Affinity Designer - Using Multiple Artboards
In this tutorial, we will create a template in Affinity Designer and learn how to use multiple artboards.
Affinity Designer DIY Vector Brush - Base Image
Now that we have our paw print image, we are ready to build the base image for our vector brush in Affinity Designer. We want our brush to create a continuous path of paw prints. We can achieve this by setting the paw print image, called a texture, to repeat along the vector path.
Affinity Designer DIY Vector Brush - Paw Print
In this tutorial, we will create a custom vector brush in Affinity Designer from scratch and take a look at the Brushes panel and other tools we can use to customize and style our brush.
Affinity Designer DIY Vector Brush - The Brush
Now that we have our new base image for our custom brush exported as a .png, we can turn it into a vector brush.
Digital Manikin - Layer Hierarchy
At this point, we can't bend the arm at the elbow or wrist. So, we need to group some layers again but this time we will separate them in to subgroups for the three sections of the arm (upper arm, lower arm and hand sections).
Digital Manikin - Layers Panel
In this Affinity Designer tutorial, we will continue to work on our digital artist manikin. Now we will set up the arm and hand sections so that they will be posable.
Digital Manikin - Moveable Joints
In this Affinity Designer tutorial, we will work on the Transform Origin points that will make the joints moveable.
Digital Manikin - The Arm
In this fourth Affinity Designer tutorial in the series, we will start to work on the line art for the arms, legs and torso of our posable digital manikin.
Digital Manikin - The Arm Joints
Now we will divide the arm in to three sections, so that we can make it poseable. We need the ends of each section to overlap slightly. You can think of this as a joint.
Digital Manikin - The Face
Now we are ready to add the guidelines for placing the eyes, eyebrows, ears, nose and mouth. But this time we will be drawing the guidelines instead of dragging them from the Rulers.
Digital Manikin - The Head
In this third Affinity Designer tutorial in the series, we are ready to draw the line art for our digital manikin.
Digital Manikin - The Torso
Now that we have the head and face looking more like a human, let's do a quick touch up on the torso. We will draw the line art for the torso into one, more shapely, object.
Digital Manikin Body Proportions
In this second Affinity Designer tutorial in the series, we will continue to work on our digital manikin.
Global Colors in Affinity Designer
In this last tutorial in the series, we will be working with the Global Colors. We can use Global Colors to make subtle changes in the color of the wood. Or, you can go crazy with color to make a bright and fun background.
INDEX - Artist Manikin in Affinity Designer
In the next few Affinity Designer tutorials, we will make our own digital version of an artist manikin.
Power Duplicate in Affinity Designer
At this point in the Affinity Designer tutorial, we have drawn the first in a group of lines that will create the paneling for our background graphic. We will use the Power Duplicate function to duplicate this line across the canvas.

Raster or Vector Brush Strokes
Do you like to create your own custom vector brushes? If so, do you know the difference between a vector and raster based brush. Are you surprised to find that there are really two types of vector brushes.
Repeat Pattern Template in Affinity Designer
It's easy to create a repeat pattern in Affinity Designer, especially if you create your own template. This template will use the Symbol feature in Affinity Designer to create the seamless repeat tile and the auto update feature for a live preview of the results.
The Affinity Designer Brushes Panel
The Brushes panel is the place to import, access, reset, export and delete brushes in Affinity Designer. In this tutorial, we will walk through the basic "maintenance" tasks.
Wood Textures in Affinity Designer
At this point in this Affinity Designer tutorial, we have a simple background graphic, with a group of vertical lines centered and distributed evenly across the canvas. In this part of the tutorial, we will add some wood texture to add a little interest.
Wooden Background Graphic in Affinity Designer
In this Affinity Designer tutorial, we will create a background graphic for your next project. This background graphic will be an illustration of wood paneling.
