an important issue of shadow

Recommended Posts

Dear all,

I painted a shadow on bag surface with brush tool with transparent black color . 

The shadow wasn't smooth as the attached photo (look like to be painted with water color). 

How can I make a softer shadow?

(I have posted this article at the "question" section a couple days ago but there is no reply so far)

Hi ngquyetdinh,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

Unfortunately we don't support dithering with brushes so i'm afraid there isn't much you can do to improve this other than adding some noise to disguise the "posterisation" effect.

I've requested an improvement for this quite some time ago but i don't know if it will be considered by the dev team. I will raise/bump this issue again and will add a link to this thread on our log.
