Ink Pen Setting SAI-How to use by Temari-Chi Ink Pen Setting SAI-How to use by Temari-Chi
How to get the Ink Pen setting in The Easy Paint Tool Sai-FOR ALL WHO DON'T HAVE IT YET;

---
I wanted to share how to get the Ink Pen in Sai. Follow the image or follow the text below:

Right click on an empty tool box>Select "Pen">Rename to "Ink Pen">Follow box number 3 (Numbers are in the upper left hand corner)

Change the "smoothing" to different settings and figure out the one that works best for you. Every time you go higher up in the smooth settings, the slower and smoother you can make your lines without having it be so shaky. S-7 is good for making very smooth lines for line arts. You can slowly go over the sketch without having the lines shake.

Thank you! If you have any questions, please comment below!!

---EDIT
I'm not sure why I haven't done this before lol;; I've been lazy, but here is an FAQ;; it's a bit tiring to answer the same questions so many times OTL;;

-----FAQ-----
Q1. When I draw, there isn't a "pointy" line at the end. It doesn't look smooth like how it does for you. Why?
A1: You probably don't have your tablet driver installed. A CD should have came with your tablet when you purchased it. Install that CD onto your computer.
Q2. I don't have a place where I can put CDs into my computer/I lost the CD that came with my tablet. What should I do?
A2: Most tablet users have a Wacom. I have a Wacom as well. If you are using Wacom, go to this site to install it: us.wacom.com/en/support/driver…
If you do not own a Wacom, Google it. Try searching something like, " drivers" and look for the official company's drivers page.
Q3. I already installed it and it's still not working!
A3: Driver is out of date. Reinstall a more current version and restart your computer.
Q4. There isn't a "pen" option when I right click. Why?
A4: You have a different version than I do. Use "pencil" instead. It's the same thing, and it has the same variables in each version.
Q5. I don't have the "Smoothing" option!
A5: Once again, you probably have a different version of SAI than I do. On your version, it's probably called, "Stabilizer"
Q6. I did everything that you said, and it's still not working! Why? Also, I don't have a tablet...
A6. I'm sorry, but this tutorial is only for drawing tablets and/or drawing mouses. It should work fine if you have one of the two. I would highly recommend saving up some money for a drawing tablet if you are starting to take interest in it. You kind find them for all sorts of prices. I got my first one fairly cheaply, $80 and it worked wondrous. 

I think those were most of the frequently asked questions that I received....If you have anything else that needs to be answered, please comment! Thanks!

Check out my art as well!

Personally, I don't see much of a difference between pen and ink pen other than at 20 (my tablets lines are really thin at 9 even tough press really hard) pen is thinner and ink pen is a lot thicker.

I tried everything, tried every single setting, but nothing wanted to work like this. And then I read that I should install the driver and I tried that.
And finally it worked! Hug

The new SAI is still in beta for Windows 8 computers. I don't believe there is an official English translation of it, yet. You can probably download it off the Systemax japanese website.

Stabilizer is another name for it. You have a different version than what I have. Do you have your tablet driver installed?
