Learn to make your own solutions


As we know custom tools add a completely new aspect to an artist's work, and there are ton of people out there creating them....so why aren't you?

  • Are you competent in the Affinity products of Photo and / or Designer, but not sure how to go about making your own tool?
  • Are you not sure what to make, how to develop them...or even what the steps are to make your own tools?
  • Or maybe you are in interested in trading or one day selling your tools to those that are fans and follow your work... then this one is for you

I have been teaching the affinity Suite now for over 3 years to thousands of students and I want to put the power to create with this amazing software in your hands....along with so much more.

In this course we will utilize the affinity suite of products ( Designer and Photo) to create the following digital tools

  • Brushes (both Vector and Raster)
  • Overlays
  • Textures
  • Asset Packs
  • Gradients, LUTS, and Pallets
  • Mock ups
  • and so much more ....

What kinds of things are covered in the course


We polled Affinity users from some of the largest forums out there and asked them what they wanted to know when it came to tool building ...and then we crammed it into this course , included in the course are topics on

  • Smoke and Flame brushes
  • Halftone brushes
  • Mock up creation
  • Hand drawn strokes converted into vector brushes
  • Faking studio lights
  • Gradient pallets for color grading techniques  



What sort of software and projects will be complete


We will be using Affinity Designer and Photo , but we are also going to be using a free software from FX home called HITFILM EXPRESS to bring the world of CGI into play when we make our tools, and as a totally optional piece of my workflow I will be showing you how I use Vector Magic to create vectorized textures for use in larger projects....so from concept to finished tool, you see the entire pipeline we use to create professional tools for use in Affinity 

In this course we make the tools and apply them to 2 real life step by step projects....ONE BEING AN ILLUSTRATION , the other is a FULLY RENDERED PHOTO COMPOSITE .... if you don't have BOTH Affinity Programs, no worries , easily 90% of the course content is applicable to BOTH software systems, so you will never feel like the course is geared toward one or the other


Learn to make smoke and flame brushes


In this course we teach you how to make smoke and flame brushes to make images like this

Learn to make VECTORIZED illustration assets


Create vectorized asset packs for use in your illustrations.......if you can draw it by hand we can show you how to make a fully scaled vectorized object

Create LUTS, color presets and overlays


We teach you how to take overlays from both the digital world and the physical world and create something to take your work up a notch

What level of experience do you need to take this course

While this is not a beginner course, you do not need a high level of Affinity knowledge to take this course, and as long as you know the basics you will be fine .... HOWEVER if you are new to digital art ( i.e. if you do not know what a mask layer or a blend mode are) , then this may not be a good fit for you

What will you achieve when you complete the course?

·       You get 2 of my professional brush packs that we DID NOT MAKE in the course, just for being part of it

·       You get all of the source files, brush files and you will have a complete set of digital tools made and customized by you ...for you

·       You will have student support through the platform

·       You will have completed 2 projects, one illustration and one composition
