Anonymous asked: out if curiosity what program do you use for art? and if you use pant tool SAI, what are your brush settings?


Answer:

jo-scribbles:

I do indeed use Paint Tool SAI !

ok I’ve doodled up some little thingies here ok yeah (they aren’t terribly great bear with me)

SO first up we have my trusty pen tool. I use this guy for everything mostly sketching + linearts ect ect
image

Next is this awesome brush thing. Good for painting?? very blendy. You kinda have to get used to scribbling with it though, to get vibrancy. Once you do, though, its GREAT for making palettes.

This one looks a lot the same I know but its a lil different I SWEAR. I switch between these two  a lot they’re a gr8 pair for speedpainting

image

This one’s kinda like the top two but its really smooth!!!! so smooth
image

aaand last but not least, I like to use this nifty lil guy for backgrounds n stuff.

(I switch between Fuzystatic & Fine_Flat a lot)

I use lots of others a lot, depending on whatever effect I need (airbrush for glowing, a smoke brush for mist/fire/smoke, ect ect) But these are my main & favourites!! (◡ ‿ ◡ ✿)

I’ve been getting a lot of asks lately about the brushes and textures I use in my work, so here’s a BIG FAT REFERENCE POST for those of you who were curious! Bear in mind that I’m really lazy and don’t know what half the settings do, so don’t be afraid to experiment to figure out what works best for you :>

BRUSHES

Pencil

I use the pencil tool with SAI’s native paper texture both for sketching and for applying opaque color with no blending. Lower opacities give it the feel of different pencil hardnesses, while full opacity makes it more like a palette knife, laying down hard-edged, heavy color for detail work or eventual blending with other brushes.

Ink Pen

Mostly made this because I’m lazy and I didn’t want to have to keep turning my textures off/opacity up when I wanted to ink something (even though I don’t do it very often), or lay down flat colors. I find the line quality to be much more crisp than Photoshop, and you can manually adjust in-program stabilization to help smooth out hand wobbles.

Round Brush

The plain ol’ brush tool acts as sort of an in-between for me in terms of brush flow. It’s heavier than my usual workhorse brush, for faster color application and rough blending, but not as heavy as the pencil tool, which has no blending at all. I like to use the canvas texture on this brush to help break up the unnatural smoothness that usually accompanies digital brushes, but it works just fine without.

Flat Brush

A brush tool set to flat bristle is by far my favorite to paint with. I don’t use any textures with it because I think the shape of the brush provides enough of that by itself. I use it for everything from rough washes to more refined shaping and polish. It’s just GREAT.

Watercolor

Best used for smooth blending, washes, gradients, and smoky atmospheric effects.

Cloud

Basically a grittier version of the watercolor tool, because too much smoothness weird me out. Good for clouds and fog, as the name suggests, or just less boring gradient fills.

TEXTURE OVERLAY

To further stave off the artificially smooth look of digital painting, I almost always overlay some sort of paper texture, and it’s almost always this one, which I scanned and edited myself. You’re all welcome to use it, no permission required!

Using overlays in SAI is just as easy as using them in Photoshop. Just paste the texture into its own layer above everything you want it to apply to, and change the layer mode to Overlay. That’s it!

Want a more prominent texture? Up the contrast. Something more subtle? Lower the contrast or reduce the layer opacity. You can also use a tinted overlay to adjust the overall palette and bring a little more color unity to an otherwise disparate piece! Just be aware that too much texture can hurt the readability of the work beneath it, so I’d err on the side of subtlety.

Hope that helps!

Hello followers!
I apologize for being inactive in replying questions and posting brushes. Ive been sort of lazy and stressed for the last couple months. But anyways, here are some things that will change!

  •  add tags 
  •  stop reblogging brushes with textures that are not default/not have a link where they got it ( I’ll keep the ones already on the blog)
  • a resource page/faq Its gonna have tutorials and stuff (especially from deviantart because they have great resources there) 
  •  answering messages more often 
  • and other things!

I’ll try to start/work on these next week or this week.
And of course, if I dont get to them PLEASE remind me 
Sorry for any inconveniences I have caused and thank you!

sup! long time no see tumblr!

so… i’ve decided to share my paint tool sai brushes, no i mean marker brush settings. I’ve seen the trend of copic markers, but I never get to buy any because I can’t find any in the local stores and I don’t secure 100% of how to buy stuff in the internet. These are just stimulations, my friend; hence you are free to use them in any of your works.

the other resources needed for the other brush settings are here (i hope the link works for everyone) :

For people curious about my settings
1. I use the brush tool for almost everything, even for lineart. Easy for rough sketching.
2. Blending, works better with a texture thrown in.
3. Flat brush gets you a semi painterly look, wonderful for laying down color and whatnot.
4. Overlay abuse, I actually do most of my color blending with them haha
Brushes downloaded from here I believe
