Rotatable 3D models for artists

Includes torso, head, foot, and various hand poses - select from menu on the right!


i’m really indecisive about my brush settings so i’m almost constantly changing them lmao, but uh!
here are some of my current settings


finally got around to posting my brush settings!! sorry for the wait everyone omg but these brushes are the only ones i use mostly uvu


oh right bonehatter asked for my sai line settings in the stream here u go

i change it up a lot though so this is just my current setting

shinyhoundooms: “Hey! Your art is just amazing and it inspires me so much, but what stands out to me the most is the hair. Do you have any tips for painting it?”


ah thanks! i always liked the way i did hair too tbh heh;; i was asked to make a tutorial eariler this year but i never found the time to do it but i guess ill do it here OTL

1) sketch! 


as you may know early in the morning, hair is very flimsy and uncooperative! even straight hair isnt going to be perfectly straight. there will be loose ends and parts that stick out. hair is not one block!


2) painting! for the way i paint you might want to see my colouring walkthrough coz i wont explain in detail about it.


fringes and hair that is against the face would tend to be more transparent/lighter than the thickness of the hair in over places of the scalp.

3) shade!image

colours are all on the same layer to allow for colours to blend over smoothly. for certain parts of the hair such as a the fringe/block areas i liked to use this brush


it gives a nice streaky texture. dont use too much/only this brush though! then it looks tacky :T. you want different widths in colour/lines.

4) overlay colour to brighten and darken! refer to the other tutorial!


5) merge and paint!



i added the glow coz it would have related to the colour of her eyes

the ends of the hair are more streaky and loose while the roots can bee more blocky and less detailed

theres a bit of blue glow that appears on my fringe  from her eyes which i sometimes like to add. this is obviously a stylistic choice coz aint no eyes that glowy enough for that to happen LOL

streaky, flimsy, loose hair makes things look more realistic. you dont want things that are ugly like this

…which happens to be my first attempt at painting LOL

you dont always have to do a lot of hair details though. esp if say… the face isnt the main subject in the painting. short hair can tend to bypass all that flimsiness i suppose??? @@

flimsy long hairrrr. when theres more hair its less easy to sidestep it looking weird if its one big chuck e__e

in the end everything still depends on your own personal style though!! if your style gives things a lot of detail, everything tends to have to follow through or itll look awkward.

6) finISH HIM IT

woot! i hope that was vaguely helpful!!!


this is pretty much just a redo of my other tutorial cause i hated how that one turned out, but someone asked for tips so I thought I’d do it before college legit starts on monday omg

just some ideas to play around with!!!

It’s hard coming up with just general tips for drawing, but if you have anything more specific you have troubles with just ask this weekend and I’ll do tutorials cause im bored anyway lmaooo


Here’s a quick look at what my process looks like nowadays! I really only use the default pen settings in sai and the air brush for most of my coloring. Once everything’s merged, I use this brush:

to fix up some shapes which I definitely see better once all the colors are laid out. As for color palettes/theory, that’s still something I’m figuring out for myself, but don’t be afraid to rely on photos/pre-existing color palettes to test the waters!


I always get questions about my brush settings, so I thought I’d share some brushes I’ve fiddled around with myself and use religiously, mostly for sketching and can be great for inking. Have some characters I don’t draw enough of at all.

Here are the textures for these. Ink/Brush pen and Chalk.
