Here is the first tutorial in a set of Paint Tool SAI tutorials that I am making. I thought that a settings tutorial would be the best to post first, as I will refer to this tutorial in future tutorials.

I hope I explained everything well. Please let me know if you have any suggestions.

For more Paint Tool SAI tutorials, visit my tutorial website saitutorials.com!

WOW! Thank you so much for the daily deviation!!! It is quite an honor! Thank you!!! :)

nice tutorial. very good
I used to draw with paint tool sai but I changed to Mac later and I could not find paint tool sai Mac version. Now  I used  paint tool sai on win and  a good tool Alternative to Paint tool for Mac  named MyBrushes to draw.

This is one of the easiest to understand, yet comprehensive Paint Tool Sai tutorials I've ever seen. I've been using Sai for a while, and learned something new just in the first couple of pages, LOL. Thanks SO much. I could watch PTSai flash tutorials like this all day.

Do you ever plan on creating some more advanced tutorials on how settings can be used/adjusted to create custom brushes and how the different brushes work? ^_^

You can get the trail version/pay for it here: painttool-sai.en.softonic.com/
Or you can download the crack version here (which I used): www.mediafire.com/download/uik…

the advanced settings aren't exactly working for me. The brush strokes are bulky and don't end with a smooth thin result. I've tried all the settings but nothing is happening. Can someone help?

Maybe you should try this ?
I had some drivers issue with my tablet before and I do something similar and everything work now.
Try to uninstall and reinstall SAI after doing that but if you have custom brushes, save their settings before doing this !

well, you technically need a license for it (www.systemax.jp/en/sai/) although you can try it out with the trial verson for a month

You need to recalibrate your  pen, then it should work.

Thank you sooo much! I am relatively new to SAI and digital art in general and this was much more helpful than just playing around with the settings myself. Definitely bookmarking your website for later reference! :la:
