I had absolutely no experience using Affinity Designer before taking this class. Isabel, you are an amazing teacher. Of course I will continue to practice more and more, but I am very proud to have managed to do this so far! I found that your 2nd method (deleting the 2nd node) works best for me, though I used all 3 methods making this. To have gone from no experience of an illustration software at all to this in 2 days is mind boggling! I did a few of the lessons over a couple of times and made notes to get to grips with the concepts taught, but the information was so comprehensive and well-explained that a few attempts at each given exercise was enough.
