  1. Hey, I try to use my gradient tool making a tiny planet image, and while using my gradient tool (ans us it to create a mask), the image in the background disappears behind it. Any idea? Here is a screenshot of my situation attached to this message. Christophe

    critique needed

    I often take some nice wildlife shots and am looking for advice on how I might improve them. This is one of an Egret and whilst I like the subject I am not sure about the water definition. And yes - I have just noticed the blue in the reed beds Any advice would be much appreciated. This is also a crop from a larger image so I do have more of the ripples

    [AD] Noses! -- Advice Needed

    Hi all. I just bought Affinity Designer on Sunday to take advantage of the sale. Except for minor edits to a couple of SVG files, I've not worked with vector art before (or really any art except my camera since I was at school about 24 years ago), and am enjoying it very much. I used to code software and considered it an artistic form of logic, and vector art seems to be a logical form of art. Well ... perhaps it's just the way my head works. But I did a couple of tutorials (one and a half anyway!) and am now working on a picture of two of my nieces. Intro over! Most of the work is just the foundation shapes and colours. Zoe's (the girl on the left) cheek line, laughter line, mouth (ouch, those squint teeth!) and nostril are just place holders. Her skin tones are what I was working on today, and I'm pretty much happy with. I realise I haven't yet done the shadows around her neckline, but at the moment I'm struggling with the nose. I just can't seem to get it right. I'm just wondering if some fresh sets of eyes might be able to see where I've gone wrong. Perhaps I've just been working on the picture for too long today. I'm attaching the picture so far, as well as the reference photo. And a close-up of the nose in case that helps. Any other criticism is welcome. They're both a few years older now (Zoe just left for university, and Emily is now ten), so I don't know if they'll like this. But I hope they'll like the gesture, and so I'd like to put the effort in. Tim PS Just noticed that maybe I need to add some more darker shades under the nose -- I've been concentrating on the ridge and sides. Unfortuantely I now need to get some work done and get to bed, but any input is more than welcome.
  4. Hi Just a quick question. How do I do this type of thing on Affinity Designer? (I'll see if I can attach an image, can't do it when submitting the topic) I'd like to explore better logo and icon designs but don't know how this can be replicated on AD. Thank you. Oliver
  5. Hi Folks, This is my first real go at a more complex (Complex for me that is) design using AD. The plan is for this design to go onto a tee shirt but I wanted to offer it up on here first to get some feedback and pointers. The title is "Bay the Force be with you", its my take on Big Hero 6 being crossed with Star Wars. The design is not 100% complete yet but the basic design is there and I thought this would be a good time to offer it up for some helpful feedback. The areas I have struggled with mainly are... 1> Symmetry - If you look closely you will see that the helmet does not sit central to the body, when I try to get it central it seems to throw the rest of the design out. This, I am finding, is a common issue for me when I try to create something. 2> Shading - I have no real idea how to perfect the shading on this. As you can see 90% of the image is a white colour which made creating definition between things such as the helmet, armour, body, arms and legs really hard. Any advice on this would be HUGELY welcome. Any other points you can see that you think are worth mentioning then please feel free. Thanks folks Mark Bay the Force be with you v1.0.afdesign
  6. Hi Folks, Not sure this post fits in anywhere on the forum but being as this place is full of really helpful experienced people I thought I would try it anyway. I have been playing around with a design (AD) for a t shirt I am looking at getting done. Would anyone out there be willing to have a look at my design and offer some "creative" feedback on how I can improve it. Every day is a learning day! Sorry if this post is not appropriate to the forum. Any chance a form could be set up on here for such exchanges between designers to share ideas? just a thought. Cheers Folks Mark
