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.

Anyway~
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
Finished picture:


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.

Silly question, but did you use some form of tablet (like Wacom) to do this? If not, is paint tool SAI compatible with such devices. I'm going to buy one regardless for Christmas, but my software choice may have to change.

Okay, so you layer the lineart? And would you suggest having the lineart be black or a much darker version of the color?
Reply
:iconbloodlinev:
BloodlineV Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2014  Student Digital Artist
Yes, I usually draw the lineart with black and recolor it afterwards if needed.

Recolor the lineart?
Reply
:iconbloodlinev:
BloodlineV Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2014  Student Digital Artist
Yes, you can color the lineart with a different color once you lock the layer's pixels with "opacity lock".

huh. I'll try that. so you can just select it or something,and choose a color?

:iconbloodlinev:
BloodlineV Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2015  Student Digital Artist
You don't have to select anything: when you use opacity lock on a certain layer all the pixels on that layer will be locked and you can sort of paint over them.

How exactly did you change the color of the lineart in SAI? I'm trying to figure out how cause I saw that you went from red to black

On the lineart layer, click the "Preserve Opacity" button on top of the "layers" box. Once you've done that, just colour over the lines with the colour you want. c: Hope that made a bit of sense...

OMG, this is so cool and helpful!!!

And I have a question... What did you use to do the outline? Did you do it on the lineart layer or by just using the pen tool?

Sorry for the late reply!
The tabs move around when you adjust the width of the whole layers panel.

Could you do a separate tutorial on the lineart and make it more in-depth? I looked up tutorials like this to learn more tips on lineart. All you truly did was show us a few pictures.
