Paint Tool SAI: Line Tutorial by TheRebelPhoenix Paint Tool SAI: Line Tutorial by TheRebelPhoenix
After learning SAI and seeing the greatness of it. I just had to share it with all my friends. And so I made a tutorial to show them even more of the greatness.
And to also show those like me with bad hand-eye co-oridination thus bad line-art the greatness of it!
It's just THAT GREAT!

So Sai Line-Art Tutorial.

Edit: OKAY PEOPLE STOP FAVING THIS SERIOUSLY! Do you know how old this is? How badly it was written? How badly it was drawn? How bored I was for making it and how much better other tutorials out there are? I mean come on... STOP FAVING THIS!

To select multiple points:
click the Edit tool on the Pen layer, and choose the Select mode (first one)
then click and drag to select an area
all the points in this area will be selected
click the pressure tool
now apply pressure to one of the points
but look! all of the points had their pressure changed!

I've been using SAI for maybe 5-6 months now and I never really focused on the edit tool so thanks for explaining it to us!  I didn't know you could connect lines!! XD

The verison of SAI I have will not give me lines with pointed ends... any idea on how to fix that?…

are you making sure to use the vector tools?
they are only accessible in Linework layers
in your box that you can choose new layers,
instead of choosing the option with the paper icon,
pick the one that has a pen over it. then all of your tools
will be different (those are your vectoring tools)
they are very different from your regular drawing tools,
but with some experimenting they can be extremely useful!
