This is the first thing I've attempted in Designer. It's bad. I don't know what I'm doing yet. I know.
Okay, baby steps. So first thing I am wondering how to do is regarding where the body and wing meet on the right. Right between them is a hard edge. Both the body and wing are different layers. What are methods I can use to just soften the edge between the two? In a non-vector paint program I guess I'd just use a brush and blur that part with a soften tool. Should I somehow copy just that vertical curve (just that portion) into a different layer (but grab a few pixels on each side), then do a Gaussian blur on that layer? Or is there some way to copy just that area into a pixel layer, use pixel persona and then use the raster tools (blur) to blur the area? I'm talking above my knowledge and experience here, but if you point me in the right direction I'll research how to do it.
