SAI : Starry Sky Tutorial by uchuubranko SAI : Starry Sky Tutorial by uchuubranko
I'm so sorry for my Engurishuuu really omg :iconomgcryplz:
I'm definitely not good at explaining things :iconcryforeverplz: but still I hope it helps somehow....:iconoelplz:
- Feel free to ask questions! :happybounce: I'll do my best in answering what I know.
- It's not a tutorial suited for beginners with SAI, but if you still want to try, I suggest to search first a tutorial that explains the SAI TOOLS well such as :
- I'm just showing the way I draw stars in SAI, there sure are more ways, and you're not obligated to follow it strictly! *U*
- I'd appreciate linking back something you drew using this tutorial, but it's not obligatory. :thanks::heart:

I'm sorry for that ugly star appearing there and there, I had to draw it. I HAD TO. :iconpapmingplz:

thanks so much for looking! :hug::love:



my starry skies :dummy:

how do you add the shine thing?

if you're referring to the pink shine, it's done with another addition/luminosity layer and with airbush, using a red colour.

otherwise all the other stars are just pen tool on luminosity layer at 100%. :D
maybe it's the contrast that makes them look like they're shining? or the other stars that are blue-ish in the background, maybe the white ones are outshining the others and that looks shiny? :dummy: stars are a misteryyyy.

Incredible, I though that to make some stars on the sky I needed some kind of brush to splash the stars there in a certain amount instead of one by one

Wow this really helps. Thank you so much for this. To be in fact, I just downloaded Paint Tool SAI and didn't even know what was I supposed to do here. This tutorial really gave me the basics of this program. 

I just have one question. 

I am having trouble on changing the pen size since mine only goes up to 30. Can you tell me how to change the pen size and create new types of brushes at the same time? :| (Blank Stare)

I'm trying my hardest to figure out what you mean by "pen" tool... all I have on normal layers is pencil, and that doesn't form that glowing halo, and neither does the pen on the lining layer. I don't know if you're using some other tool which isn't listed there like the airbrush to place glows over the spots, but whatever you're doing, my SAI doesn't have access to it.

glowing halo? :? maybe you're referring to the glowing stars I drew directly on the tutorial BG (blue) and not the SAI canvas (dark blue) ?
the shining stars are drawn directly on the tut sheet with PS > layer style(see below), just to show what kind if shape it's good for them to be :) otherwise for my SAI stars, I always use the Pen tool at full opacity. For the glow (on SAI canvas) I use airbrush tool like explained in tut.

Layer > Layer Style > Drop Shadow or Outer Glow.

I have no idea how to change the layer style. I feel like I don't have the full version of Sai with all the differences in textures and tools I've been noticing lately.

I meant, that the stars with halo (the ones drawn on the tutorial itself, on the light blue part) are drawn with PS (photoshop CS4) and Photoshop has Layer > Layer Style > Drop Shadow or Outer Glow. :P

not at all :)

on your Text layer, go to Layer > Layer Style > Drop Shadow or Outer Glow.

i'd like to ask, how does starlight affect the lighting of the rest of the picture? if there were only stars at light sources, what would the colors look like? thanks for any feedback ; w ;//

:iconuchuubranko:
uchuubranko Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2015  Student General Artist
very very dim lights xD The startlight (usually) has merely the role of defining a dark (human or anything) shape on the night sky :aww: and that's thanks to the dotted pattern of millions of stars :XD:

static.squarespace.com/static/…

but art is free of any normal boundaries :eager: you could try to make a high contrast / dark-shadows with very dim lights on humans and that would be not too far from reality :la:
