I'm sorry but could you give me the link to download paint tool sai? I've searched a lot but there are just too many links and I don't know which is the good one. :(

Any link is pretty much good, just make sure that no alerts, offers, or anything similar pop-up. If anything pops up that seems suspicious, it's probably a scam. I'd go to a website that has good ratings.

Helpful, though im lost a bit at the actual drawing. It is hard to explain, but how does everyone already have a template. Im still searching for a way to successfully draw something with a mouse without tracing.

You should learn figure drawings then, there's tutorials for it and you can use it without a tablet.

I have another way to do this for people who don't like the curve tool, like I do.
What I do is draw a small line with the pen tool, and drag it out by pressing CTRL and clicking and dragging the yellow diamond.
Then, I use CTRL again to curve the line.
Hope this is helpful.

oh wow, I was looking for an easier way to make line art and I found out about the "curve tool" today in your tutorial \(^0^
yes, indeed it's easier than marking then editing the CP points :)

The "curve" tool, or Paint Tool SAI itself???

I have free mac download link if you'd like, and there's a method for windows users where you can get painting for free using win zip.

But the curve tool is on the "lifework" layer option, and so is "pressure."


Hope this helps, even if your comment was a bit outdated XD
