SAI PANELING TUTORIAL by purplekecleon SAI PANELING TUTORIAL by purplekecleon
ASK QUESTIONS IN THE DESCRIPTION AND ILL TRY TO ANSWER!! W@W!!!1
it takes me seriously like 1-2 minutes to do panels this way! there's a way to do it in photoshop too but with the line tool!! sai's is a little quicker
this whole tutorial took 60 minutes to make!!!! ALL OF IT!! i promise it's super quick to enact!!
sometimes I hear people can't use shift to make a straight line: PLEASE make sure you CLICK ONCE (are not holding the mouse button), and then move the cursor where you want the line to end up, then HOLD SHIFT, then CLICK ONCE AGAIN!! if it doesn't work for you you MIGHT have an old version of SAI!

As for making textures to use: google them!!!

it's on tumblr too for easy sharing!! : [link]

This is really helpful! I wonder, though, what size is your canvas? I am afraid I might be working too big myself. Also, do you make use of the stabilizer, and if you do, which setting? Anyway, thank you for creating this.

AH this is even easier than the vector thing my SAI has I think. I think it'll be a lot quicker. IF I'M NOT LAZY AHA.
'NYWAY THANK YOU this'll save my life for future reference. I know where to look for textures, though not for these type of textures- meh! Maybe i'll have better luck on DA. The problem is actually downloading them into SAI, anyway.

It's been a while now since you post this but I happen to know some screentones for SAI so here: toadsdontexist.deviantart.com/…. I think there's a guide on how to use it there. ;P You can try using the dotted thing as screentones, it pretty much looks like it.

They were random letters because SAI either couldn't read the file name, so they turn into random numbers and things.
I'm not really sure why you can't find any, but I will try to help.
