It would be very cool if Affinity could design some OPTIONAL Plugin's for the Fine Artists that are working digitally now. Corel Painter is cool and there are so many others that are also available of course, but a one stop shop always makes life easier. It would be very cool if Affinity were to start creating Plugins that people could download if they are interested in the Fine Art look. There are a lot of people that have no reason to clutter or grow in complexity their software. They are happy with the photo editing, etc. But then there are those of us that boot up Corel Painter (or similar software) to do a nice painting. IF Affinity could create something that offers different paper textures right off and paint brush options that mimic the various FINE ART painting options like they have in Corel, it would be very cool. I for one love just relaxing and doing a painting at times when I am done with a project but it is with Corel (or even photoshop). It would be wonderful to give an optional Plugin or download to give use Fine Artists more to play with. And just for the heck of it, here is a piece I did a while back with Painter. I have tried a number of things and I still can't get this clean or wonderful of an effect with Affinity Photo. Granted, I am sure I will figure out something but dang if it would not be so much easier to have a "Canvas" texture to start with and a selection of Paint Brushes including some that truly give a good "Oil Paint" feel to them. Just sayin'
I use Corel Painter, but often for sketching first before I consider doing any painting. I do this because I want to have a digital copy of my sketches and I don't want to have to scan everything in all the time from a paper+pencil pad. When I do use the sketch pad, I will often scan that sketch and drop it into Painter to play with. Clean it up, rework it, etc. Sometimes I take that sketch further and play with painting it using Painters transparent page feature to sketch and paint over another image as well. Can your software incorporate more of the Corel Painter like qualities. Tools that can incorporate pressure of digital pens/paint brushes, etc. Perhaps giving people an opportunity to use their Stylis pad more with your software. Yes, I do understand that your software is for Vector art, but incorporating something like this feature with Vector art opens up a lot of options. Drawings that start as a sketch then evolves into clean vector art like comic books, architectural renderings, and other various Graphic Art styles. Having pencils, pens, and paint brushes that accomodate pressure, style, and skill beyond just click click click offer a great deal more.
