About This Class

In this class I gonna show you how to create a vector illustration, in 80's airbrush retro-futuristic style, using Affinity Designer. No tablet needed, I draw everything with the mouse, using just a pen tool and basic shapes.

After this class, you’ll learn:

  • how to add and adjust chrome gradients,
  • how to add strokes with different pressure,
  • how to use gaussian blur to mimic the airbrush shadows and highlights technique,
  • how to add 80's aesthetic flavor to your vector artwork.
  • and much more!

Feel free to join and get your dosage of 80's neon!
