L'il Doggy - Airbrush style in Designer


Recommended Posts

Here's another dog, seems I'm on a roll... personal work this time.


Thought I'd try out an all airbrush style paint piece using mostly pixel persona and the spray paint brushes in Designer. I had tried this guy a few years back in photoshop, this turned out much better.  ;)  Maybe I just suck at photoshop painting...  :)



Some discoveries made with this piece has got me thinking of some personal wish list items for Designer as it pertains particularly for painting:


- rotate canvas

- an option or toggle to hide the brush cursor while painting (some of the brush cursors outline previews are a little distracting and are in the way while painting)

- smooth stroke or lazy mouse feature

- quick flip canvas (horz and vert) to check composition 

- OPTION > COMMAND > SPACE BAR  and COMMAND > SPACE BAR for zooming (it's enabled and works as expected in draw persona but not in pixel persona, never did get an explanation on why this is... :huh:  - this is a biggie hence the UPPERCASE letters!)  :) The navigator palette just doesn't cut it for quick workflow.


as an aside...

- would love to see a "global" noise effect ability like in Affinity Photo (live filter) to be able to globally cover entire artwork with noise from the top most layer...

CHEERS Matt!!... and MEB and GRScott!


Sorry to sneak a wish list in there but it was top of mind as I just finished the piece and I keep a running list of things I encounter near me as I work or I'll just forget until I come up against it in a new piece.


Hehe, yes it would seem that I have "gone to the dogs", I have more dogs to come but might take a break and try something else, maybe of the human variety...  ;)
