BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBRUSH SETTINGS click for high res
some of my most commonly used brushes, im always experimenting so they change a lot
Brand new brush settings I use for my works in Paint Tool SAI!
I’m having trouble uploading the brush shapes/textures to Tumblr currently, so I’ll probably upload them somewhere else later…
(I can’t really explain how to install brush shapes/textures into SAI, at least not in a short way, so it’s best if you search for tutorials, or ask me personally :^0)
Sai brush settings! A whole bunch!
The custom blotmaps and elemaps I found online.
haha siggy’s brushes welcome.
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
my brushes I use aren’t really all that special! I just use the default brushes that come with Photoshop. the “sketching” and “inking” are both just the “Hard Round” brush with pressure opacity turned on and off. “sketching #2/details” is the Watercolor Loaded Wet Flat Tip brush. I use it for more of a rough painty sketch versus the first brush. and the last one I love to use for painting or just blocking in colors generally is this awesome triangle brush. thassit!
my brushes are pretty basic, haha.
^ this method was taken from Tumblino, btw.
^ also use a white size 1 for highlights often.
^ I don’t use that very often anymore, but it’s still neat.
There you go! All the brushes I use! Enjoy!
here ya go~
I”m just reblogging this post because a lot of people have be asking me what brushes i’ve been using.
here you go~
YA ! !! ! BRUSH SETTING S „, 1/2…. hahHUH.,
The crayon settings are actually by crayonchewer !!! ! im jsut putting the se here becuas e i seem to have terrible luck with losing my settings thanks to technical difficulties
Someone on dA asked about my brushes so here they are. Nothing special. I usually use the acrylic brush for lines I know will be more wavy like hair or loose clothes.
Just as I answered in a previous ask, majority of my works included experimenting so this is probably far from being the actual right way to achieve DR style but it’s what I did so ahaha sorry :v
I used Sai.
<—Soft line brush—Flat brush—Airbrush—Eraser—>
Soft line- Used for sketching, colouring, painting. You’ll need to be familiar with the pressure sensitivity when blending so better get a feel for when to press hard to get solid colours. Adjust the min size depending on where you’re using it, eg. at 0 for fine lines.
Flat brush- The whooshy effect lines. Again, adjust min size to your preference; set to 0 to get the pointy flick stroke.
Airbrush- Didn’t use it on John but tried on Jane. Mostly on her face to give it that glowing kinda look. Else, mostly used for minor adjustments of colours and extra blending.
Eraser- Self explanatory, adjust density to fit your needs. 20% then stroke a couple of times to get the whispy lines. I Used 80-90% for normal erasures
After sketching, added rough shading, then the base colours on a different layer underneath the sketch. I just flattened it afterwards and worked on one layer all through out.
I went and redid a lot of parts as I progressed.
For after effects, moved it to photoshop: duplicated the whole thing -> gaussian blur -> set blur layer to linear burn at 25% opacity
Also added a pattern overlay on the original layer: greyscale paper (kraft paper) -> Overlay at 45%
First of all, thank you for the ask! I’ve never had anyone ask me this before, and it took me a while to answer because.. I don’t really have any planned out methods for drawing, so I hope this may help even in the slightest;;
I guess I use brushes mainly for 3 things: lineart for cell shading, coloring, and adding more defined lines to painting. I generally only use the acrylic and ink pen brushes.
With the ink pen, I just use the default setting for thin, crisp lineart.
The acrylic brush is much more versatile for me. I color with it, I line with it, and I also sketch with it. The difference for me is messing with the color blending, opacity mix and color spread.
TO BE HONEST I really don’t know what I’m doing half the time www;; My tip of advice would be: just experiment. Discovering things on your own is better than trying to emulate someone else’s style.
Also, it would be good to get familiar with the short keys for all the different tools. You can even set your own short keys for some tools. It makes a world’s difference while you use it!
Brush-hunting on tumblr is fun.
