Do you take art trades or collabs or requests?

My normal brush looks like a watercolor brush and I don't know how to fix it to just be a regular hard brush like my old sai. Can someone help me?

That's weird, I can't open the 2nd file in #4 because it says it violates the T&C of Google Drive. Help :(

I agree with :iconotkurzacz: and :iconnazegoreng: when saying this is the best tutorial I've seen for creating a watercolor effect on SAI. I'm still not use to SAI so I've never experimented with the watercolor aspect, this explains and shows a great deal of what to expect and experiment with when working this method. I use watercolors to a certain extent but I might prefer this over the real thing to be honest.

Great tutorial you have here :iconbluekomadori:!
