I have one initial suggestion which I think would help workflow and should be easy to fix. When opening multiple images for placement they are temporarily placed in new 'Place Images' panel next to the Pages and Assets tabs. As soon as an image is selected and placed it disappears from this panel and when a new action is selected the remaining images are removed and the panel disappears. It would be useful to leave all imported images in the Place Images panel permanently,for use throughout the document, until manually deleted when no longer required.
