Tiling and Blob brush

Recommended Posts

I would like to request a tiling pattern tool and also something akin to the blob brush, but with more control would be a very useful addition?

Designer is brilliant but a pressure-sensitive blob brush would be extremely useful!

Also badly needed is an eraser tool that works in the same way.


While I'm at it, calling it a Brush tool, a la Illustrator, when it doesn't work at all like a brush, is counter-intuitive.

I teach Illustrator at a college and have to spend way too much time explaining how un-brushlike the "brush" tool is -not to mention Illustrator's insane pencil tool –and a whole lot of others.

I suspect that software designers don't appreciate how completely unintuitive drawing with vectors can be for those who draw professionally –when a correction needs to be made, coat-hanger-wire bending is not how people who draw make corrections. They just draw again, just like the blob brush and eraser do.


Thank you, Affinity!
By the way, I always recommend you to my students.

Yes, Blob brush looks like a must have. I would imagine it would have to be implemented after path simplification tools, as there could be a mess of nodes otherwise.


Would be awesome tho :)
