"Mark my words! This drill will open a hole in the universe! And that hole will be a path for those behind us! The dreams of those who’ve fallen! The hopes of those who’ll follow! Those two sets of dreams weave together into a double helix! Drilling a path towards tomorrow! And that’s Tengen Toppa! That’s Gurren Lagann!! My drill is the drill…that creates the heavens!!!"

Some notes on how blending works in Sai.I’ve been getting my brushes, blotmaps, and textures from ptsbrushes & Deviantart.

If you can’t find a certain texture that’s listed here, just google “Sai + THAT TEXTURE” and it’ll show you a link to any number of ppl on DA who provide those textures for download including instructions!

Some other notes in messing around with various brushes & settings:

The “fringe” layer effect in Sai is akin to Photoshop’s “stroke” layer mode option. It essentially adds an outline to anything on that layer. Combined with watercolor texture and watercolor brushes/blending brushes, that’s how you get that authentic look since real life watercolors push the pigments to the edges of your brush strokes due to water tension. This creates the darker outlined fringe that is so trademark to the authentic watercolor look.

By blending with a different foreground color, it is similar to having some pigment left over on your brush when you try to blend the colors on the paper with water. In sai, the harder you press, the more the foreground color inserts itself into your blending (when using the pictured brush & settings). The softer you press, the more diluted the blending is, and thus the softer it looks. Give it a shot! Post questions in my ask.

So my historical costuming resources list from 2011 was less than a page long- I’m not saying that I’ve learned a lot in the past three years, but this list is now sitting pretty at a solid nine pages. Whew. And people wonder why I want to redo this damn series.



I’m not sure why I drew this but I don’t really regret it.
