Hey everyone, I was wondering if anyone knew how to recreate the rough effect shown in the attached image in Affinity Designer? I have included my attempt at the effect but as you can see it doesn't look the same. I could probably achieve a similar effect in the Pixel Persona/Affinity Photo when using a drawing tablet but I wanted to keep the smooth bezier curves that you get when using the pen tool. My attempt was achieved by adding a stroke to my shape using the DAUB Moloch vector brush but as you can see the effect doesn't look the same, instead of being one cohesive element as in the original illustration, in my attempt it looks like the stroke and fill are 2 completely separate elements with the stroke sort of just sitting on top of the fill (I hope that description makes sense).

 

Is this a matter of finding the correct vector brush or is this style achieved another way?

 

The original artwork is by Donghyun Lim, I'm not trying to rip off his illustration but just thought copying it would better illustrate the problem I'm having achieving the same effect.

Thats not a stroke, it looks like he is distorting the edge, maybe with a plugin or the software he uses has that kind of distortion filter. I can achieve a similar effect in Illustrator using the Wrinkle tool.

Affinity Designer doesn't have a 'roughen' or 'wrinkle' tool yet, but it's on the wishlist.

Wouldn't a textured line (stroke) do it ?

I suppose you could custom design one in Designer to give a sharper edge but I reckon he as used some sort of plugin or filter to do all of that. would be interesting to ask him, he's a talented guy and I love his style and designs

Thanks, I looked up examples of A.I's wrinkle tool and that does indeed look like what has been used.

Thats hopeful, although that was back in 2015, maybe we will get that feature in a 2.0 release as I don't even see it on the road map yet.

Thanks, that does actually look a lot better than my original attempt, I tried again using that textured brush and while it certainly does look closer to the artists original artwork when I increase the stroke to exaggerate the roughness the corners start to loose their sharpness (as shown in the example below, they start to get more rounded), I'm not a fan of the blurriness either but I know that could be overcome with a different brush.
