PaintTool SAI For Mac OS X [Now For 10.9 - 10.10] by pelsky PaintTool SAI For Mac OS X [Now For 10.9 - 10.10] by pelsky
UPDATE/EDIT ON 1/8/2012 :
WARNING ; The previous Port will NOT WORK On the new Mac OS X Mountain Lion 10.8 , i tested it on Mountain Lion and its not working .. and i will work on a fix for it soon .. and as soon as it fixed .. i will link it here :)

UPDATE/EDIT ON 21/8/2012:
Finally found a way to port SAI to make it work on OS X Mountain lion , and the Update link is above! (its The same app but made for ML , literally not an Update)

UPDATE/EDIT ON 1/11/2012:
I recently found out that the links arent working (blocked or something.) so i just updated them so you can download the port :)

UPDATE/EDIT ON 12/12/2012:
Sorry for the broken links :c , All The links will be updated very shortly to MediaFire, PotLoad Or to my Dropbox.

UPDATE/EDIT ON 24/6/2014:
Hey guys!, I'm very happy to see that we're about to cross 100k views for the PaintTool SAI port! Which is amazing!
For people who are having issues with the port, the app won't open because the application is not compatible with OS X 10.9 yet, and i don't have the ability to update it because i don't own a mac anymore (since i broke my own Macbook pro 2 years ago), but i will try to see if i can update the application very soon if i could borrow a mac or something, the updating process doesn't take time but i only need a mac to do the update.

I'm very sorry for not doing updates for a very long time but it doesn't mean that i'll ditch the updates! I'll be making some very soon.

★UPDATE/EDIT ON 11/1/2015:
Hey guys!, the update for both OS X Mavericks (10.9) AND OS X Yosemite (10.10) is finally here! Download is available in the new link below!
Note: -you may notice that SAI's window might be shaking/stuttering when you move it over the desktop, that is a very normal bug that couldn't be solved, but it doesn't affect the app's performance.
         -In case you want to add textures or to do anything with the app's program folder, please:    1- Click right on SAI's icon, then choose (Show Package Contents)
                                                                                                                                                    2- Navigate to (drive_c/Program Files/PaintTool SAI English Pack)
                                                                                                                                                    3- Here you go!, you can add textures and stuff here.

VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION:
KNOWN ISSUES (Updated info)

Pen Pressure will NOT WORK WITH ANY OF THE RELEASES ABOVE, PLEASE USE WITH CAUTION:
There is no possible way to integrate pen pressure support into the application because it requires to have .NET framework (4.0 or above) installed into the wineskin wrapper AND the tablet drivers which depends on the tablet you own, which will increase the file's size (at least 5 or 6 times larger since i need to put all the possible tablet drivers into the wrapper, and that won't make any sense), even with the .NET framework files installed, pen pressure won't work because of the absence of the tablet drivers, I know you're most likely going to have the tablet drivers installed into your mac, but it won't bring the pen pressure to work because the app itself runs a mini-Windows environment inside your mac, which requires it's own tablet drivers inside the app itself.


Latest & Previous Version Ported through Wineskin Winery
First Version Ported Through CXEx Ivory Wrapper

Is there ANY workaround to the pen pressure issue? :'( I want to try SAI again, I just love the softness of the images that you can't quite get in Photoshop, but I'm on a Mac :(

Is there a way to download your own tablet driver into it? While I think the time you've put into this is really admirable, the programs pretty much worthless without pen pressure.

I nice alternative is putting Windows on a partition in your mac and running Paint Tool from there. No lag, then.

Flopsydabunny Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2015  Student General Artist
I do have virtualbox for the purpose of running some programs, but it's really slow and gross. I guess a full partition would be better but...eh....I don't really want to use disk space for that.

MelonKony Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Windows is about 20gb, so maybe 30gb of space would be nice? I don't know. Up to you. But having a partition in my experience always makes painting more enjoyable than painting through emulators.

Depending on how much money you're willing to spend, by far the best painting program I've come across is Corel Painter 2015, which is on Windows and OS X. It's easy to use but has great depth, and it's a really well-built and lovely designed program. The prebuilt brushes are fantastic. I can't find a feature missing anywhere. So give that a look, although it's expensive.

Yeah, I've had that before when I had a windows computer (a couple years ago, so an older version of course), but it broke when the computer crashed. I was too young to really appreciate it but I remember it being absolutely amazing to paint on, and I'd love to use it now when I have a tiny bit of painting ability cx. I'm sure there are downloads somewhere, or who knows, I might be able to save up^^" Would you say it's definitely better than SAI? Because that's definitely more popular, though it could just be price.

MelonKony Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
It's a bit tricky to make a fair assessment, since I haven't spend a whole lot of time in SAI (although it's on my computer), but everything I've seen in SAI (from brush customisation to the interface to the way paint handles) is just as good or better in Corel Paint 2015. Ultimately, it comes down to the artist, not the tool, but Corel Paint really maximises what you can do digitally. I adore it. For reference, I have used:

Adobe Illustrator CS6
Adobe Photoshop CS6
Sketchbook Express
Sketchbook Copic Edition
GIMP
PaintTool SAI
Artrage Studio and Art Rage 4

... And loads of different things on my iPad. And Corel Paint blows them all out of the water. Except, maybe Art Rage 4 has better paint physics. Art Rage 4 has beautiful visual and realistic paint, and it's almost like you're really painting. But Corel Paint 2015 excels in everything else. I love it.

So here's what I would do. The link at the bottom of this leads to the 30-day trial of Corel Painter 2015, and you can decide for yourself how it handles. I wouldn't worry about not mastering it in that time, as I spent like two hours just drawing and painting and everything was there intuitively.

See if you can find a download. I just had a quick google and there are torrents aplenty for this, but it's up to you whether you want to do that. Either way, get the trial and test it out, then download or pay for the full version. Either way, they're both good programs, but I just happen to prefer the look and feel of Corel Paint 2015. If you want a link to a torrent, just send a message. I bought the full version, but I totally understand that $400 will just kill many artists.

Whoo... Long message :D Here's the link:

:/ yeah, can't do pen pressure even though you can open the app on mac. The only option I can think of is to get parallels or boot camp.

Hm, I do have virtualbox, though it runs really slow and I'm not sure I want to try drawing on it. Good idea though, and probably worth a shot.

With all the updates and whatnot, this person seems fairly dedicated to it (especially since some updates are even from as far back as 2012 but there are still some fairly recent)
So it's probably safe to assume that it's fine, I've never seen anyone write out this much and show that many details (that are well written and true)

It'd probably be a bad idea to download it from a site thats like "PAINT TOOL SAI FOR MAC!! FREE!!!! DOWNLOAD NOW!! DOWNLOAD HERE!!!!!!!"
obviously that isn't the case here tho

It kept saying "We are unable to install this application because it’s not compatible with your OS" even though my versions (OS X Yosemite) obviously works. I tried all 3 links and got the same results. Instead, it made me download sketchy genieo browser product that doesn't do anything and now I cannot uninstall D:

There is a alternative for mac users that is like sai. It's called Clip Paint Studio or Manga Studio, there both the same. It has pen pressure and the exact same tools with added effects. It does cost money though, I bought it for £20 which isn't bad. It's great program and you won't regret <3
