Basic Sky Tutorial by Capri-of-the-North Basic Sky Tutorial by Capri-of-the-North
(( Yep, the basics of how I do my skies. I know I add other things such as galaxies or night clouds (as seen in that one Westman picture). But I didn't know which one to do. ;; That explains why the end result in this tutorial isn't as....extreme...or...good as the other skies I've drawn.

Hope this helps or sheds some light! I tried to be as detailed as possible.

Send regards to my friend Fwee :la: as she gave me those brushes for Sai. I've provided the link below for it in case anyone wants it.

Brushes download: [link]

How to install brushes to Sai

1. After downloading the brushes, open up the file. (I use Winrar, so I don't know how this works with other programs).

2. And open up your Paint Tool Sai folder as well. Click on brushtex (it should be the first one).

3. Select all the brushes and copy and paste them to the respective folders in your Paint Tool Sai folder.
(Inside your Paint Tool Sai folder, you should see other folders with the names such as "blotmap", "brushtex", "elemap", "papertex".
Place what you're copying into the right areas. So brushtex things will go into the brushtex folder, elemap into the elemap folder, and so on.)

4. Start up Sai and check your new brush and canvas textures o3o.

how can I do it on Windows 7? I copy and paste it in the folders, but it doesn't work.
If I'm not able to do it, can I ask someone to help me? Anyone of here? I'll much appreciate it.

Ok, I figured out that there's something to take in note:
First: There's a pirate version of SAI that you can download. However, you can't use custom brushes in that. You have to buy the programm legit, download it from the original page that made it. Or else, it won't work.
Second: Brushtex might look the place you have to put it, but it doesn't work. Once I figure out the issue, I'll explain it here.

Mind if I don so?
