Let's go see the stars by aiki-ame Let's go see the stars by aiki-ame
"Let's go see the stars........"

why did we make so many promises that will never be fulfilled?


--------------

i feel her body's a bit puffed up...like my fish that died of dropsy...>-<. and maybe arm too long....meh..idk....

I've recorded the coloring process in this one, here's the youtube link to the first part which took me an hour and ten minutes to upload....pretty hideous considering the video itself's only 5 something mins...==

[link]

it's fast forwarded (to reduce file size....). Hope they are not too fast...>.<;; Basically you go through the same process of selection --> fill (applied using bucket) --> shading 1 (applied alternating between marker, water, and eraser tool) --> shading 2 (marker, airbrush) ---> highlight with a layer in "addition" mode (if necessary)

I have left out the selection process since it'll be the same for each section. And i like to zoom in and out a lot, sorry if that makes you dizzy! >.<;;

This is only the hair and skin part, i'll have to upload the other parts some other time....>~<;; (we might run out f monthly bandwih)

So this probably constitutes as my "tutorial" as several people have been asking for....since i'm lazy and bad at layouting, making a still image tutorial with descriptive instructions would be too bothersome....lol, I hope a video recording works. If you have any questions just shout out. I'll keep updating each video i upload.

YOU HAVE TO TEACH ME HOW TO USE SAI PROPERLY XD
This is AWESOME. ♥

I have a question.

How did you make the hair look somewhat silky? o.o
I also want to know how to make like the brush smooth out at the end while coloring but not having to end up erasing the other end of the brush stroke? ^^ I hope you get what I mean. I'm dying to know how you did that *-*

I've done one myself but I can't seem to make the hair somewhat silkeh owo

I hope you reply ^^<3

Again, this is just stunning<3

Hi, thanks~~

Answer to your question, first thing i use a tablet, if you don't have a tablet you can't get this effect. And secondly i use the marker tool for smoothing out the end, this is a preset tool in SAI, so no need to make your own. ^^;

I watched your tutorial for the hair and skin - wow, it never ceases to amaze how differently people's approaches are to colouring to achieve such fantastic pieces. I am curious though about the marker and water brushes in sai, that there wouldn't be anything similar in photoshop elements 7? If not, would you know how I could change the default brush settings to achieve the same effects? :)

aiki-ame Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2011  Student Digital Artist
I haven't quite used photoshop elements before (as far as i know it's a smaller version of photoshop?), but I'm know the brush settings can be adjusted similar to SAI in photoshop CS. either way, you can download SAI the trial version. ^-^

True, true, but I'm really familiar with pse7 now, so I'll download a trial, check out the settings for marker and water and make a similar brush in pse7 :D

not only are your sketching and colouring skills awesome, but you piece makes steampunk fashionable (I'm sure it's got some steampunk elements, ie her headpiece and wings on the back).
