Tutorial: Shading Methods in SAI Part A by forte-girl7 Tutorial: Shading Methods in SAI Part A by forte-girl7
I tried to upload both of these tutorials TOGETHER but the file was too big for dA, so I cut it in half.

Anyway, welcome to another tutorial! This is Part A of this set - Part B will be up shortly! This tutorial covers three different shading methods I regularly use on Paint Tool SAI. This one here covers cell-shading.

You can find Part B here: [link]

Check out my other tutorials at the following links!

May I ask what that green thing in Sai does? It's highlighted green on your lineart layer. I've been trying to find out forever.

That signifies that the Layer is the Selection Layer

Haha yeah. The character there is actually a cobbler-in-training herself, so I thought it would be fun.

That's really cute! Good to see a tip of the hat to Tac, such a cutie.

Actually, human eyes are more sensitive to the colour blue, so you'd be right on most shadows "appearing" blue.

Nice tutorial! :) I just thought I would add too the "color of the shade" part.
The color your shade has actually depends on what color your light-source has. For example, the light outside (during daytime) tend to have a yellow tone, therefore the shadow turns its opposite color (blue). If your light-source is red the shadow would turn green, and so on...
Hope that helped! :hug:

The site where you can buy a license, here: [link] says 5250 Japanese Yen - that's a little under $70 USD
