Paper Cutout Effect
Affinity Designer Video Tutorial
Easily create paper cutout effects. This is another request from a social media site. As requested, the tutorial is done in Affinity Designer. It can be easily recreated in Inkscape, CorelDraw or AdobeIllustrator though. Ultimately, Affinity Designer has the advantage of easy inner and outer shadows. It allows adjusting shapes smoothly while the effects are already added to them. I did quite enjoy the ease of Affinity Designer.
It’s easy to play with the angle, distance and intensity settings. Adjust them to get the look you are after. Making the shadows to be stronger on the top right side by changing the angle closer to 225 degrees.
I hope you find the video helpful and inspiring. A few more short videos on Affinity Designer will follow in the coming weeks. If times permits it, that is.
