1. Class Introduction: Hi there. My name is Oliver, and I am the creator of Infinite Pop Comics. I mainly post on Instagram and Web Toon, So just type invented pop comics and you'll find me there. Here are a few examples of the pieces of common a gold I am responsible for. You can pause the video and read them if you like. I've been making Web comics using pain to outside for almost three years now, so I decided to make this closure class to pass my knowledge on to you So you can get starting on making Web comics whilst avoiding beginning wrist aches so you can go from this ugly looking drawing to this better looking throwing. This is the first part of what will hopefully become a three part video series on how to start making quote unquote funny with comics like the ones I showed you before In this first part, I'll talk about how to use paint, so sigh in the context of making a comic. So if you're interested in learning how to properly use painful side to make Web comics, stick around for this course, and if you want under more about the coming making process. Follow me as a teacher and stay tuned for future courses in which I'll talk about Leinart coloring ideas and posting. All right, so without further ado, let's start with the class. 2. Introducing the Class Project: I'd like to take a moment to quickly introduce this lessons Class Project A class project. This is something you would be able to do after finishing the lesson. If I do my job right by the end of this lesson, you should be able to open a new canvas, make a color drawing on, exported as an image. It may seem like pretty material stuff, and it is. You can probably do all of that easily without my hump, however, is not just about doing it. It's about doing it right. And that is precisely what I'm aiming to teach you. So please don't leave, please. 3. Drawing Tablets: All right, so this is what painful side looks like. But right now, I'm gonna be using it to make a short slide show presentation on what tools you should use to draw your comics. I would recommend using a drawing tablet, which might seem obvious, but I know some people who use the mouse, and that's fine. But I think it's up. It will make your life easier. I started making comics with a welcome into a straw, which cost me around $100. However, if you go on Amazon, you confined tablets for around 27 or 35 bucks, which is quite the bargain. But anyway, I suggest that you go on YouTube and type best cheap drawing tablet or something like that and find out what's best for your situation. I will say that I don't recommend that you buy a very expensive tablet because you can go very far with a simple drawing tablet. Just remember that your skills are more important than your tools, So, yeah, after the short advice section, let's actually start using pain to us. I 4. Optimizing Your SAI Layout: great. So let's start with sitting up the layout for Cy. Well, first, a quick disclaimer. Uh, I'll be using painful Sight one during this lesson, but I know there is a newer version of Painful side witches, Angels I to and I using videos off painful side to. In fact, here is a screenshot of what it looks like, and you'll see that it's not that different from painful someone. The only difference is that painters I to is a bit more complete and more arty, but I'm sure you'll be able to get through this lesson using either one of them. So don't worry about that. There are four main areas inside that I use for making Web comics. The first would be the file tap where you can open a new canvas, conserve your progress as you go. Please do remember to kick safe every now and then because of the computer crashes or the program fails, you might lose all of your progress. And let me tell you, that is not fun at all. Also, once you finish the drawing, you can export it as a J pick or a PNG file. Here, J picks and P and G's air. Just what we call images. When you open a new campus, it will ask you what size and resolution you want, but I'll talk more about that in the next short video. The second is the layer area. Here. You can create new layers, change the rapacity and stuff like that. Layering is very, very important. When I started out, I completely ignore the layers, and I had a really hard time drawing anything with quality. I'll make a separate video just for the layers because, as I said, I think it's quite important this is the color wheel, as you would expect. Here is where you select which colors to use. So you basically go around the wheel and choose the colors and Hughes you most prefer like so you can also play with these borders right here and let you be more precise with what colors were choosing. But I mostly only used a color wheel on this watches. I'll talk more about customizing your side layout when I start talking about the window tab , and finally, this is a drunken section. As you can see, that are a bunch of tools, but I only use the pen, the eraser on the bucket and maybe some things the airbrush on the bird to, but those aren't essential here. We also have this electoral, which is very useful and very important. You can customize your drawing tools by playing around with these parameters, but I'll make a separate video in this class to talk more about this and how to properly use this electoral. You can customize your side layout by going to the window tap. Here, you can choose whether to see that color wheel, the red green blue slider, the hue, saturation and values lighter color mixer this watches and the scratch pad. However, I only use the color wheel on this watches. The second part of the window tap lets you see the navigator. The navigator lets you zoom in on the picture and change the angle, but I don't usually keep it on because it's not very useful for me. You can also add a quick bar, which is this thing up here, which also likes you. Zoom in, change the angle of the picture and stuff like that. Third part is a view selector. Here you can move a picture around using these tools and you can look at the file you're working on. Finally, we have the saddest bar, which is this thing down here which just tells you about the memory load, and it's not very useful. So in my typical Layard, I just use the quick bar on the view selector the third part of the window tap that's you choose to show the brush size. So this is very useful if you want to know how big your brush is or where is gonna be. So this little white circle is the brush size. I usually keep this on and this off because it's what works better for me. The fourth party. No, we know Tab this you hide the command panels and go full screen, but these aren't really necessary. So I really used him. And finally you can choose where the they're panel goes so we can go here on the right. I just changed it to the right or you can leave it on the left right there. You can also change where the color to goes. You look to the right or to the left. I usually keep both on the left because that way I don't have to go jumping from one side of the screen to the other just to change layer or the brush size. But you can play around with this and choose what's best for you. All right, so that's it for the layup video Next. How to set up a new canvas. 5. Creating a New Canvas: Yes, I said before, When you go to file a new campus, it would actually what size and resolution you want your canvas to be. This depends on where you're going to upload your comics. So, for example, I upload on Instagram and Web Toon and Web Toon has a maximum limit of 800 by 800. That's why when a greater new canvas, I always said it to 750 by 750 after I change it to 800 so you can have a white margin. However, if you only plan to upload on instagram, I recommend that you choose the higher canvas size like 1800 by 1800. The resolution is how many pixels per inch you want your image to be. The higher the resolution, the better will look. But also, the higher the resolution, the more space your file will occupy. I keep my resolution at 800 pixels per inch, but you can change it to whatever you want, as long as it's at least over 300 pixels per inch. All right, now that we have a new canvas, we can change its size and resolution here in the canvas tap. You can also choose in what direction you're going to change the size. So, for example, if we click here, then we know that we will add or subtract from below the canvas like so, or if I click here, then we know that we will add or subtract in this part of the canvas. As you can see here, when you're drawing is very important. Then you go to the file tear and save your progress every now and then. That way you avoid losing all of your work. If something happens to the computer or the program crashes here, you can also open an existing file or open and recently close file. When you're finished with your joining, you can export it as any of these files. I usually export it as a J peg, but you can also exported as a PNG, so it has higher quality Photoshopped file etcetera. However, as I said are, you should have just explored my drawings as J Pic files says, the quality is good and it occupies less paste up. Next, we'll talk about how to properly layer your drawings, so stick around 6. Using Layers 1 - The Basics: this lesson is gonna be all about layers. So just like a good joke, it's gonna have multiple layers to it. Uh huh. Okay, So this is probably the most complicated, a crucial part of learning how to properly use painful site. So pay attention and try to keep up. There is a lot to talk about, so all separated into two videos to make it more digestible. In this first lesson, I'll talk about all of these buttons and which ones are actually useful. Well, the fact that I don't use them doesn't mean they're not useful. But let's just say they're not necessary for the types of drawings mid tier artists like me make. Then I'll make a second shorter video on the different layer amounts. A good analogy to understand how the years work is to look at how Disney used to make animated films. Back in the fifties. They invented this multi plane camera, which looked something like this. As you can see, they drew the different components of the background in the main character separately, and then they stack them one on top of the other to make a composite image the way they didn't have to redraw the background each time they make a different frame. So only the characters movements have to be changed similarly in pencil, so you can create different layers and stuffed in one's up of the other in the correct order, so that your drawings look as good as possible. For example, if I draw a circle and then I tried to paint it, I will paint over the liner. But if I create a new layer and put it behind or below the circle, the black outline will not be affected by the coloring behind it. As you can see in this comic, I threw the character in front, the background in another layer, and behind all of that, the coloring and shading. You can change the order of the layers, my holding left click and moving them around. And if I were to change the order of the layers in the drawing with local ugly and messy, and we don't want that to create any layer, you just click on this page shaped bag on here. You can also create a line work layer, but I'll talk about that more in the next course right now. That's just use. Normally, you can click on this folder icon to create a new layer set in a layer set. You can put different layers and just have them only one place. It helps you keep your drawings organized, but to be honest, I don't really use it very much. When you draw something on the top layer, you can click this icon here to pass that drawing onto the layer below. You can also use this button to match for players. This is very useful for me because sometimes I make the Leinart in many different layers, and it's good to combine them so that you can copy and paste it onto another panel, and it just makes it easier to work with. These basically erases whatever you have on your layer and this other budget straight up the lead. Still here. This I can hear lets you show or hide a layer. So, for example, if you don't want your sketch lines to appear in the final drawing, you can just hide them. Then when you exported the image, they will not be on the way so you can hide drawings and make them reappear without having to delete them. You can also change the opacity of certain layers. As you can see here, this is very useful for sketching because since your sketch becomes more transparent, it is easier to later draw the line are on top of it. It just basically makes things less confusing. Okay, so I hope that wasn't too much to go through. Don't worry if you don't remember everything right now, don't make future classes in which you'll see me actually created comic and brutal of these things into context. So now let's talk about Layer, Moz. 7. Using Layers 2 - Layer Modes: all right. So as you can see here, this parlous you choose the layer mood. Here is where it becomes apparent that you can use site to make really artsy cool looking drawings. I could go through each of the layer, Moz, because I know what they're used for. But apart from the two and then I'll talk about now. I can't really think of any examples in which I changed in a remote to make a comic, but you still want to learn about them just for the fun of it. Here's the good tutorial we found on YouTube that explains each layer mode pretty well, so the two main layer most that you'll use our multiply and luminosity multiply. It's mostly used for shading. First you create a layer. Put it on top of whatever you are coloring and change it to multiply. Then you choose a dark color, like a dark red or a dark blue, and paint over where the show should be. Then you can change the capacity the thing we talked about before to make the shadow darker or lighter. However, you can see here that I also painted outside of the drawing to avoid this. We have to sort of clip or cut the colors that are outside, and we do that by clicking on the multiply layer and changing it to clipping group. So basically, in the clipping group setting clips or cuts whatever excess coloring you have, it's very comfortable to use. Normally. You use multiply if you just want to do some quick shaking. So I recommend that you start using it because it saves you a lot of time. When I first discovered this feature, I was like, Whoa, I've been doing it the hard way all along anyway, the second and last later I'll talk about this luminosity. This is one of those things that you only use for very specific situations, but when you do it, it can be really crucial to make this scene feel like it should. If you want to make a collar appear brighter, you can create a luminosity layer on top of it and paint over it with a similar color next . So a recent comic in which I used the luminosity layer was the beautiful planet comic. Here, the character is being shot with a green laser. But in order to make it feel electric. I created a luminosity layer to make the green stand out. I think it really made a difference. I need me. The character looked like he was actually being electrocuted with an alien laser beam, for example. I could also make their eyes glow yellow or I don't know. They're weird. Antennas go purple, pointless. It makes things glow, and it looks very cool. Okay, so that's it for the layer spark. I will reiterate, though, that you will learn more about layers by using them, complain around with them. So, yeah, that's your homework for this video lesson. Just mess around with the layer settings, but first you need some tools to fill your layers with drawings, so check out the next video on how to use and customized or drawing tools. 8. Using and Customizing SAI Drawing Tools 1 - The pen, eraser, airbrush and blur tool: As you can see, there are a lot of drawing tools, but this I mentioned before you will mostly be using the pen eraser on bucket to along with this electoral. As I was writing this part of the lesson, I realized just how much I had to say about these tools. So I decided to split the lesson into two videos, just like I did with the layers lesson. So in this first lesson, all mentioned the pen on the eraser. On the second lesson, I'll talk about the bucket to on the select tomb. Okay, so I used the pen for drawing, obviously, So you just select the pen and draw on your canvas? Simple enough, but what really makes your joins the better. Worse? It's how you customize your pen. Here is where you customize your tools this year, unless you choose the edge shape, it can be either square or more soft and rounded. You can choose whatever you want, but I would recommend keeping it somewhere in the middle. You can choose the size of your pin by using this bar here or these pre selected sizes that appear down here. You should choose your pen size, depending on the canvas size on the proximity of the drawing to the reader. So, for example, in my typical 750 by 750 cannabis, if my character is really close, like in my board comic, I will use a size 12 for size 10 pen. Usually when they are mid distance, I use a size nine pen. I need They're a bit further away size eight, However, on different canvas sizes, you should use different pence isis, and it is ultimately up to you to pick which side is best. Also, you should consider the level of detail your drawings that going back to the board comic even though the character was really close, I used the ways motor pence. I still be able to add more detail to the ice. So while the outline of the character is size 12 or size 10 the eyes or size five or 67 below the size bar there is a min size bar, which lets you choose how much of a difference in pen sizer will be depending on the pressure you apply when drawing. So if I said it's something really low and I draw a line applying more or less pressure. This is how it looks like. I would advise to keep it over 70%. When I started out, I had a phase in which I thought it would be cool to have a low men size as a stylistic choice. But looking back on those comics, I don't think they look as good as they do now, in my opinion, that's why I keep it out 87 or 88% just us a personal preference below them in size, there is a 10 city par. The density is a similar concept to changing the capacity of the pen. This can be good for scheduling stuff, but I only use it when I want to make self changes through the environment. For example, in the last panel, from the board comic, I change the size to 500 the maximum and the density to 10 or 20 to paint around the character and give a sense of darkness and disappointment. Don't make that jokes kids. And in this other comic about Satan internship day, I used it to indicate that there is a fire nearby, since it is selling all that. So, yeah, this is useful to add some cool and most very core dramatic effects to your drawings. This bar allows you to select a texture for your pen. They're not very good textures. Or at least I person you don't like how they go with myself but definitely play around with them because it is a lot of fun. Also, here are the advanced settings. I have no idea how to use them, and I don't think they're really necessary when making cartoonish comics nonetheless here on my settings. If you want a copy them, and if you're very curious to know what they do, try searching for a YouTube tutorial on how to change them. And lastly, I can't talk about the pencil without talking about the stabilizer. The stabilizer is what makes your drawings look nice and smooth, and it is super satisfying. The higher the stabilising value, the higher the lag between when you draw and when the line appears so as you'll see here, it looks like the Linus following my pen. I have my stabilizer in the middle value, more or less, but you can do whatever you want with it now moving on to the eraser. There is not much to say about it, really, Just like the pen, you can change the size of the razor. Here the men size, which is not really important for a new razor. On the density, you can change the density of the eraser to achieve a similar effect toe when you change the density of the pen. So here it is using the pen and here, using the eraser. The erasure also has a stabilising option, but you'll find that sometimes it could be quite annoying, since you don't really need smooth lines when you're raising, and it just makes the whole process lower. So to avoid that, you can hold the shift key while you erase so that you can erase in real time. So, yeah, that's it for the eraser. Oh, and I also said that I sometimes use the airbrush on the bird, too, but they're not super useful, so I'm not going to spend too much time talking about them. Basically, the airbrush is the same as choosing the pen and changing its size and density to give that atmospheric effect I mentioned before and the bird tomb just helps you blend the color into the background, like so. So again. Not very important. But they can come in handy every now and then. All right, now on to the next tool section. 9. Using and Customizing SAI Drawing Tools 2 - Paint bucket and Select tool: on this video, I'll talk about the bucket tour on the selector. The bucket tool is used to feel an enclosed drawing with color. For example, you can filling in a circle by creating a layer below it and using the bucket. All but you can feel in an open shape because the color will escape. This basically saves you lots of time, and it could be very precise, so I highly recommend that you use it here in the detection mode. You should set it to color difference, meaning that it will feel you're drawing based on the difference in the colors around it. You should always aim to keep the color differences in science possible, because that way it will feel you're drawing more precisely. For example, if I set the color difference to 50 it will not properly feel in the circle with color, and there will be white edges. Similarly, if you go to high, it might jump over the line and fill the whole trying. So basically, it's all about finding the right balance every time you use the bucket toe. For example, if I draw a red circle and then I want to feel half of it in blue. Since the colors are quite different, I can get the color difference to be quite high. So I just try line using the pencil, keeping in mind that the line can have open spaces or as a color will escape and then use a bucket to him to fill it. But if instead of a very different color like blue, I use a similar color like a darker red. The color difference will have to be lowered here, for example, I had to go down to below 100 which is pretty low. Also, the thicker the line you will use to define the space you want to fill in, the higher the color difference will be so that's why I recommend you use thicker lines to define the space. If you want to fill in, then finally the selector on this lesson on you. Some keyboard shortcuts like copy and pasted stuff, but I'll talk more about keyboard shortcuts on the next video. So don't worry. I got you covered with the select um, you basically select whatever you have on the layer you are working on. You can use the square tool if you just wanted to let something broadly or these other tools to be more precise with your selection. So, for example, if I draw a circle on this layer and use a select oh, I can now change its eyes, move it around, etcetera. But if I said it's something in another layer, I will only move what's in that layer. Any of you want to change both the color and the Leinart, you have to either move them separately or merge the two layers. I recommend that you moved in separately because it's just more useful to keep the color and line are in separate layers. Once you've selected a drawing, you can change it in various ways. You can scale it the foreman or rotate it. Transform Option is just a combination of the other three, but for this less than I'll use them separately so that it's easier to understand. Scaling means changing the size so you can make your drawing bigger or smaller. However, if you want to maintain the proportions of your drawings, it is very important that you hold your shift key on your keyboard when you do so. So instead of getting bigger or smaller Randomly, it does so maintaining the original proportions for the form to lets you well, the form your drawing. I don't use it very often, but it's there. You want to give it a try, and finally the rotator. Unless you wrote it, you're driving simple enough. I would keep in mind, though, that the more you transformer drawing, the more quality loses. So, for example, here I rotated it and changed its size, and you can see that it looks worse than if I read through it with a larger pen. So try to keep your transfer majors as low as possible, or if you need to make them change the opacity of that layer and then drove over it with a different size pen, like so. And finally, you can also flip their selected drawing horizontally or vertically, by pressing these buttons here and rotated 90 degrees. This is not extremely useful but still worth knowing. Okay, so this is the end of the tool section. Now I'd like to talk to you about keyboard shortcuts 10. Useful Keyboard Shortcuts: I like to end this course with probably the easiest thing to learn, which are keyboard shortcuts. I highly recommend you use these as they make drawing less tedious and more fun. For example, you can hold a space part to move around the drawing without having to use these sidebars for this handle. Also, I'm sure everyone is familiar with copy and paste, but if you're not, you compress control plus C for copying and controlled pleasantly for pasting. This is useful for duplicating backgrounds. Instead of having to redraw them again, you can also use control plus X to cut instead of copy. But then you lose the original trying also control playset is a must. This is the undue shortcut which just takes you one step back in your trying. Remember it because she will use it very often, especially if you're really bad at drawing circles like me. However, my set key broke from using it too much. And now I have to use this button here which has the same function. And right next to it is a redo button in case you wanna undo the Undone. Yeah, very useful when you select a drawing With this electoral, you can hold down the control key to move things around like so. And finally, you can hold the shift key when using the transform toe to keep the proportions when you grow or shrink and joined. And you can also hold down the shift key while using the eraser to erase quicker without the lack of the stabilizer. As I already mentioned in the previous videos, Well, congratulations. You have officially finished this lesson, but don't go away just yet. We now have to apply all of this knowledge to make the class project remember? So open your side program and follow the steps in the next video lesson to create your very own amazing looking joint. 11. Finishing the Class Project: Hi. Welcome to the class project. So if you remember the class project consistent in making a simple drawing using Painter's site and that's basically what we're gonna do now. So first we go to the file tap look like new. And now we choose our canvas size in my case is gonna be 750 by 750. Because that way we get a square, which is what we usually use for making comments and the resolution being I'm just gonna leave it at 800 but just said your something that is at least higher than 300. No, we've got her canvas here, and we have to choose what tools to use for drawing. So I'm gonna choose the pen on. That's just use size 12. Looks good. The men size at 86%. For example. Always when you're drawing the line art set the density at 100. Okay, so we're gonna draw something simple, like circle. I always start with a circle, and as you can see that it's not a good circle, it also we click. Undo controls it. We can also use this button here to undo and I'm not gonna spend too much time making the perfect circle. See, for example, that is more. That's a circle, and we can sort of the race. But can you raise the report and then add a little more certain? Okay, so that's not perfect. But for the sake of this video, we're just gonna assume that is a good circle. Now we can, for example, selected with the selective here. Onda se rotated a little bit. I don't know exactly why, but I just felt like it was tilted. Okay, so now that we've got our quote unquote circle, we can draw something in it, for example, face. So maybe big guys, this is not usually my style, but just for the sake of this video, and that's supposed to be a mouth. Yeah, that's more or less a face for that. Okay, so now we can draw a body. So maybe and neck. Andi shoulders Okay. On arms. Okay. Now he's starting to look like, sort of an alien type of character, right? With their quite a long neck. But let's just assume that this alien race wears clothes, so we create a new layer trust in close and we create a new layer. Because that way, for example, if I do this and I wanna erase that part, I can just erase it without affecting the other line. Whereas if the layers work together, I would I would just be raised over the the other line. So that's why I created a new late on top. It doesn't matter if it's on top or below, but just creating, creating, nearly looking like this. Yeah, okay, so this is our character right now and where we can draw a background for it. So we create a new layer behind everything on Just let's just do a simple line like this. And as you can see, I created a new layer because the background line is going over the character. But since it's in a different layer, I can just erase it without affecting the character. And, yeah, this is This is our liner because I don't want to spend too much of your time on this. Okay, so now we would move on to the coloring. We create a new there below the character and let's go for ah, greenish color. Let's go for a greenish color for his camp all right, here. That's very green. Okay, good enough. And now color forties T shirt, maybe read. I like what teachers, even though I don't have any, but and we can also do something I just like to do in my comics. Since the design looks very plain and simple, I usually just add a circle with a dot in it like this, and it just looks like it's a regular T shirt and not just a bland T shirt, and now we can shave him and to shake him. If you remember, we just had to create a new layer on top of the coloring. Later, change it to multiply and then choose a dark color like dark blue, for example. Here, grab the pin on just at shade where you think shade would be. And don't worry if you go outside of the lines because, well, I'll show you after what we can do. I'll talk more about shading in my next video. No, sorry in my third media, but basically, since the light is coming this way, the shadow will be in the opposite part of his party. Okay, so as you can see, some of the lines are outside of the line art, so we can just change the multiplying clipping group and all of that is gone. But since this shadow is way to dark, we can change the capacity of the Slayer to something like this. And you can see that the shadow is evenly distributed throughout the whole drawing. Okay, now that we've got the character, we can paint the background. So we create a new layer, put it below everything. Andi, let's try to make it look like an alien planet so we can choose movie it. Start Burkle. There's no aliens like purple. And then in lighter, uh, pink for this guy, he said lighter. I think this may be and now we can maybe at some clouds, why not? And this would be basically this will be our character with in his cool alien planet, and now we have to save it. So we go to file and then say, and we can name it, for example, just class project, I guess. And now we have are safe drawing. But the file type is docked site, and we wanted to be that J peg for an image so we can export. It here has a J peg, which is an image we do that we can open image by going to file and then whips open reason and you'll see that says class pro class project Jay Peg. And here did this. You can see that The difference is that this only has one there on this. Ask all of the layers, right, because it is a say file and this is a J pic. So once we felt a J pic file, we can go to canvass, change size and at some white margin by making it bigger. This is our finished panel in a comic. Maybe it's got its wide margin. And it's basically the finished piece, if you may, and this would be your class project. I hope you followed along and that you understood everything I was saying that you were able to relate. The subway used to make this drawing with what I hope will teach to you in the previous lessons. And yeah, please don't forget to post your class project because I want to see what you come up with on what you were able to do. And maybe if you need to improve in certain areas. I could help you with that. So yeah, that is the end of this video. And now let's move on to the final thoughts video. 12. Final Thoughts: Well, it's been a long right.
