Twisted Brushes and Ostrich


Recommended Posts

It's a long time since I last posted, I've been busy all through lockdown, using Affinity Designer and Photo everyday for creating content for a large charity website. All enjoyable, sensible work! But I've been a Serif customer for 12 years now, and this experiment with Affinity Photo and Twisted Brushes stems back to the days when a group of us just used to experiment and push boundaries. Using just three Twisted brushes, I first created the yellow shape on the left and thought it looked like an angry ostrich. Mmm. Better make another ostrich opposite - these brushes are great and create unexpected patterns when woven around the page. The second ostrich seemed to be recoiling from the first. Chosse a different brush and create fabulous foliage and some water. But it needed a story - so a third Twisted Brush creates a couple of rather supernatural beings who are trying to goad the two ostriches into a proper fight. I just loved what I could do with the brushes.
