This is very amazing! I love how you color!!!!
By any chance, do you know how to blur objects in painttool sai to give it more depth?
I have been using my mouse to mess with sai, and I simply have no clue how to do it. :(
Do you know any tutorials by chance?

wait I'm a little confused - what's the point of the gaussian blur? awesome tutorial btw, is there one for your chibis? :3

Thanks,
Hardcore Niaro Fan xD
niaro's avatar
to give a slight glow effect and a softer edge on the lineart u v u it's subtle but compare the overlay with and without the blur and you'd see what I mean

thank you!! and no i don't believe so but I color them the same when I shade them! i don't have a uniform style on my chibis so i feel it'd be hard to do a tut on them ;_; thanks tho
NoizRnel's avatar
Got it, I was just wondering about your chibis, since they're adorable!! QwQ

And thanks for replying really fast C: this tutorial helps a lot xD

I...I don't understand how to do the effect thingy D: What peach color? What do you mean "copy it. paste it. Deform it."? D:>
I got how to do the ellipse and everything else I don't understand what you were saying there...
niaro's avatar
I don't know how to explain better than I did but umm the peach color is the pink I used for the circle and copy/paste and deform are all normal terms. I suppose try to read again because I have difficulties seeing where you're having difficulties;

Wahh that was so helpful! I'm pretty new to SAI and didn't know you could do so much in the program! It was very easy to understand and I look forward to experimenting with your tips in the future! Great job!:highfive:

I colored this using this tutorial. [link] I think I found a new chibi coloring style this one is so easy to do and lovely in a simplistic way.
niaro's avatar
It looks really good *v*! Wow I'm so glad it's easy for you! always think my tutorials won't help people since it's a lot of personal taste etc U v U
rasanime's avatar
Awesome! But--
Why did you do the overlay and blur thing is the end?
niaro's avatar
makes the colors come out a little bit more. it's a bit subtle (:
