Course Description

Affinity Photo - is it just a tool for photo processing? No, no and one more time no!
Look at this scientist, want to know how to paint the same or better one?
In this class, we will paint a character using only Affinity Photo and nothing more. I have attached all the sketches and brushes that I will be working on for the lessons, so you will not have any difficulties with this. But if you want to use your own sketch - I'll be only happy!
The set of used brushes includes several of the DAUB Blenders free pack (you can download it on the official site). Also in the bonus lecture you will find an excellent promo offer for paid brushes for Affinity Photo and Designer from Paolo Limoncelli!

During the course, you will learn how to:
  • Use Affinity Photo tools effectively
  • Create volume in 2D drawing
  • Correctly apply layer modes for drawing shadows and light
  • Paint a cool illustration from a sketch, to the completed work
This class will not require you to have serious painting skills, and it will suit both beginners and experienced illustrators who want to learn new techniques of working with Affinity Photo.

And of course, I will always help you with advice and answer your questions if you do not understand something!Who this course is for:
  • Beginners and advanced artists who want to explore the possibility of painting in Affinity Photo.

Much of this course was spent just watching the tutor paint his character. This is a pointless waste of time and I sped up most of the videos. There is little explanation of what is going on. I almost gave the course one star, but I'm not so cruel.

Great tutorial.

Great to watch now. Thorough, with techniques becoming much clearer...

I want more info about why and when.
