Paint Tool SAI - Vector Line Width/Weight Tutorial by Shattered-Earth Paint Tool SAI - Vector Line Width/Weight Tutorial by Shattered-Earth

Easy Vector Line Width/Weight for Paint Tool Sai


Share on tumblr: [link] (:

So a day or two ago I uploaded a tutorial on how to do line widths easily in illustrator, a few deviants commented on the fact that you could do it on paint tool sai as well! I did not know this, and there wasn't a tutorial about it on deviantart already so I thought i'd just put one together for easy reference.

It is a bit more limited than illustrator but I mean that's to be expected as one is $60 and one is.. $600+ LOL~

If you have any additional tips to add to the comments please say so, i tried to find a way to "move" the width or to make width "points" that were not attached to the actual line's shape points but i couldn't, i don't think you can :(



Illustrator's CS5's version:

Is there a way to stop the curve tool after I make a line with it? I'm clueless about it.
Reply
:iconshattered-earth:
Shattered-Earth Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2013   Digital Artist
umm if i am interpretting you correctly, the easiest way i know is to just merge it with a layer under it, like ctrl+e? you can't turn it back into a vector though so don't do it unless you are really sure!

I learned from a tutorial by :iconninjakato: that I could use the enter key to end the curve and line tools.

Never mind, it turns out I could use the enter key. What was I thinking? (I'm just learning.)

How did I never see that button? Granted I just learned of the stabilizer feature 2 months ago >.> Also how did you move the layers window to the right?

:iconshattered-earth:
Shattered-Earth Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2013   Digital Artist
Um under the menu "window" there's an option near the bottom to move either thing to the left or right :)
