  1. Recent paintings I've done. All with my personal brush set, link in signature.
  2. Painting with watercolor can be very difficult because I was fighting the urge to make it clean and trim. Mimicking the water spread and blots make it even more interesting.
  3. My Instagram if anyone wants to give me a follow: https://www.instagram.com/adriano_do_couto_art
  4. I have an image that I want to apply an adjustment layer over. I want to keep the image mainly black and white, but then I want to paint over specific colors using the In-painting brush tool. For some reason, whenever I paint the image, Affinity just wipes out whatever progress I made, for absolutely no logical reason (I suspect it's a bug). Here's a video I want to follow, for reference purposes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NXANeRRPBdw Any help is very much appreciagted.
  5. 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!
  6. Hey Everyone, Here is a timelapse video of me creating a watercolor still life painting in Affinity designer. I had a lot of fun playing with the different brushes and testing the different capabilities of the software. Enjoy! Here is the video from start to finish: https://youtu.be/y6l6-wOOf2A Let me know what you think? Thanks, Mike
  7. I've made a brush set for painting that I'm quite happy with, and it's available via Gumroad. These are the brushes I use for painting images like the one attached. There's a free sample set that you can download for free, and the full set. They're all textured brushes with custom tips that I've made myself from scratch, all with pressure, size and opacity sensitivity made to mimic traditional painting brushes. It's not a big set but there's enough brushes to paint anything you could ever want to paint, and they're optimized to work without lag even at very large sizes. https://www.gumroad.com/adrianodocouto I'd highly appreciate it if anyone who downloads would leave me a rating, as that's crucial for exposure on the Gumroad platform. Cheers!

  9. Hi all, I'm evaluating Affinity Photo (I'm a long time Designer user and absolutely love it) using the free 90 days trial before deciding on the purchase. I have an issue where a simple brush stroke in Photo will have jagged edges, it's most noticeable on certain stroke angles but it's generally very present. I am using a very simple brush, 80% hardness and 1% spacing. The problem does not seem to be affected by the stabilizer, or by using a tablet vs. a mouse. I tried searching the forums and I already made sure that my 'View Quality' is set to 'Bilinear (Best Quality)'. I drew a comparison using Krita, which displays a much smoother edge using an equivalent brush and stroke direction. Is there anything I can try to smooth those jaggies? Thank you.
  10. Hello everyone, I´m using Affinity Designer since a month or two and I´m wondering if there´s a setting or way to create multiple objects or vectors on the same layer. For example I´d like to use the Vector Paint Brush tool on one layer, without creating a new one every time I add a new vector. I know that you can group and classify layers, but that´s not really what I´m looking for. Well, AFD is not a ´traditional´ digital painting programme like Clip Studio Paint etc. (actually it´s totally not), but maybe you can use it as such in some cases. So, what I´m looking for is a feature to ´paint´ like in pixel-mode without ´separating´ each ´line´. I don´t really think that there´s a setting or feature like that, but maybe I´ve overseen something... (I´m sorry if there is a similar topic like that in the forums, but I didn´t find anything.)
  11. Import the output files of affnity photo into krita and photoshop respectively, and the results show that the affnity window appears jagged, which seriously interferes with the creative activities. The following is a screenshot In affinity photo In krita In photoshop
  12. Hello, (Sorry if my english is not perfect, not my first language) When i'm digital painting, I often need to switch between the brush and the eraser very quickly while keeping the same brush style, size and opacity. It's really annoying to just want to erase a tiny mistake, switch to the eraser and realize your eraser brush is in a completely different style and having to change all its settings just for one click. With the pixel tool, you can just press Ctrl to quickly erase, it's so perfect, I wish it was the same on the paint brush. It's one of the most awesome feature in Krita, the "eraser mode" which does exactly that (keeps your current brush setting) when you press E, and you can kind of do it in Photoshop with the "Eraser" blending mode of the brush. This goes for the brush tool in the Pixel persona of Affinity Designer, but also for the brush tool in Affinity Photo. I would love to see this feature go in, it's a tiny change but it makes a huge difference in the painting workflow Feel free to tell me if there's another way to have the eraser keep your paint brush current setting, i'm new to the software ! Thanks for the awesome software and the great price ! Alexandre
  13. Now on Skillshare here: http://skl.sh/2GjWV8q Note: I have renamed this class. It was "Create a Space-Themed Illustration". This class covers a range of easy to master skills, from cooking, to 3D rendering, to digital painting. Part 1 – The Pancake Moon In Part 1 of the class, you will learn how to: make pancakes in your kitchen using Affinity Photo, make equi-rectangular projection texture and bump maps out of the pancake's cratered surface using Cheetah 3D, wrap the texture and bump maps around a sphere, and render your pancake moon. We will be using Affinity Photo to create our texture and bump maps, and Cheetah 3D to render the pancake moon. Part 2 – Painting a Starry Nebula With Affinity Photo, you will learn how to: use shapes to create stars and simple lens flares use the standard set of Affinity Photo brushes to paint star fields and a nebula composite your moon with your starry nebula, and fine tune the lighting of your moon. Here is the permanent link to the class: http://skl.sh/2ooIWa9 Note: This link requires a subscription to Skillshare. Please use this link if you already have a subscription, or you are intending to sign up to Skillshare.

  14. I'm here in the hopes that someone can give me advice. My daughter journey started out many years ago when she started using Fire Alpaca on her Android tablet. When she started to get more serious, I bought her a digitizer tablet and she continued using the same software on her PC. However, she started to experience a hiccup recently as the pen (8,192 pressure points) would start to "digitally blot" whenever she tried to started a paint stroke. She got very frustrated and wanted to try other software. Well, I may have jumped the gun with my research (due to my limited knowledge) and came across the Affinity suite of software. She wanted to start using Photoshop and Illustrator but I suggested that before she (we) commit to a subscription model, that she try out Affinity Photo and Designer. So, I bought both of them for her as I thought this was the best alternative/parallel solution to the Adobe products. However, she insists that neither of the Affinity solutions allows her to paint like she can with Fire Alpaca. Is this true? Being very limited in my knowledge about the graphics/illustration world, I didn't think that Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator offered this functionality as well. I only suggested that Affinity as I heard that her school was going to be doing more vector-based illustrations and image manipulation. If the Affinity software doesn't offer her the same experience as Fire Alpaca, what alternatives are there? I've heard of Krita but I don't know if this software provides her the path toward her career goals. If the Affinity Photo and Designer does offer/mimic all the functionality of Fire Alpaca, can you offer any suggestions to various resources, courses, guides that can help her to transition? Thank you all in advance for any advice/knowledge. Signed, ...A desperate dad trying to win back his daughter's confidence!
  15. Hello there! I've been using Photo exclusively for painting. Here's a sample of my work. Give me a follow on IG if you feel like it. https://www.instagram.com/adriano_do_couto_art
  16. Good morning everyone! I'm new to the forum, my name is Judith Vidal and I'm a concept artist. I've been using affinity photo for a few months for everything that is concept and illustration and this is one of the results of the experience, I hope you like it. You can see more work on my instagram: https://www.instagram.com/jvidaldraw/ Thanks J Vidal.
  17. Digital painting brush work testing link https://gumroad.com/l/nsCEh
  18. Hello, I bought Affinity Photo, and just started using it yesterday. I love it already. Great to see an affordable and perpetual alternative to Photoshop subscription, and also good to see you have many good tutorial videos and a user forum. I also looked at Exposure software, and really like their Snap Art kit. Is it possible to get the same, or similar effect, in Affinity Photo? I'd really like to have this ability without the need to by a 3rd party program. All suggestions greatly appreciated...Cheers
  19. https://www.artstation.com/artwork/WKdLQv Was practicing different mediums by mixing 3D sculpting and Greasepencil in Blender and then finally finishing it with a 2D paintover inside Affinity Photo. Was a lot fun! Here is the original Blender version before the paintover for those who are curious.
  20. At first the tool cycle option was frustrating until I found out how to turn it off with a setting. Overall Photo runs far lighter than PS, the brushes are nice when they work and image resolution is always nice and sharp on export. The cons are that I can't simply import my PS brush collection and sometimes lines have weird jaggies/anti alias artifacts.
  21. Hello! My name is Mikołaj but you can call me Mik. I've been using affinity software since first release in 2014 for graphic design(any kind of user interface design and visual identity assets). Lately some idea popped in my head – I am using the same tools in the same way all the time, so to prevent some kind of stagnation I want to challenge myself to create different kind of artwork that I usually do. Goal: Creating artwork from scratch in a poster format using every tool that is available in the software. I invite you to enjoy this journey with me. 001
  22. I'm currently working in Designer to create vector artwork, and a few of the designs are getting a little more complex than I'm usually used to and I'm having trouble trying to fill in shapes - my designs are eventually printed onto posters and clothing. I have a few options when it comes to filling in but feel they are unorthodox or won't give me the desired print quality at 300dpi. 1. At the moment I have been creating the line work from an image, tracing the main outlines of shapes. This has resulted in a lot of open lines. I have then been keeping the lines in a separate layer from the colour layer. This also includes a lot of duplicating shapes, breaking lines and joining them together with others to be able to then fill the shape on the colour layer and turning off the stroke. Overall this method feels very clunky and effects my work flow, it also gets quite confusing, never quite knowing which outline is connected to which colour and any small movement of a shape will ruin the piece. I feel like this whole process could be improved with a 'smart fill bucket tool' similar to what is is AI. IS there a suitable work around for this missing tool, or is the the quickest method? 2. I haven't actually used this method yet, but it is something I have thought about quite recently which i think could improve my workflow in lieu of the magic fill bucket tool - however not sure if this will hamper the quality of my print by leaving Designer to colour in Photo. I have both Designer and Photo. My idea was to use the appropriate print template i have supplied for my garments all at the correct dimensions and at 300DPI to create my line work. I would then open the line work in Photo and use my tablet and pen to paint in the colours between the lines. I feel like this would improve my work flow tenfold, but advice regarding the print quality would be appreciative - or even if this is a poor method. Look at this is would increase the speed of my design work. I think I'm just scared/paranoid to leave Designer and have my Designs raterized as opposed to working with crips, sharp vectors. Its worth noting that at the moment my designs are flat colour designs without gradients/shading at the moment and my designs are exported asP NGs at 300dpi Many thanks in advance! Would also love to hear your own work flows regarding the filling of complex vectors.

Even when I was (still) very young and knew nothing about women, she was the most beautiful woman in the world for me. Nothing has changed much. The films with her have accompanied my life and so she remains in my memory. https://www.bodobe.de/zeichnen-liz-taylor/
