How do you get SAI without the trial day and downloading some silly tool bar thingy and getting un unwanted homepage (Like Google)? It's annoying me quite alot >:3

I don't quite understood the homepage thing, but if you want SAI at its full capacity, you have to buy it. //or you can torrent that shit lol

Well, in "others"...
I look this useful but only because the shortcuts xDDD
Just like, you press "N" and it will appear the pen tool and you can make shortcuts of the color wheel and a lot more of that xDD

Sai is just about the only program I DONT have D: I have corel, photoshop, and a few knock-off art things. Do you know any tutorials like this one for programs like that?

sSeyrAa Featured By Owner May 6, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Sadly, I only own SAI and GIMP.
I hope you'll find tutorial for the programs you own! c:

How do you move colors to your pallet swatches?

sSeyrAa Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Just pick whatever colour you want to put on the pallete, right-click on one free spot and then click 'Set'. c:

Aha, thanks xD.
You can also draw in SAI without tablet. The only thing that you'd miss is the pressure sensitivity (<3). But I know some peoples who can do magic with a mouse ♥

I cant draw with a mouse as I tend to suffer from recurring bouts of RSI when doing something straining with a mouse :3
And I rely heavily on pressure sensitivity xD

But's it's nice you made the tutorial, been looking for a very basic turotial for SAI the last month; Just kinda bad karma from my side that my tablet had to break not long before you posted it *facepalm*

Yus, bow down before the awesome "Pressure Sensivity" god of art xD
Hoping to maybe get a new tablet next month for my birthday :3

Btw, which kind of tablet do you use? ^_^

Yup, looked at those, but is currently in school so havent had time for close reading them.

Uh, my tablet is so old that I'm surprised it still works xD. I use a Bamboo One <3 [link]
I got mine as a Christmas present, 3 or 4 years ago. I can't really recall when, but it's been a long time since that, and my Bamby is still in shape ;D

Holy... well not crap, but darn O.o
Mine would probably have lived the next 3 years too if the pen didnt keep rolling off the table :C
... and a new pen costs as much as a new tablet -.-;

But stil awesome, gotta give Wacom that they make products that lasts :D

:iconsseyraa:
sSeyrAa Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Haha, then buy a new one o-o

Yup, and I hope it will last even more, because I don't think my mom will be willing to buy me a new tablet if this one won't work anymore x.o

I'm sure this will be very helpful to beginners, I can't wait to see the next one. :D

For upcoming lessons, I recommend you put lots of shortcuts in for people, they're all really helpful.
Personally, I use these a lot:
ctrl e = merge layer down
ctrl z = undo(very basic, but some people might not know.)
ctrl y = redo
ctrl d = deselect
[ = make brush size smaller
] = make brush size bigger
tab = hide layer and tool panels
x = toggle secondary color and primary color

Thank you!

An upcoming lesson is about shortcuts, don't worry! I find these useful as well, so that's why I had to make a lesson about that!

Is Paint Tool SAI the free thing that comes from a sketchy-looking website that says "Paint Tool SAI in English," or is this a purchased program? I've looked for it on amazon, but no luck :/
Reply
:iconsseyraa:
sSeyrAa Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
The sketchy-looking site is an site made for the fan-made version of SAI, in English, hence the name 'Paint Tool SAI in English'.
However, SAI is not free, sadly. This [link] is the official 'site' of SAI, and there you can purchase it. It's around 60 bucks.
