I HAVE FOUND ONE OF THE SECRETS TO SAIKIND
I did some anatomy. Full view to see my tiny, tiny notes.
it’s always hard for me to remember this so, reblogging for everyone else like me :C
Apologies in advance for any spelling errors, I’ll fix stuff in the morning…too tired now…
oh hey it’s a tutorial on glowing stuff I guess…I already made one 2 years ago but I don’t make things glow like that any more :|
…also when I’m manually doing colours I pick things like this as if I was shading.
there’s a lot more I could put in as well, but it really varies on the picture how I do the glow…it is usually just fiddling around with styles and colours though.
I have to reblog this
Please like/reblog this post if you found the tutorial helpful! ♥
When I was trying to figure out paint tools sai I had a hard time finding helpful tutorials.
So I’ve decided to post some things I’ve discovered that were useful. (And maybe might be useful to you)
i’ve had sai for 3 years and i never knew some of this
How to Draw Gesture.
This is very important. People have said they liked my drawings especially because the lines feel smooth, and dynamic. I’m merely applying the gestures and curves this guy is talking about. Like the video shows, it’s the feel of the drawing that comes first, through gesture, then add the details.
oh gosh i cannot exaggerate the importance enough this was pretty much half of my sophomore art class and after that I can say my figures improved VERY DRAMATICALLY also learning with 30 second gestures is a great way to loosen up and feel the spirit of the model and their movement and action it can be really fun and relaxing I highly recommend
This thing is pretty much the reason why I harp on other artists and tell them to do quicksketches whenever they say something like ‘oh my poses are all so stiff’ or ‘I can’t draw poses’ or ‘I just can’t draw people’. Doing this stuff can really loosen up your drawing arm and give you ideas on how to work on new poses. Most people have somebody they can get to model for them, too, and if you lack live models you can find pose sets online.
