Hi,
Thought it was about time I posted something new.....
Been working on the Lightbox Expo Challenge (Environmental Design!) for nearly a month now...for a bit of fun..:)and to learn something new!.

All Vector Construction in Affinity Designer with multiple layer embedded files and manipulation of adjustment layers.....mostly for re-colouring objects

Two images created for projects
Size had to be scaled to a multiple of 1940px width or height

EV01
Original Size is 9600px x 3880 px (had to scale to 1940px) and 300dpi

EV01_01_21@0.2x.jpg

EV02
Original Size is 9600px x 4500 px and 300dpi
Extended the height of this one during building as the framework looked squashed forced into the original size!

Construction Toolkits

This project has a lot of vector construction toolkits associated with the embedded layer deployment
Built to make texturing a little easier.

1. Sky Vector Texture kit
2. Textured Background Vector Kit
3. Rock Monster landscape Builder (shown under 'Fallen' here)
4. Rock/boulder Construction Kit
5. Tree Builders (3 versions) Kit (created for Camouflage but edited for this project)

There are 2 versions; one of 'sky' and one for 'texture'. Each is made up of basic colour layer | graduation overlays | Texture of overlay

The Texture overlay is combination of grouped transparent objects (So if they are moved around..different effect!)

Vector Sky Builder
With the sky/backgrounds I have frequently painted using texture brushes to get the desired effect. As this project is completely vector I needed a 'tool' to experiment with pattern for the background sky.

Background Texture Generator
More elaborate version of 'Sky builder' with additional textures. All texture elements are compund paths...was a bit easier to manage!

Boulder Assemblage
This is not very visible in the final images as I dropped back/their layer visibility and re-coloured them. However this is what the originals look like. I have put together an asset sheet as well!

Appreciating the tremendous measure of work you do for the community. 

Thank you!...part of the purpose was to build some new assets....but I have not completed all the plants yet..some didn't make it into the drawing...Still it will keep me busy!

This one was a bit of challenge though!:)..I have not tried creating 2 drawings at once in a month!...originally I intended them to connect as a full 1.6 metre drawing but just did not work out that way"..especially when I had to increase the height of the second drawing!

Stuart is a treasure. Some days one of the first things I do is look for a new post by Stuart.
