Um, I'm kind of new to using Paint Tool SAI *coughjustdownloadeditcough* but I've been wondering, if anyone has any idea on how to create a gradient, could they please tell me? I really want to try making a sky~ but, I must say, This tutorial, an absolutely AMAZING help.
megatruh Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2012
if you have other programs such as photoshop, you can use bucket tool to make gradient sky. but you can always use SAI too 8D just blend the colors using water tool. make sure you adjust the opacity below 50%

OHMYGOD! I don't see your folder the first time *yes yes I need glasses* thank you/o/ thank you so much _o-_
camiyu Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2011
have a question! (if you don't mind... ^_^;)

how about if you want to draw the character with that sky as background?

do you add the character later on (in SAI) with the sequence like this
doing the base of sky color in painter/PSD-->finish it at SAI-->open layer and start draw the characterin same file-->finish.

or like this...
finish the sky BG at SAI-->draw character at SAI (file, separately)-->then combine it just like you add texture (based like your texture tutorial)

sorry if kinda annoying. i frequently confused when dealing with any digital method ^^;

thank you
