Like photoshops bucket tool pattern or just want a pattern brush. Use this method to get that effect. I'm going to use a screentone texture that is inverted.

  • Go to your paint tool sai Folder
  • Open Brushtex folder Snap 2012-11-03 at 11.03.47 by DraconianRain

  • Open a bmp image in photoshop or sai Snap 2012-11-03 at 11.04.44 by DraconianRain

  • decorate it in greyscale. You can see my texture above, it's was done in photoshop as render difference clouds. Rename the file to something you will remember. I called mine Lightening because when it's used it looks a bit like lightening or coffee stains.
  • open the CONF file called Brushtex. Open it in Notepad. It will look something like this>> Snap 2012-11-03 at 11.07.39 by DraconianRain
    Snap 2012-11-03 at 11.08.43 by DraconianRain

  • write this: 1,brushtex\[the name of your bmp file].bmp Make sure on the end up the image file name. Exactly like in the image above. Mine was lightening so I wrong it: 1,brushtex\lightening.bmp and after you write this, close and save, don't save as just save. This tells sai where you put your texture and where sai can find it. Now you can open sai. If you had it open before, close and re-open.
  • Open sai
  • Go here to find your texture>> Snap 2012-11-03 at 11.13.10 by DraconianRain

  • There's the texture ready for use, test it Snap 2012-11-03 at 11.13.58 by DraconianRain

  • Done, it will always be there now.
  • If you decide to get rid of it or stop using it for a while, go to the brushtex file and delete the command line you put in there and it won't show up in sai.
Enjoy <3
