Come back original PIRC member.....
« on: May 31, 2017, 10:04:36 PM »
Warm regards to all those that may on the off chance remember me from years gone by. It's great to be back although a little nervous about learning AD as a rank beginner. Hoping to slowly pick it up and start creating again.  Unfortunately  I didn't succeed  in learning Sherif but fingers crossed Affinity Designer will be easier. Need some tutorials to get myself acquainted with all the tools / buttons / etc. appearing on the screen. - Any advice much appreciated.
Going to try and stay away from seeing how it works for pixel painting - lol!!

It's wonderful to see lots of familiar names & faces here from all those years ago.  :)

Cheers for now & will see you all around on the boards. I'm off to have a good look around the forum now.

 :welcome01: back, Lorraine!  It has been a long time.... too long!! 

You shouldn't have any trouble learning Affinity Designer. it's pretty easy.  We have the AD workshop Past Projects where you can see what we've already done.  We're all pretty much  beginners with this one, it's still the first version!  There are some tutorials at Pircnet.com that are for how to use various tools.  Nothing about painting, that's not my "thing" so I stick with the vector stuff.   Just jump in and try things and you can always ask questions. 

If you do the projects in the Archive of past project, post your results in the workshop area with the appropriate subject line.  You'll  be caught up before you know it!!

Again, welcome back!!!! :cancan: :cancan: :cancan:
