    Catalonia by Motor Scooter Poster

    Pencils, lots of tracing paper, Indian ink and AD. I've created a series of these retro style posters around the theme of the 1960s, modernism, etc. You can see them all here: https://www.facebook.com/scooterola/

    Sausage party

    My first piece of work done entirely on iPad. Absolute game changer, thanks for all your efforts Serif. It was worth it. (Hi-res of this will end up on instagram later, once I’ve worked out how to reformat for square on iPad)
  3. Hello, today I've been having fun with the Tone Mapping Persona and I wanted to share these 20 portrait presets with you. Of course, you can use them on anything that is not a portrait, too. Enjoy! Antonio Santos 20 Portrait Presets.aftonemap

    A quickie for instagram

    Animated in After Effects admittedly, but all the artwork was created in Affinity Designer. It's all possible, you just need to think about the workflow a little bit. TV_kid.mp4
  6. I'm trying to figure out the best way to recreate this 70's font. The blocking out of the main white shapes is easy enough, but I'm struggling to find a way to accurate recreate the thinner black lines of this font. When I draw it free hand, it just looks off, as human error creeps in and the bezier curves just don't look right. I've tried expanding stroke, then adjusting the stroke on the expanded stroke layer, but it's still not right. Any advice?
  7. Hello fellow Affinity aficionados, in continuing my scooter series for Redbubble, here is my second retro styled scooter/travel poster. This time a Lambretta featuring a young couple scootering about Paris in the fall. All done in Designer 1.6 Check it out on my Redbubble site as well. https://www.redbubble.com/people/kevincreative/works/29498216-retro-lambretta-scooter?c=706027-wheels

    70s secret agents

    I dunno where these guys came from, but I wouldn't mess with them if I were you. Especially her on the right.

    Retro City Woman

    Inspired by the magnificent Joan Holloway character in Madmen, played by Christina Hendricks. Affinity Designer. I'm still getting to grips with some of the features. I started using the Vector Brush Tool (to make those silhouettes of the passers-by. I like the way it seems to auto-smooth the line, which is a feature I'd really like. Really well done to you people at Serif for making a full-on professional tool. I have no qualms about using this for client-work.

    Vintage Vespa Poster

    A 'vintage' retro poster for a poster/print for my special interest site www.scooterissimo.club I couldn't imagine pillion passengers riding sidesaddle on a motorbike now but they used to do this...
  12. Hi all, I'd like to know how to make a vanishing point grid like you would see on 80s movies and games. Anyone here know how to make it on Affinity Designer?

    64 Chevy Greenbrier Van

    Just completed this piece. A VERY stylized 1964 Chevy Greenbrier van in Designer. ;-) What started out as a client job became a personal piece after they decided not to pursue the project. I'm planning to build this in Blender eventually so I thought this could serve as a fairly tight 2d colour study and a chance to get a little more practice in using some of the pixel painting features of Designer. Also shown is a wireframe screenshot, layers stack and a closer view of the headlights where most of the pixel work was done. Vroom, vroom!

    Moggles Vector Book cover

    A vector illustration -There are no 'Pixel Persona' layers in this one because I removed them. They didn't seem to add anything worthwhile to this image. There are a few textures though -the main one being a photograph of one of the sandstone paving slabs on my patio. Another thing about the working file is that after a few raster images were added, the file became quite sluggish to work with. I'm not sure if I'm approaching this the wrong way. Since it's vector, perhaps I didn't need to create the file at 300dpi? Some advice is needed for that. I started with a sketch in Pixel Persona -that really is a great function of AD. I find it very useful. Best wishes, Kevin
  16. A 'vintage' poster made from a public domain image and a some textures scanned from old book endpapers and a back cover. The quote is a genuine reply to a question on the Guardian website some years ago. In amongst all the sensible replies, one Stuart from Bristol posted it. So, all credit to Stuart of Bristol who seems to be untraceable. Maybe he'll see this and make contact for I think he wins the Internet.
  17. Hi all, I'm thinking of ways that I can use old illustrations of mine and give them new life. I have all my acrylics artwork scanned and archived. A2 Poster: Coffeebot. Approved by the US Fed. Bureau of Caffeine Control and HM Ministry of Beverages.
  18. Hi everybody, 80s retro graphic design for a famous french DJ (and a friend). He asked me to illustrate his podcast channels. We have validated together a retro 80s design style with all the codes of this period. Here are the first two design of this project ... Fully made with Affinity Photo. Enjoy it :-) Note : I hope the 1.5 version will solves the issues I met during the process.

    Old Computers, drawn in AD

    My first vector work and my first time using Affinity Designer, some 1980's and 1990's computers for a project I'm working on.

    Retro sci-fi game poster

    This is my riff on the Photoshop tutorial How to Create a Retro Sci-Fi Computer Game Poster from the Spoon Graphics blog. With some modifications I was able to complete this entirely with Affinity Designer.

    The saliva squid

    Another experiment in lo-fi effects. AD more than holding its own at this point, despite me probably pushing my luck with file complexity :D

    More fun with half-toning

    Some more messing about while I wait for "real" jobs to come in.

    Double feature

    Was trying something different here, attempting to recreate the look of printed material. To this end I've create patterns of 1000s of dots to try and get that letratone/halftone feel. What's impressive is that Affinity Designer's devs aren't kidding when they say the thing never slows down or runs out of memory. It really doesn't. I think this number of objects would have made AI weep tears of blood...
