This is lovely, and I think it's fine- I don't even know the difference between soft shading and cell shading, I just don't know a lot about it :P

Sure, if you don't mind- I kinda got that much,
it's just if I was looking at a picture I wouldn't be able to say "It's soft shading" or "it's cell shading" :P

No problem^^
These two styles are actually really easy to identify actually.

Ok, I'll start with soft shading
Soft shading is more of a blended coloring type, where you mix the colors together and blend them (arghgh hard to explain)
A person that I know who has a nice soft shading style is :iconjon-lock:
Here are some examples:


And cell shading is more of a hard type of coloring. (not hard as in difficult, but like, its not as blended as soft)
A good example I know of would be :icondaenarys:
ex:

Do you see the differences between the coloring?

ahhhh I see- I don't get it XD
no no I'm kidding, I think I get it now
the colours in soft shading are more blended together, and the contrasts between colours are more subtle
While cell shading is harder and not as blended, and the contrasts in colours are greater
I think my version of the explanation doesn't make sense, but I get it :P

1) Thank you xD

2) Uh...hmm
Well, what I usually do, since my SAI isn't legit, and it won't save as transparent, I save it as 
'.PSD' (aka photoshop file) then I open up the file in photoshop, and save it as '.PNG' and it automatically makes all the 'white' parts of the image transparent


Hope I helped xD
