PLEASE DO NOT INCLUDE THESE BRUSHES IN “MASTER POSTS”
Trust me if you weren’t here for The Brushnger Games 2013, I tried like 50 different pencil brushes and this was the best.
ATTENTION: If you have an autoplay, if you post any triggering/NSFW content, if you are going on hiatus, or simply need to alert your followers of something, this post is for you.
A lot of people are triggered by sudden noises that they have no idea were coming, or just plain out not being ready for a sound or music. I’ve found a code for your tumblr that you can set to display your own message. I think it’d be really helpful if you have followers afraid of things that will suddenly startle them. You can find the code here. You can also use this for your own alert. Ex: “I am on hiatus!” “This blog contains ____.” This is good for many triggers. Simply copy and paste the code below your <head> and insert your own message into ‘YOUR MESSAGE HERE’. This has been a PSA. Please reblog this so people will know how to make their tumblrs a little safer. It’s not a must, but it’s a nice addition to help your followers feel safer on your blog.
I’ve been getting a lot of asks lately about the brushes and textures I use in my work, so here’s a BIG FAT REFERENCE POST for those of you who were curious! Bear in mind that I’m really lazy and don’t know what half the settings do, so don’t be afraid to experiment to figure out what works best for you :>
I use the pencil tool with SAI’s native paper texture both for sketching and for applying opaque color with no blending. Lower opacities give it the feel of different pencil hardnesses, while full opacity makes it more like a palette knife, laying down hard-edged, heavy color for detail work or eventual blending with other brushes.
Mostly made this because I’m lazy and I didn’t want to have to keep turning my textures off/opacity up when I wanted to ink something (even though I don’t do it very often), or lay down flat colors. I find the line quality to be much more crisp than Photoshop, and you can manually adjust in-program stabilization to help smooth out hand wobbles.
The plain ol’ brush tool acts as sort of an in-between for me in terms of brush flow. It’s heavier than my usual workhorse brush, for faster color application and rough blending, but not as heavy as the pencil tool, which has no blending at all. I like to use the canvas texture on this brush to help break up the unnatural smoothness that usually accompanies digital brushes, but it works just fine without.
A brush tool set to flat bristle is by far my favorite to paint with. I don’t use any textures with it because I think the shape of the brush provides enough of that by itself. I use it for everything from rough washes to more refined shaping and polish. It’s just GREAT.
Best used for smooth blending, washes, gradients, and smoky atmospheric effects.
Basically a grittier version of the watercolor tool, because too much smoothness weird me out. Good for clouds and fog, as the name suggests, or just less boring gradient fills.
To further stave off the artificially smooth look of digital painting, I almost always overlay some sort of paper texture, and it’s almost always this one, which I scanned and edited myself. You’re all welcome to use it, no permission required!
Using overlays in SAI is just as easy as using them in Photoshop. Just paste the texture into its own layer above everything you want it to apply to, and change the layer mode to Overlay. That’s it!
Want a more prominent texture? Up the contrast. Something more subtle? Lower the contrast or reduce the layer opacity. You can also use a tinted overlay to adjust the overall palette and bring a little more color unity to an otherwise disparate piece! Just be aware that too much texture can hurt the readability of the work beneath it, so I’d err on the side of subtlety.
Hope that helps!

BLOODY MARY CHARACTER PSD
I was going to use this on a roleplay, but is not gonna happen, so… hello, I do not have idea what is this, but here we go…This is a simply character psd, actually, all you have to do is replace the background picture, really simple right. Also, if you wanna on the firth picture you can put the age of the character, the face clain, and stuff.
Plus, you can change the color, red, blue, or green. I use CODE LIGHT font, and i think that is the better font to use.
Please, like/reblog if you use. Thank you so much.
