Learn how to make simple yet stylish and colorful game icons, using basic tools in Paint Tool SAI. We’ll start with a blank page and go through the full process of making an icon for a casual game. Let’s get started! 1. Make a Magic Potion Based on a Triangle Shape Step 1 Make a New Canvas ( Control-N ) choosing the desired size. I always start with a bigger size of canvas in the beginning, because it will give you an ability to make more detailed artwork. Also since we’re working with raster graphics, we don’t want to lose the quality of our future icons—on the contrary, we use a bigger size now so that when we scale our icons, they will look even better. Step 2 Create a New Layer from the
What You’ll Be Creating Fallout 4 is here! We’ve decided to celebrate it by giving you a chance to draw your own Vault Boy. Step by step, you’ll learn how to build a complex silhouette out of ovals and curves. Maybe you’ll even learn how to draw your own Fallout character in this style? Let’s see! 1. Draw the Body Before we start, choose one of two ways of drawing (if you draw digitally, just skip this): Draw all the lines very subtly, and then finish them strongly when the drawing is done. Draw the lines as you want, then use the method from the last section of my tutorial How to Draw a Baby Fox . Step 1 Draw a circle. It doesn’t need to be perfect or very clean. Step 2 Take a measure from the radius of the circle and draw a line three times as long. Step 3 Draw a line at the bottom. The part on the right should be longer than the radius. Step 4 Let’s build the guide lines for the legs. First, draw a curve between the middle of the circle and the left end of the floor line. Step 5 Now draw a curve between the bottom of the circle and the left end of the floor line. Step 6 Find the half point of the middle radius-line. Draw a curve coming though it. Step 7 Use the same point to draw another curve. Step 8 “Close” the shape with the two last curves. Step 9 Draw the head circle, slightly smaller than the chest circle and more on the right.

What You’ll Be Creating Realism is tricky, but if you can master it you’ll bring your art to a whole new level. In this tutorial, I’ll be showing you how to paint four different hairstyles varying in texture and curl patterns. Learn the step-by-step process to achieving realism by being strategic with Layer Blend Modes. 1.

What You’ll Be Creating Sometimes it’s not zombies and vampires that scare us, but characters from childhood stories. Even though objectively they’re not that scary, there’s something in them that brings us chills even in our adult lives. The Winged Monkeys from “The Wizard of Oz” are certainly that type of character. Let’s learn how to draw one! 1. Prepare for Drawing This is the most overlooked part of drawing projects.
