The results of people following my flat illustration tutorial on Smashing Magazine!
Last July 11th, I published my first article for Smashing Magazine on how to do an illustration, coinciding with the first Affinity Live that took place in Nottingham and I had the pleasure to attend.
Some days have past, and I have some results of some of the people that followed it. I am quite happy and, yes, also proud to know this helped them get these nice results.
I am also quite happy with the feedback I got from some of the susbcribers on my channel and in the article itself.
The best of this is that, despite some differences in the workflows between the desktop version and the iPad version, these are minimum, and some of these artists have used the iPad, despite the fact that the article is written following the workflow in a computer.
I do not have and iPad myself, but talking to them, the differences seem to be little, so they managed to get the job done. Good news!!
User Alfred, from the Affinity forums, a guy that knows a lot and is well informed about all things Affinity, left this note for all of us to know:
“The tutorial is very well laid out and easy to follow, but one difference I encountered straight away is that I couldn’t find a ‘Create Palette from Document’ option in the iPad version, which meant that I had to add the fifteen colours one at a time. There is also no hexadecimal mode for colour values, so if you want to use exactly the same colours as Isabel used in her tutorial you have to convert the values FE8876 and E1C372 to their decimal equivalents (254, 136, 118) and (225, 195, 114): it isn’t difficult, but the conversion is an extra step and you have to enter the R, G and B components separately instead of being able to put them in as a single block.”
Now, enough writing, here some of the works I recevided. I will post more if/as I get more results!
