I'm trying to create this in AP: I made this in PS with four parallel, horizontal lines, using a basic, square brush with minimal angle jitter and moderate shape and size jitter. Very basic. The goal is to create subtle variations that will make the arrangement of the rectangles appear handmade and not mechanic. This is the closest I could get to it in AP: Obviously, this is unusable for my purposes. I'm wondering if I just don't know how to adjust the brush settings to achieve the desired effect. Here are the brush settings I used: The problems I've encountered: 1. The 'Rotation Jitter' setting doesn't seem to do anything on its own. It looks like it has to be combined with 'Rotation'; however, when combined with 'Rotation' everything is either rotated in only one direction or the angle variation is too great. 2. I'm either using it wrong or the shift modifier is glitching when used in combination with the brush tool for straight vertical and horizontal lines. I've tried: click>shift+drag, shift+click+drag, shift>click+drag. None of the key combinations work correctly and the closest result is this: For some reason Affinity insist on connecting the end of the fist line with the beginning of the subsequent one. I don't see a shift key modifier option under the 'Brush Tool' in the 'Keyboard Shortcuts' menu, so it's possible that, technically, this function isn't available in AP. Any suggestions and workarounds are welcome. I'm on Windows and using a mouse but have access to a drawing tablet.
