Vector and pixel
portraits & paintings

Currently I am in some sort of transition phase, creating an increasing amount of vector portraits and paintings and a decreasing number of pixel artworks. Affinity Designer allows me to create realistic vector art, which I was unable to do while using CorelDRAW and Illustrator. It is possible to make vector art in those programs using the mesh-fill tool, but that takes a huge amount of time and can not easily be changed afterwards, which is exactly what Affinity Designer permits artists to do in the blink of an eye. The reason for switching from pixel art to vector art is that the latter can be re-scaled to any size without losing quality. Blowing up pixel art results in blurriness, jagged edges and tone shifts, while vector art has none of these flaws. Until not too long ago however, it was impossible to create realistic vector art that is easily editable. But since Affinity Designer was published, it actually is. Vector art can be printed on any desired size on a wide range of different surfaces and its quality invariably is beyond compare.

Vector portraits

Vector portraits are resolution independent; they can be re-scaled to any size without losing quality. I create them with ZERO pixels, ALL vector in Affinity Designer. Learn more...

Pixel portraits

Pixel portraits are restricted to one size only for optimum quality. Pixel textures are created in less time in bitmap editing programs like Affinity Photo that I prefer to use. Learn more...

Vector painting 'Crossing Death's Frontier', created in Affinity Designer. ZERO pixels, ALL vector, thus re-scalable to any size without loss of quality. Learn more...

Pixel painting 'Peace pipes and Winchesters' created in Affinity Photo, inspired by Howard Terpning's magnificent work 'The telling of legends'. Learn more...
