Yeah I have some sketches laying around that I'd like to be able to make into poses. Or even just be able to draw up any time I want. Though I have no idea how to make said sketch into a pose that will be allowed on chats.
I'm not sure if there are any tutorials on this already? Sorry if there are, but I guess I'm looking for more than one style on how YOU do it. Also more updated versions as well.

I mean what are the steps?
Do I do a think outline?
Do I need to greyscale or can I just shade it?

Anyone who can help would be an angel<3

What i do is... :

1.line it on sai
2. Then magic wand it on sai and get rid of loose pixels.
3. Go to the selection tab and click invert.
4. Color it, the make another layer to shade it(if you want)
5. Then get rid of the background(if you made one) and the sketch lines(which would probably be the background since you traced it to be a pose)
6. Save as a .psd
7. Open photoshop
8. Then save as a .png

Aaaand its a pose! That's how i do it with my poses.... If that helps you....

Depends on the program and what you want. It may vary person to person. Here is my tutorial on making poses (I generally start from a pencil sketch):
