Paint Tool SAI Grass Brush Set by jincon Paint Tool SAI Grass Brush Set by jincon
It was very hard for me to draw grass in paint tool SAI (drawing one blade at a time SUCKS). I looked everywhere for a decent brush set and was disappointed each time I came across a good one, only to find it was meant for photoshop. So I decided to make my own grass brush set that would mimic those great photoshop brushes. This makes drawing grasses much more fluid and less time consuming, and it looks better too.  Experiment with "edge hardness" setting and with "blending" on and off for different results.  Download immediately. Enjoy.

I've followed the install instruction but it doesn't work. Does this require the official version? Mine is a crack version.

Hey man, these brushes are fantastic! Though I've been having trouble getting the "grass 3" to actually come up in sai along with the others. I can get the 1 and 2 and I set them up all the same, so I don't know... Any Idea what I could do?

I did as said with the box checking and etc. but the brush lines aren't sharp like your preview? It's all round tipped...=n=
jincon Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
All the sharp ones are done with regular brush tip (simple circle/ size box checked).  All I did was add a handful of regular brush strokes to fill in those odd few blades of grass that grow in another direction, kind of like when there's crabgrass growing. I do that to add some variety so everything will look more natural and less like a uniform set of brush strokes.

I added some instructions and a screenshot of my brush settings to the zip file to make things easier for everybody.  I also made another brush set --> chisel brush

i have a quick question, where can you download paint tool sai? I can't find any one site that seems very "official", and I don't want viruses. Thanks :)
KingDarkSoul Featured By Owner May 27, 2014  Student Digital Artist
I don't know where you can, but I have the full version I can send you it through skype if you want.
KarunaKitten Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Okay so after the first comment i'll explain a bit more.. I set it to 0, I did everything you suggested, and I even have a tablet. I'm still not getting the proper results.. I'm guessing it's a matter of stroke technique rather than just doing the strokes as usual, and i'm guessing you have to do a single stroke in a couple of places or more to get a better resulting product without making the WHOLE thing one stroke at a time... So technically it requires effort and consistancy, and I suggest you should just play around with it till you get the technique desired to get the results shown above in the picture. 
KarunaKitten Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Okay so.. this is supposed to turn out like you showed us on the picture. Well it's not for me, all it's doing is copying the technique of the bristle setting.. to get what you're doing i STILL have to do a smaller brush size and ONE stroke at a time... Otherwise this isn't working like you said it should. Shouldn't it just make the grass itself instead of ONE stroke at a time like you explained because i repeat, it's not, it's just another bristle-type setting for me.

Thank you so much for making this!! I downloaded it and it's so awesome!
Juliantic Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist

Hi! So I did everything as explained but I don't think it shows up? I looked in the brush shape drop down menu and there is no grass 1, grass 2, or grass 3. I just installed a different brush, same process and it works fine. I'm just really confused, help me please. Am I just looking the wrong place?

When I do everything you say, and then want to save the file brushform, it says: acces denied....
Is it my sai's fault for doing this? :S
