SAI Tutorial - Painting by DarlingMionette SAI Tutorial - Painting by DarlingMionette
YAY a color tutorial. That's enough tutorials for today. YES I will be making an adobe photoshop version of this in the future. But not today. <3

Tutorial includes my custom brush settings :) You're welcome.

NOTE: The settings for the "Marker" tool are slightly incorrect. I have mine sent to 0 Blend not 50 XD.

The Mech pencil is actually pretty good for coloring, if you use a big enough size. I use it a lot to get the painted effect that I love so much *u*

One thing I need to know: Do you put on all the shades for the skin in a seperate layer, or just in one? (new to Sai, need help haha)

How did you make your blendy tool???

I made a watercol brush that was super blendy and then took away it's ability to create color :3 It only blends when you paint with it instead of adding to the color like a normal watercolor brush. you can find the exact settings i used in my custom brush supplement (tutorials section of my gallery)

Thank you!! I use the blur tool at the moment, but it doesn't quite grab color the way I want it to.

if you didn't save it as a transparent layer, you can set the mode to "multiply" and it should appear transparent.
