In a Summer's Shade by AsakuraShinji In a Summer's Shade by AsakuraShinji
Original Character
Made with SAI + Photoshop

My exam is done and it's finally holiday...!!! :squee:
Time to draw to my heart's content, mwahahaha...

I'm practicing coloring grass and tree shade this time, and make a new character while I'm on it.
Even though she is an original character I randomly made, I just can't shake the feeling that I've seen her somewhere before... :?

Well, what's done is done... lol

I think I found the character that your thinking of is found in the anime " Invaders of the rokujyoma" Her name is Yurika nijino  38.media.tumblr.com/8301419eaf…

How do you color your drawings? Do you use layers and things? What tools do you use? Sorry for all the questions I'm trying to learn how to create my own things and color it but I don't know how to make it look AMAZING and professional like yours. Can you help me please XD

Yes, I think all digital artists will use layers to draw. It's one of the best things that digital art has. :>
Tools? For hardware, a laptop and wacom cintiq 13hd. The software, Clip Studio Paint.

If you want to self-learn, for starters I suggest you to look for tutorials here in DA, or try worldmangaacademy.com, if you're into anime/manga style. Also, look for references to help you learn right anatomy, shapes, and colors. Lastly, basically what everyone will tell you, practice and patience. ^^

I looked at the centq 13hd and it's expensive I think I've fainted. It'll probably take me a while to save enough for that X) Thank you for telling me though! 

Haha thank you! This honestly helped a lot!

This is just my opinion, but I think all wacom bamboo series tablet is already good enough for drawing any kinds of art. So unless you're going to use it for professional works, bamboo capture will do just fine. :)

Yeah, it will feel a bit weird at first, but don't worry. It'll take only a few days at most to get used to it. ^^

Wew, congrats! :D

Hmm...you're using SAI, right? I'm not pro enough to give reliable tips, but I'll try my best :XD:

1. Find your suitable tablet area.
I only used around 3/4 of mine because I find it easier that way. If you think your strokes feels too slow in full area, try reducing it.

2. Use stabilizer.
Use this in SAI. I usually use 15, and too lazy to change it, hahaha...

3. Don't be afraid of using many layers.
While your file size can get quite large, using many layers for different parts can save you in a lot of ways. This is useful when you often make mistakes like me. ^^;

4. Lastly, don't rush.
I find myself hitting Ctrl+Z almost as often as I make strokes, lol. Be patient and don't hesitate to undo if you aren't satisfied.

Wow, i managed to write something meaningful. :iconfinallyplz:
Hahaha, sorry for the long post and hope that helps. ;)
