Hi everyone, recently my group publish a review paper, and I did the final images in Affinity Designer (which were slightly edited by the journal editor...). If you can, have a look and give me your opinion -- I'm seeking constructive criticism, so I can improve Thank you
This time a Humboldt's squirrel monkey from the Saimiri genus. Affinity Designer pixel persona 100% - Roughly one single brush pressure on, pressure off.Challenging to get the colours always right as I try to pick form the wheel and not using the colour picker. It helps to train better the artist's eye. I also leave here this time-lapse I have created. I explain a bit some differences I find when painting in Designer vs Photo.
If anyone had asked me short time ago what would I go for if ditching Photoshop for digital painting, my normal answer would have been "Affinity Photo". But then one day I found myself painting in Designer's pixel persona and loving it too! I'm faster every time and understand a bit better the brushes, which for whatever the reason have always been a bit of a hard to handle and tame subject matter for me in Serif products. I am currently researching on different species for better and more effective workflows when it comes to science communication and illustration. This is an attempt to improve painting fur... More to come! Full project including time-lapse here: : https://www.behance.net/gallery/93107969/Scientif-illustration-Mammals UPDATE ON RESEARCH> So, now I am trying to replicate this craziness with the so called vector brushes in the Designer persona. I reckon the guy on the left needs a comb! hahaaha!! Anyways.. one step at a time, I'll get him one. The one on the right is for comparing both versions side by side. Brushes galore!!
Created these two last week as part of a current project I'm working on. It's done fully on Affinity Designer with a mixed workflow of vectors and bitmaps.
