This is an attempt to create realistic vector skin texture. It is not perfect yet, but it is getting there and I am still fiddling with it. I attached all files created in both Affinity Photo and Designer that I created in the process. I am doing this because I like to be able to create realistic vector portraits like this one for example: https://communicats.blogspot.com/2018/03/vladimir-putin-vector-portrait.html. I started with a skin texture photo, then created a vignette around it to give it a black background and from Affinity Photo exported in png. Next I imported in Affinity Designer as a New Textured Intensity Brush. I saved the Photo and Designer files with history, so what I've done to reach this point is visible (they include some intermediate tinkering as well). This is the exported png from Photo. Different types of skin texture can easily be created by replacing the reference image. This is what it looks like in Designer after drawing a few lines with the vector brush. The lines are given a Passthrough filter in the Layers Panel. I grouped the lines and applied a 3D fx to them. And these are the lines drawn with the vector brush in the outline view. It would probably be easier to allow the lines to blend better if Designer would include a feather function, but I think I recall seeing that is in the future roadmap (which is one of the functions I eagerly await). If I succeed in getting better results I will post them here. TEST soft edged - Realistic pores 06.afphoto Realisti skin texture TEST.afdesign
