SAI Brushes 3 by ToadsDontExist SAI Brushes 3 by ToadsDontExist
Hey everyone! Today, I was directed to to these fantastic textures:

And I thought, hmm, these would make some great brushes! So this pack has a few cool grungey paper brushes, as well as other random brushes. I also included Ripple from the last pack, because I don't know if I fixed it correctly. Anyway, I hope you enjoy the brushes!

If you have problems installing or using, check out my tutorial, and previous questions I've answered! I am NOT a master of SAI, and generally, I have no answers to your problem! I'm really sorry!

Installation Instructions
1. Download and unzip the set
2. Copy all the BMP images (other than the preview :P)
3. Paste them in your Blotmaps folder in the SAI folder
4. Copy start-sai.exe (if you don't have it already)
5. Paste it in the same folder as sai.exe (one level up from the blotmaps folder)
6. Run start-sai.exe
7. The new brushes can be used by selecting them from the menu underneath "Density," where it says "Simple Circle" by default.

More detailed instructions can be found in the Read Me, PLEASE read that before asking me! :D

Important Note
See that little number right next to the brush drop down menu? Play around with that. Different brushes work better under different settings. For example, I like to use the Script brush at 100, and I like to use the Bark brush at 50. But using Bark at 100 can produce a splatter effect, which is pretty cool.

Thanks for reading, and I hope you enjoy these!
If you use them, comment here with where you used them! I always love to see what people create with my brushes. :D

Warning, start-sai.exe might not work in different versions of SAI!

Hey there! I was wondering if I could request/commission brushes from you? Or you could tell me how to make them, either way....

I've been absolutely DESPERATE for some brushes that mimic real life paint brushes, like a 1 inch, 2 inch, fan brush, etc, etc... but after a few weeks of searching I've nearly given up. So I decided to finally ask someone to make some lol.

If you could help me I'd most appreciate it!

I've come to notice that SAI only uses 50 items on each folder. It's working though..

Total Virus Scanner says the green Sai exe  may have a worm .…

i dont have a sai.exe folder :/ do i just make one? or will that not work...
Shizuru1412 Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2014
sai.exe is not a folder, it's the thing that you click to open sai.
BurntMarshmellows Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
i messed up kinda a lot on that last what i meant was that i didn't have the start-sai.exe thing
and even though u included it in the .ZIP file ,whenever i click it it comes up telling me that my trial has ended
i bought the full version idk..i mean all i wanted were some new brushes but whats the point in having them if i can save what i make...
do you by chance know how to help a poor soul out.. D:?
Shizuru1412 Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2014

Oh my gosh, I love using your brushes. I've been looking for good brushes nonstop all day, and these are just perfect for what I like to sketch. I've already downloaded one and two, and I'm excited to see what these will look like when I try them out. And I love how easy they are to install -- just copy and paste!
Thank you so much for making these! :)

Do I have to have that stupid "WinZip" thing? D:<
stopthinkmove Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
You should be able to right click on the folder and hit "extract all". Then you'll get the unzipped folder.

Winzip is for .rar files (you can use it for zipped folders too though), however I prefer 7zip cause its free and easy to use ^3^
HeartRogue Featured By Owner Dec 24, 2013
WELL it ain't working.
Thank you, though.
Are there any other ways?

raini-day Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Do you have WinRAR? It works the same as WinZip and exports files as .rar AND .zip.
HeartRogue Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2014
I cannot purchase anything.
raini-day Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
You don't have to. All you do is download the trial and when the trial is up, and when the pop-up window comes up when you open it, all you do is click cancel.
HeartRogue Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2014
It said I had to... 
stopthinkmove Featured By Owner Dec 24, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
hmm...none that I know of.
The only other thing that might work is find an online website that unzips things for you.
Good luck though
HeartRogue Featured By Owner Dec 24, 2013
Ugh.... yeah, Imma need it....
My computer is all old and crappy from 2009... yigh.
But thank you for the help anyway.
