My very fist illustration with Affinity...Abstract Storytelling

Recommended Posts

Hi jakezhang, welcome to the forum.

 

Got to say that the scratchy textures are spot on. How did you do it? As for your layers/blending modes, they are really effective at giving depth to the picture. Quite moody and textural. :)

 

As for shrinking images, did you mean dimensions or file size? If you meant file size, then my preferred technique is to export as a png/Jpg and reduce to 30% say. 

 

HTH

Well, I see a city in the background and a green space towards the foreground - but I'm not sure what I see at the bottom yet?!? It's a really nice first piece and definitely gets you thinking and feeling :) Nice use of textures to enhance things too!

As Matt says, I can see the city in the first one. I think the second must be about music? Very nice.
