3 Affinity Designer Assets Free From the Web
Now, if you're starting to use Affinity Designer, you might not feel ready to invest in premium Affinity Designer assets just yet. In that case, here are a few Affinity assets free to try from the web. While Affinity Designer assets free are tempting, just remember these don't offer the same quality and features as those from the Envato family.
Cartoonists and line artists will be delighted with these free comic brushes. You'll get four brushes that simulate pencils and four inking brushes. No more undoing and redoing to get the perfect stroke—just put your line down once, and then adjust it as required. On top of that, the brushes are pressure- and rotation-sensitive. Not bad for free assets.
Vector illustration and traditional "Monet"-like painting might not have seemed like two things that could go hand in hand, but thanks to these free assets, you can now fuse these previously separate worlds of art with brushes.
This is a very clever, and totally free, tool for creating color palettes in Affinity Designer. You simply set some base colors by applying "Color Overlay" styles to some specified groups, and the template will automatically display a range of blended colors for you to sample and add to your color palette. This template is one of many free assets that are sure to come in handy for every artist.
