Hi. So I've had Affinity Designer for about a year but have never really tried to expand my art in the digital direction. This will be my first attempt at a vector illustration. Suggestions and feedback welcome!

Sloth:

Maybe a bit of an explanation about the drawing would help people understand it?

The squares aren't aligned to the dimensions of the whole image, the bottom right is off as well, unless the above mentioned was deliberate ;)

What is the creature?

To me it looks like a stylized Sloth.

I thought the same, but I was too lazy to say so! :D

Hi, pyxl.er,

As the saying goes "A journey of a thousand miles starts w. a 1st step," or something like that.

So, why the white space between the face and the shoulder?

Now you've said that, ole slothy is lying down and the white space is the gap between the arm and the head, but it really should be pink, the shadow at the bottom makes it confusing as it appears to be standing. 

Remove the bottom shadow and change the white to the pink background.

A good first try though.

I thought ‘ole slothy’ was sitting up!

Either way, there should be a little bit of green round-cornered rectangle visible behind the sloth’s left leg.

sloths don't sit up, they'd fall over, I think he's having a rest after a hard days slothing,  he looks pleased with himself and rightly so, slothery is a hard skill to get right without making it look like hardwork. 

He also looks like his name is Poncho :D

Are you sure?


Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be worried about.

 I didn't name him but Poncho seems like a perfect name:D. He is supposed to be sitting up and leaning against the background though laying down does make more sense
