process tutorial by viria13 process tutorial by viria13
sooo here is a tutorial you've been asking for:)Some of you at least,others just said YES:D
Anyway,haha,it looks like "drawing for dummies" ahaha XDD sorry about that.
There are just quite a lot of people(I guess) who has never used SAI or whatever else so I decided to make it quite clear.Because I remember myself staring at all those buttons,haha:D
I said I am not very good in it,but it took quite a lot of time so I would be really appreciate if you could comment:)

and anyway,hope it helped:aww:

EDIT:it seem like quite a lot of people(my mother included) said it was better without texture thing.It seems like it true this time,but I tried to make a tutorial like I do always draw a picture,so..haha,but you're right though XD

EDIT 2: ~TweedPawn 11 hours ago
LAWWWLLLL I totally thought this said "Princess Tutorial" But it is still very nice even though it has nothing to do with princesses.

ahahahahahahah oh my god ahahahahahahaah XDDDD

I did everything as required for the first step yet the line is coming out super thick... idk????

ur program may work a lil diff than hers, or u might've pressed too hard (if ur using a tablet)... maybe try a smaller size? hope this helped.

I don't understand this texture business. Is it just like a filter over the top of your art?

Also is there a reason you don't use black for your lineart other than personal preference?

Salutations! Um, I really like this process tutorial and it's really useful, but it seems to give softer shadows?? And I was just looking at some of your art and some of it has harder shadows, so I was just wondering do you still use the same process with that? Thanks :)

Hi! Im just wondering if sketchbook program have textures too, How I use them?
tessthetiger Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
thanks so  much. this helps a lot! I was just wonderin if ther are cheaper apps like this for digital drawing that range up to 5 dollars? im sorta out of money :) thanks
Clarity-Art Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
There's Sketchbook Pro, or Procreate, although Procreate is six dollars.  I have it, and it's worth the price.  You just need to download the procreate handbook or read the PDF, because I was incredibly stupid and went ahead without reading the handbook.  

Sketchbook Pro is a dollar cheaper and has some tools Procreate doesn't, such as a duplication tool, but I've heard it sometimes doesn't save drawings.  Hope this helped! ;)

Wow this is fantastic and really helpful! If you don't mind me asking, how do you make your lineart match the color of what you're coloring?
Vynndetta Featured By Owner May 31, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
When you set the lineart layer to multiply, the colors underneath it will show through a little bit- blending the line color and the flat color. This can look back sometimes like if you have a yellow line and a blue color. Then you'll have a random green line in your lineart.

Just think of the colors you plan to use for the picture. Any shade of brown or mid to dark orange for your lineart works with most all colors (except blue sometimes). A dark grey brown, dark blue or mid to dark grey line works better for a picture you plan to have more cool toned colors in.

Sorry I know you didn't ask me, I just figured I'd try to explain it to you cuz I know she can't get to all comments.

hope I made sense >.<

I LOVE YOU SO FREAKING MUCH RIGHT NOW YOU COULD NOT EVEN IMAGINE!!!!!!!! I have been trying to figure out how to combine two files on SAI for MONTHS; I've been having to take it to Photoshop to put in a background or texture and then converting the file makes the lineart layer into a normal one and it's been driving me CRAZY for so long now!
I seriously love you.

Totalrandomness Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I've been following your art on Tumblr and was so happy to discover this tutorial because I was wondering how you did your lines and sketches :) I've been trying to mimic the brush you use on SAI, but I've already modified my brush settings so much I can't seem to get it back - your screenshot of the brush settings doesn't show the advanced settings - do you have them changed at all? What are they set at? Sorry to be a bother, I'm just curious :)
