Tutorial: Shading with Masks in SAI by forte-girl7 Tutorial: Shading with Masks in SAI by forte-girl7
Part 2 of the Paint Tool Sai tutorial! This bit covers shading with Masks! Hope it helps!

Also, I do have to thank ~BechnoKid for originally teaching me how to do this. Passing the knowledge onto you!

I don't think you can select multiple layers in SAI - yet. Apparently there's a version 2 coming out soon that will support that, plus many other things : )

Right it think I understand. So basically its a bit like clipping group?

More or less, yes.

Question: Up until now, I've just used a normal layer at 40-50% opacity in between my lines coloring layers. I use a color for my shadows that is a bit darker than the color the shadow is over. What is the difference between what I have been doing and this method? Are there any added benefits to doing it this way, like being able to do different kinds of shadows?

No, that's fine. If you look at one of my other tutorials (this one, I believe: forte-girl7.deviantart.com/art… I say you can fill in the proper ares with just a darker colour instead of multiplying the shading layer over it. Doing it that way is just a quick and easy way to do it. Also, the reason for using a mask is just to keep things from going outside the lines, to keep it neat and whatnots

Hmm, I have a question. What works better this mask method or the Clipping group method? Aren't they both masks?
