* Please feel free to take from this tutorial a new technique: colouring with the fringe setting. I am okay if you draw the same style for practice, but please do not copy this style exactly (for commissions, especially). It's a bit off-putting to have my hard work taken advantage of. Tutorials are meant to teach you new tricks that you can incorporate into your work. And later on, I hope you will pass on your tricks to other artists!
* I used SAI and Opencanvas for the effects at the last step. Photoshop to save with transparency cause my SAI doesn't allow that. ^__^ Please link me to your results if you use this! I wanna see haha! ^__^ It's always much clearer if you see it in action! Maybe next time, you can join me in ....join.me! XD
Awh, this is really great ! ; 7 ; Thanks so much for offering all these tutorials , Oni ! u v u I love how open you are about your style to allow us younger artists to grow and expand on the things you lay out for us. It's very generous of you ; u ; Hopefully I can at least attempt to comprehend the things you've written - SAI's too complicated for me goshies Thankies again ! I just can't stop oh gosh you make so many helpful tutorials [/kicked] thanks so much !!! /hugs/ o v o
Thanks for purchasing! I hope it's helpful and teaches you some new tricks! 8D
Ah just a note though, please feel free to take from the tutorial the new colouring technique but please try not to draw 'sparkly chibies' exactly as I do~~ ;; u ;; )) I worked a long time to develop that chibi style and I feel a bit cheated if someone just copies it exactly * u *;;;
In SAI you can set the fringe effect in the area above the layers box. ♥ it'll be a drop down menu where you can pick fringe and then you can adjust two sliding bars for the thickness and darkness of the edge effect : )
