Hi everyone. I am new to Affinity Designer. I really love drawing in flat color vectors at the moment, so this is my first attempt at using AD. I didn't realize there was anything in the help files at first so it's mostly just trial and error. The interface is fairly intuitive but I admit I am having some challenges figuring out how to keep line & fill colors consistent.

 

I'd love to be able to select a line or shape and simply eye-dropper from an existing one. And I can't seem to figure out how to drag colors into my swatches palette and there are a few things I'd love to see added but I'll look for a suggestion thread here :)

 

I really love the software already. I hope you like this. Thanks for looking!

Hi diane555,

Welcome to Affinity Forums.

 

Your work is absolutely brilliant! Thanks for sharing it with us :)

To replicate a style of an object, select the object with the style you want to copy, press cmd+v (or go to Edit -> Copy), change to the object you want apply the style and press shift+cmd+v (or go to Edit-> Paste Style).

Nice work. I especially like the highlighting you did with the skin tones. But... retro? I know people who look/dress like this in 2015. Maybe the smoking part is retro!

Nice hair, texture and colors!  The overlapping color of the lines gives this piece a lot of character (who says one shouldn't color outside the lines?)  Welcome!
