Leprechaun Inking in Affinity Designer 1.7 Beta

Recommended Posts

Leprechaun 2019 Initial inking

This is the first in a series of videos detailing my process of vector inking my shirt design for the upcoming St Patrick's Day 5k. In these first two steps, I trace my approved sketch with a tapered vector brush in Affinity Designer, intentionally overlapping my lines so that in step two, I can divide them where they cross and delete away the excess portions. I've been making an effort to do more and more of my workflow in Affinity Designer instead of my standard Illustrator app so part of this process was exploration and trying out new tools and methods.

I'm still hoping we get an eraser and a blob tool (amongst other features) to make this process a little easier. Also - the combine boolean leaves behind a TON of nodes in its wake... is that something being addressed?

Nice.
I like the way you tidy up after yourself, something I would forget to do - or be scared to do - and leave myself in a horrible 'node-hell' mess.
Looking forward to seeing more videos.
