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

ArtsMermaid's Profile Picture
ArtsMermaid
Arielle
Artist | Film & Animation
United States
I'm a fourth/thesis year 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.

Hey guys, 

This is going to sound a little rant-y, but I feel like I need to vent somewhere.

I feel restricted. I love my parents and I know they support me being an artist, but they don't know how to nurture it. I just graduated SVA, and I want to make my own stuff for a bit to expand my brand. But nope, parents think the best way to handle this is to throw me into work right away. I tell I want to do my own thing, but nope. Get a job make money. I want to tell them I want to work on my own stuff and figure out how I want to approach freelancing. They say they want to understand how this kind of work goes, but when ever I tell them, they say, "thats not how things are done." 

After I finish my sister's commission, I don't care what my parents think. I'm taking time to work on my own things, without grades. This way, I can practice new techniques, expand my range, hopefully grow a fan base, build a portfolio/reel to show potential clients/employers. I just wish they knew that I know what I'm doing.

Sorry for the mini vent/rant. If you still haven't seen my thesis film, please check it out and support it x

Until next time.

Love and :huggle:

Medudesa
This is my first full face prosthetic. Behold Medudesa; a male Medusa. 

I wanted to make him sort of punk so I could incorporate the snake hair without it coming off as feminine. 

Materials used: tape, foam latex, model magic, acrylic paint

Special thanks to my friend, Dane for being the model
PC: My teacher, Paul
