Scale Texture for Paint Tool SAI

[These are for Paint Tool SAI, Paint Tool SAI 2]

I was trying to find a scale texture to use in some of my dragon artwork, but I didn't really find anything freely available that I liked, OR that repeated.  So I made some!
I thought I would share them with you all in case you are looking for a new texture to add to your arsenal!
NOTE: Also to anyone who owns PTS, please check out Paint Tool SAI 2.  It's a free technical preview to everyone and full access to anyone who owns the original, and this texture works much better on it, plus there is a built in scale slider for textures!

Enjoy!

Here is a demo:

Such wonderful brushes! gah, though for some reason my sai2 does not want to get rid of the initial brush stroke, so it just looks like I'm drawing a line with some scales haphazardly attached. Seems that my version is also different from the version used in the screenshot for reference, so I'm at a loss here ;v;

Heyo! I've found these brushes take some fiddling with the settings to look good.

Here's some of the brush setting I have that might help you. : )

Make sure your messiness on the brush texture is high!

These brushes look awesome but every time I try to download it deviantart says the page doesn't exist. Is the link broken by any chance? :(

omg this is an amazing brush!!! And honestly, it's just what I've been looking for. Would you be any chance be willing to also make it for Photoshop please? I've never used Paint Tool Sai, and it looks like an awesome program, but I've heard you can't get it anymore.


Would it be too much trouble? Please please don't feel obligated. But I've looked everywhere for a brush similar to this one and cannot find anything like it.


Thank you!
