Winter Snow Scene.


Made in Affinity Photo.

I used just 3 images to produce this image.

the foregrounstarted off as green grass and using blend modes, I managed to turn the grass white, with added grunge brush to make the light covering of snow.

The lamp was a PNG image ready to go, with additional duplicate layers to add the snow to the side and shadow fall. Additional pixel layers to add glow to the lamp.

Great thanks to Pedro for the fantastic snow brushes. The snow was done over 4 pixel layers with various size brushes and gaussian blur and motion blur to imitate snow fall.


Thanks to Pedro Soares for the Snow brushes. http://blog.pedrosoares.photo/branca-leve-e-fria/

Fantastic composite Marky :)

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks MEB, really starting to get to grips with Affinity now. Just a different way of working. AFFINITY is such an in-depth program, and there are numerous ways of achieving the same thing. Really glad I made the switch. Saved me £70 over the year. Now I can put that towards Affinity Designer!

inspiring! how long did this piece take for you to finish?

Hi LovesToDraw408

This piece took about 1 hour, give or take a couple of tea breaks. Took some time to find some descent snow brushes. Pedro came up trumps for those.

Then there was searching youtube and the net for "How to...." etc.

Hope this information is useful. 

Like any new software, this may be similar to another product, but you still need to work through it.

Have fun.


this one took 2-3 hours including searching for images.
