LET’S INK THIS TOWN
THIS IS SO STRANGE and I’m sorry it doesn’t seem to be working for you! I’ve been trying to load a different texture that I found into SAI as well and it just won’t work either, no matter how much troubleshooting I seem to go through. I JUST DON’T KNOW WHAT THE PROBLEM IS.
Here’s a sort of walkthrough that I use for troubleshooting when I try to load textures into SAI. Sadly, I am not a SAI wizard, so I don’t know everything about SAI just yet, but I do hope it helps you, though if it still doesn’t work then… it is a mystery… even… to mE???
1.) Make sure it’s a grayscaled .BMP (( you can check the image mode in PhotoShop and easily change it in there too ))
2.) Check the dimensions: it needs to be either 256x256 or 512x512. If you found the texture on Tumblr, it’s possible that Tumblr was a big fat doody head and resized it, bleeuuurggghhhh. >:[
3.) I’M NOT 100% SURE ON THIS ONE, but the file size seems to be important? Maybe??? Most of my textures are either 65KB or 256KB big, but the texture that I can’t get to work is only 64KB, so it SEEMS LIKE AN IMPORTANT PATTERN TO ME.
4.) Paste the texture image into the appropriate SAI folder: BrushTex if you’re wanting it to be a texture for the brush itself, and PaperTex if you plan on using it as an overall layer texture.
5.) Open up the right .CONF file. This type of file can usually be opened in WordPad or something similar. If you dropped the texture into BrushTex, open BrushTex.conf, etc.!
6.) You’ll notice that the document has tons of stuff in it already, all following the same format. I opened up the BrushTex folder, so it all has this format:
Copy the exact same format that’s already been written in the .CONF file and in the blank, type the name of the texture file EXACTLY as it is. SO FOR EXAMPLE if you have a brush texture named “Noise 01.bmp” you’d type it out as
Spaces and uppercase ARE important here, so make sure it’s right!
7.) Be sure to save the .CONF file after you’ve typed in the new texture!
8.) Now load up SAI. If you did everything right, your new texture should be in the appropriate drop-down menu, huzzah! If it isn’t, then either try again, try travelling backwards through time to save yourself the effort, or cry deeply about textures while rolling around on the floor like I do.
AND IF ALL ELSE FAILS, the Noise texture can also be downloaded from this texture pack! Phew! I should’ve just linked that in the first place, HAHA OOPS.
OH MAN I didn’t even think about this! I’d have to clean it up a bit if I did turn it into a t-shirt because that drawing’s SUPER MESSY to me, ahaha… haaaaa. I do have a Society6 as well as a RedBubble and DesignByHumans.com account lazing about, just waiting for me to do something with them, so if I do make shirts, I might make them through those! MAYBE AFTER AX IS OVER….
I’M REALLY GLAD TO HEAR THAT PEOPLE LIKE THAT DRAWING SO MUCH, it makes me so happy. ;w;
Here you go! Thank you so much for asking me personally instead of trying to make it transparent yourself, it’s just so much easier for me to do since I already have the separated file! :>
If you do use it, I’d love to see what you do with it! All I ask is that you don’t remove my signature and that you

My favorite now-reformed villain. Let chaos and chocolate milk rain down with the spirit of disharmony! Usually I only draw these pony icons as squares, but I loved it so much that I made it a bit bigger.
Feel free to use this as an icon wherever you’d like, but please don’t edit it or take the credit for yourself. Thanks and enjoy! <3
