Wow! I just discovered (by accident) the ‘linework’ layer in Easy paint tool sai… What an AMAZING design tool. Way better than illustrator for creating a painted ink line effect, and completley controllable – you can draw a freehand line with tapering ends based on the pressure you use with your pen with the BRILLIANT quality and presicion i’ve come to expect of this program- but here’s the cool thing – it draws that with a vector path, and each point can be adjusted, moved with very smooth curves AND you can change the ‘pressure’ that was used at each point, affecting the line thickness.
Holy crap, dude! Best inking thing ever!
I’m so glad i bought this program. They DESERVE my money.
For those of you not in the know (and who speak Ingerish.)
It’s a paint program that I previously thought was limited to raster painting – granted, very crisp and precise lines out of the brushes that’re a joy to draw with! Excellent pressure sensitivity. I thought that odd since there’s a cross pollenation between SAI and Photoshop, you can switch and change between both anytime with the same project.
There’s the trial version that lasts 30 days, and is a reeeal pain in the ass to keep uninstalling and reinstalling after registry cleaning and completely removing any files that Sai has previously touched so you can use it for another 30 days…
It costs 80au. So like, 5250 japanese yen. So like… whatever in yer local currency. Since i was doing every drawing in SAI, i thought i should probably buy it, since i wasn’t inclined to draw without it.
It certainly works for me.
