PaintTool SAI GLOW Tutorial by aBane PaintTool SAI GLOW Tutorial by aBane
I've had a few people ask me to do a tutorial.

In order to do glows myself I turned to yaoi-dealer [link] because I admire her artwork so much. But basically, credit to her for helping me along in my art and to be able to do art and glowing myself.

Enjoy this simple and easy to use tutorial on SAI Luminosity effects!

It doesn't seem to look right to me, what setting do you have the air brush on?

Sorry for snooping, but is the layer s mode set to Luminosity? If so, does the picture have a dark background?

Yes and no. Sometimes it does have a dark background sometimes it doesn't. But it doesn't look right to me for sone reason, it's only looked right once

You're probably using a light color, then. You should have some darker layers underneath it when you use luminosity. Luminosity is generally used to highlight another color. c:

Sorry to butt in, I just noticed your comment and wanted to help.

what options do you use to have the line sharp at the end?
Reply
:iconerik-tan:
Erik-Tan Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2014  Student General Artist
You mean on their line work? It probably has a lot to do with their tablet pressure settings. It helps if you just play around with the settings in Sai to find out what works for you, but this may help: www.deviantart.com/art/Paint-T…

My sai didn't have a 'luminosity' option... It has addition which I hear is the same, but when I use it, it just barely glows :( heelp

you can try this: 
create a new layer, set it to addition, use brush with low density (6~8) and draw

Actually turns out I didn't even have 'addition' on. When I turn it on, nothing appears when I try to draw....

You need something underneath to put the glow on first.

So, I tried this out and it works great, but my only problem is I can't figure out for the life of me, how to compress it without destroying the luminosity effect xD Any input would be greatly appreciated :hug:

:iconyami-angel-and-devil:
Can somebody please help me, I can't find luminosity in paint tool sai, when i click blend mode there is: normal, multiply, screen, addition, overlay and binary - but no luminosity :'(

Hello, I think I can help you. In some versions of SAI addition is the same thing as luminosity. :)

Look in "Mode", not "Effect"
