my sai brushes + tips by Cakeindafridge my sai brushes + tips by Cakeindafridge
AHA SO A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE BEEN ASKING FOR MY BRUSH SETTINGS SO HERE HAVE THEM
SMACKS IN UR FACE
i'm hoping to do a shading tutorial sometime soon, but i need to find the time first hhh ; n ;

BRUSHES

    |everything: basically my brush for everything XD i use it for sketching, lining, colouring and shading!
    |sketch: kinda gives the appearance of a pencil sketch
    |shading: a new shading brush i recently made! it gives really nice & clean strokes (best used for erase cell shading)
    |colouring: brush i use for colouring large sections, not really good for details or markings
    |writing: brush i use for writing xDD (be sure to edit the tool settings by double clicking the brush icon)
    |blur: my blur tool 8D

*THESE BRUSHES CAN ONLY BE ACHIEVED IF YOU ARE USING A TABLET, THEY WILL NOT WORK WITH A MOUSE*

DOWNLOAD THE BRUSH TEXTURES HERE: Brushtex
locate your sai folder, and put them into the folder 'brushtex'


PAINTS EFFECTS

    |outline: gives an outline around the selected layer, achieved by using the fringe effect
    |texture: gives a texture to the selected layer, achieved by using the texture effect


OTHER USEFUL TOOLS

    |invert brush: it inverts the brush lmao xD basically turns a brush into an eraser with the same settings, really good for shading!
    |clipping group: basically locks the above layer to the one underneath it- you won't be able to paint outside of what you have on the underneath layer even though you're drawing on a whole different layer, really good for colouring and shading
    |selection source: when you change the settings in your magic wand tool to selection source, it will always select from this layer no matter what layer you have selected at the time- good for colouring & shading bc you don't need to switch back and forth between the layers !


I HOPE THIS HELPS SOME OF YOU GUYS
it took me a while to work some of these things out myself XDD
if you have questions i'll try my best to answer them ; u ;

Wait- Are you able of keeping your brushes edited even after you closed/opened SAI?
Because I cant and its a pain to constantly have to recreate all the brushes

If you haven't fixed this yet...
Go to the Sai icon and right click, then click properties.  Go to the Compatibility tab and check "Run this program as an administrator."  Now it should save brush information!

okay now I have two new problems
-I have to do the administrator password every time I open sai I don't know it
-when I want to open images (I sketch traditional) instead of opening my files it opens the administor's files
okay I know im a noob but internet doesn't help

Those I'm not sure, I'm not that good either.  Those may be admin settings, if you can try there.

OOo, how do you get that cool kind of soft 'glow' around the outside of the drawn image? (like around the  outline/texture bubbles)
