Excuse me,may I ask what program are you using?I'm completely lost plus i kinda like your FF XIII-2 picture.
JovanaLanik Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
the name of the program is literally in the title; paint tool SAI

I don't know if a solution has already been posted for those who are missing the "Fine_Flat" brush setting, but I got mine from this website:…

If the URL does not show up or work, simply search "paint tool sai fine flat elemap brush"
It will be the webpage titled "30 thoughts on “PaintTool SAI Brushes and Textures”"

The brush is under the "elemap" section and there are instructions on the website on how to properly install it, if you need help.

Hope this works for ya and God bless :D

As a very big fan of your style, I must say that I LOVE this x3

Thanks for sharing!

Although I don't know if to try it or not... I mean, I would actually feel bad about trying to do something just like other artists' style >.< Can't decide wether to try this or not :/

Thank you sooo much!
I couldn't find the Fine_Flat one :(
But the Flat_Bristle is close enough. Any alternatives?
HarunaAki Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
you had to download the brushes, and install it to your program files :/ 
Kasanii Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2014  Student Digital Artist

omg u r awsome!
Oedipusfoot Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2013
Your brush is a work of art...!

I just downloaded the full version of Sai. I had been using the Trial version. In the Trial version I had Fine_Flat and a bunch more, but now I only have four, Spread, Spread&Bristle, Noise, and a Bristle one. I can't figure out why I don't have any...I wanted to use your brush but I can't use the Fine_Flat preset.

Sorry if this is really obvious x_x... I am new to digital art ;-; ...
Rueby Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hmmm it kinda inspired me to draw this. It's not exactly the same brush I think but oh well. . . .

Have a nice day <3
NemesisHawk Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I'm using the same thing but for me it's on the water color not the brush that make's it look like this 
ATEL1ER Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2013  Student General Artist
Ehhh, I have a question. In my version of sai it only have the simple_circle, nothing such as fine_flat or anything like that, though it once did. Do you know how to download that again?
p-shdw Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist

Thank you.
Jessibee123 Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
when i click the dropdowns for the textures the only things that appear are 'simple circle' and in the next dropdown 'no textures' and 'paper textures'
i've checked my sai files and all the textures and stuff are there they just don't show up when i open sai!
GlassesBlu Featured By Owner May 26, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That's the Japanese version I suppose.
The Japanese and the American have different base brushes I suppose
Jessibee123 Featured By Owner May 28, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
i actually figured out the problem, it seems that i mustve been opening sai from the wrong place because i opened it from a different folder and i got all the textures i was missing! :3
GlassesBlu Featured By Owner May 28, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Good for you then! :D
