Permoniks – Fake Propaganda Posters

Recently I had fun with vector brushes and created some fake propaganda poster of Permoniks (mythical characters in my upcoming game).

Factions and classes

I’ve decided that there will be two warring factions of permoniks – one faction inspired by the communists of the 1940’s, the other by royalists and environmentalist.

So far I’ve been working mostly on the communist faction, and I’ve decided to create five classes: worker, scout, bomber, berserk, and guardian.

Worker – recruitment poster

Permonik – basic worker

Scout – recruitment poster

Permonik – scout

Both posters were made in Affinity Designer, and I used some of the Vector Hero brushes by Retro Supplies.

Today I’ll be working on the designs for the bomber and guardian and I will post an update soon. What do you think of The Permoniks so far?

Frankentoon Brushes for Affinity Designer

Two weeks ago I bought a few collections of brushes and textures from Frankentoon. A few days ago, I finally had some time to check them out, and so far I’m excited. The brushes add so much dept to my vectors. I have a long way before me to master the proper techniques but I think it will be worth it.

Even simple vector shapes can be quickly made into more interesting objects:

Christmas tree – before and after, vector vs. textures
Christmas wreath – before and after application of textures

I recommend everyone, who is interested in vector graphics or Affinity Designer, to check out Frankentoon website – not only to buy their great brushes and textures but also to read some useful tutorials.
