2014 Brushes + TumblrHey everyone!2014 Brushes + Tumblr11 months ago in Personal More Like This
So, many times people ask me about what brushes I use and what not... I have a link for my brushes on my profile but I don't use that set anymore, so I just wanted to share the brush-set I've been using lately with you
You can download it here:
BRUSHES, FUCK YEAH!
The last 5 brushes or so are the ones I use the most ( like 95% of the time ).
It is much simpler than my previous set as I'm trying to "free" my "workspace" as much as possible. It still has some brushes that are universally in everyone's brush-set nowadays, so honestly I'm not sure who to credit anymore since they've been around for so long, but they probably come from Jaime Jones, Leventep, Kekai, M@ etc...
Just remember that brushes are just another tool and won't make your work better or worse automatically. Just use the ones you like the most and stick with that

Below in red is where to find the line art layer. Click it to create a new line art or Vector Layer.
On the new line art layer, click four points in a rought squared egg shape like below in the large red square. Use the curve tool to make this shape. The curve tool is marked in a little red box to the left of the image below.
Now select the edit tool. Then from the middle of each point, click and hold then drag outwards to create a new point and deform your shape into a rough circle. You may need to change between your edit options to edit the shape. Translate should be fine to do most of the shaping.
Then you can use the curve tool to ad the speech bubble tail. That's all there is to making speech bubbles in sai. Of course you can draw

Textured brush vs. texture
First of all, what is a textured brush? And why should you bother with it when you can just slap a nice texture over your painting to make it look more interesting?
Alright, let's start at the beginning. "Textured brush" is a brush created out of a texture, so basically a texture in brush-form. Whether it's made with help of a pre-existing image (see texture above) or some wild scribbling on your tablet (like the example brush above) doesn't matter. Texture + select + define brush = texture

How To Make Photoshop Painting BrushesA guide to making smooth painting brushes and painting effects using your own custom made brushes and smudge tool.How To Make Photoshop Painting Brushes2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
First open the Brush panel/Brush editor. If you don't know, it's the icon that looks like paint and pens in a container or go to window and enable brush.
When it's open either turn on or off shape dinamics. This makes the ends pressure sensitive from thin to thick. I like to toggle it on and off when I paint or make double brushes, one with and one with out and save it to my collection. Then turn spacing all the way to zero. You'll notice that the brush goes from spotty messy to super smooth. This is also what you can do to make a flawlessly smooth inking brush in photoshop.
Tick Transfer, this will make it very sensitve opacity wise. Kind of like paint tool SAI's marker tool. With the spacing set to zero you can really see how smooth it is now. But if you like the spacing how it is then of course leave it how it is on default. With smoo
