Sorry to ask but is there any specific settings the marker should be on? I can hardly see my strokes half the time with the thing so I end up using the brush tool. xDD

Oh, I'm certain I use it on the default settings actually :0 I only use it for shading though, using it as a base colouring layer wouldn't work too well because it's so transparent :'D

Really? o-o;; I've tried to use it as a method of shading before and it was still transparent.. hmm. I've been fiddling around with the settings more so let's see if I can get it working. :D <3 I usually either use the pen tool for base or brush tool.

Weird :O
Yeah, I use the pen tool for base too, or occasionally the binary tool with pen pressure.

Yeah if you want it to stand out more. :3 I know! The weirdest things usually happen to me using SAI. I think the program has it out for me..srsly. I still love it. D: The blending is just so much more fluid in SAI than in PS. Anyways I shall stop my ramble, this really does help. D: So thank you for posting this up. <3

Could one attempt to use this technique on something other than SAI? My laptop is not compatible with the program... ;v;

found the error.... Sai is a windows exclusive program as of late. you have 2 options i can see: buy a windows desktop (rec for art) or use vmware and run windows on that. vm is virutal machine so it will be running on your mac while you run the mac os. kinda like a mini pc in a mac.

This is awesome and just what I needed since I've been wanting to learn some new tricks in SAI, as I'm pretty new to the program.

Jen why are you so amazing?

Also, I want a tablet and SAI just so I can test this out. And, you know, learn to not suck as much at tablets as when I tried using yours. XD
