Here is a detail of a golden Tiara worn by Mother Divine in the latest painting that I am presently working on. It's painted in Affinity Photo and although the comments are Affinity Photo specific, this approach to digital painting can be done in any digital painting program. Comments welcome.
Hi all ! I'm proud to show you how AP is a professionnal tool. I'm near the end of the of a graphic design of a jewelry catalog for a major French retailer. It was a real challenge I want to succeed and it have been hard because of my 20 years of using Adobe tools ... but I did it ! Why using AP instead Photoshop ? Because of one particular thing : the non destructive effect when you resize au layer. This is really important when you compose a page with objects and you don't know what could be the their final size. In Photoshop this action is destructive and you loose lots of details by trying to find the good placement of your object, so you have to duplicate your object : one for the draft copy and the second one for the final placement ... and pray so that is the last décision of your costumer ! GREAT ! The second things are "move by whole pixel" and "force alignment of pixels" options, the best way to keep a sharp definition of your objects ! SO GREAT ! The third thing is exporting with Lanczos algorythmes ... SO SO GREAT ! At the end of this project, I'll post a long list of little features that could help us to be more productive with AP : management of selection (add to selection, subtract from selection, ...), improve fill panel, "new layer" panel like "adjustments" panel ... Jewels have not been retouched in AP because I need two things to do it well : 1- Oil painting filter. I make a personnal use of this filter to obten specific results on the internals shapes of a jewel. There is a free option for Windows but nothing for Mac ... Source files can be downloaded but I don't know to compile for OSX : https://yande.re/forum/show/2007?page=1 2- Improvments for gradient and color picker tools, actually they are too long to use. See you in few weeks !
