hello~ :D just a suggestion since (personally) this has been helpful to me:

it is probably a good idea to make a reference/practice piece where you do small/quick practices (shading, etc) for a variety of effects/colour styles that you use
(It is just like how traditional artists do swatches for new paints)
hope you are enjoying painting with illustudio~

I don't really save anything in transparency so I'm not very sure about saving directly in the programme. But you can always save it in Photoshop (Psd) format and do so in photoshop ^_^ hope that helps!

I found it! > u < ! It's in the "save as" button (the view for "paper" has to be removed it's below all the layers) Then one save it as "png" and "change" attributes and instead of RGB one have to select RGBA and it saves as transparency ( ; u ; ) *celebrates*

and Thanks! lol

Thanks for the awesome tutorial! Ehh. I can't really find out how you used the calligraphy brush to stamp the flower petals on in IllustStudio...Can you explain plezz? 8D

:iconizayaaa:
IZAYAAA Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2011
thanks QwQ
about the brush thing
1)draw part of whatever pattern u want at some empty space(u cant adjust the size too much when stamping so make sure its about the average size, unless u want to ctrl +t to re-size one by one Q_Q which was what happened to me)
2)select it
3)right click,go to bottom of the list and select create brush
4)um when the window pops up I'm not very sure about adjusting in detail, so normally I just click okay
5)tada! its now under the list of tools when you click calligraphy brush, for mine I set the settings to "stamp"
-setting it to "ribbon" can also be quite useful

I can't find the calligraphy brush (but I have the stamp brush), and nothing happens when I right click the selection... What version IllustStudio do you have? It's probably an issue with mine...I'm trying to update it.Thanks a lot anyways! 8D

Yes I said this tutorial can be used on Sai..(and probably only sai and illustudio due to the Brush tool)

Sai users would know that I used the functions that you can use in Sai with the only exception of the pattern brush. (layer clipping, brush tool. etc)[I've been using Illustudio like SAI cos im used to SAI actually]

uh if you want me to take sai screen shots or sth...the main part of this tutorial is the colouring method not pointing out where exactly the Sai tools are (O_O just read and click?)Um yes I mentioned that at the start of the tutorial

Is Paint Tool SAI similar to Photoshop? *uses Photoshop*
Reply
:iconizayaaa:
IZAYAAA Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2011
Umm not really especially for colouring I use brush,marker and water tool A Lot for colouring in paint tool sai.

Those you can add colour and blend at the same time without changing tools. Otherwise photoshop and paint tool sai is around the same if you dont count the load of extra tools for editing photos.

But unless you can modify photoshop tool until its like paint tool sai's brush tool. I dont think sai can be substituted by photoshop (for me at least)

OOh this works for both paint tool sai and illustudio?
May i ask, which do you prefer?
Illuststudio of Sai?
Reply
:iconizayaaa:
IZAYAAA Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2011
I prefer Illustudio :D if I use paint tool Sai I sometimes need to switch between that and Photoshop (for textures/brushes,etc) It is also easier to fill in base colours with the bucket tool in Illustudio(less pesky white dots to fill in manually)

Actually that's Illuststudio. It's a mix of Sai and Photoshop. 50 bucks or so at illuststudio.net
