my painting - ''EVE'' by dwightyoakamfan my painting - ''EVE'' by dwightyoakamfan
this took me about 2 days in paint tool sai, with some editing in photoshop cs6 to tweak it.

i painted the background as well. the only effect i added was a faint bokeh overlay near the trees and the flowers which were painted to create a sort of lens-flare effect.

This had around 70 layers in paint tool sai!!!

I didn't use a reference photo and just did it from imagination and a lot of trial and error, lol. It's not based on anyone or anything.

This drawing holds a special place for me, so I hope you enjoy it too.

Large prints available! just message me. and check me out on facebook, too:

This piece is really, truly breathtaking. It has such a serene, almost ethereal essence to it, and I can't get enough!

Hope this isn't a bother to you, but do you mind if I ask which brush/es you used? I use SAI as well, but all of the brushes feel too watery to me to make anything look solid.

Thank you so much for the wonderful comment!! I actually use a brush Pack i downloaded, i usually use a few different brushes, at least 3!

I understand what you mean about it being watery. I used a spiral special technique that i hist learned recently that's a little hard to explain!

I did the sketch and painted the background and then i adjusted the colors and did a lens blur effect in photosjop and then put it back info sai, then to keep her edges sharp/hard i put her on a separate layer on top of the bg and used a brush that was flat with a hard edge like pen or ink. Then i put her layer into a layer folder and added another layer ontop of that one, and turned "clipping" on. That means anything i draw on that layer will only be drawn within the layer i draw beneath abs not the background. This is when i used the acrylic brush to give it the painted effect.

I hope that helps some i know is a bit confusing. I've been using sai for about 7 years now and im still learning new things every time!

Look into some major sai brush packs modifications. They help a lot!
