SAI brushes by Isihock SAI brushes by Isihock

IT SAYS IN THE DESCRIPTION HOW TO MAKE THEM, YOU DONT DOWNLOAD THEM
Newer versions of SAI don't have some brush settings but you can download them here: comments.deviantart.com/1/4307…



FAQ:
- you need a TABLET for these to work as you need pen pressure which a mouse does not have
- if these aren't working, it is most likely a problem with your SAI
- I don't know how to fix issues with brush settings not saving sorry!


Thought I'd share some of my brushes since a couple of people have asked <3

These are my favourites/the ones I use most C:

1. Painting Brush: The Brush I use for most of my painting. It blends really nicely but you have to merge all your layers. It's nice and smooth and especially good for grass, fur, and small details.

2. Marker Tool: I mostly use the Marker tool for sketching, because it's soft and subtle and lines just turn out so much nicer <3 Also good for bushes or leaves. (fav.me/d6v9lg6 as shown here) Picture above is a really bad example of what it is capable of, sorry ahaha :L

3. Pencil Tool: Basically the same as the pen tool you automatically get in SAI, but with slightly changed settings for sharp, crisp and smooth lines C: I always use this one for lineart.

4. Marker Tool #2: Completely different to marker tool one. I use this one to lay down my colours while painting and not much else. It blends ok. Reason I like it though because its really good to lay down the colours you're going to use, as it's slightly see through, without making it look messy.

5. Acrylic Tool: I really need to rename my tools pff. Basically the same as the previous tool but with much better blending.

6. Fur Tool: Although I've never actually found a use for this tool (sigh) it'd be really good for fur and I love the way it looks //v\ just haven't found a use for it yet.

7. Water Tool: Ahaha wow I use this tool way too much. I use it for getting my shading to look softer at some parts, I use it for blurring, blending, lighting, adding effects ect. ect. Its one of the tools that comes with Paint Tool SAI when you first get it but I think the settings are changed a bit.

How to make new brushes in SAI

Most of you probably already know how to make yourself brushes in SAI, but here it is just in case. Right click one of the light grey, empty boxes underneath your tools, and select a tool base. (for example pen, brush, marker, acrylic, eraser) This will be the starting point of your brush. then just edit the settings, and give it a name C:

Feel free to make/use these C:

Is there a way to allow Gimp to have similar settings?
If not, then it is understandable.

It's fine.

But still love the work and thus see it as a challenge to match with freeware.

I've set my own lineart preset, but I'm getting tired of it since I used the marker as the base tool and it's kinda see-through (even putting the opacity to the maximum), think I'll give yours a shot!! Thanks!! :D

As soon as I test it (probably will happen today, since I have a lineart video to capture and edit later) I'll let you know!! Thinking of making a comparison, too, it'll be nice~
Thanks again! :D

For marker2, I don't have the texture Stingy_M, is that because I bought SAI myself, or did you make it? If so, is there some way to download it? I love that brush

Reply
:iconisihock:
Isihock Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2018
yes it's just a normal brush! I added the E so I would be able to identify it from my other brushes haha

Do you draw with tablet or mouse? Because I think it's different when you use a tablet instead of a mouse, and the lines look different when you draw with a tablet , i use mouse and i think that is difference and people have problems with tool settings if they draw with a mouse?? uvu
Reply
:iconisihock:
Isihock Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2018
yes, you need a tablet for these to work! 
I thought it was assumed since you can't really use SAI without one haha
a mouse doesn't have pen pressure which is why most of SAI tools don't work as they should with a mouse lol

I'm not quite sure if I messed something up but my marker tool looks way smaller and thinner than yours.
