Just recently completed another fun project using Designer exclusively.

I had this concept for a Madame Butterfly opera poster for awhile but really didn't feel like my previous app was up to it so I put it on the shelf until a few months back when I decided to tackle it in Designer. The look and feel I was shooting for was sort of like those rich coloured album cover airbrushed illustrations from the 70's and 80's. Where everything is soft and saturated. I was really pleased with the outcome and glad that I waited to do this in Designer.

Below are some screenshots, with more on my Behance site and there's also a short tutorial just uploaded by Affinity's Andy Capstick on the new Affinity Spotlight blog specifically on the creation of the eyes for this piece. Hope you like!

So smooth/soft and clean (despite the noise). Nicely executed as always.
Thanks for sharing Kevin :)

Thanks Lads! Yes I was trying to maintain a certain airbrush softness all over this. I think every element has at least a one or two pixel blur on it... "blinkin' fun!"
