SAI Tutorial: Using Textures by eccentricminded SAI Tutorial: Using Textures by eccentricminded
How to apply textures in Paint Tool SAI

It's my first time to make a tutorial, sorry for my bad english. This is more of a tutorial how I do it so sorry in advance if some of the techniques seem ineffective for you.


Here are my texture packs:
Ornate Patterns (lace, damask, etc) [link]

Here's another way to apply textures in SAI, which is easier in my opinion: [link]

I can't get it to work in Sai. I've downloaded other textures/brushes, put them in the folder and they work perfectly, but these won't... and I'd really love to use them on the wedding dress I'm currently working on...

I have a question.

I can't seem to open the files properly.

I'm using windows eight and it only seems to offer ABR files. So I don't open zip files even though I downloaded zip files. They always end up as ABR files...

What do I do? ;m;

If you haven`t changed it, it should be "start-sai.exe."
And besides, the instructions that came with textures even said so.. <___>

The textures don't show up for me when I want to choose one. I put them in the brushtex and papertex folders and they wont show up in sai. Anyway to fix this?

What textures? If they are pre-made for SAI, check the size of the .bmp files or if they are in grayscale mode. Tell me where you downloaded them, I think I can help you somehow.

I have a question. On my Sai folder it doesn't have the green arrow shortcut. And no matter how many times I try to re-install the program it doesn't show up. Is there another way around making brush textures without it?

yes, but you have to do it manually. here's a tutorial on how to do it: [link] good luck!

when I put it in the blotmap folder, I get nothing in SAI.
when I put it in the papertex folder, I get nothing in SAI too.

what am I doing wrong?
I putted a .BMP in both folders...
Reply
:iconeccentricminded:
eccentricminded Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
after placing the .bmp files, did you click the START button (green box with arrow) to start SAI? because if you use the original icon for SAI, it won't update the setting for your SAI.
