hair, eyes, skin in sai pt 2 by valued hair, eyes, skin in sai pt 2 by valued


tutorial asked for by some friends
just focuses on hair, eyes and skin in sai, some notes about color selections
in 2 parts because sai does not create files bigger than 10000 pixels and i used minimal cropping
words are written in paint where i cropped the screenshots so if you find something difficult to read feel free to ask me
i did my best to explain both HOW and WHY, instead of just showing progress pics because thats not really a tutorial..
this part goes through skin and about halfway through eyes. the next part has the other half of eyes, hair and then finishing.
i wont be posting the finished image because i wont be completing it. its a scrapped line art i just used for this tutorial, i only colored the hair, eyes and skin on it and dont plan on doing any more.

feel free to ask any questions about it (: this is all done in paint tool sai with a tablet. you can do some of these effects without a tablet but you will have a hard time with water brush, youll have to play with the sliders to get the right effect.

WARNING. THIS FILE IS HUGE. (not as big as the other tho)
if this resolution is going to kill your computer, i have the individual steps saved and can send them to you but... i really dont want to do that... lol..

i wish you typed instead of writing it, i really like the way the hair is colored but didn't understand a thing.

This is such a good tutorial, you should make a part 3 for the clothes and other details, like the apples. It would be useful for a lot of people. ^^
