Mini tutorial: Shading techniques in SAI by secret-pony Mini tutorial: Shading techniques in SAI by secret-pony
Another secret revealed!
Also apologies for typo's. I don't have a working spellcheck.

If you're looking for more resources for drawing (ponies), check out my other tutorials:


My (poor) explanation on layer clipping: (one but last paragraph)

Q: Will you make a tutorial for PS/gimp/*insert any other program* ?
A: No. I never used any of those and I'm not going to find out for you. Search DA or Google.

Heh, I tend to use the blur tool when I try shading. It really helps create the gradual effect of shadows. ^_^
But I shall definitely try this out. :D

I've been doing that too lately x3
But you can combine it with layer modes to get darker shading or unexpectedly different colors. :nod:

No, sorry. I would rather not have anyone use my work as a base for lineart. ^^;
But thank you for asking me first instead of just using my work without telling me.
