Shading tutorial (Paint Tool SAI) by Alumx Shading tutorial (Paint Tool SAI) by Alumx
Mah first digital tutorial!

Well was planning to make a little tutorial for my friend that had some problems with shading...but I've put more work in it than expected so here it is!

I don't use Paint Tool SAI, so Im sure that there may be other ways to shade, but it works just fine!

:iconfluttershyyayplz:I Hope it can help someone
So much Fluttershy! yay~

Do you think this would work in GIMP, too?
Reply

Alumx Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Im not sure, I dont know what kind of tools GIMP do have, but you can use blur effect to get similar results...
Try to look around in DA or internet for GIMP tutorials =/

In Photoshop I shade a little bit differently, there key is to have very low flow on the brush.
And thanks :3
