Tutorial: Colouring with the Fill Bucket in SAI by forte-girl7 Tutorial: Colouring with the Fill Bucket in SAI by forte-girl7
Someone asked me a while ago (too long actually ><) for a tutorial on how I colour/shade on SAI. I think it was just shading, but I figured I'd go over some other things anyway. The shading bit is in the next bit which will be up.... soon : D

But yeah! This is for colouring using the fill bucket on Paint Tool SAI. Hope this helps you guys out : ) And look out for Part 2!

When I colour from bucket it colours the entire person and not only the face like for yours. Dunno what I'm doing wrong!:S

Do you have both the lineart layer and the Paint Bucket set to "Selection Source"?

Love your tutorials. They're very helpful.

I have a question for you, how do you make your line art? It varies in thickness and looks wonderful. Do you use inkscape for that? I tried using inkscape, and it did give me easy line art, but I couldn't transfer that line art to Sai to color with the bucket tool like you did in this tutorial. How do you make such natural lines?

And if you can't color an inkscape line art in Sai, how would you color it?

Hi there! Glad to be of help!

Regarding my lineart nowadays, I use a Wacom Intuos4 pen tablet, so I draw all the lines directly onto the program. I rarely use Inkscape for lineart anymore. With that said, I'm not sure how to necessarily colour an Inkscape lineart in SAI.... However! I can do a test and get back to you on that when I get the time : )

Oh that must be nice. Well I was able to take the linework from inkscape and open it in Sai, then I just used the bucket tool and marked the layer and bucket as Selection Source, and it works! I hate spending hours and hours on linework that I've already drawn in pencil, so I'm thrilled about this shortcut. Thanks for all your help :]
