A Newbie at Affinity - Paint Splatter Effect

Recommended Posts

I just bought Affinity yesterday (a Christmas gift from my husband). I did a paint splatter effect on a photo of our then 3-month-old grandson. I've been a long time PSP user but love this Affinity. I downloaded a free trial and decided to switch from PSP to Affinity. Of course, there are still lots to be learned. I'm looking forward to learning from others and growing in my photo artistry. BTW my name is Melissa :)

I'm adding another work I just did... It's a pencil sketch effect. The photo is of our youngest son and our grandson and my husband on our son's wedding day this past November. I hope you all like.

Nice work, Melissa!
As a long-time computer user (I go back to punched cards and paper tape!) I've always found the best way to get the hang of new software is simply to play with it and see what happens. It looks as if you're already getting to grips with AP looking forward to seeing what you do next!

Nice starting work.

Completely off  topic... Love how the kid is gazing at his daddy. And Daddy's shirt button is popped open. I gained 10 pounds w. each kid, and my wife would get on my case to loose it as she lost what she had gained.
