How to sci-fi like a Pro in Affinity Photo with Olivio Sarikas

2 min read

In this Lockdown 2020 session, professional designer and artist Olivio Sarikas shows you how to create an out-of-this-world sci-fi gate effect in Affinity Photo. This easy tutorial will guide you through a photo composition from start to finish, demonstrating how to combine images and colour match them, plus how to effectively use light and fog effects.

Olivio will be available on Live Chat on YouTube for this session’s premiere on Saturday, 23 May 2020 at 4pm BST.

For his session, Olivio is also providing his Mythical Gradients Pro Pack for FREE. These gradients are inspired by the colours used by the old masters and are a powerful tool to enhance your projects — Olivio himself uses them in his work every day. The pack is available here:

Olivio studied art at the University of Fine Arts in Munich and Vienna before building his successful design business and launching his YouTube channel, which now captivates thousands of viewers thanks to its useful tips and insight. You can watch Olivio’s YouTube videos, including live streams, here:
