This is very amazing! I love how you color!!!!
By any chance, do you know how to blur objects in painttool sai to give it more depth?
I have been using my mouse to mess with sai, and I simply have no clue how to do it. :(
Do you know any tutorials by chance?

wait I'm a little confused - what's the point of the gaussian blur? awesome tutorial btw, is there one for your chibis? :3

Thanks,
Hardcore Niaro Fan xD

to give a slight glow effect and a softer edge on the lineart u v u it's subtle but compare the overlay with and without the blur and you'd see what I mean

thank you!! and no i don't believe so but I color them the same when I shade them! i don't have a uniform style on my chibis so i feel it'd be hard to do a tut on them ;_; thanks tho

I...I don't understand how to do the effect thingy D: What peach color? What do you mean "copy it. paste it. Deform it."? D:>
I got how to do the ellipse and everything else I don't understand what you were saying there...
Reply
:iconniaro:
niaro Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2012
I don't know how to explain better than I did but umm the peach color is the pink I used for the circle and copy/paste and deform are all normal terms. I suppose try to read again because I have difficulties seeing where you're having difficulties;

download the new version. If you have the "Addition" layer still, you need to redownload from the english site and obtain the new one. The new one has "Luminosity" layers and such (:

well i actually use photoshop or sometimes sketchbook pro cause i'm using a mac computer but i know i can apply this technique in PS to (cause PS has multiply and that stuff), though i like SAI's tools in coloring better (my sister has it in her laptop).




This'll really help :D. i really like your coloring technique :3
