For some reason, when I try to use luminosity, the color is way too strong and bright, where as yours blends better. Is something wrong with my brush settings, or is it perhaps I'm pressing down too hard on my tablet?
Also, I used a combination of SAI and photoshop for this. Because I found out today that they were cross compatible and I was absolutely delighted because I feared I would alienate myself from SAI just not being able to use the line tool (I can't ink with a tablet, I'm terrible at it ._.)
Warning: I'm still getting used to it, and I use a different program so it took me a while to figure out. And don't pay attention to the body, I'm not proud of it at all ;-; Although it's not as good as you, am I getting there?
Guess I'm using wrong version or something, don't have this one either... Damn, I really wanted to try your technique "by the book" and now have to improvise again to save the drawing. Thanks anyway Amanda. I suppose there is a place only for one pony drawing like you)
Nope, I was looking in the right place. I had wrong version indeed. A friend of mine gave me her version(yay for piracy) and brushes were found) Btw, finished it 2 days before [link]. Still looks kinda crappy, but at least it was fun to try which is most important^_^
