I have a few art questions that I was hoping someone somewhere could answer for me. It's mainly about Paint Tool SAI.
I know there is the original SAI that you can get for like $50-70 as long as you have Paypal and then there are all the "fan made" SAI's that are free. I was wondering if there are any major differences between the original SAI and some of the ones most people here on dA use. Like are there features or tools that the fan made ones have that the original doesn't? Does the original have stuff the others don't? I'm sure with the fan made ones each have their own specialties so if anyone knows about a few of them and can kind of give me examples that would be great. ;u;
I'm just trying to figure out whether I'm just going to have to make a Paypal to get the original or if there are better, more different, free versions out there that I would want instead of the original anyway. If anyone can give me any kind of answer for this it would be much appreciated. I wasn't sure where else to ask. XD I looked around for a few SAI groups but haven't found one that I felt I should ask this kind of question at yet.
Also if anyone has any tips or tutorials for drawing/shading backgrounds... Please please share them. x.x I fail at backgrounds so hard...
