    I LOVE THAT GUY! I used to love his art on dA, I picked up a lot of ideas just from looking at his art. (Or her? I've never known.) Anyway, I'd like to vouch for this source.

    SAI's brush and acrylic brush both have nice customizable functions like textures and shit that you can tweak as you go. You can also find nice texture packs for SAI if you want more, which I use (mainly smear and grating). Oil water and water are better for blending versus the blur tool. Block in your colors and your value, smooth, refine.

    Wahhh!! I just peeped into this thread to see this. I started messing with the water tool recently and its pretty interesting! I'm slightly apprehensive to using textures, but I definitely don't mind giving them a shot! Thanks a lot for the extra advice! <:

    My exact response as well, I've never touched this tool before. Mind=blown.

    I mainly use the spread texture when painting, it gives it a painterly feel, but sometimes, the simple circle is enough.

    Yo if you're looking for some good tools, I have a great brush pack from Onta that works wonders for painting! The file is a .rar, so you'll need Winrar to unzip it.

    http://daily.hardblush.com/2009/04/o...ushes-for-sai/

    It seriously made all the difference for me. I've actually been able to start lineless painting thanks to these tools! If you have any questions about installing brushes, textures, or making them just let me know and I can help you out.

    This is also another really handy link: http://notzilon.tumblr.com/post/12173962320
    There are 4 links here, to a how-to tutorial with sai brushes and installation and a bunch of fantastic brush textures. The chalk is one of my favorites.

    And also, heres something really helpful:

    http://swaetshrit.tumblr.com/post/24...nding-dilution

    This breaks down what the various settings effect in sai, and it can be really helpful for making your own brushes.

    I have a TON of links to art resource stuff so if you're looking for anything lemme know haha.

    Seriously guys, the brushes you're using make all the difference. This is a nice base to start out with, you can tweak them once you're comfortable with the settings. I highly recommend them to anyone interested in getting serious about digital art.

    I liked the example but it wouldn't work for me even though I extracted all of the files into my SAI folder.

    I use the official version, not the fan one, is there a way to get it working with the official version? (The one that has no start-sai.exe)

    Nevermind, I got it working, I'm an idiot. :V

    This is also fantastic, by the way. The palette knife is fun to play with and these brushes work so much more efficiently than my custom ones.

    Edit: Those tutorials are pretty helpful as well, I didn't know what the persistence actually did until now. :V

    :> No problem! I'm glad to hear you got it working. I love these brushes a lot and having them made a huge difference in my digital art, so I'm always eager to share them when I can.
