#affinityphotoillustration

Recommended Posts

Hi, I just started a new hashtag on Instagram: #affinityphotoillustration. I decided to do that because I am working on a picture book / app starting to use Affinity Photo instead of Photoshop. I will show some of my illustrations, all bitmap, no vectors, done in AP. It would be nice to see more illustrators using AP presenting art under the same #affinityphotoillustration tag. To get to now about you, to learn how you use this software and to get inspired from each other. See you on Instagram!

So far... nine illustrations made using Affinity Photo (and a little Designer). They are to be found on my Instagram (henrystahle) and I am using #affinityphotoillustration to show they are basicly all bitmap illustrations. The latest are from my recent project, an interactive app for Android and iOS. Me as an illustrator + a coder (LUA + Corona) that also animates and such. In Affinity I can use the slicing function for exporting, that is a big thing, it makes the work work, and easy exporting... :) Happy for that.

I agree. I really like the storybook style.
Makes me wonder what the story is. Why is the man out walking in such high winds? Why is the boy's pencil so large and is it magical? Where's the fisherman off to in his boat?
The illustrations make me want to know what's happening.

Great stuff.

Looks great Henry, I especially like the feeling in the bird image, the black and white and the depth of field. I find the man with the scarf a little outside of the style, probably because of the addition of linework, but still all really great stuff! Love the painterly feel.

Aammppaa Cealcrest GarryP retrograde , thank you for commenting!

I am not the kind of illustrator that keep within a limited style. I use different ways of expressing myself in my pictures. Sometimes I use ink, ink and wash, acrylics, watercolour, sometimes colour pencils, graphite, digital bitmap tools and vectors, animation, video or photography, even clay and other sculpture material.... I got no style :) 

What I do is trying to tell some kind of stories using the means and materials that are at hand for the moment. Affinity Photo and Designer are such a great combination of software. I have experimented some to find out how to use them. Now I know most of it.  I use them all the time now. Great software.

Same here, my 'style' is certainly "eclectic"

Henry Cool style and colors. Oh wait you say you have no style ?

Sure you have one and a great one :D.

 

Oh btw, could you tell us a bit more about the brushes you're using within affinity photo ? And now i'm curious about that interactive app !
