Getting used to SAI

Yep, I finally put my hands on SAI which i got sent by

(thank you very much for it x3)
And I gotta say: I know SHIT about this program xD
But after some humble beginnings i can at least flat color pics with it. Shading on the other hand is a complete mystery for me at the moment >w>;;

But I enjoy how smooth you can draw lines with it. With Photoshop it was a real pain and the lines were too pixelated xwx

Anyway, maybe I can manage this program and draw with it

Sai is pretty cool. And it has no issues with my tablet. Photoshop had issues with it.
HIGH FIVE!

so much Kanji~

Yeah, Sai can be pretty fun though for how different it feels compared to Photoshop O=

the rotation option really helps

If you use luminosity layer in SAI, it will produce different color output once you import the file to photoshop.
And it has pen stabilizer; easy to draw hair :)

Grats on getting Sai, what the best things about Sai is that very simple and doesn't come with gazillion options like Photoshop, making it a lot easier to learn.

For shading in SAI, on the rare times that I do shading, I add an extra layer to the image and change the kind of layer from "Normal" to "Multiply," then I put one solid color into that layer.  Then I use the Eraser tool to remove any color in that additional layer that I don't need and voila!  Quick and highly effective shading.  :)

StrawberryNeko posted a very good tutorial of this process on her FA page.  I've linked to it below for your convenience.

I hope this helps you out.  :)

A tip for you once you get used to SAI: Learn to make your own brushes or download some brush sets, at times the default tools don't do the program nor its works any justice.

You can do it Mr.Taro~   its not to hard of a program,  just getting good brushes for it can be a pain :p

Some underestimate, putting photoshop as the almighty, from my point of view, when I started to understand how it worked, immediately leave aside PS, SAI is really powerful, and for me, in digital drawing, meets very PS above, however there not to divorce, SAI and PS are compatible, soI left PS for the final touch, as filters, effects and some lights, which unfortunately lacks SAI, but for less than 50 ~ 60MB can not ask for more ~^o^~ ...

But most important is that you feel more comfortable with a determined program, because when you know take advantage of a drawing program by most basic or complex it is, the result will always be perfect, greetings and good luck with practice :3

i actually like how you can use SAI for coloring. at least the flat colors. I'll probably use photoshop for effects and lighting and all that stuff. but for lineart it's definitely the better choice :D
