Tutorial and Tips for a quick painting in SAI by NanFe Tutorial and Tips for a quick painting in SAI by NanFe
tutorial for

"quick" here is around 2,5 hours I think, it should have been so much sooner if I hadn't been making the tutorial,so many artblock attacked me and ruined the mood whenever I gave notes to each steps

remember, this is my very own personal way to paint a picture, I have tried a lot of ways depending on tutorials and find a way that suits me most..., you should try as many ways as possible that suits your style, so that you can feel more comfortable and finish a painting more quickly...

,,, I want to say something, but my head is fucked up right now, if you have any questions, please put a comment down here, I will answer if they haven't been answered, please ask something interesting...

Hello, im just trying out your tutorial but i dont know why when im painting on multiply and im trying to put light colours i cant;/ its not so bright as i want even im using white colour on my palette. It so okay when im using this on separate layer under multiply, multiply lyer as well, but when im trying on only one layer i cant;/ I tried with and without blending but effect is the same.

did the setting rock 07 for the pen tool come with your version of sai?

did you take the layer off multiply when you started smoothing everything out, or did you start a new layer? I didn't see the multiply anymore

I merge it down and paint freely

It's so awesome! I will definitely try it someday to practice.
And could you maybe put a picture/tutorial of some of your brushes/settings for them, if you're actually using some other than the default ones? Because your pictures are so amazing with them :heart:
