SAI/Manga Studio 5 Layer Modes
There are two layer modes in Paint Tool Sai that really come in handy with cartoon coloring: Shade mode for shadows and Luminosity mode for highlights. I've seen them in action on a few YouTube videos and was impressed with how easy it was to add shadows and highlights on a project.
The kicker is that I use a Mac Pro and would have to run SAI within a virtual machine if I want to use it. However, I shouldn't have to since I have Manga Studio 5. The problem is that there isn't a great deal of information about Manga Studio 5 in relation to Photoshop or SAI or any other paint/drawing program. The information I did locate wasn't very helpful either.
So, I played around with Manga Studio 5 this morning to see if I could locate a rough equivalent to the Shade and Luminosity layer modes that are found in SAI. I think I figured it out.
Shade Mode: The equivalent layer mode I could find in Manga Studio 5 for Shade was Color Burn. I reduced the opacity of the layer to around 60% and used

Arielle
Artist | Film & Animation
United States
I'm an alumni animation student at the School of Visual Arts in NYC. Although I would say that my main style is anime/manga, I am able to replicate any style when presented with a reference.

In addition to animation, I am very skilled at storyboarding, comics, illustration, character design, and special fx makeup. I am currently doing commissions as freelance work.

Inktober 2017 Day 15: Mysterious
I decided to redraw something I storyboarded in 2015 since I know more than I did then. This is the demoness, Kani, surfacing after catching her prey. Original storyboard can be seen on my website (link in bio).
