  1. I have been drawing acrobats for maybe 15 years now using different techniques and with quite a few different apps including the serif apps. I decided to go back to my old draw everything in greyscale layers then recolour and add more detail on top of that since i have never tried that in Photo on the iPad and went nicely.
  2. Hello Guys! I already did a number of Projecs in Affinity Publisher, using Designer and Photo as Tools but also have done some Logos and stuff in designer itfself. But what I always wanted to do is Illustrations using my XP-Pen Tablet that I mainly use as a second Deskop right now, which is kinda embarassing. I also bought a number of brushes (like Frankentoons Neptune, Christis Comix toolbox etc). So I got the Tools, but everytime I want to draw something, I dont even try long because I dont really get how to start and how to use the Brushes right. Digital Drawing is very frustating for me, which why i dont try it very often. But I want to! My Questions are: - What is the easiest Starting-Workflow - Is there Any drawing tutorial/Udemy-Course specificly for affinity products, you would recommend? - which Program do I use???? Photo or Designer? - Any suggestions for my Tool-Layouts and settings? I draw mainly traditionaly on Paper with graphite, which is most of the time really satisfying because I can simply start without wondering "where" to start. Thank you for Helping me! Damijan
  3. Another of my occasional movie posters. This one took a bit of redrafting (and rewatching) before it came together.
  4. My latest work. hungry cat.
  5. About 40 years ago I had a Matchbox catalog in my hand, in which I saw an illustration similar to this one. It was probably part of an advertisement for a new series of miniature cars. I remembered it because I really liked the concept. Unfortunately, I don't know where exactly I saw this picture. I searched the brochures available on the web but couldn't find it. So I decided to recreate it from memory. The old ads were fantastic!
  6. Hi All. I'll be 76y/o in a few weeks (April 2023), so no spring chicken! Art has always been a self-schooled, serious hobby for me, working with colour pencils, water colour, water colour airbrush and oils. I have been comfortable doing fairly basic photo manipulation in PhotoShop for years, but dumped them for Affinity when they went subscription - and don't miss them one bit! So ... I thought, Why not give digital art a go with this wonderful new suite! Eighteen months in and - from absolutely nowhere - I have illustrated three children's picture books for two different authors. All have been granted Mom's Choice Awards, Honouring Excellence on all three and I'm working on a fourth as I write. I love working digitally. I'm a huge fan of illustrations by Beatrix Potter and I like to think my work is in that vein with a modern twist. I have attached a few favourites here. All created entirely in Affinity Photo ... Enjoy!
  7. This is basically a repost to carry it over to the Affinity V2 Forum Section: As discussed in several Post is the "Merging Down" function causing Anti-Aliasing in many cases. For Illustration this is an undesirable result, as it blurs your edges. Especially in Brush and Line Work this is making the "Merge Down" (and "Merge Selected") function virtually unsuable. I am not sure of all the things that cause layers to merge blurred but it is anyways too big a risk for an intuitive illstration workflow to use the "merge down" function with a hotkey (which is a often used and important function). For now the work around is: 1. Select the layer below the layer you want to merge down. 2. "Rasterise & Trim" it. 3. Select the layer you want to merge down and select "merge down" function. As I understand this is not a bug but a intended behaviour. For Photo Editing this is understandable. But Illustartion work suffers, because we need this pixel precision to keep the sharp look of the image. Especially on lower resolution images. Here are the mentioned Threads: Shout out to @NotMyFault He illustrates the problem quite extensively and easy to understand! Some Screenshots to show the problem:
  8. Hello everyone. This is my first time sharing something on the forum. I've been using the affinity designer V2 since its launch and I'm very comfortable working with it. It has made my work process much easier, and right now I feel hooked on it. I just wanted to share some illustrations of this last month with you and show my work process in the video. The serie is not finished yet but you can get and idea of how it goes... Best regards
  9. I’ve been working on a series of pieces featuring ludicrously over-dressed drag queens doing the housework (my “Domestic Goddesses” series). Here’s the first: Debbie Does Dishes. Hope you like her! (Created on Affinity Designer iPad versions 1 & 2)
  10. Hi, this is a piece of gay erotica illustration The Waiter Off Duty which I created in Affinity Designer. I'm selling its art print through my website screechyegg.co.uk. Would love to hear your opinion on my art and you can purchase the its physical art print at Purchase link. Thanks! 🙂
  11. I want to share my latest work. Trying to explore cute vector design. Timelapse
  12. I’ve been sketching a lot of wolves lately as a basis for this werewolf character design, so hopefully it’s helped ☺️ feedback welcome
  13. I’m trying to decide which works best… or wether or not he should have a tail
  14. Feel Free to share your feedback. Other works done with affinity designer here : https://dribbble.com/hayavadhan
  15. Hi, I’m Nora! I made this topic to share my illustrations with fellow creatives! I’ve been using Affinity Designer & Photo little over a year now, learning new things every day! Year 2020 end, I made a choice to follow my heart and become full time Illustrator / Surface Pattern Designer 🙌🏻, previously I had been working full time job in Tourism Industry. Even though I always did different crafts and projects next to my daily work, I never felt the courage before to let things go and be a full time artist. So here we go, I post some of my works here, these are from the end of 2021. Also if you would like to see my works as a full project, I have them here on my Behance: https://www.behance.net/psnora/projects I hope to hear from you others out there, if anyone had also similar story with me or if not , it would be still fun to hear from you.🎈
  16. Playing around with some lighting effects, using mostly gradients and a couple of Gaussian blurs in Designer
  17. I have years of experience in graphic design in the areas of marketing and advertising. Doing full illustrations like this isn't something I've done since art school, 20+ years ago. It is very satisfying.
  18. Hi, i want to share my latest works. Crown icons. Hope you like it. and also i have timelapse for this design.
  19. Hey! I'm sure there must be simpler/better ways to create vector textures but I have created a small tutorial on my website for anyone who wishes to create the effect... http://www.funkyimage.com/blog/creating-gradient-vector-texures-in-affinity-designer
  20. Hello Affiniteers! I am a long-time Illustrator user and now a recent convert to Affinity Designer and wanted to share what I've made with AD. I saw the sale that was going on about a month ago and decided to pull the trigger. Glad I did as Affinity Designer is a very well-oiled machine that already offers a robust set of features that have been brilliantly thought out and has immense potential for further features. Well done team Serif! One of the features that I was most interested in when I purchased AD was the isometric grid and its features. I started out with a simple project: The NES controller. It's just a cube at the end of the day so I figured it'd make for a great first project. The tools are pretty self-explanatory if you are familiar with other design software and everything felt incredibly intuitive. Anywho, I have a habit of droning on and on when I'm excited about something and Affinity Designer definitely inspires that side of me. So without any further ado, please enjoy some of my work. I hope you enjoy my work! I plan to keep on making more isometric controllers for the time being, with a Gamecube controller being the next piece. Like my work? Check out my Dribbble account where you can see more: https://dribbble.com/b_houtz I also just joined this hip new thing called "Instagram" recently in 2019 and if you're looking for an account to follow (hah) I would be honored to have you join me: https://www.instagram.com/sly_hound/ On some of these controller posts, I have thoughts on Affinity Designer for those who are interested in such things. Thanks!
  21. A ‘hawk man’ character design, sketched in Affinity Photo and finished in Designer on my iPad.
  22. Quick vector doodle: Violet. Struggling a bit for inspiration at the moment, so did a quick Malika Favre-style thing just to keep my hand in (based on the attached photo)whilst I wait for my next big idea to land…
  23. New vector work – Dia de Los Muertos I: La Calavera Catrina Today the famous “Day of the Dead” festival begins in Mexico. Definitely NOT to be confused with Halloween, the Day of the Dead is a three-day riotous explosion of colour and joy, where people all across Mexico honour and remember their loved ones and keep their memories alive. This spectacular festival is something I’ve been fascinated with for years, and seeing it first-hand one day is definitely on the bucket list! I’ve created two pieces to celebrate this festival, and my first one “La Calavera Catrina” (The Elegant Skull) is based on the traditional female costume for the Day of the Dead. La Catrina is known as the “Grand Dame” of the afterlife. She wears marigolds in her hair - believed to lure the dead back to the world of the living for the duration of the festival through their powerful scent and vibrant colour - and a collection of skulls representing the souls of the departed. She also wears the Sacred Heart crown, to represent the fact that the festival takes place across All Saints Day and All Souls Day – two minor holidays in the Catholic calendar, the quetzal feathers represent her native Mexican heritage, and the roses are an obvious nod to Frida Kahlo. I’ve also added some detail shots, the outline, and the original concept sketch. Hope you like them! I’ll be posting my second piece, La Danza Azteca, separately, so if you like what you see - keep a look out!
