Modern Folk Art Insects in Affinity Designer for iPad

In this class, I will show you step by step how I create my perfectly symmetrical folk art inspired insects using my Symbol Symmetry method. You will learn:

  • Where to source inspiration for your Modern Folk Art Insect Project,
  • All about Boolean (Geometric) Opersations and how you can use them to create a wide variety of interesting shapes for your insects,
  • How to add subtle, yet effective, color and texture to give life and dimension to your illustration  
  • How to use a mix of the Assets studio and Designer's drawing and shape tools to add both simple and complex elements to your designs.

As part of the class, you also receive, as a free download, my "Modern Folk Art Insects Assets Pack," filled with insect, flower and leaf shapes I created especially for the class.

Affinity Designer for iPad: Symmetrical Floral Illustrations Using the Symbols Studio

In this class, you will learn how to create perfectly symmetrical vector floral illustrations, right in Affinity Designer for iPad's Designer Persona without a sketch. I will show you my process for skipping the symmetry tool on the raster side and setting up your canvas for perfect symmetry using symbols. You will also learn how making an edit to one symbol will automatically make the same edit to all duplicates of that symbol with no manual intervention needed. When you take this class, you will receive my Symbol Symmetry Assets pack, full of single layer, vector florals and leaf shapes and you can use, along with the built in vector drawing and shape tools to create your own designs.

Affinity Designer for iPad:  Floral Typography

In this class, you will learn how to create your own letters and florals, right on your iPad, using Designer's built in shapes, geometric operaions and other tools. I will also show you how to use your letters as a mask to clip your florals inside of a base letter, then use the Pencil tool to release certain portions of them, while leaving others clipped. When you take the class, you will receive a font back that I created specifically for the class, a set of letter, flower and leaf assets I created as well as a specialty vector brush pack that helps you add additional texture to your flowers.

I will take you through the entire interface, show you how to use vector tools to create organic floral shapes and three ways you can add natural looking, subtle texture to create a final illustration. When you take the class, you will receive my Nature Elements Assets pack as well as a set of vector brushes that will help you further build your flowers.
