Uumm.... okay...

What tool am I using to shade?

How do I do the shading? As in, How Do I know WHERE to place them?

How can do the shades so round if I'm using a mouse?

Where's the oil water tool?

"pick out the 2nd skin color, go to third layer and do the same"...what did I exactly do? I just shade the already shaded parts again?

Where do I know to place the Highlights?

Where's the water color tool?

Filter>Brightness/Contrast? And that is....where?

...Photoshop? HOW do I use THAT!?

This wasn't all that useful...



...Ugh. Sorry for my rant, I'm just stressed out that I can't do shit!

The highlights and the shades you have to learn where to place them
every tool like brushes an ol water are placed where the pencil, brush, eraser, etc are
Filter>Brightness/Contrast is up on your window

How and where do I learn that!? :(

If the tools were there, I wouldn't be asking... The water and oil tool are missing.

Practice with your drawings, by yourself try to put them
I learned drawing a little sun on the corner, the side that is in the same of the sun thehighlights and in the other side the shades

I don't know how to show you :/

What do you do after? Do you erase the parts that you went over the lines?

Sai is very easy once you understand all the brush settings. The only way to do that is to start drawing in the program. Eventually, you will see what each setting does. Paint is okay for pixels but if you want to draw like this, Sai has blending tools paint does not have.

And so how do you get the skin coloring off the undesired parts once finished?

I didn't make this tutorial but I think I can answer this. You may not have to erase the skin coloring. Color the clothing on a new layer on top of the skin and no one will see the messy skin edge.

When you color the two shadings do you use pen, marker or brush?

When I used the Oil Watercolor tool it blended the skin layer a little too well, nothing like how you have it where the tones lighten up a bit. Have any suggestions?

Maybe try lowering the density?
Also play around with the section where it says blending/dilution

Hey, how do you erase all the extra parts when you color it that went outside the lines? Do you just do it normally or is there some special trick?
Reply
:iconkyaptain:
kyaptain Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
You can use the magic wand and go on the lineart layer to select and erase parts you don't want or do it by hand. I also let layers on top hide extra parts of the layer below it :)
