Hello,

I am trying to create objects with jagged edges like the ones seen in the design. I am using Affinity Designer on iPad. Any tips on how to recreate this in a vector format?

thanks in advance

I’d suggest ripple filter or use the equations filter. Search on this site for ideas

PMudditt, thank you for the response. I forgot to mention in my original edit that I am using Affinity Designer as I want this design to be in vector format. Do you think this is possible in designer or should I look at acquiring Affinity Photo?

Thank you for your time

Sorry missed that you were using AD, can’t think how to do that in AD but AP is inexpensive too.

Hi, eneuman93,

I think it is do-able. I don't use my iPad much. It appears I'd been using the beta version, which had expired, and so am d-loading Designer again. My connection is hideously slow, been about an hour, and still have about 40% to go.

I do think something similar can be done, been meesing about w. the desktop version. But looking at the image you showed, I'm reminded that Illustrator had a feature called punk&bloat, which randomized nodes. Affinity doesn't have that, and there was a comment a few years ago that it was not likely it would.

I may get back in awhile w. some results, but I do have some things I must get done.

Attached image mostly done on the iPad. I really don't use it enough to be fluent, and so did some later work on the desktop.

Basic method. Draw pen lines w. pressure curve adjustments. I expanded those, and added many together. There were a lot of strokes that turned into "curves" objects. Those needed to be self divided, and the tiny bits selected, and thrown away. 

Then, 2 different operations. Made a pencil scribble over the animal shape, and expanded that. Subtracted it from the animal. Selected all nodes, made them smooth, and then used the smoothing routine to make it look gloppier. Selected portions, duplicated, and gave the duplicates a square dotted line. Expanded the stroke, and subtracted that from the previous shape. Again, selected all nodes, made them smooth, and then used the smoothing routine to make it look gloppier. 

In some places, drew more lines over the shape, and subtracted the expanded strokes.

Continued selecting some smaller portions, making the strokes dotted, and expanding. Copied those, and moved them around, and then subtracted them from the underlying expanded strokes.

Somewhat labor intensive, but it does allow for some areas to be more irregular than other. Seems like a good thing to me.
