Why aren't you using SAI2 anon? I've since switched to it 3-4 years ago.

There's like cracks for it out there already. If you don't want to, you could buy a license for SAI1 and use it for SAI2.

If you use Sai just switch to CSP

>> No.4315408

I went from sai to krita and I am using krita more now. I do technically like sai more, the pressures are better, more ergonomic, and a much light program, and runs smoother, but the lack of support for it makes me iffy. I also spent the $10 to own it/support it.

>> No.4315438

Sai is only good for sketching very fast with no lag the brushes are terrible photoshop is the best art app but it has fucking windows ink pressure sensitivity issues

Medibang/Fire Alpaca is pretty much the best "Sai-like" alternative if you're looking for something with a similar interface and lightweightness. Nothing will be as lightweight as Sai though. Probably the only program were you can draw in 5k resolution on a pentium 4.

Procreate is literally the best art software that exists right now and the ipad pro (both 11 and 13 inch) are the best art devices. The only reason not to buy it is price and you are poor.

>Do people actually use Medibang?

The two videos I posted have artists that posts speedpaints in medibang. Also Medibang has a gallery website where artists upload stuff they made on the program


>What are its strengths?

The best Sai alternative on linux is azpainter. Too bad they still haven't compiled it to run on windows yet.

Honestly I don't see a super big difference between the performance of Krita on Windows and Linux. Complicated color smudge brushes probably perform a bit better on linux. I think you should make sure to use the angle render engine.

I use a Ryzen 1600 and usually start painting on 4000x4000 resolution. Painting on Krita feels smoother compared to CSP to me.

Isn`t the creator of SAI working on CSP?

CSP is a shitty single threaded app and performance is fucking atrocious.
Also screen tearing everywhere.

I do.
Honestly I grown to love it. It felt a bit different/off when i switched to it but now its my favorite.

Has something happened? I tried it out a year or so ago and it was dragging ass all the time

>> No.4317059

Why people shit on CSP?

>> No.4317079

it's focused on line-work, no really painting.
that said it's not like it's bad for painting anymore, plus it's still arguably the best for line-work.
I guess people see the stabilization option as a crutch? It is a crutch but it's not like you need to use it. People forget that it's meant to simulate the texture/friction of a brush on paper or something, but generally just putting paper on your tablet does the same thing.

switched to csp for 3 years and ive been good so far. photoshop is a meme but cc is alright now, it's just not worth the subscription
a friend of mine uses medibang which is free and it's very sai like, so you could try it

are brushes between sai and sai 2 exactly the same? the only reason to bother with sai at all is custom brushes. im too retarded to replicate them all in csp
