Custom Brushes - SAI by choco-kye Custom Brushes - SAI by choco-kye

HOLD UP! THIS THING ACTUALLY HAS SOME IMPORTANT INFORMATION. YOU SHOULD REALLY READ IT!


First off, the download button WILL NOT download the brushes! It only downloads the textures you need to use them! You have to actually create the brushes in SAI.

:bulletyellow:To make a new brush/tool in Paint Tool SAI:bulletyellow:
Please go read this lovely tutorial provided by =DarlingMionette


:bulletyellow: PLEASE READ IF YOU'RE HAVING PROBLEMS USING THESE BRUSHES!!! :bulletyellow:
Check these things first before you comment:
:bulletred: Are you using a mouse or a tablet?
- If you're using a mouse, please note that the results will not be the same. These are pressure-sensitive brushes and require a pressure-sensitive tablet in order to achieve the result as shown.
:bulletred: What brand of tablet are you using?
- IF YOU'RE USING ANY LINE OF WACOM TABLETS, PLEASE TRY REINSTALLING YOUR DRIVERS FROM THE WEBSITE BEFORE YOU ASK FOR HELP! Reinstalling drivers usually fixes the problem.
:bulletred: Is your pressure sensitivity on?
- Check this by testing it out on one of SAI's default brushes (like "Pen"); if the line doesn't change thickness, then it's not working properly.
- TO FIX THIS:
* Close out of SAI and start it up again
* Reinstall your tablet drivers if that doesn't work (especially if you're using a Wacom)

Final Note: You really don't have to have the settings EXACTLY as I do. Play around with your settings. Don't see this as a "omg you have to do this EXACTLY THE WAY I HAVE", but instead as a guide to help you play around with your SAI settings. Feel free to change these brushes to however you want.

edit June 13, 2013: Updated the preview image so that it shows off the brushes better (and hopefully makes things less confusing when it comes to making them!) .zip download should still remain the same. If the download is broken, please let me know~

I was wondering if you can help me? I've ran out of room on my Paint tool sai thing to make more brushes. So is there a way to make more brushes? Or do I have to erase some?..

I can't help you there, sorry. >:
I'd recommend going through and deleting brushes you don't use if you want to add more. Or you could consolidate some of the brushes that have similar settings and just edit the settings each time you want to use the brush you deleted.

would this work for easy paint tool sai?

That is exactly the program it's designed for, yes!
Easy Paint Tool Sai, Paint Tool Sai, and Sai are the same program.

For some reason I don't have the 'Noise' option? It just has Spread&Noise.

:iconchoco-kye:
choco-kye Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2014  Student Digital Artist
If you download the .zip file, it includes the noise elemap. To install it, you need to extract all the files from the .zip, copy "Noise" and paste it in the "elemap" folder in your SAI program files. If that doesn't make sense, I included a readme in the download folder that explains it a bit better. But if you don't want to do that, I think Spread&Noise can achieve the same effect. c:

question: do you know how to rename your brushes?
Reply
:iconchoco-kye:
choco-kye Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Yeah. c: You can double-click on the brush you want to rename, and a box will pop up. You can also set a keyboard shortcut for that key there for faster brush changes~

They're pressure-sensitive brushes, so while you can still use them with a mouse, the results may not be the same as what's shown. Some people have said that they can use the cloud brush pretty well with a mouse, but I'm not sure about anything else.

Like I said, you can still use them with a mouse, but I'm not guaranteeing that they'll look or work like what the picture shows. All I can tell you is that you'll have to try it out for yourself, and if it doesn't work, then I'm sorry, but there's nothing I can do.

Hello hello~ I'm having trouble understanding as to why my SAI doesn't have Noise and other options within "(simple circle)" - I mean, I have them all already pre-installed and all but I have nothing besides that TT^TT heeeeelpp pweaseeee~~

So you downloaded the textures and copied them to the correct folders, right? Now you need to find the "start-sai.exe" in the Paint Tool SAI folder and run that. It should automatically search for your new brushes and textures and add them to the program.

The end of this tutorial shows what I'm talking about better, in case I confused you:

Hope that solved your question. c:

That's all you're going to get when you download. It's just the textures, not the actual brushes. SAI isn't like photoshop or gimp where you download certain brush files. You have to manually create and edit the brush settings by yourself. Please read through the description again to find out how to do that.

Try opening SAI again after you restart your computer. And did you copy them to the correct folders? That's really all I can say.

Try googling your problem then. I'm actually not an expert in SAI, so apart from what I wrote up there, I have no idea how to fix it. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

I am trying to create the smudge brush, but for some reason it does not allow me to check mark the blend option which would allow me to specify other settings... how do you enable the box?

Try the waterpen smudge. If that doesn't work for you, then do another search. I'm sure there's something out there.

Um, I have a question. When I adjusted the advanced settings to make my own custom brush and closed off Easy Paint Tool Sai, I opened it a few minutes later to draw again and the custom brush wasn't there. Do you know why this happened and how I can make sure it doesn't happen again? I want to be able to save and have permanent custom brushes.
Reply
:iconchoco-kye:
choco-kye Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Mmm, no. I don't know why that happened. Did you scroll through the entire toolkit, and are you sure you didn't accidentally miss it?
I guess something you could do after making the custom brush is to draw a little doodle and save it before you close out of SAI and see if that keeps your brush there? I've never had that happen to me before, so I wouldn't know how to fix it, sorry. xD; Hope you figure it out though.
