Tutorial Paint Tool Sai Different Layer Options

Someone asked me on tumblr to explain and show the difference of each layer option in PTS,
I tried my best to explain it, hope it'll be usefull for some of you.
If you want me to explain anything feel free to tweet/not/tumblr me!! I gonna try to reply as fast as possible, but since I gonna graduate soon and have my final exams comming up it may take a bit, I'm sorry ;-;/

Short explaination if it may not appear clear.

Basically we have the drawing we want to use the effects one, above we draw the "shadows"
I used a kind of grey idk. Placing it above our actual drawing gives us the option to see how different
those effects work. It's the same base drawing and layer above, but see how the effects change the look?
I like muliply & binary the best here haha.

if you have any questions feel free to leave them here! ^-^/     Twitter:    YT:…

If you use overlay on pale or light colored layers how do you get it visible?

Do you know if/how the effects change depending on the color of the layer? like if you used red for the covering layer and not grey?
