a tush?? you surely mean The Tush. Capitalize my title next time.
I’ve dabbled in digital before, but when I started seriously working in digital it was cause of the influence of my group of friends at the time! (WHO IM STILL FRIENDS WITH BTW) (thanks a LOT u nerds gosh)
I believe it was about eeh…..3 or 3 and a half years ago that i really started seriously working with digital programs. Started in gimp! I actually had to use my laptops touchpad to paint there for awhile…that was painful. I remember I had to do this (beware: terrible old art) all with a touchpad on gimp and believe me youll never be more grateful for a tablet than after trying to seriously paint with a touchpad. Eventually moved to photoshop and now Im trying to figure my way around sai, although I still use photoshop often!
Two ways really!
The first and arguably the simplest is to add a texture (i prefer paper textures such as the ones hibbary has, but you can also scan a high res of some watercolor paper or any sort of paper youd like!) on top of your image, and then set it to either soft light or overlay. Sai doesnt have the soft light feature, so if Im using sai I usually use overlay, turn down the luminosity and saturation of the texture and sometimes lower the opacity as well.
The second is to use textured brushes! Which I really love to do-I actually need to pull back a bit with textured brushes cause I feel like i can go a bit TOO overboard with them hehe. Its really fun to play with though so try it if you’d like!
Also a combination of both a texture layer and textured brushes works as well! I hope this helps ;w;
