Tutorial on how I make digital watercolors in Sai. The old version was a bit outdated so I made a new one!
It's also on tumblr: bluekomadori.tumblr.com/post/9…

And here you can find a few useful links:
  1. You can download the Sai file of this picture here: link 
  2. Video process of painting another picture: link
  3. The old watercolor tutorial: link
  4. Sai brushes (none of them is made by me) link + file you need to open them in Sai: link
  5. Awesome watercolor brushes made by Kyle T Webster: link

Here’s the finished painting: link

EDIT: OMG my second DD!!! :o (Eek)  I feel so honored... ;_; I can't find words to express how grateful I am to :iconotkurzacz: and :iconnazegoreng: for suggesting it and :iconpiratelotus-stock: for featuring!! *Free Icon/Emote* Toothless (Love it!)  Thank you very very much!!!

That's weird, I can't open the 2nd file in #4 because it says it violates the T&C of Google Drive. Help :(

I agree with :iconotkurzacz: and :iconnazegoreng: when saying this is the best tutorial I've seen for creating a watercolor effect on SAI. I'm still not use to SAI so I've never experimented with the watercolor aspect, this explains and shows a great deal of what to expect and experiment with when working this method. I use watercolors to a certain extent but I might prefer this over the real thing to be honest.

Great tutorial you have here :iconbluekomadori:!
