I just downloaded Paint Tool Sai a couple days ago and oh my god it's so much better than painting in photoshop! I have never felt more comfortable painting digitally before!

Anyway, this is my first painting done in Sai, so there are lots of awkward errors and whatnot. I told myself I wouldn't be posting anything I deemed as not very quality, but I feel I should at least post something new here- it's been a while.

So yeah. Have a messy test-painting of my pandaren Bolin.

    Awww, he's too precious!

    Yeah, I love SAI for painting, it's a really great program! The nice thing about SAI too is that it works really well with Photoshop, so if you have both you can do all sorts of neat stuff.

      Thank you!

      and I couldn't agree more! I've only had SAI for about four days now and I've already decided how I like to use both programs; Photoshop for the lineart (if any), SAI for the colouring/painting, and photoshop for the finishing touches and colour tweaks. I'm disappointed in myself that I didn't give the program a go earlier, haha!

        Yeah, I can't even remember who recommended me the program in the first place, but man, I'm glad I jumped on it when I did. Super cheap too as far as art programs go.
