Art from my hometown, Nyköping


Recommended Posts

Hi all! My first babysteps with Affinity, the car mostly done in Illustrator but the rest, a lot dots and spots and background done in pixelmode in my newly bought Affinity. I'm not a pro but an amateur and I have a couple years drawed pictures over my hometown Nyköping in Sweden. Here is the latest. Though not town but outside. Sorry for the english it's not my first language.
(why I bought affinity is because I bought a new mac to replace my 12 years old one and the old Adobe suite I had did'nt work in the new mac so, and now they had begun with monthly payed system that I as an poor amateur don't afford so I searched for a cheaper program, Affinity is very promising though I miss a few thing, maybe they come in future) 
Best Regards Jochum

I think as you become more familiar with Designer, controls and functions will be discovered as not everything is named the same or in the place where you may think it would be (especially coming from Illustrator). I used to loathe drawing with illustrator which is why I rarely touched the program for that function. Designer, to me, is much more intuitive, quicker, less buggy, and easier to navigate than Illustrator, and unlike Illustrator, I've NEVER experienced a crash with Designer (Last time I used Illustrator, crashing was almost constant. On super simple functions.). Love the illustration. Simple but detailed just enough.

I liked more to draw vectors in Flash it was easier somehow with alt command button, though that program lacked many things that illustrator had. Yes Affinity has not crashed once yet though I have used it quite a long time and many times done strange things as a new beginner tend to do, I have also exported bigger files than illustrator was incapable to, yes it seems rock solid. :)  And best of all tonings, graduations, I forgot the english word, I mean where a big background a sky for an example goes from light to dark in blue colour, does not get banding, stripes in it, like it often did in illustrator. (Arghh sorry for the english)
Thank you :)

Gradient is the word, I believe, you're looking for.

A phone booth..., I remember those 😀 I remember flash as well and I liked it. Pity it was banned by corporations. I guess flash advertisements were too easily stopped, so they pushed html5, which is much more difficult to block.

Looked for coins under the bottom stand when I was a kid, a very few times I got lucky. :D
