Hi all. I've switched over almost completely from Illustrator and other vector graphic programs to Affinity Designer. It's been a much less painful experience that I'd expected, and I've been having a lot of fun with the app's features. Having just finished my first formal concept design for a website's splash page, I thought I'd post it here because...Affinity! Anyway, hope the colours brighten your day!
Well, I think I am slowly getting better at this program. I discovered transparency mode which really helped my blue girl. (3rd try drawing from a sketch) I also slapped on a couple of texture images that I photographed from my monoprint works. As for the girl in pink, well, she still needs a lot more work. More contrast mostly, and I'm sure I am making her much more complex than she needs to be. (2nd sketch attempt) . . . . You /don't/ want to see my first attempt at drawing something from my sketchbook in Affinity . . . . *right?* --Would masks help retain the original edges of base shapes? I have a lot of overlapping edges with layers shifting on me when I reshape them to make shadows. I think I'm about ready to get back to compass roses and spaceships, which just incorporate simple shape patterns and are super fun. :-) It's interesting to discover how easy it is to make geometric forms digitally with the right program. Love love love the shape tools and convert to curves tool. Command J is growing on me too. If you guys have any tips or criitiques, lay on, McDuff! design.tiff
