I found this way of making the ink pen myself, but that was after searching for a long time.
It was really hard to find, so to make it more easy for you guys i made this :)

NOTICE: not all versons of sai have Pen tool, you can use the pencil tool for the same effect

!! If you want all the starting brush textures and textures you can download them here : www.deviantart.com/art/sai-def…
(follow her description and pleace thank her as well :) )

IF YOU HAVE A TABLET it can be that the lines get really small then you have to go go and make your pen pressure different intil you like it :heart:

fav if it works :D and send me links to your art when you used it ! :heart:

Hey, do you still have the problem? If you do then here is the most common pack that many people use :)
Also in the desc. there is a link to the original place where you can find the texture.

Middle-right on the top. "Stabilizer". 0 being no stablizer and S-7 being extreme. I usually only use the 10 setting, but go up to S-2 when I have to make a really straight line. Linework layers are also great. The "Pen" tool in a linework layer is great - regular pen tool, but you can reposition and change the line as you wish afterwards.

Is legacy pen the same thing as pen?

I don't think so, haven't heard of it to be honest. Do you have a new verson of SAI? And how does the legacy pen act?

I don't have the new version of SAI yet (im assuming you mean version 2) Legacy pen is like pencil in ms paint pretty much act the same way

Legacy pen is the binary pen. You use it to make pixel icons. I'd suggest not going over 1px in size when using it, as that would get you the thinnest line and make it look the best.
