I don't know how to use SAI, and although I'd kill to have it, it isn't available to download on mac computers. ^^; So I can't do a tutorial for it. :)

Do you think you could possibly upload any of your brushes ;u; I have photoshop elements and it doesn't have brush options like this (well, not that i'm aware of) ;u;

I do the same with my trees! Except that I don't have Photoshop on my computer, only on my dads, and it's CS2, so it's a really old version.

thank you! I actually used to have very nice brushes on sai, but I was trying to download some more brushes and I accidently deleted my brushes (bristle and spread) and now I can only use a round brush ; _ ; because on sai there is a little area where you can change the shape of your brush

Maybe you could upload the grass, the leaf, the tear and the bush tool? Cause my programs dont have these tools and it yould be AWESOME!
By the way, the tree thing was realy unexpected XD Tried it and drawing like a 5 Year old worked XD

SAI has no grass tool, is it better for drawing than photoshop though? Yes, yes it is.

*reads* GIMP has a grass tool *is a GIMP user* it's just not as sophisticated as the Photoshop one.
