can you help me? i try to use one of your textures /post/50217239646 but it doesn't work, i checked if it was just sai by trying a different texture from someone else and it works fine so idk why my sai won't recognize your texture, do you know what the problem is?
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.
Do you have a t-shirt store or plan on trying to get one? I'd absolutely love to wear around your Inkling picture on a shirt.
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;
I have super good news for those interested in getting more of my charms, and it’s that I’ll be restocking them very soon AND there will be a bunch of new designs too! What will they be? Well, here’s a little sneak-peek… :D
Here's a little bird hoping you have a wonderful day! <3
Thank you so much little birdy, I really needed this. It’s hard to admit, but I’d be lying if I said that I’ve been totally fine lately. Sometimes it’s hard to remember that things will be okay, but you’ve helped to remind me that today is a new day, and it has the potential to be a wonderful day.
Good news for those who have been waiting to get these two Legendary charms together, Xerneas and Yveltal are back! Supplies are very VERY limited this time around though, so catch them while you still can!
And even more good news! I’ll be restocking even MORE X&Y charms ~soon~ for those that missed out or simply wanted more. AND on top of that, I’m working on some brand new charm designs too. What are they going to be of? You’ll just have to wait and find out or scour my Twitter for hints!
Thank you so much to everyone for their support, and for making this all possible. I hope you’re just as excited as I am for more future CrayonChewer Shop merchandise!
Your store says that the Yveltal charms are out of stock, is that true? T~T
Yes and no! I actually DO have more Yveltal charms—as well as Xerneas—BUT I’m missing the lariats and rings needed to fully complete the remaining charms. I’ve already ordered the missing components necessary to build them and when I get them, I will update my shop with more Yveltals (( as well as make a post about it )).
I honestly didn’t realize that Yveltal would sell out so quickly! But there’s still hope for those that want it! :>
I JUST REALIZED THAT MY ART BLOG HAS BEEN QUEUEING POSTS FROM MY PERSONAL BLOG FOR THE PAST FEW DAYS, AHHH I AM SO EMBARRASSED. I’m just really glad that it was only a couple of posts and it was a least a reblob featuring another really cute Tumblr artist, phew!
