Ok so I tested lots of stuff n I guess its bc sai only saves in 8 bits or watever n thats y banding happens (I think) bc it completely fixes banding in 16 bit photoshop stuff but not when u convert an 8 bit sai psd 2 16 bit...u can blur it tho once its in ps n 16 bit but Ehhhhhh. That kinda fixes it but I dont want all my shading blurred lol...so Idk its not THAT noticable Im just gonna finish this pic n worry about fixing it up once its done

Ok so Im on my laptop using my intuos n its doing the same thing in sai (16bit) I tried in 300..uhh Idk the resolution thing n also 600 resolution thing n it still does it

I am starting 2 wonder if this is just a normal thing that Im being annoying about bc I dont like how it looks bc I also looked at this pic  A T :||  H o k i M a r u by Aearia  and it seems 2 have some banding going on....so maybe this is just how things r????? Or both my screens have crappy graphics cards or whatever???

I'll try to decipher this....
You mean these 'lines' in the supposed gradient shading m that makes it less smooth gradient, isn't it? Well, I don't colour in SAI anymore, but... back when I still do, I think I rarely had this problem. Smoothing it with 'blend' brush was what I do.
I recall this is an artifact that may happen in imaging (although then again, this is art).

The weird thing is that it happens even in blending?? At least I think so, I was using a watercolor brush another time and even as I was blendig the colors it was happening....

I was wonderng if this is just a thing that happens in sai bc it did seem to look better in the photoshop examples I showed when I was using 32bit or whatever but the problem is I rly hate using photoshop 4 anyhing other than like finishing up pics n stuff...in a few minutes Im gonna just try a bunch of differsnt things 2 see if anything works bc ughhh x___x
