  1. Hey, while I was looking for new practice projects, I found a little windmill which I recreated. For me as a beginner, it was quite hard to deal with the colors, especially in the shade. For the speedart video itself, I prepared a color palette so I don't have to find the colors again.
  2. Hey, So I created a palette and exported them as a afpalette file. Unfortunately, it is not saved in cleartext. Is there a way to get the fill name (I created custom names) and their corresponding color in text format? Many thanks in advance.
  3. here I try to bring many useful tips for beginners, if you want to create illustration I highly recommend you to take a look around of my channel! thank you guys for your time! regards Jhon

  7. Hello designers, altough it's winter, it's never to late for an ice cream. So here's a tutorial on how to make an ice cream illustration. Enjoy:
  8. I was in need of lines with dots and triangles for a project. I started creating a few lines and then I encountered a whole bunch of problems with repeating patterns in the Texture Intensity Brushes in the Designer Persona. My triangles got squished, my squares became rectangles and I went into full pitbull mode and did not sleep until I understood what went wrong. These are my work arounds if you’re struggling with squished or otherwise deformed repeating patterns: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/101575-textured-intensity-brushes-and-body-repeat/&tab=comments#comment-545105. With the work arounds in mind I’ve created a set of brushes with repeating patterns that hardly show any deformation*. I was on a roll, so I created 114 in 9 families. I won’t use all, so feel free to use them. They're nice for stamps and borders and such. Enjoy! *) When using these brushes on a tightly curving curve or a sharp corner they of course do deform. Experiment with the brush setting for Corners to find the best solution for your project. The brushes all contain a centred line (in 3 widths, S, M and L) and repeating shapes and stripes above or above and below. The brushes with stuff above the line, but not under are therefore not vertically centred on the stroke. In the stripey families I added 3 lines with a different center point, those are marked with a suffix ‘mid’. They are symmetrical, the 'mid' version is vertically centred on the whole stroke. When you import the brush files you’ll see that a few of the brushes in the round families have different heights from the other brushes. The sources of these brushes have a different width height ratio (see the post linked above for the reason why). I added them to the brush files with a height that by default fits to the brushes with the standard height of 80px.

  9. Hi Affinity, I badly need the option to autosave - maybe a toggle icon or a prompt after a few minutes of working with a new file ("Do you want to autosave this file as you work?") which would also save history. I could then close anytime (without CMD+S) and all my edits are saved. I realize that there is an autorecover function, which I've rarely ever used since Affinity software is quite stable. The problem, rather, is my own stupidity. I sometimes open a lot of files to edit and then decide to exit them - the software asks me "do you want to save?" and certainly I don't want to save all these files I just opened (especially if I made some test edits). More than once this week already I have closed down without saving documents that I had been working on. Really terrible, and then it happened again. I try and train myself to look before I close everything, but my reptilian brain doesn't always comply.
  10. When you have a tablet and convenient programs, you can make your own designs. İn this video, we see how to design a special thermos mug, step by step, using Procreate and Affinity Designer programs with iPad Pro. I hope you will like it.
  11. Hallo, gibt es vielleicht ein deutsches Forum ? Is there a German Forum existing ?? Ich habe Fragen / I have questions I try in German: Ich Zeichne in "Pixel Persona" Problem 1: Ich habe ein XP-Pen Artist 16 Pro. Wenn ich Zeichnen möchte, wechselt dieser Ständig auf den Radiergummi.. Dann Switch ich wieder auf den Pinsel und irgendwann ist dieser wieder auf dem Radierer, das ist sehr nervig.. Wenn ich die Maus benutze passiert das nicht. Ich habe nichts gedrückt oder dergleichen. Hoffe auf eine Lösung. Problem 2: Ich kann den Druck des Stifts NICHT ausstellen. Wenn ich auf das Symbol klicke welches den Druck steuert (der Stift mit den 2 Kreisen), passiert absolut gar nichts. Ob ich ihn Drücke oder nicht ist egal, der Druck bleibt immer da. Sprich die Pinselgröße bzw Stärke des Pinsels andert sich bei Druck. Problem 3: Wenn ich mit einem Pinsel arbeite z.B. Schatten machen möchte und wieder über den Schatten gehe werden dieser Dunkler, da ich quasi drüber male, wie bekomme ich das weg ? Vielen Dank, ich hoffe sehr auf Antworten :-)

    I've been using AD since it was first published and been a regular participant in this forum. I have used AD to create the calendar shown below for a crowd funding project. The calendar feature 12 my paintings. here is a link.
  14. I have a file in Affinity Designer file on iPad Pro (latest generation) that won’t open without crashing Affinity Designer causing it to restart. Is there any way I can get my file back?
  15. Hi, I'd like to make symmetrical patterns on Affinity Designer but when I select the Vector brush tool the 'Symmetry' and 'Mirror' options don't appear on the context menu. They do, however, appear on the online tutorial video Affinity Designer - Symmetry and mirror painting. I've also noticed that I don't have the standard brush tool, instead the Tools panel only has the Vector brush tool. Have the symmetry and mirror painting options been removed, along with the standard brush tool? Jobe
  16. I know it’s been mentioned before but we REALLY need to have a lighter background for the assets menu in the iPad Apps. Or at least an option. As you can see in the screenshot it is Impossible to see dark colored assets that are imported in to the app. It is not practical to re-save (sometimes) hundreds of individual assets so that I can see them in the menu.
  17. Hi Affinity By Serif, I'm using Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer. I noticed that once I have imported new brushes, I cannot re-order brush categories or sort the brush categories by name. The most recent imported brushes are at the bottom of the scroll down menu in the brushes panel. Would it be possible to add such an ordering or sorting feature so that users can actually order the brush categories according to their own preferences? < I could not find such a feature/ functionality in Photo or Designer. > Would be nice. With kind regards, Bastiaan
  18. Hiya! I'm starting a new company from the ground and because its just me at this point (software development) I decided to do the logo and pretty much everything else myself =) Anyway, I'm not gonna mention the company name but to make sense of the logo lets say its called "DemoPlum", so the two predominant letters here (D and P) are used on the logo. I wanted something minimal that I can easily use as a flat logo on top of any color or background with any color variation. I know its not pixel perfect, I need to work details on it but what do yous think?
  19. After the 1.6 update, the expand stroke function that wasn't accurate with rounded rectangles before, now is completely broken (see screenshot of a rounded rectangle, circle, and a cog). Upd. It seems to happen only in certain affinity files, not all of them. Regards, Anton
  20. I know designer is meant for vector, but I just had so so much fun with it's pixel persona. I doubt if I'll ever use procreate much anymore, if ever. Not to mention if it's anything past a doodle or a sketch I always need the vector tools.
  21. In this video, I'm showing you how to draw a premium quality badge, using affinity designer. For more videos visit https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCUzuRWH5tnmt-OEOByR8S-g?
  22. In this video, I will show you, How to create a colorful vector flower / Simple Mandala in Affinity Designer.
  23. Dear everyone I recently started using Affinity products and I'm having troubles figuring out why I have incompatible color palettes in Publisher and Designer. Maybe I've messed up some settings or something, but when I copy color number from Publisher and paste it in Designer I get a different color. It looks like the same color is brighter in Designer than in Publisher. You can see it on screenshots attached. This is very annoying and I don't know how to get rid of this problem. I would appreciate your help. Thank you very much!
  24. I'm big fan of Affinity Designer. I use it daily, and not only for job, but for my personal joy. like it a lot. Hope this instagram stream will help me to get best of me and Designer. I hope you'll like it. https://www.instagram.com/adamratai/
