Is anyone out there having some oekaki trouble... or is just a new member and wants
to get started?
Here are some tips:
♥ Use LAYERS! The little thing at the very bottom of the page that's in small
letters (for Shi-Painter)... Shi-Painter Pro just has the thing that says "Layers".
♥ It is better to use a pencil or pen. Make sure it is on either "freehand" or
"curve". It is generally NOT a good idea to use "Lines".
♥ For great shading and various colors, use "Burn" and "Dodge".
♥ If you want to know how come some oekakis have a designed background, that's
because it was drawn using "Shi-Painter Pro".
♥ If you start drawing a picture and then you realize that your canvas size is
either too big or too small, DO NOT exit the page. Instead, open up another Kupika...
log back in to your page... and then draw click to draw another oekaki. Then you can
put in a different canvas size. Then it will ask you if you want to reset your
picture. You can click "Yes"... and then exit your other page if you want to.
♥ But most IMPORTANT of all.... just remember to HAVE FUN, and create your own
unique style if you like!
I hope this helps... it took me a while before I got used to oekakis.
If you need more help, go visit Sasshineko's (sp???) tutorials!...
And for additional help, find some great pictures and click on the "how to draw".
All of my pictures have that - I recommend that you view CatGirl and Heartbroken
I am also thinking of hosting my first oekaki contest soon! Tell me what you think!
