here’s the pixel tutorial that a few ppl have been asking for!! i’m not v good at tutorials but„ (bonus right eye silliness) also sorry abt the rlly poor handwriting ;;;
Once you get all your flats down, throw them in a folder, create a layer above that set to whatever weird blend mode that is (the one like multiply, yo), add a motherfuckin’ fringe set to two (assuming your canvas is like 8.5x11 at 300dpi), and put a layer clip on it.
Then pick this color and lay down some basic cell shading with whatever tool of preference ye so desire. Next switch over to the water tool (highly suggest using my settings for this btw) with the brush type set to rough_flat and use quick, light strokes to blend the shading in.
IT IS THE MOST MAGICAL THING I HAVE EVER DISCOVERED ON SAI
the software is similar to emote/emofuri, a little more complicated though, with modeling, texture maps and set up is different, but at least it’s in English! with an extensive how to manual and dozens of sample models to play around with
there’s free version you can download
I picked up this program almost instantly, after struggling with emofuri all day (T^T I’ll try again another time), I really just wanna jump into this style of animating
i’ve been making colour palettes from posts i’ve seen on my dash, and it was a fun exercise until i realized i might’ve made too many
so here are my favourites!
Finally uploading my Hiragana and Katakana Charts! Yay!
Just to give you a quick explanation, hiragana and katakana are both Japanese alphabets, used with Kanji (Chinese Characters).
Originally, Japan didn’t have a writing system and when they found the need for one they borrowed the Chinese writing system. Because Chinese and Japanese are such different languages, hiragana was created to fill in the gaps (you will find out more about this as you learn more Japanese).
Katakana was later created to translate English words, and some other foreign words, that had no equivalent word in Japanese. Katakana is used for foreign names including the names of countries, the names of people, etc. It can also be used to emphasis Japanese words.
Well, history lesson over! Let’s start learning how to write in Japanese!! Feel free to print out my Hiragana and Katakana Charts.
