Paint Tool Sai: Tips and Tricks by secret-pony Paint Tool Sai: Tips and Tricks by secret-pony
This is a tutorial I made a whole while back, before my brony days :giggle:
Download for full view.
You can also read it here: [link] (you might need to log in on a gaia account to see it, please don't post in that thread! ^^;)

It's not really a tutorial on the progress of drawing, but just some tips on how to use Paint Tool SAI more efficiently. It's also a great time saver for people who begin using this program or who want to try it out.
Not everything is in there though, I discovered more things since I made this. :giggle:

It's uploaded originally on my old account: :iconirelys:
Since I wasthinking about doing a tutorial on pony art anyway, I figured it would be a good idea to re-upload it here as well ^^


The drawing used in this tutorial is this one:

This helped a bit. But is the sharp point at the end of the brush only for pen tablet? I use mouse, but is it possible to get the sharp point using mouse?

Sorry, this is for tablet and pen only. The sharp end is created when you lift the pressure off the pen at the end of a stroke.

I'm not sure what you mean by "template", do you mean the line art?
If so, I use the default brush tool for my lines.
You can find the settings I used here. :3

My stabilizers don't seem to be working with the sharper end thing.

I'm not entirely sure what you mean.

You're talking about the stabilizer function with values 1 to 15, right?
Hmm... let's start with some basic troubleshooting questions:
- are you drawing with a tablet?
- if yes, which brand are you using? Does it have pen pressure?
- if yes, are you using the pen pressure? Are you able to create thicker/darker lines when drawing if you press harder on with your pen?
