The tutorial of how I achieve watercolor effect in Sai! :) I highly recommend using real watercolor paintings (your own or ones found on the internet) as reference.

SLAMS FIST ON TABLE
uhh, you can use mine if you’d like?

If you’ve not installed a sai brush before, you just need to go to your SAI directory
(usually in appdata/local/systemax/easy paint tool sai or appdata/local/zame/paint tool sai english pack.)
(Type “%appdata%” into your start bar to jump to the folder to have a look)
And save that image as a .bmp in the elemap folder.
You then need to restart sai, but open it by using ‘start-sai.exe’ as that updates your config files.
I don’t even live in Japan but I’m a little freaked out right now.
I didn’t compile this list, I got it from here

Also the original Cow’s Head story, which supposedly makes you die from fright is said to have no known copies around.
