Screentone Pattern_Sai by kingzu Screentone Pattern_Sai by kingzu

Longtime no updates :D! ah... I've made some pixel brushes!! 

I mostly just use gray tones, but sometimes I really miss screen tone like quality when doin' uh, comic art?! I have made both Photoshop and SaiTool versions, so I decided to share~I'll try to update if I make more screen tone-like brushes or shapes.

Instructions on how to install is included in the zip file.


Sorry I wasn't too clear on instruction :o:!

How can I open brushtex.cof in notepad?

In order to open up the brushtex.conf, you must right click the file and go to property.
Change the open with to notepad, and once you click OK you'll be able to open it just fine
OR You can just open up a notepad and file/ open/change the open setting from Text file to All files and double-click brushtex.conf to open

If I pass over a spot multiple times, I get these muddy look. How can I fix it?

Try adjusting density level to about 50-60, It will help out!

I've followed the instruction and it still won't work!

The instruction that I wrote is actually an old-school way, since you are fiddling with the conf file itself. If you have problem saving conf file, it might be that computer isn't recognizing you as an administrator. Try following instruction Here. There is a program that sets everything for you instead of having to change/save conf file yourself. Don't forget say "Thank you" to the person I linked to :)

Can these be used Commercially?

Yes these can be used commercially. Both SaiTool and Photoshop Versions. I just made them for myself and for fun, feel free to use however you want!

------- Please Read if you downloaded the file before (November/ 14/ 2013) ------------------------------

So over the past week I've received tones of request on re-making the pixel brush for SAITool, since good portion of the patterns weren't as clean as the others. I've went ahead and tried to re-build the patterns, however, due  to SaiTool only supporting 512px by 512px images, the patterns could only be the factor of 2 (I don't know if I make Sense...) 
So... basically, I just took out the bad apples, and reorganized/renamed the brushes. 

If you have already installed them and too lazy to reinstall, just erase


from brushtex.conf file.

hello, thank you for sharing.. 
i want to ask, do you know how to add it to SAI 2 ? 
Kaylia01 Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2017
If you duplicate the Linepen tool and use these textures, the muddy look will go away. :) It works at any density, too.
YumiAm3 Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
nvm I figured out how to take off that gray stuff
YumiAm3 Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
how do you duplicate it?
MenmaRiceball Featured By Owner Edited Mar 16, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
could someone please help? the names all show up in SAI but when I select them, there's no texture?? it's really weird and I can't figure out the issue..

edit: it's the same thing that beabu complained about on the previous page.
podgiie Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
im having the same problem! did you ever fix this?
MenmaRiceball Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
kind of ? i realized that i needed to make the canvas smaller in order to actually see the pattern.. still kind of hard to see but i haven't found a better solution.
Silent--Sinner Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
Can someone please help me with this?
So, I pasted the image files for the testures into the brushtex folder (for images, not .conf)
Then I pasted the things on the notepad onto the conf. file, but then it says "Access is denied"
Am I doing something wrong?
8-gatsu Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
have you solved this? I think it's because of admin issue or something
Silent--Sinner Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
No -_-
OppaiMagpie Featured By Owner May 18, 2017   Digital Artist
Typically it's a permissions issue.

If you're an administrator on your computer you can right click the file and go to Properties.
From there click on the Security tab, you should be able to see a permissions list that has modify, read & execute, ect. If there's not a check by modify, that's the issue. Just click on the edit button, allow modify and apply.
This is for Windows 7, I don't know if that same process will allow on Window 8 and on but I'm sure a quick search will solve that.

I hope this helps.

A question. Can u tell me how i can line my finish work with another color? I see so many artworks and i asked everyone but noone wants to tell me. Is there a tool i can use that i can do blue lines after finished my character
Rentham Featured By Owner Edited Dec 6, 2016   Digital Artist
If you mean how to recolor your lineart- just above the layers, there's an option called "preserve opacity". Go to the lineart layer and click on that option. Then you can paint ONLY over the parts that are already "painted" in that layer. :)
NarutoByAri Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2016  Student Digital Artist
Oh okay and there is no way i can create new lines just with a tool?
Rentham Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2016   Digital Artist
Um... yes? Just using the pen or brush like you did with the original lines? I'm not sure if I understood what you meant, though.
