Tutorial: SAI Manga Eye Watercolor by airibbon Tutorial: SAI Manga Eye Watercolor by airibbon
first of all, thank you minakami sensei~!!! for teaching me how to use sai.

this is a tutorial on how to draw eye as in my latest illustration "Skirt" [link] the one that Minakami sensei helped me with
this is watercolor coloring using sai

the images is kinda big because i want to point out the teeny weeny icons. I hope this helps some of my friends that still needed help in drawing eyes.

...then... i continue my meditation now. Ommmm....

Unlike Photoshop which you can download for brushes, SAI has no such features. Instead, you are able to create your own custom made tool by changing the setting and save it as your custom made tool.

That's a pretty good pencil setting, I went ahead and copied the settings into my version as well.. ^^; You could probably do a lot with making digital watercolor+colored-pencil with those kinds of tools, kinda...

Your eye looks like a traditional drawing - it would definitely suit the aquarel imitation style. Thank you!

airibbon Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
because its colored in water color style, so it looks like traditional
