Finally done! Actually already on Tuesday but who cares XD
Please note that I taught everything myself  and this may be not the right way or the correct way to be said, but this is how it works for me. ^-^
I know there's tons of text, but please read it before asking, I tried to explain as much as I could but the last thing is up to you!
I also hope this will help you, feel free to ask if your question is not explained in the Tutorial! :iconyuiswayplz:

Thank you so much for this helpful tutorial. I use Corel Painter instead of Sai, but I think all those software tend to be quite similar anyways. The process is what counts I think, and since I'm still just starting out with practicing coloring my art, your process is very helpful. Thank you so much for taking the time. Your work is beautiful ^///^

it's a petty there is no other way to the ink pen tool without having to download other programs onto your computer :iconyuicraiplz:

I think your able to duplicate one of your other tools and edit its properties to the same as the ink tool.
