Paint Tool SAI Pencil Brushes by BerolEagle Paint Tool SAI Pencil Brushes by BerolEagle
Here are a couple of pencil brushes that I made for Paint Tool SAI in order to mimic graphite pencil, to install them follow these instructions*:

-Extract the RAR into your Paint Tool SAI folder (install 7zip if you don't have winRAR).

-Run start-sai.exe to install the textures.

-Create a new "Brush" and manually adjust the settings like you see here, you could also use the Marker, Watercolor, Airbrush ...

I recommend using these brushes on A4 page size at 150 DPI and with stroke stabilizer at level 3 but use whatever you feel comfortable with.

Feel free to adjust the pressure to your taste, some press harder than others so you may have to adjust.

Change the Simple Circle to Flat and now you have a square tip shading pencil.

(*) Update if you're having issues with the start-sai.exe, download this pack and extract it into your main SAI directory (where the SAI program is), the brushes should show up automatically next time you run SAI), they may overwrite your brush list but I've put them at the bottom so unless you have any brushes there, it shouldn't be any problem. As an extra, I've included a set of "Airbrush Pencils" which are my favorite brushes in SAI.

What color do you use to sketch in? I can't seem to find that sweetspot that mimics the sketches you have here which I find is a really good reproduction of pencil

I think I used a dark gray, not pure black.

I just fell in love with my tablet all over again with these brushes! :D Thank you so much! I just have one question though :).. For some reason the settings for blending, dilution, and persistence won't appear for me. Even without those options for the 2MM pencil  it's amazing, but i was hoping someone would know how to get those settings to appear? :D please and thank you!

You have to create a brush or watercolor brush, the pencil brush doesn't have those settings. I like to use a little bit of blending just to smooth out the shading.

Gimp brushes are .gbr and Photoshop brushes .abr. If I want to create some custom brushes for SAI and share them in the web, what kind of file format do I have to use?
