I was feeling all enthusiastic this morning.
I had a plan!
That was to get Easy Paint tool SAI going again on my old laptop.
I’ve always felt a bit… “Meh” about Photoshop and it’s arting abilities. Mostly because I find the inking/lining process to feel a bit cluncky in it. It’s hard to explain, but SAI has a really nice lining function, you can smooth out your lines without them being all shaky. Which is harder to do in photoshop.
Or so I thought.
I tell you something, I was over the moon to get it all going again and was thrilled to be able to line something half decently.
When it came to shading.
The program just fell flat on it’s ass. Unless I want to try my hand at cell shading – which doesn’t really seem to suit my art direction anymore.
