    Snow Brushes

    Who likes to play with snow? :) This are the two brushes I made and normally use (light snow and heavy snow) when I want to get that winter look. You can also check how I made the brushes and how to use them is this tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IlxXqCCx9AM Hope you enjoy them, Pedro Snow Brushes.afbrushes.zip
  2. So how I got this idea was I was trying to import some photoshop brushes and I realized some of the brushes had jitter and directional for example and I always wished I could have that in Affinity and there are many other combinations of dynamics that would be great. So the Idea is to Create a Brush dynamics Hierarchy where you can have direction and etc... etc whatever you'd like And I cooked this image up in an hour The plus sign is when you add the dynamics to its hierarchy, and you can change the percentage from the hierarchy window or from the dropdown that is attached, you can add a lot of brush dynamics to one. the number indicates how many have been added to the hierarchy (excluding the dropdown dynamics that haven't been added) the dropdown one that hasn't been added still effects the brush. Mostly they work top-down like templates you can sort, for example, if Random was 10% and Direction at 100% the random would add/subtract to the direction with a bit of jitter. Importing Photoshop brushes would have Direction at top and priority of what it can get from the brushes. Anyways I hope you guys like the idea
  3. There have been similar posts earlier, but as it seems like nothing much has happened, perhaps the topic needs a push? Anyway, it seems to be two general kind of illustrators when regard to having strokes and lines scaling with objects; the first kind is the methodical one, who prefers to build up the drawing first and adding brushes afterwards, which I guess is a natural technique developed from the early days of vector based illustration. Then you have illustrators like me, who are newer to the game and who finally learn vector through programmes like Affinity Designer on an iPad, using Pencil. It’s fast and smooth and intuitive and you can easily swap between vector and raster. That makes it very easy to draw almost like you would draw on paper. You thrown down a quick sketch in raster and continue in vector, adding quick brush strokes, varying the brushes etc. Finally, you add colours and might do some shading in raster as well. But then we have the problem with scaling with objects. For the first kind of illustrator it’s preferable that this is not on by default. For the second kind, it would be great if one could have it on by default. I think that vector illustration has developed a lot since the beginning and is still developing, thanks to the development of software and hardware. Therefore I think lots of people would have welcomed such an option in the preferences. It would have been enormously time saving.
  4. Hey guys......so I was working on my new course...and got the the lesson on making brushes.....sooooo I had to amek some brushes.

  6. Hello, Affinity community! The past few weeks had troubles importing brushes into affinity photo or affinity designer. The new update has fixed the problem for the designer. For the affinity photo, the problem stays the same. The program gets hung up while importing any brush. Please help. Thanks Gyan
  7. Howdy, Apologies if this is addressed elsewhere on this forum already, but I wasn't able to find anything. My issue is this: I purchased the "Grave Etcher Brush Pack" from the Affinity Store to use with Affinity Designer for the iPad, but I can't figure out how to install it (using the published instructions for how to install brushes). From within the app I click on the Vector Persona and then from the Brushes Studio I choose "Import Brushes..." from the hamburger button. From what I can tell, Designer opens up a version of Apple's "Files" application, from which I navigate to where I have the .afbrushes file stored (I've tried storing in various locations in Files, including Google Drive and "On My iPad). The file appears but without any "afbrushes" extension. The icon and listing for the file appears grey/gray-colo(u)red, as if Affinity doesn't recognize the file as a legitimate brushes file. I can poke, pinch, and swipe at the brushes file as much as I want, but Affinity Designer + the Files dialog refuse to consume the file. I've tried with other community-created .afbrushes files and get exactly the same behavior. So... how can I import an .afbrushes file into Affinity Designer for the iPad? Any information that I can provide to provide clues as to what is happening? Thanks! Regards, Jim
  8. [Designer/Desktop/Mac] Hi I've been working for some time on a large document containing many artboards (a picture book). Suddenly today all pixel brushes are invisible (history is clocking strokes). Using pixel layer, alpha unchecked, opacities fine etc... I followed tips from similar issues I found in the forum, and have done a full settings reset. No change. Can't use pixel brushes in this document. If I create a new document brushes seem to behave as normal. Any help would really be appreciated as I really can't see anything different to how I usually work. Thanks
  9. Hello everyone! I've purchased and downloaded from the Affinity Store the following brushes: Blast Powder Brushes by Ian Barnard DAUB® Watercolours & Washes which are supposed to be compatible with both Affinity Photo and Designer. They appear in Affinity Photo but NOT in Designer. I go to Brushes > Import Brushes and choose the right files. A window then appears, saying the "Brushes imported successfully". I've done this more than once and every time a number is added at the end of the brush-set name like it already exists and is being added more that once. In the image I attach you can see the 6 in the end meaning I tried 6 times to add the specific brush set but it is still not showing up in my Brushes. Is anyone facing the same problem? Thanks in advance!
  10. I'm a big fan of the liquify persona, one thing I would like is to have a rectangular or bar brush. When moving a far or body having a circular brush is not easy to operate on most things. It would work much better if a bar that can be rotated as needed was used to push the pixels rather than the round brush.

  13. I love Affinity Photo for editing photos, 3D renders and also be able to do some digital drawings. Recently, I have really noticed that I could really use an opacity slider in the Dynamics tab for brushes. It is now usually a standard for Image editing softwares and digital drawing software to have pressure sensitivity levels on opacity for brushes and I would think this one thing could make the software a lot better for photo editing and also make painting on Affinity photo very viable. It would also be nice if the normal Opacity slider was also in the general tab as well. These are just some quick screenshots that I took of the brush settings and just edited it to show what it could look like. I really hope "Accumulation" will be renamed to Opacity or the Opacity slider getting renamed to "Accumulation" . EDIT: I noticed Accumulation does do similar or the same thing to Opacity but whenever I would change the Accumulation in the brush editing, it would not effect the "Opacity slider" in the context tool bar making me very confused. I also think it would really really nice if there was "global pressure sensitivity settings" in maybe like the preferences and it would be just like a pressure sensitivity curve that can be set.

  22. Hello I'm using a drawing tablet (Huion 950p) and I want to increase my brush size without using [ or ] because there isn't a possiblity to change the brush size individually. Now there is another option, the alt + rmouse + left mouse, but as you can may guess, that's very complicated to do with a graphic tablet. Huion's driver doesn't give the possibility to use rmouse and lmouse on the same button. So is there a way to change the hotkey alt + rmouse + lmouse to only alt + rmouse? Kind regards Andy
  23. 1. Has anyone figured out how to sort brushes, to be able to have in a logical order. For now there is no order. it adds as i add. the last one added shows up last. 2. And on the right had upper side there is a button to create new category. could import brushes there. could not figure out from where?
  24. Is there a way on the iPad version, to reset the Basic Brushes after they have been edited via the Brushes Studio? (Other than de-install / re-install the app).
