The tutorial of how I achieve watercolor effect in Sai! :) I highly recommend using real watercolor paintings (your own or ones found on the internet) as reference.
And here you can find a few useful links:

Okay! So here is a rough step-by-step process on how I create an illustration. This is going to be a long post (by typical Tumblr standards anyways – perhaps not so long if you read like, actual books or whatever), so please bear with me. As a general disclaimer, I probably don’t fully understand everything that I’m talking about. I’m still trying to learn just as much as anyone else. Please continue reading for the full process.

Found these pictures through The Militant Baker’s website. Through each picture you can see women as they actually are and every single one of them is beautiful.
I’ve been asked a lot about how I draw hoods, mostly Talon’s hood, so I hope this helps a little? Just a pretty basic thing but hey there ya go
Hoods are pretty cool, they usually have a lot of variety in how they can look (and sometimes people even wear two hoods at once) so just get creative with it and have fun
