night sky tutorial . by megatruh night sky tutorial . by megatruh

as has been requested by many :dummy::heart:

I'm not confident about my english guys, sorry if I did mistakes~
This is just an example of a night sky. you can find a better, greater night skies in photographs. so I recommend you to browse a lot of photos for inspiration ;) for example, the shape of the milky way, I did a very funny one in this tutorial :lol: but there are many ways to create them. let your imagination runs wild <3
and before you ask, yes, I only use Paint tool SAI. no other programs :'D

good luck, and I hope this tutorial helps~

update 1:
:bulletwhite: you can also copy and paste instead of using dulipcate layer option.
:bulletwhite: if you dont have addition blend mode on your SAI I recommend you to try luminosity ;) I think they're the same.

Gorgeous, well-written-out, and I'm going to use this for my Stargazers pic. And probably for the Commandant's Eldest pic.

(You know what, this is an excellent step-by-step, so I may just use it regularly.)

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental
hospital, because she killed her mom and dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the
staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that the best idea was to get rid of her so
they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the
machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on
a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you
and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and
she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently if you copy and paste
this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of you life tomorrow.You
will either get kissed or asked out, if you break the chain you will see a little dead girl in your room.
