    Coup de tête

    I've made a few changes to the original image and I've started to work on a few more of these in the The Coup De Tête project. The Coup De Tête project (French for headshot, is a project based on human behaviour and the mind, a project where I explore and try to understand human beings, how we're perceived and the battles we face. Allan created in Affinity Photo on iPad Pro.

    Coup de tête

    Hi all! I've recently started work on a new project using Affinity Photo on iPad Pro called Coup de tête. This is the second in the series so far, I always like to get people thinking about my work and create that emotional connection. What do you see?

    Affinity Photo for iPad (1.6.10 - Beta)

    Hi Andy, Looking good so far on my 11", thanks for the fix, upgraded on launch day...Is there a way to have the home indicator, the thin grey line at the bottom of the screen auto fade away like it does in photos when watching a video?

    Thank you Hokusai, Yes, I agree we all have our own little passions, I cut down my hours at work and just studied, read, researched and put in a lot of hard work, along with passion, determination and the desire anyone can achieve their dreams. The font is one I downloaded, can't remember, at some point I may create my own. Allan
