Lifes about abandoning dream after dream
Hopes and expectations float away downstream
Its time to kiss our childish ways goodbye
Grow up, give mediocrity a try
The games they have to stop
No more hi-yah
Not even a karate chop
Can face up to what maturity means
And forget about our martial arts dreams
       
 (Yes I memorized the entire song, stop judging me)

Interesting tutorial! I find it really difficult to set brushes in SAI so it's really helpful to try how others do it. Though I usually end up using my own settings, which is good I guess, since I'm developing my own style ^_^

BTW, the names of your brushes just earned you 1000+ respect points from me!

From what I understand;
1) Start with the lineart. Seems to not use black as color for it, but something that can compliment the colors of the full art later on. Use the pen tool.
2) Lower the density to 27. Fill the base color for the skin and then use the same color/density to add shadow effects.
3) Repeat step 2, but for the hair instead.
4) Throw out the vivid colors you were using. Grab the color select tool (lawl for fail proper names) and grab each of the new colors- they should be unsaturated and lighter.
5) For each color (?) go back to the lighter pen density, create a dark to light scale to create a subtle dark to light effect. Use these colors for shadows and highlights. Clean up lineart.
6) Repeat the last part of step five and create more intense shadows/lighting where needed. Use saturated, darker colors where needed. See bottom for blending/smoothing example.

Or, that's what I figured out. The bottom part is just explaining how to blend two colors to make one with the brush tool, and then how to use the waterbrush tool to smooth things out.

-/hopes that makes sense-
