ahh...this was confusing to do,i probably left out a couple of things... oh well
first off...i made this tutorial at the request of
now...to analyze the hieroglyphs i scribbled there.
the color part...its kinda important which color you chose to highlight with and which to 'shadow' with...the complementary theory of colors is what i learn in school(kinda) and is how i usually use them.
next...when opening a new file no matter what the height and width of the canvas, the resolution should always be the highest you can type.it is very important!resolution= how many pixels there are per inch
next...sketch something and the ink with S-7 <--- again important!!
next...shade with brush tool,its very useful because it can blend( you can also make custom brushes out of this so it can blend moar! :3 ) then do details with water 10 or oil water also,you can go and blend even more with water tool,but i usually avoid that cuz it makes a lot of mess!
next...the 'special' highlights and 'shadows' are made by the proprieties of layers :normal for normal state ..multiply darkens ... addition acts as a highlighter ... and %A%e(that how its written in my sai version) burns the drawing with the color you select! very important that you use these in moderation (as in using lowering the opacity of the layer)
thats kinda all
if anyone doesnt understand something please tell me so i can clarify.
