  1. Hi, I am uploading some more of my free 'Nature' brushes for Affinity Photo. However, because of the file size, I have split them into twelve parts - Pt1 to Pt12. (I hope I don't get into trouble for uploading so many files, but I just wanted to give the other Affinity Photo users the brushes that I created and that I use myself). I have been interested in Concept Art for Movies and Games for a few years now. It is usually done in Adobe Photoshop, along with other programs like Corel Painter, ZBrush, Vue and Plant Factory, also Adobe Illustrator), all of which I have used. I have used Painter since version 5 (and owned by Fractal Design), and I have also dabbled with ZBrush on and off over the years. I usually create my brushes in Corel Painter, but I thought that I would create some 'Nature' brushes and create a few images in Affinity Photo to see how the brushes perform. Corel Painter works quite differently to Affinity Photo. There are some things that I like in Corel Painter, and other things about Affinity Photo that I prefer. The interface in Affinity Photo is far superior and logical. Painter has a very old-fashioned looking interface. I am also uploading a .JPG image (and 'source' Affinity Photo file complete with layers) that I created in Affinity Photo using the free 'Nature' brushes below. It's not brilliant - just an quick example image for other Affinity Photo users who may be interested in Concept Art for Movies and Games. They can download the original 'source' file to see how it was created by turning the layers on/off and dabble with the free 'Nature' brushes to create images themselves. I use these brushes myself to create concept art - mist, dust, fog, atmosphere, trees, branches, ferns, fungi and lichen, leaves, moss, shrubs and plants, forest floor, rocks, etc. I don't work in the industry - it just interests me. I love to see the work process of conceptual artists, their imagination, their techniques and creativity. Have fun! I would love to see anything you create using them. Hope you like them...

  2. Ik heb bij deze foto het geluk gehad, dat de bij op deze bloem kwam. Gelukkig was er een hek voor zodat ik kon steunen en wachten op het juiste moment. F6.3 Iso1000 1/500
  3. Hi, I have posted some free 'Nature' brushes for Affinity Photo. I also attached a Word file with step-by-step instructions on how I created my image brushes, also how to install them. The link to the post (also to the MS Word file, the Affinity Photo brushes file to download and the example brush strokes/brush names files) is below. Just click on it and it will take you there... I hope you like them. If you use any of them, I'd love to see the work you create. Enjoy!😃 DelN
  4. Now...THAT's a tree! I just love Nature.
  5. Just posting the link to my free 'Nature' brushes and 'Atmosphere, Mist and Fog' brushes. They are both split into two be cause they are quite large files. If you like them and use them, let me know and I will upload other brushes I use. Or better still, post artwork here that you have created using them (I'd love to see it!)
  6. Developed in DxO PL7 and finish with Affinity Photo 2.2.1
  7. I waited all summer to catch this female of natural aviation at the lunch counter getting her fill up. I'm glad Affinity Photo was there when the waiting was over.
  8. Photo of a leaf, Mirror filter applied, released and tonally processed, new background. All done with Affinity Photo.
  9. Several ICM fotos (ICM Intentional Camera Movement) combined as layers in APh (Layer mode Median).
  10. I have just finished 'Mountains in the Mist', which I did in Affinity Photo using the free 'Nature' and 'Atmosphere' brushes (plus a few images and other brushes). I have uploaded too a numbered set of JPG images from the first background sky layer 01_ to the last _FINAL so (if anyone is interested 😄) you can see how I created it.
  11. A normal pic, duplicated layer, soft blend, added selective colors and curves adjustments, plus a fine sharpening macros.
  12. A buzzard and a crow over City of Hamburg / Eppendorf Canon EOS 80D Sigma EF 150-600 at 600 1/1600s Handheld Sky smoothed with denoise and bilateral blur Birds treated with mild tone map (20% / 20%) and clarity
  13. Earlier this summer I took some photos of snails and modified them a little with Affinity Photo. Here are the results. With the first one I only edited the um.. "home" on the snails back a bit plus darkened the upper or more distant background using a gradient layer. The second snail got a little more dramatic change as you can see. I made the um.. "hut" green and the body a bit luminescent. Affinity products have really helped me advance as a photographer by motivating me. It's soo much more fun to take photographs, when you know you can make something fantastic (in more than one sense of the word fantastic) out of them. L.P.
  14. Another one. The clematis flowers have all started going to seed, and some of the heads are getting quite fluffy. I'd intended to make another merge or two, but the camera battery ran out! Technical stuff: Canon EOS750D camera, Canon EFS 60mm (96mm equivalent) macro lens, f/2.8, ISO 1600 (because I forgot to set it to 100 before i started!); thirty photos. I have the camera set to save CR2 (Canon Raw) and jpeg; for quickness, I made the first merge from the jpegs straight out of camera then adjusted white balance and vibrance, saved the afphoto file, then reduced the size and ever so slightly sharpened the image. (For some reason I get an error trying to upload the first file, but this slightly compressed version works.) Although I set the white balance and vibrance to give what i thought was the same result, as you see the two pics are quite different. I think I prefer the first one, but that's just me. And maybe a more contrasting background next time?
  15. Cropped a little bit the layer, duplicated it, then Levels, Curves, Exposure, Brightness adjustment and Gold Punch, Subtle Yellow/Blue and Enhaced Yellow macros by James Ritson (different levels of opacity).
  16. A small butter-fly having a moment of rest. I clipped the image, I added Levels, Vibrance, Curve and Selective Colors adjustment only for the right wing and for the body.
  17. Hola. Mi nombre es Juan José Pérez. Este es mi primer post para la comunidad y primer arte serio realizado en affinity Designer. Espero sus comentarios. Gracias! Hello. My name is Juan José Pérez. This is my first post for the community and first serious art done at affinity Designer. I look forward to your comments. Thank you!
  18. This is my first serious attempt to make something with APhoto. I used a photo I'd taken of a saltwater marsh in Maine. I brightened up the colors a bit because they looked dull. I hope I didn't overdo it. Then I replaced the sky and water, and added two Canada geese I found on Pixabay. The sky looks real, but the water and geese look pasted on because I couldn't figure out how to make them look realer. Good enough, I guess. I haven't learned to use all the tools yet. APhoto is great fun. I'm glad I bought it.
  19. Developed from RAW and processed with Affinity Photo 1.10.4 without any problem, Olympus M1.2 and 30mm/3,5 Makro
  20.
