Paint Tool SAI Basics tutorial by BloodlineV Paint Tool SAI Basics tutorial by BloodlineV
UWAAAH, it's ma first tutorial, EVER. @ B @
And I'm so excited that it's done yet terrified because I surely made mistakes and typos and more mistakes...!!!11187tdjklfnakjbsfsbvhxds
Bear with me ppl.... = w ='' Be gentle....

And note that english is not my native language so I can't express myself as fluently as I would in finnish. Perkele.
Also my grammar is from ass. >>has forgot alot since the vacation started.

This tutorial is about Paint Tool SAI basics that I could think of when I was constructing this. I most likely forgot to mention a million things~
Also this is kinda just tutorial practise; I will be making coloring and drawing tutorials later(And I really mean LATER) and they take so much more time and effort~

Still, hopefully this helps somebody~ ; w ;/

"Where can I get this awesome program?"
This is the official site, I think: [link]
You can download a 31 day trial version, but after that you'll have to buy it.
Piracy exist, but I don't know where.

Hehe... Ma OC Sai introducing SAI. : D

tutorial, my oc SaiİMe

I know that the easy pattern can be done by clipping group. I'm completely self-taught with both photoshop and SAI so I've just developed my own ways.
