Even though this is a photoshop tutorial, I'm fairly sure the same effect would do in sai... >///<
lolz I'll do my best to practice on coloring too! Won't be exactly copying your style of course, or anyone's, but these tutorials are awesome! I'm never good at shading. TAT

Thank you for your awesomeness!!!!!!!!!

I guess it can, but I'm not sure. I don't use SAI.
You can copy if you want, but I don't think you can. Your own style comes when you try again and again, using references and others artworks as inspiration.

Good luck, and thank you for using my tutorial! :D

It's been a while since the last time I found something like this! Most of the tutorials here are using tablet in lineart and coloring. Thank you for this! :D

By the way, I suck big time in shading! D:

I did this for the very same reason! ^w^ DevArt were lacking good tutorials for non-tablet users.

You suck? How come? : o

I know right. And tablet is very pricey!

I'm no good in doing the shading, honestly.

ah.. :iconsweatdropplz: i can leave the eye-coloring to paintoolSAI and the magical luminosity layer coz i am very satisfied in how i make eye -w-
but anyhow you saved me by giving me the shading tuts *^* i have a seriously big problem with shading hair and most hair tuts i find use the marker tool, which can only give satisfying results when you use a tablet T.T
truth to be told i was surprised when you mentioned you use mouse .w. it encourages me to do more, since i found a good example -w- i now know i don't need a tablet to be a good artist...
so i thank you ^^

I'm very glad you feel that way! :D Funny how a lot of people think you need an expensive tablet to be a good artist.... you're not the first person who have said just that to me! But rest assured, you can become great with just a few essential things! :D

i dont understand why you add a new layer over the line layer bcz and i cant add the lighter color over the iris.
and how many radius at the gaussian blur?
Reply
:iconnjung:
NJung Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2012
I add the new layer and put the mode to screen, so the eyes seems more radiant.
The blur depends on what looks good. ^_^

When I lock the copied layer of the eye "bubbles" I can't paint the golden color...
Reply
:iconnjung:
NJung Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2012
Have you locked it correct? with the first lock on the panel, not the second?
Reply
:iconannahiwatari:
AnnaHiwatari Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Okay.. what I do is: create a new layer above all layers, paint on some bubbles, change the blend mode of that layer to Screen, copy that layer, lock the copy with "lock all" (the last lock icon) and then it won't paint...

I tried everything and every kind of locks but it doesn't work... :(
Reply
:iconnjung:
NJung Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2012
You're NOT supposed to lock it with the little "padlock"... you shall lock it with that little icon that looks like a transparent block... it's the "lock transparent pixels"-lock! It will allow you to color above the colors, but without coloring "outside" the shape.
Does that make any sense?^^

Oh yeah! I tried on Sting's eyes but the pupil is small so it didn't have effect.
I'll use it when I color some other lines ;)

But using screen blending mode makes image too shiny

That really depends on the quality of the computer and on the color-settings in Photoshop.

what do you do to make lucy's hair looks shiny? or you just add another shading?

I just added a new highlight! I've used 4 shades of yellow on her hair, that's what makes the effect! ^_^
