  1. Hi Affinity team. This post is a cry from the heart. I have been using your programs for a long time and I really like them. They are great for designers and photographers, but not for artists. Below I will share my vision of how Affinity Photo can be improved for digital painting. <<I immediately apologize for the quality of the text, I used google translator for translation >> Brush Tool Update Creating brushes from selection Instead of one New Brush from Selection item, it's much more convenient to add two items for each type of brush. No need to w
  2. The Protect Alpha option is hidden on small screens. It is very counterproductive to have to click the arrow each time in order to reach it (My screen is a Wacom Cintiq 13 HD touch). Sometimes I also forget that it is selected since it is hidden. Please make more space so that it isn't hidden or convert some of the options to icons (eg lock, mirror, symmetry). I ignored this for months but it really disrupts my process. The padding on some of the percentage selectors could be less to make space. Eg Opacity, flow, hardness all have pace to the right of the percentage. Thanks.
  3. Here is my issue. I've been starting to learn digital art, as a random hobby, so don't worry if there is a lot of fine detail involved in solving my question or if "just find what works for you" is the proper way to go, please just try and give me an answer to the following question, as I'm sure others have struggled with this before and the solution probably isn't that hard, I just can't find it. I included the settings for the most important brush at the end of this post, both for PS and Affinity. Problem: I downloaded some Photoshop brushes for digital painting and they feel great in p
  4. Been experimenting with using Affinity Photo for digital painting recently and it's been loads of fun - even made some new painterly brushes in the process! Here are a few tentacles I illustrated to start the week off on the right foot. http://www.instagram.com/christidutoit
  5. I am trying to make it were the opacity of my brush is controlled by the pressure I'm putting on my tablet. I looked around and found this https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/70576-opacity-pressure-control/&_fromLogin=1 But I tried what was said and shown and still doesn't work.
  6. If anyone had asked me short time ago what would I go for if ditching Photoshop for digital painting, my normal answer would have been "Affinity Photo". But then one day I found myself painting in Designer's pixel persona and loving it too! I'm faster every time and understand a bit better the brushes, which for whatever the reason have always been a bit of a hard to handle and tame subject matter for me in Serif products. I am currently researching on different species for better and more effective workflows when it comes to science communication and illustration. This is an attempt to i
  7. This time a Humboldt's squirrel monkey from the Saimiri genus. Affinity Designer pixel persona 100% - Roughly one single brush pressure on, pressure off.Challenging to get the colours always right as I try to pick form the wheel and not using the colour picker. It helps to train better the artist's eye. I also leave here this time-lapse I have created. I explain a bit some differences I find when painting in Designer vs Photo.
  8. Hey folks, I have painted an item card for a trading card game we are developing in class - entirely in Affinity Photo! Constructive criticism is always highly appreciated!
  9. Hey guys, First of all I'd like to say that I think what you are doing is great for the industry! You're really shaking things up and becoming actual competition for Adobe. I became interested in your products during the recent Affinity Live 2019 event. One thing that I've noticed as a strength of yours is that you value your customers opinions and are always trying to innovate and improve your products (I'm blown by Studio Link for example--Adobe should be worried). As a long time Adobe user (specifically Photoshop) I ran into a few roadblocks that have made my transition frustrating or
  10. Here I demonstrate 4 principle elements that make up a successful digital portrait. These include: How 3D form is structured, Facial landmarks, Colour Luminosity Comments welcomed . Instagram> @clarkejohnsen
  11. Here’s a look at my Affinity Photo setup, using two views of the same painting that I am working on gives me the flexibility of zooming in on one image to work the details while being able to see the immediate impact on the whole image. This approach really works well given I am using a 5K iMac monitor. Comments welcomed. joined_video_d523871d91bc4ffea3bd7f8bf2663e61.MP4
  12. One of the features that would make the iPad version of Affinity Photo much nicer to work on is the ability to quickly flip the canvas horizontally using a gesture. I feel that this is a very important feature and I use it a lot in other apps. I use the horizontal flip when I'm drawing because it helps me see mistakes and makes inking/painting much easier since it gives me different angles to work on. I can imagine that this feature would also be helpful for photo editing because it makes it easier to check the work for any mistakes or areas needing improvement. So, please give us a gestu
  13. Here is my latest digital painting , hand painted in AP. Comments welcomed.
  14. HI everyone. Here are a few images from my digital design goddess theme . These images were hand painted in Affinity Photo. Let me know what you think. Gregory CJ
  15. Here is the final painting that I have been working on for some time. It's entitled " Goddess of Light" The entire piece was painted using Affinity Photo. Comments are welcomed. Enjoy!
  16. Here is my latest digital painting, entitled "The Caduceus" inspired by a Gandharvan rain raga I witnessed. I have included the original drawing and an intermediary step in the creative process. I started the digital painting in Photoshop and completed the final digital painting in Affinity Photo which has now replaced Photohop as one of my favorite painting software.
  17. Hi I was trying affinity photo for drawing and digital painting. I'm currently using photoshop. but affinity seems really better. i was thinking of switching to AP. but the drawing & painting need some works. I had a few suggestions as well. a few days ago blender updated the grease pencil with nice brushes and tools that would be nice if AF could have them too. please take a look at this part of the video . you can smooth a brushed line with a tool just dragging on it. you can make it thin or thick while keeping smoothness as well. drawing a curved line
  18. Old Racers Hi Affinity Community. My new personal work painted with Affinity Photo. I hope you like it. More work in progress pictures: Old Racers on Behance
  19. Hi Affinity Community. I would like to share my first work made with Affinity Photo. I hope you like it. More work in progress pictures: Old Wheels on Behance
  20. Hi all, I can't quiet figure out which Affinity app is designed more towards digital illustration. My guess it's Affinity Photo, but I am not quite sure because Designer seems geared towards vector illustrators. So maybe Affinity Designer is also meant for digital painters (as in non-vector illustrations)? Is the brush engine exactly the same for both apps? When I talk about digital painting, I mean something like this photoshop painting from Craig Mullins: http://www.goodbrush.com/
  21. Hi there, guys! Long Time I don't share anything. Well, today I wanted to practice some digital painting (still trying to get myself on it, drawing is way easier), and, the fruit of that is this work in progress, some weird humanoid being. Best regards!
  22. This is probably a silly question, but if you wanted to use Affinity for making digital paintings, starting with a photograph, which program would you buy - Photo or Designer?
  23. Hey guys - I'm really keen to start painting in Affinity Photo. I have bought Astropad to use it with my iPad and downloaded loads of abr. format brushes. I was surprised, though, at the lack of information/content online for use of AP for digital painting/sketching etc. I wondered if anyone could direct me to any tutorials or resources that you've come across that might help me get started and learn more. Many thanks Chris
