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:

with the "Stringy_M" and "Middle_Flat", how did you get that? It's not one of the options for me, is it something you add or is it like in an update or something?

Since this is currently on the "hot" page, does anyone have something similar but for Photoshop? I'm interested, since, well, there's like a thousand confusing presets for everything in there.

Meh, I'll figure it out. SAI is a simpler version of CSP, I'm gonna try to create custom brushes based on the parameters of these. Thanks for posting the parameters too btw.

um im begginer just dont know how to use it yet
can somebody help me out how to join lines cuz when i use bucket it fill whole page
please
Reply
:iconisihock:
Isihock Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2018
could you show me an example please? (just take a screenshot and submit it to sta.sh on DA and link it !! :0) 

if if you're trying to bucket full on the same layer as the lineart though I wouldn't recommend that,
you need to colour in a different layer as the lineart haha

:iconwarriors4lyfe:
Warriors4Lyfe Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2018
The reason why the bucket fills the whole page is because the figure you drew is not a closed shape. There could be gaps and spaces among the line art and the fill tool fills everything in a given amount of space so that's why it fills the whole page. Make sure to double check the line art before using the fill tool. Hope this helps! :D

harshmama Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2018
ok so i draw something using curves right now how to connect the lines so that when i use bucket to color it wont cover the whole layer due to space left between ,because the lines were not joint.

:iconwarriors4lyfe:
Warriors4Lyfe Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2018
just use the pen or pencil tool (or anything you can draw with) to connect the lines. you can draw them in with the mouse or if you have a connected drawing pad, like me. Is that what you meant?
