Paint Tool Sai Speech Bubbles TutorialFirst you need a new line art layer and to use the vector tools provided. Use the curve tool and edit tool to create your speech bubble shapes.Paint Tool Sai Speech Bubbles Tutorial2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Below in red is where to find the line art layer. Click it to create a new line art or Vector Layer.
On the new line art layer, click four points in a rought squared egg shape like below in the large red square. Use the curve tool to make this shape. The curve tool is marked in a little red box to the left of the image below.
Now select the edit tool. Then from the middle of each point, click and hold then drag outwards to create a new point and deform your shape into a rough circle. You may need to change between your edit options to edit the shape. Translate should be fine to do most of the shaping.
Then you can use the curve tool to ad the speech bubble tail. That's all there is to making speech bubbles in sai. Of course you can draw

There's no anime that attracts me right now. I read mangas more than watching anime right now. Not that I have anything to complain about it since I only have free time on weekends nowadays.
And I asked some of you which female anime character that I should draw , and many suggest that I should draw Haruhi so I'll draw her. Thanks for the ideas and also sorry for not replying to the comments.

End Date: 31st October
Prize Donations Wanted!
Legends-Of-Skyrim is hosting its first contest to celebrate the opening of the group!
The aim of the contest is to write a piece of literature from the point of view of an evil character related to one of Skyrims main quest-lines. A few examples of acceptable characters are: Mercer Frey, Ancano, Alduin, General Tullius/ Ulfric Stormcloak etc.
The evil character can be portrayed in any way you like. Will your piece offer redemption to the character, or were they intending to be evil? Were they working for the greater good but wrongly accused, or maybe they genuinely believed that their evil actions benefited everyone? Your entry can also throw the evil NPC into any situation you want, as long as it is lore friendly, and it can include other NPC's that the evil character would have encountered.
To enter, simply tell us you want to join in this journals comments and fol
