Ok this is my third tutorial. using Paint Tool SAI

In this tutorial i will explain my way of shading, is a very simple and easy way.

ok. first grab a line art o make a lineart if you dont have one. Im using this one:

2.- select a basic color for your creature, i pick an dark orange, and fill all the imagen.

3.- now i pick the magic wand and select the color outside the lineart, and delete it or erase it.http://smallspets.herobo.com/images/selectanddelete.png

4.- create a new layer and pick the airbrush tool with a dencity of 32% with out any effect or texture. pick a lighter color and paint part of the body, as you can see in the image i chose areas near the edge of the lineart. with a darker color i paint some of the areas also near the edge of the lineart. you can see the different colors in the next image:

5.- now i create a new layer and make some lines, creating a pattern for the horse, but you can make anything you want or do dont add anything at all. http://smallspets.herobo.com/images/pattern.png

6.- i pick the pen tool and chose the white color and make some lines creating the effect of an intense light.http://smallspets.herobo.com/images/randomwhitelines.png

7.- now i create a new layer and move it on top of the lineart, i chose the pencil tool wiht the streak effect and start making the hair of the horse. http://smallspets.herobo.com/images/Hair.png

Finished:


and you are done... pretty simple right?

if you have doubt with any of the steps feel free to tell me and i will try to explained it better =D




This tutorial is awesome as usual. :'D I love how the horse turns out at the end. ouo

I'm confused on one thing though; how do you make the extra-bright white highlights? o:

i create a new layer and then select the pen tool and pick the white color, and i just make a white line i always use the size of 6 for the bigger lines and then change the size to 3 to create some random lines near the big one. please note that the big white line is near the lightest color so it creates a special effect.
Here is the image at 400% :

and you can see that they are simple white lines and some white circles
