Coloring Tutorial: [link]

EDIT: I just added the music version to DeviantArt ^^ Hit "S" on your keyboard to play it, then "X" to turn it off.

Use the LEFT and RIGHT keys on your keyboard to flip through the pages, and then use the UP key to return to the table of Contents.

IF THE KEYS DON'T WORK then just click on the image first and THEN use the keys.

Some of you might wonder why I didn't just do the Sora picture in the coloring tutorial... well... I wouldn't be able to do the whole perspective talk that everyone keeps asking me about XD Happy reading, I hope it's not too confusing.

I had some help with this one, so... I'd like to thank my boyfriend just cause, then some of my friends on my FFXI Linkshell and my Coworkers for helping me proofread and dealing with my frustrations @_@

And super super super thanks to all of you guys for your support :)

As an alternative to Sai(with maybe slightly less functionality)
There is a program called "Mischief" which has a raster-like drawing interface but draws in vector graphics.
So the vector graphics are infinitely scaleable, but you only get to use brushes for the lines.
It has an unlimited free trial with three basic brushes, one which is great for inking as it is a pressure-sensitive styled brush.
as well as a "full featured" trial for about a month, much like Sai.

I just wish the curve tool in SAI was more... how can I say... "effective".

Sure, it allows you to change regular lines into curves with the whole anchor points thing, but the curves will not turn out smooth. You have to add more anchor points to adjust the curviness, but it usually turns out a disaster in the process... well, to me anyway.

hi suzuran, i am just wandering. when do we know when to use 2 or 3 perspective points?
Reply
:iconsuzuran:
suzuran Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Oh!! It's up to you on how complex you want your image to be.

Definitely if you use 3 perspective points, it will be more detailed, time consuming, but overall it MIGHT look more impressive, but I would suggest just practicing one perspective point to begin with!

:iconnocturnalventus:

and one more, do you just stretch the grid randomly? 
Reply
:iconsuzuran:
suzuran Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
make sure it's in proportion!  So hold down shift when you try to make it bigger in the corners!

But what if it's in sketch and not in photoshop? It worked in pc but I am wandering what if it's in paper, cause sometimes i draw on paper for better sketch

:iconsuzuran:
suzuran Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
ohh. then you just have to manually readjust your perspective points! There's no other way around that @_@  Just remember to draw the lines very very very light so they're easy to erase! 
Reply
:iconnocturnalventus:
NocturnalVentus Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2014  Hobbyist
are there any limits on each line? like for example 2 perspective line, 1 dot needs how many stretched lines and the other how many lines? sorry if i ask too much
Reply
:iconsuzuran:
suzuran Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
nope! just use as many lines as you need! :)  I try to use as many as I can (which is why I find it easier to draw on the computer, cause erasing all those lines afterwards is really time consuming!)  and it's ok!

this really helped and has alot of good tips, that's why i saved it a few months ago. but now i have a differant question for you: how do you mkae a flash thing like this. all i want is a picture and if people press there < or > key they go to the next page (so now what you did with the red). do you have any idea where i can find a good tutorial about that. or could you make 1 yourself

(if the pictures go to the next by themselfs its ok too)

I always used normal Ink tool on a more normal Layer, avoiding these "complicated" weird Lineart layers.
NOW.
Now.
Now I understand what it's all about. Have to try.

Just thanks for your patience on making this tutorial :)
