I've been wanting to get better at art and painting in SAI, and I must thank you because this really helped me a lot since I want to go into the art workforce. Thank you so much. c:

Hello! This tutorial is extremely useful! Thanks for uploading ;u; I'm trying it out right now ;u; though...with the overlay layer, I tried using the method with extremely light hair (yellow going to white; overlay layer is very dark red) and, using pastel blue/violet as light source colors, it...well, it's practically nonexistent OTL any tips? ;o; Thanks again TuT

Ahh hello hello! Thank you for taking a look at my tutorial! Hue hue. <:

As for white or lighter colors, I usually

a. make the colors a bit darker than they're meant to be (if possible), and then go over with a white or even a light source on a "luminosity" layer.

OR

b. Do the shading of the hair with white + blue-gray or blonde + orange on a separate layer (under the overlay, like with the skin), and use the overlay to only tint the hair.
I hope this makes sense! >.<

Waaa thanks so much ;u; I did the second one (light blond hair with orange shading; overlay only for the white highlights) Also, if you don't mind me asking, what's your criteria when choosing the overlay color? ;u;)~

Of course lovee!
Typically, I just make sure the overlay color doesn't "tint" the colors of the character too much.

For example, I often use a blue-ish gray to color dark hair. Now if I wanted that a dark black color, a red overlay would make it look too warm and purple - so I would you a dark blue, or a dark brown.

Here// fav.me/d5mwi0d
I used a blue overlay with pink highlights. <:

Another example was if you were coloring over an orangey-yellow...a blue overlay would make it more brown and gross or maybe even green, and you certainly don't want that.

I HOPE THIS MAKES SENSEE.
Usually I just try out several colors! (Blue, red, or violet - and occasionally a neutral red-brown.)

Is Paint tool Sai better than photoshop for this kind of art?

P.S I don't have SAI, but I see a lot of work done with it..))

:iconfuwaffy:
fuwaffy Featured By Owner May 12, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Kind of! Sai's brushes are more EASILY customizable.
For example, if you wanted a blending brush in photoshop you would have to make a brush that is basically a customized smear tool. In Sai there's different types of brushes and you just change the scroll bars and dropdown menus to customize them. <:

Which is why Sai is preferred for line art and coloring whereas photoshop is amazing for editing. >.<

Hope this helps!

photoshop is more for complicated things while Sai is more simple uses. It doesn't have a whole lot of filters and modes.

It's a different technique than what I'm used to but I love the affect you get with both the hair and the overlay layer. :3

I love your tut dear! So for the hair, you shaded it on the overlay? And you used a yellow and pinkish color to shade it?

O:
Just copy and paste your default "brush" on sai. (Right click it, select copy, move to an empty spot, select paste!)
And then rename your new brush, and change the settings to fit the ones I have here! (:

I hope that made sense..ahaha. XD
