Paint Tool SAI Tutorial 2 by driflooning Paint Tool SAI Tutorial 2 by driflooning
Part 1: Inking

Some notes:
Normally, I draw the background first. But I left that out for this tutorial.

Some concepts are explained better in my previous, outdated tutorial found here: [link]

The purpose of locking the layer opacity is so that when you start shading on that layer, you don't bleed out of the lines.

To make the shiny highlights on the violin, I created a new layer and drew with a light yellow color at a low opacity.

I added the violin's strings AFTER coloring everything.

There have been a lot of changes to the drawing throughout the tutorial, I just don't mention them. XD;

Anyway...
Enjoy!

Other than a possible gap in your line art or being on the wrong layer, it could be your settings. Mine are:

Detection Mode: Transparency (Fuzzy) 
Transp Diff: +47
Target: Working Layer
Anti-aliasing checked

Hope you get it figured out!

I'll try to change my settings to yours.
I did figure it out yay. What I did wrong was that I used the wand tool on the color layers instead of the lineart layers XD

Haha, that happens. XD You can always mess with the settings to see what each thing means and pick what's best for you. :)

Thank  you for the advice!
Next time I should really calm down about the layers. I set up 9 or 10 layers and i go back and forth so much, i forget which layer i'm on
