Besides using A. Designer tools to create more elaborate illustrations, I also like to use it in more simple designs, like for instance cartoons. I created “Doodle with Sign” as a comic side project, also inspired by the “Dude with Sign” viral street performance. The visual concept is defined by minimal ink lines and a vintage graphic aesthetic. The 2nd. image is the intro image I created for posting this cartoon in slide mode, in certain social networks. Note: “Olive Thistle” is my alias for cartoons. Enjoy!

Cealcrest posted a topic in Share your workPracticing with @Frankentoon's comic book brushes and color and gradient swatches, so decided to start with something simple. Funny how when you try something you realize how much more you have to learn about it. Gotta work on those line weights...
Dr. Fate - comicbook colored inked artwork
Pixel and Poly posted a topic in Share your workI colored this inked artwork by Walter Simonson in Photo. The art I had to work with wasn't very high res so I needed to resize and adjust the lineart slightly. Walt is an amazing comicbook artist mostly known for his incredible THOR run. Comicbook fans, enjoy!

Glyphs posted a topic in Older Feedback & Suggestion PostsHi, I am using Affinity Designer to letter comics, and I think there's (at least) one function missing that could spare us a lot of work: Many hand-lettering fonts have to be used in lower case, so first, I would need an option that would put text in lower case. If this option could be expanded to all the text in a document (or in every selected documents when you add scripting to your apps), that would be great, but that's not all: when you letter comics, every character has to be in lower case save one: the capital "i" which has to be "

Comic - Two Old Guys
mstarlin posted a topic in Share your workThis was my first try using Affinity Designer. I am not really an artist or designer but several months ago I decided to try to use Photoshop to create comics. I made a couple of comics. They were fairly simple, but I liked the results. Then I got a new retina MacBook Pro and the lack of retina support in Photoshop CS4 basically made my older version of Photoshop unusable. So I decided to look for an alternative that didn't require a subscription. I discovered Affinity Designer. It required a different workflow than Photoshop. I used Actions in Photoshop to do a lot of the bitmap texture fills. But the Gradient tool in AD makes adding bitmap textures so much easier. I used the warp function in Photoshop to change vector shapes. The curves function in AD gives me similar results. You can see the two comics I made in Photoshop, for comparison, here: http://www.behance.net/MarkStarlin
affinity designer Comic Logo done in AD
CartoonMike posted a topic in Share your workA very quick hand-trace of my original logo sketch for my upcoming comic Thingies: First I placed the hand-lettered concept sketch into its own layer. Then, I just made simple pen lines (with a stroke of 30 pt/px) and made each individual stroke the curve I wanted. Next, expanded strokes and added shapes together to form completed letters and then with the "i" letters I did an combine on each one and the letters they overlap. Finally I made the whole word a combined shaped. Added a conical gradient to a layer underneath it all to make sure the combine/compound shape was the way I wanted it. Pretty happy with it. BTW, Thingies is about sentient salamanders and I really kept their biology in mind when I made them into "funny animals". Depending on how Affinity Publisher works, I may want to use it to letter my comic rather than ComicLife (which is a fine app, but somewhat limiting in how it can fill shapes with bitmaps and such.
