How to make circle in SAI by Keichan411 How to make circle in SAI by Keichan411
Hi guys, finally back on the internet, really sorry for the long absence.^^;

I always wanted to make a tutorial about how to make circle without the help of Photoshop, but I'm not very sure if there's already a tutorial about this on DA or not, but I guess it's alright since mine is quite simple.orz

I think most of the SAI user which is familiar with the shortcuts might know this small "trick", so this tutorial is aiming for both beginner and also novice SAI users.

I hope it's not too hard to understand, it's rather straight-forward I guess.^^

Note: If the del key is just the rotation shortcut. If it doesn't work look at SAI's keyboard shortcut commands and assign a key of your choice to the rotation command, it doesn't have to be del.

Thank you! But there's something I want to ask. If I draw the circle a bit too big or something, and I want to select it and change it, the select tool says theres nothing there... It's really frustrating. I just got SAI two days ago and I'm really getting the hang of it. It's just... this that's pissing me off. :T

You probably didn't rasterize the linework layer, you need to select the layer your circle is on, go up to "Layer (L)" on the top tool bar and then click "Rasterize Linework Layer (Z)". Hope this solved it!
