  1. In this Affinity Designer tutorial, I will show you how to make text look like metal. For more Affinity Designer tutorials makes sure you subscribe to my channel. Watch the Video
  2. So far, PSD import in Affinity Designer has been pretty stellar. Export is my current problem. I created an email design in Affinity Designer, then attempted a PSD export with both "Preserve Editability" and "Preserved image precision" set. I've tried this both from our office server and from a working copy of the file on my desktop. Both give me an empty 2kb file and an "end of file" message when attempting to open in Photoshop.
  3. Meet Blue Bunny, he's a happy little fellow... :) Continuing the Bunny series from some client concept sketches that never got beyond the proof phase. Thought I'd try something different on this one and play with some pixel painting texturing and also attempt at adding fur to this little guy. The fur is made up of repeating individual groups of "fur shapes" copying, rotating, skewing, repeat... each with transparent gradients and blur to add softness and hide some of the edges and yes it was a lot of work... ;) Really loving the ease of vector and pixel workflow!
  4. I did not know that you could share with the community work done. I want to share with you my first job with Affinity Designer. Criticism and advice are welcome (if also explains how to get with Affinity Designer better. So the program learn more) I also share my account of Behance, but now is empty until I put up. Thanks to all (: Behance: www.behance.net/elzekah
  5. Hi all, just some doodling here trying out painting inside of shapes in Designer. Started playing with Paolo's blender brushes he so graciously created. When using them in conjunction with the smudge tool you get some really nice mixing abilities. In the call out shape for instance I painted a mixture of the 2 main colours then applied some "blending" using one of Paolo's spatter blend brushes. It just spatters using the underlying colour and doesn't put any new colour down. Changing the size of the brush changes the size of the texture it paints. For the eyeball, (I didn't start out to do an eye it just ended up that way) I used a mix of painting and blending especially in the white of the eye with the blood vessels and texturing... then in the iris I painted inside the circle shape laying in the colour in the general areas and using Paolo's blenders to really gave it a nice complex feel. I usually add a .01 gaussian blur to take the hard edge off the shapes. it tends to soften the paint work a bit but it's a reasonable trade off. On the donut-pie shape I was just playing with a nice painterly play of light and shadow. The blenders are great for adding that "painterly" feel with tons of control. Again by reducing the blender brush size the blend effect gets smaller and more precise. This is all in Designer, which for me is probably where I will spend most of my time. The fact that I can get these type of results in a "vector" app is incredible. The hardest part of all of this is knowing when to stop! :D
  6. Work in progress. Started out as an avatar, but has become an exercise in using Shapes. Evil-cat.afdesign
  7. A small scene that I'm working on, whenever I have some spare time. There is a deeper story to this scene...maybe someday this will turn into a one issue comic. haha. Anyways, I made this one in Affinity Design and added a little bit over color cast in Pixelmator (I could have done this of course also in AD, but I just got a free copy of Pixelmator and decided to try it out.) Cheers, Mike
  8. I so busy and so out of touch that I could not figure out what with all the eggs and bunny talk. Duh easter is next month. I so cluless! time to start pumping out some eggs and bunny drawing I guess!
  9. I got the pen tool working. Now to figure out how to add color!
  10. I have just completed my fist piece of 'paid' branding in Affinity, its for a local Party Booth company launching very soon.
  11. Take a person out of a picture and putting it in another picture is probably one of the hardest things to do in an image editing application. The fact that I can do this inside a vector application excites me! You use to have to go back and forth from Photoshop to illustrator to do this while combining your vector and pixel workflows is just amazing. I am really digging this hybrid approach to design and image creation! There just not enough hours in the day! Thank You Affinity for putting the fun back into the game! I can't waitto see what the future of this application has in store for us!
  12. Helllo Affinity team, I wanted to make you aware of a slight bug in the color value input panel. When I try to manually input CMYK or any other value types the value adjusts, but like it has a mind of its own....not at all the value I inputted. The value sliders also have a slight issue wanting to jump to its own value input when I try to do it that way. Crazy as it may seem....it doesn't always do this. Help!
  13. Affinity designer is my first AI type program Ive used (as AI is too expensive) - heres a quick logo mockup for a design competition - they're an electronics company... Still wondering when they're or if they already have put a save as png option? z-icon.afdesign
  14. I just started trying out Affinity Designer and I was trying to "ink" some pencil art I scanned in. I'm using the "brush" tool with the variance set at 100% trying to get good varied line widths. I trace the line and the preview, as I'm drawing the line, looks correct but when I lift my stylus, it's nothing like the preview. It's either all thick or it snaps back to being a thin wispy line. Even changing my sensitivity in the Wacom preferences doesn't seem to help much. Am I missing something? I'm using a Cintiq Companion Hybrid and also trying it with a Wacom Intuos Pro. Same thing happens on both. Macbook Pro 15" (late 2011) with 16GB RAM running Yosemite (completely updated)
  15. First of all, great job with affinity designer! Kudos to everyone involved! Today I needed to open and make some alterations on a PSD file which I had sent to large format printing last year. I noticed after saving it in .afdesign format that the selective colour layer reverts back to "relative" mode. I unchecked the "relative" checkbox, saved and closed the document. Upon reopening I saw that it reverted back to relative mode again. Seems like it doesn't save the selective colour adjustment layer in what is called "absolute" mode in adobe products. It's a tiny bug, but it becomes a bit annoying when you have several adjustment layers on the document. Off topic P.S. 1024 px brush size doesn't quite cut it when working with large format stuff. Especially when tying to soften up the pixel layer masks. I hope you guys give us the option to use much bigger brushes down the road. Cheers, Haluk
  16. Well hello there, I'm lucky enough to have been blessed with a lovely baby boy the last few weeks so haven't had much time to spend on this image. I really wanted to show everybody the characters though, so I've bunched em up and here they are! I've started a blog incase anybody's interested, http://craigearnshaw.net Why not follow me! Its pretty bare at the moment but hopefully I'll fill it up over time! Anyway thanks for having a look. Craig.
  17. Hi, here are some designs for my personal project: an iOS app for anglers: https://www.behance.net/gallery/23018151/iFishBook-App-Design (Still fighting with some AD bugs & UX inconsistencies, though :()
  18. Overdone topic I know, started this a week ago with the news of that the shoes are to going on sale this year. It then found its way to the top of my "Avoiding real work todo list". (Don't worry, Pirate Cat riding a polar bear is NOT forgot and is in build)
  19. http://i.imgur.com/27CZ4S8.jpg First time at butterfly wings but pen tool is so easy to use on AD. Plus gradient tool makes it easy to look so much more interesting. Also love 3D tool and outline fx. Awesome, awesome programme!
  20. So, I created this owl as part of one of recent class lectures update on compound shapes. I had a "hoot" while creating him in AD!
  21. I'm trying to make a painting brush, to create a painting in AD. It looks as if I'm going in the right direction. I'll make another to do more detailed work, we'll see what we need later on For the moment I'm only doing b&w paintings, I will dive in later to make them mix colors. This is actually fun to do !
  22. Here's a flyer I built in AD for my ex girlfriend, who's a chef. It was so much fun not being stuck inside AI :D
