Lineart Tutorial - PaintToolSAI by MayeMaya Lineart Tutorial - PaintToolSAI by MayeMaya
WARNING HUGE FILE. LIKE REALLY HUGE.

I don't want to know how many hours I've spent doing this... JUST TAKE IT AWAY FROM ME XD

So many of you requested it, so I've finally decided to do it. I've put REALLY big effort into this and tried really hard to make it understandable for everyone, even though my English is far from perfect. I hope this will be helpful for you. I'm going to do the colouring tutorial with this lineart too, so stay tuned! ♥


You can find the finished lineart here. Feel free to colour it ♥

Polacy, przepraszam za brak polskiej wersji, która miała być, a której prawdopodobnie nie będzie. Nie spodziewałam się że tyle czasu trzeba na to poświęcić i po prostu nie mogę sobie pozwolić na drugie tyle. Mimo to mam nadzieję, że wszystko zrozumiecie - starałam się nie szaleć ze słówkami. Zawsze możecie do mnie napisać z pytaniem o co mi chodziło : D

Compared to your techniques, mine seem so elementary and clumsy...

i just got paint tool sai, and im not sure how to get the effect where the line is thinner at the end. Know what i mean?

MayeMaya Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
You need tablet for this. But if you have one it should work without using any additional settings :) If your tablet's pen pressure doesn't work then it's probably tablet's fault, not SAI's, but you can try if it doesn't work in other programs too to be sure :)

I think you're talking about pressure sensitivity. If your tablet has it built in, all you should need to get it is to push down lighter when you're finishing your strokes. The harder and longer you press the thicker the line will be.

it is built in, how do i get it to work in sai?

It really is just a matter of your tablet. Most tablets should have pressure sensitivity (some with more levels than others.)

If your tablet has it built in and its not working in sai then check the tool settings. Under "size" there's another little bar that says "min size". Take that bar down to zero.

You can also go into advanced settings and make sure it's enabled there, too.
