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:

A quick question: When creating Marker Tool #2, how do I apply/create Middle_Flat in the (simple circle) pull down tab? 

I tried out the others and they all work great!

It should be there automatically, along with all the other options o: if it's not, Stringy_M, Rough_Flat and Middle_Flat are the same

You just use this as reference on your Paint tool sai
Add new brushes and change the setting of each.
And no you cant download them

I just recently started using SAI and I really needed some help with the brush settings so this is very useful, thank you! :D But I have one quick question: is there a way to save these brushes as pre-sets or soemthing? Or do I have to adjust them every time I open SAI.

They should save automatically o: Do you have the full  version of SAI?

I have a question. On your marker2 and acrylbrush you have a different setting, when others have simple circle set. How did you change it? The default setting is either simple circle,spread,spread and noise, bristle, flat bristle. I don't know how to add different ones, yet you got stringy_m and middle_flat?
