Hello guys!

 

Just wanted to share a recent mascot design I made for my other design studio Insecto Design, using Affinity Photo. I've also included the preliminary pose sketches (made in AP too) so you can have an idea of the process. Hope you enjoy!

Awesome character Frankentoon!

 

Nice to see you working the dimensional shading on this one. Designer and Photo are pretty capable digital painting apps.

Yes, I was admiring that too! thumbup1.gif

 

It's interesting to note just how anthropomorphic Enrique chose to make his character, giving it two arms and two legs instead of the six legs that you usually expect to see on an insect. :P

Awesome character Frankentoon!

Thanks a lot! I love to do this kind of shading, is more time consuming, but is also rewarding at the end :)

Thanks Alfred! Yes, this way is more cheaper to reproduce in several positions and even cheaper to animate :)

Beautiful characters. The mouths caught my attention as their depth (as in 3-D-ish look) seems complex and likely requires a lot of work with each different facial expression. You have handled that really well. Take, for example, the boots. You can change those positions rather easily with minor shading adjustments. But the mouths cause a completely different adjustment between say a smile and a grin due to the depth of the cheeks, teeth, etc. Outstanding work!

 

By the way, I still haven't received one email even though I subscribed about 3-4 months ago. Is it alive and well?

Actually, you also manually added my email address after I let you know I didn't get the first installment. Still nothing. Just wondering.

Found the Jungle Scene in the forum posting but have not rec'd any emails about it or the Pack(s), even though my email is registered twice.

 

Loved the jungle scene and I used it to create a Tabloid-sized coloring page for the grand-kids. I used the assets to design a river-based jungle-scene and added additional animals similar to the tiger... giraffe, elephant and several monkeys. Then I turned it B&W so they could color it in. They loved it. Thanks for sharing it.

Do you feel there is a slight advantage using Affinity Photo for Digital Painting vs using Affinity Designer?

 

Thanks for asking!

Not really, for this particular project I just opened AP and made the first sketches there, then I refined them and finished the project inside AP without even notice that I wasn't in AD. For these kind of pure bitmap paintings I use either Photo or Designer in Pixel mode :)
