SAI Brushes 2 by ToadsDontExist SAI Brushes 2 by ToadsDontExist
Woo, it's been a while, hasn't it. My deepest apologies to any who've had problems with my previous brush packs...I'm not really sure how to fix most of them, other than the people I've responded to already. These packs are as much me experimenting with SAI as they are a resource for you :P

With that said, I'm pleased to say that I finally got off my lazy ass finished a second brush pack!! This one is more experimental than the previous one; that said, there are a lot of "version 2" brush textures in here.

Installation Instructions
1. Download and unzip the set
2. Copy all the BMP images (other than the preview :P)
3. Paste them in your Blotmaps folder in the SAI folder
4. Copy start-sai.exe (if you don't have it already)
5. Paste it in the same folder as sai.exe (one level up from the blotmaps folder)
6. Run start-sai.exe
7. The new brushes can be used by selecting them from the menu underneath "Density," where it says "Simple Circle" by default.

More detailed instructions can be found in the Read Me, PLEASE read that before asking me! :D

Important Note
See that little number right next to the brush drop down menu? Play around with that. Different brushes work better under different settings. For example, I like to use the Script brush at 100, and I like to use the Bark brush at 50. But using Bark at 100 can produce a splatter effect, which is pretty cool.

Thanks for reading, and I hope you enjoy these!
If you use them, comment here with where you used them! I always love to see what people create with my brushes. :D

The Ripple in this pack is broken. There should be a working version in SAI Brushes 3 :)

Warning, start-sai.exe might not work in older versions of SAI!

Thankfully, in Sai2, you don't have to edit all the txt. files! You just paste the images into the proper folder and they'll show up instantly! ^^

The only thing that was wrong was the start-sai.exe that it came with but I opened it with the original and everything worked!! This is the first time a new brush pack worked for me. Thank you so much! This is great! <3

i can't get the brushes to work :( i put them into the right folders and start SAI and the brushes don't show up
AdvanceRun Featured By Owner Edited Sep 23, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
check out my sai gallery. i put some of my brushes in there with simply easy to follow instructions . there could be a few reasons why a brush wont show. Either the original images this person shared are not the correct dimensions, and they didn't double check that before sharing. Or the names are different within the conf ;or whatever file ;  from what which the images are named. So they have to match spaces and all.   

Or you  placed them  in the wrong folder. Or, your not looking in the right menu for them. etc. Ill help out if you still need it.
