sai - default brushes and textures by Youkomi sai - default brushes and textures by Youkomi
A little pack with all my style brushes and textures for Paint Tool Sai that I had when I first installed Paint Tool SAI in my computer.
I hope this will help you :)



1 - I had a problem with the brushes! Where I supposed to put them all cause, where I put them aren´t appearing at all? No new texture or brushes showed up?
In the folder in your hard drive where all the Paint Tool SAI files are kept there are folders called “elemap”, “blotmap”, etc. The same folder names are in the pack. Just drag the files, one to one, if it need, from the corresponding folder of the pack to the one in your hard drive folder.
On windows, it may be possible that you need to be the administrator of your computer.

2 - What do you mean by corresponding folders? I tried copying and pasting but it didn't work!
In SAI program folders, you should have “botmap” “papertext” folders, just copy and past in the correct folder. If you just copy and past files without updating .CONF files, then don’t forgot to copy its name into “brushtext.CONF” or “brushform.CONF” in the SAI program folder ^^ (open those files with Notepad). After that, please, use “start-sai.EXE” to launch SAI.

3 - I don't see my Installation Folder. Help, please? Where am I supposed to be able to find it?
Your installation folder must be where you have unzipped the SAI Installation or in your hard drive. I can just advice you to do a search on your hard drive to find it.

4 - Why can't I make modifications for textures or brushes? (by ~christelaln)
This is mostly for information purpose, those who have free edition of SAI are unable to make modifications for brushes and/or textures.
According to ~ChameleonGirl-Andrea, it would work for the free version. So, see with your respective versions of SAI, but please, paid attention and take your precautions before any changes.

5 - Why this pack adds nothing new to me?
This pack contains my brushes and textures by default, so if you have a good starting SAI, this package will not help you.

6 - On Mac, I try to drag files into the already existing folders. However, when I try that, it won’t copy over. Why?
For Mac, I do not know much, because although I have a Mac, I have not installed SAI on it. If SAI is just a file with several folders (like on windows), may I ask you to check that the permissions (cmd + i) of your file and subfolders are in "read and write" mode for all users.

7 - I have SAI for mac but I don’t have any type of folder, just the “.APP”. Is there a way to fix that or...?
On mac, when you are in the application folder, you have to click on the icon of your application, then on "Display Package Contents". It allows you to view the contents of your application. After I do not know if you will have the same folders than windows version but I still hope for you :)

8 - Nothing happens when I click that pic!
All you do is click the download button at the top right of this page and you extract the files. For more explanation, read the description.

9 - How do u unzip a .ZIP file?
Normally, it depend of your OS but sometimes you will need to install an unzip software like “7-zip” or “WinRAR”. It will unzip your file in the same folder as your .RAR or .ZIP. You have plenty of free software for that. Mine on windows is “iZarc”. Totally free!

10 - I'm missing (simple circle). Where can i download that?
You can't donwload (simple circle) because it'is the default brush in SAI, so you can't missing it in your SAI instalation.
But sometime (simple circle) is called [none] in other versions of SAI.

11 - How can I add the textures only and not the default brushes please ?
To add brushes textures, you have four thing to do: first, close SAI. Then, add your "nameTexture.bmp" file in the "brushtex" folder. Think to modify the file "brushtex.conf" and add a new line : "1,brushtexnameTexture.bmp" before saving the file. To finish, restart SAI.

12 - Your file gave my laptop a virus and made it shut down? Could you check it please?
On two different laptops, I checked, analysed and unzip the file, and yet, no virus was detected. So check that you have antivirus software on you laptop! It may be something unrelated to my file.

The video tutorial and FAQ are here to help you. I can't do more than that to guide you.
And please, remember to save your files before starting any change. I will not be responsible for errors after installation.

allright ive looked throuhgt the FAQs and i dont see my problem (might have missed it) but i have the brushtex.Conf file and i do open it with notepad then open sai but i dont see how that gets me the brushes (i could be stupid in some way or another soo..)
WinterChu Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2015
theres an application that should be in your sai folder that says 'start-sai' if you put all the texures/brushes into the right folders, clicking the start sai the first time before pressing the real app could solve your problem^^
0austintheartist0 Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2015
Thank you that got them. (somehow but at least it worked)

Actually it works for me only when I'm using my sai.exe rather than yours. Thanks for the huge addon pack ^_^
Joyeuu Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2015
Discarbia made sure I thank the owner or provider of the brushes and textures she used for her ink pen. I've really enjoyed using these since it gives me more options. First time doing digital art so I'm quite excited. Thank you for sharing this with us all who wish to express our creative side :)

I can't find the start-sai.EXE file
Aquilonn Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2015
start-sai.exe file can be found in your sai program folder. If you usually open sai with an icon on your desktop or taskbar, rightclick and select "open file location". This should take you to that folder. Search "start-sai" and it should turn up.

Did this change any of the original brushes?
BlushingEevee Featured By Owner Edited Apr 17, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I tried doing this and it gave me an error called "Error 740" D: What did I do wrong? ;-; I really wanted these brushes and I bought the full version.. 

Nevermind with a bit of research I solved the problem xD

If anyone else has this error, just right click on the "start" button and choose "Run as Administrator".
