Very Useful Tutorials (SAI)

Journal Entry: Sat Jan 28, 2012, 3:10 AM

I decided to compile this journal featuring some tutorials that I find very useful for SAI.

Now, keep in mind, I'm a fan of tutorials that teach skills, not 'step-by-step' draw this line, then this line, then this line, tutorials, because those types are in reality very useless as you cannot apply them things not similar to the situation they are displayed in.

These are all tutorials I have looked at and tried to use in my art, see if you can spot some tricks that I've used in these tutorials!

^This deviation is a fantastic tool for people new to Paint Tool SAI, I highly recommend it.
