How do i lock my settings when i set them for a brush or whatnot? Because sometimes the settings get messed up after a while if i don't use it or if i push a button on my tablet pen. Also how do i set it so that the edges are like thinner than the center that is heavier and darker, like an actual stroke not just solid all the way through? Thank you very much!!!!!!!!

Hello, if you use SAI:

1. I don't think you can lock a brush's settings. You can only change the settings back to SAI's default settings by right clicking on an empty slot on the tools' panel and choose the default tool you want. If you have some specific settings you'd like to use, I'd recommend that you either save the settings' inputs elsewhere.

2. For 'freehand' feeling of brush strokes: You have to have a tablet. Then simply adjust the settings of the brush: [Min size] and [Density] for this. This doesn't work with a mouse though.

How would i save the settings input?
ZenithOmocha's avatar
You can write the input down or take a screen shot.

I've tried setting the brush settings to yours, but for some reason they still com out as thick solid lines. Not like how yours varies in density every once in a while. Mine isn't the authentic SAI but I make do with what I can and recently I got a tablet to use, but I'm just wondering about the settings for the brush. I've set the size to a 3, Min Size = 0; Density = 100; None for both options underneath Density; Blending (yours would be color blending) = 0; Dilution(Opacity Mix) = 0; Persistence = 64 or a bite lower); and for Advanced Settings, Quality = 1; Edge Hardness = 0; Min Density = 0; Max Density = 100; Hard <-> Soft = 64; and I checked the three things at the bottom. I still don't understand why.

Please and Thank you!

If you already used my settings and it doesn't work differently from using a mouse, it's not because of the settings.
I think it's either your tablet's driver or your SAI. You may want to check them/reinstall them so that they can work.

I hope this helps.

Reinstall the tablet and SAI or just the tablet?

And thank you!
ZenithOmocha's avatar
You can try one first. If it doesn't work, then try the other. C:

Hi~! 0 u 0
I- I have a question! ´>///<`/
Why are you using the option "transp" with the wand? That is, what is the function of it? what is the difference in the selection?
I use a canvas A4 size at 300 dpi, and if I make the step of selecting and then invert the selection to create a "base", that leaves me as result a base somewhat "pixelated" ... like without "anti-aliasing"
It is understood? =///=Uu
Thank you~! Heart
