WIP – Korra


Just got Paint Tool SAI and I thought I would give it a whirl. So far I have to say that I am impressed with how easy it is to use and how quickly you can get stuff done compared to other software. I am enjoying the simplicity and the ease of use.

Like I mentioned I am giving PTS a whirl, and started a portrait of Korra. From initial sketch drawing to the layout of base colours, total time is around 3 hours. I gotta say for what I got done, that is pretty quick….I’m usually much slower to progress.

Anyway, here is my work-in-progress so far. Let’s hope I manage to finish it! :)

I finally finished this piece, YAY, I redid it like 20 times…. But it was worth it, I’m happy with the results.

Colour Testing/Practice


I have recently become reacquainted with traditional mediums, specially (Shinhan Art has recently added to their marker collection) Touch Twin Brush Markers. I hear they are a competitive alternative to Copic Markers.

As a result, I have purchased/received several Touch Twin Brush Markers. And I have been in love ever since! :) Below are some of my colouring practice using the markers as well as Sakura Gelly Pens in White and Stardust Clear Star.

*Let me know if you wish to know which markers I used specifically for each image.
