Why I love @figma ? Every time I use Figma to create illustrations, you guys always ask me why. Here are a few points I would like to share in this thread 🧢. I also uploaded a time lapse to YouTube ▢️

Here is timelapse+tutorial youtube video

Using Figma, Sketch and Penpot, I created the same icon and analyzed some key points. PS: I just tested workflow for creating illustrations. Basically, all these points are from the perspective of using these tools for illustration work

Both Figma and Penpot are cross-platform except for Sketch.

I tested on M1 Max. They all seem to be almost the same. There was a lot of lag in Penpot at the moment.

No complain. Pretty much all design interface follow same standard UI. However, I was wondering why they changed keyboard shortcuts. I find it confusing

Figma and Sketch have almost same color picker. Penpot, I like the option to change the color picker to RGB complementary. (Would love to have this in Figma someday)

Figma supports all gradient types. Angular and diamond are rarely used. But I do it for many different reasons. It's really great. Penpot needs a lot of improvement, only support 2 color for radial and linear.

Sketch have lot's of different blur type 😍

I can easily create a wide variety of shapes using radius in Figma. For illustration, I often use this method to obtain an initial primitive shape.

Power of figma. See how easy to create primitive shapes.

Another favourite feature to analyze. Figma is crazy, I can mask almost anything to get the initial shapes.

Figma has tons of plugins to automate a variety of tasks. Sketch has it too. Penpot has a long way to go, however.

During the working in penpot. I got this error πŸ˜•Apart from that, I able to create what I want. Sketch is almost same as Figma :)

At the end. I learned that a tool is just a tool. It doesn't matter what tool you choose depending on your needs, just start creating. You will find a way to achieve what you want to create with what you have on hand.

Thank you guys for love and support ❀️. Share and subscribe the youtube Planning to share more videos very soon.

Missed the color images here adding again Figma and Sketch have almost same color picker. Penpot, I like the option to change the color picker to RGB complementary. (Would love to have this in Figma someday)
