SAI Tutorial by algenpfleger SAI Tutorial by algenpfleger
Edit: SAI is now officially released as v1.0 and available from the developers' website. It costs about €33/$52, which is really a good price.
[link]


So, here you go :) Note it's a little advanced, no "how to draw a loli in SAI".

Here are my screentones: [link]

Hope you'll enjoy!

Thank you for this, I was just dropping the textures into the folders only and wondering why that wasn't working, I didn't know you also had to make an entry of it in a .conf file too. I did that and now the textures are in my SAI! Yay! yay

I have a question. My pen tool stopped working with pen pressure about a month ago, every other tool works just fine, except my pen tool. What do I do?

 Nice tutorial, but I gotta disagree with the statement that Pressure tool is useless. For mouse users, it is very helpful to make a line that has thicker points and sharper points, because with mouse you cant just press harder or softer :/

I'd just like to ask which settings you would usually use for the pen tool while sketching, if I may.

Hi, I tried to add the screentones you generously provided, and tried to write the file names in the brushtext.conf file. But whenever I try to save it, it makes a new .BAK file and doesn't overwrite the current .CONF file.

If by chance it does overwrite, it becomes undone, once I open Paint Tool Sai. Not only is the tones not options for the texture, but when I open the brushtext.conf file again, it's like I never touched it. Please help. >.<

I used the notepad++ program and the normal notepad program to edit the .CONF file.

Ugh... I try to add a the entry into the .conf file and is says make sure the spelled path is correct after I click to save over the existing one and no matter how many times I try it won't update using the new 'start-sai.exe' path that has been used by other users of this program. It's frustrating that I can't get it to work!
