Easy Paint Tool SAI Complete Tutorial Part 3 by Empty-Frames Easy Paint Tool SAI Complete Tutorial Part 3 by Empty-Frames
This tutorial covers:
:bulletblue: The brush settings for "Blend" "Size" & "Dens"
:bulletblue: Creating your own brushes
:bulletblue: Textures
:bulletblue: Duplicating tools

I thought I'd just put creating brushes as one tutorial on its own, instead of throwing it in with other things.

The next tutorials will cover:
:bulletgreen:Linework layer, its menu buttons and tools.
:bulletgreen:Normal layer and its tools.
:bulletgreen:Hue and Saturation controls.
:bulletgreen:Brightness and Contrast controls.
:bulletgreen:The Layer Panel

Tutorial Parts-
Part 1
Part 2

Others:
Modifications:
Pre-Sets:
SAI TOOL PRESETS
If your Easy Paint Tool Sai DOESNT have tools (or if you messed them up and cant get them back to normal)

1) Right click on a blank tool square

It will then come up with a list of options.
Choose the tool you wish to make. Heres my order:

Click PEN a new PEN tool will come up.

To make basic pen set the little slide bars too -
Normal/Multiply- Normal
Edge shape - Last selection (Square)
Size - Any
Min size - 0%
Density - 98%-100%
Texture - None (A drop down box)
Layer - None (Another drop down box with canvas paper etc in it)

Tick advanced

Quality - 4 (Best)
Hardness - 0
Min density - o
Max density - 100%
HardSoft - 100
Pres

I have a question, how do you make the ends of the strokes all pointy? mine's just a circle. Someone told me to set the pressure stabilization to 1 or 0, but that didn't quite work...

pen pressure is only available on tablets. As far as I'm aware touch screens dont have pen pressure, sorry.

Ok I just downloaded the free version of sai, how do you get all of the brushes To Be Like How you wrote and drew things in this tutorial? My Brush is just a straight line it doesnt have like the fade out at the end, do i need a tablet for that? if not how?

yeah you need a tablet with pressure sensitivity. The only way i can suggest getting tapered lines witout one (only for outlines though) is the lineart layers/vector layers where you can use the line and curve tool then use the pressure tool to change the pressure (line thickness) at certain points.

Its not that hard.
Next to the new layer button above the layer panel thingo, is a button that looks like the new layer, but with the pen.
In that, you get "exclusive" tools. Then use the Line tool for basic lines, and use the edit tool to click in the middle to curve it about.
The pressure tool will give you the tips and different "sizes" in one stroke.

You should know what a pressure sensitive tablet is, but most "art" tablets have pressure sensitivity. If ya dont, then it senses how hard your pushing against the tablet with your tablet pen. It then translates this into thickness. You can also tweak it to make it lighter/darker with your pressure. Look up a wacom ad for a better explaination.

Oh, Ik my grandpa recently got a little wacom, the ones without a screen. Also we have a kindle so i have 3 things really.

The wacoms are pressure sensitive, so that'll work without the lineart layer :3
The kindle...isnt that like an ebook carrier? Anyway, Im pretty sure kindles dont have pressure sensitivity.

i just need to know: if i made a lineart on 1 layer
is it posseble to click on something to colour it in on an aother layer

Empty-Frames Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
of course. the panel that isnt used for tools is the layer panel. above where your layer 1 is, there is a section of buttons. The one that looks like a sheet of paper, is the "new layer" tool. If you click that, it will make "layer 2" you can then click that, and drag in underneath layer 1, to colour under neath your lines. I will be covering all of this in my next tutorial more fully, which I will be trying to work on today.

Mmm, are there any other versions of Paint Tool SAI? I was sort of wondering.


Other than that, great tutorials :)

Thanks for these helpful tutorials.
Just one question: what version of SAI do you use? I'm using 1.1.0 and I can't seem to find that Smoothing Pressure slider you mentioned
Reply
:iconempty-frames:
Empty-Frames Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
1.0.1 apparently. It doesn't always come up, as its only under the blend settings, so unless you're using a tool that uses the blend settings, it wont be there.

Hm yeah, I looked at the water tools and the brush, and it's nowhere there :< oh well, maybe I'll have a look at that version

hmm. it may have been taken out or added to different versions. I find that I don't use it all that much honestly, its not something I like to mess with too much.
