PaintTool SAI for Mac 0.3 by bryce-z PaintTool SAI for Mac 0.3 by bryce-z
DOWNLOAD LINK: [link]

EDIT 12-19-11: SAI 4 Mac 0.3, download link updated.

New version has a completely different Wine core for testing.

If you're having trouble launching it install XQuartz.

This is PaintTool SAI running on Mac OS X via a self contained Wine wrapper. I put this together and figured it'd be useful for some people here on dA. If you'd like to give it a try click the download link. Enjoy!

To install: Double click to unzip and drag PaintTool SAI4MAC.app to your Applications folder.

Known issues include no tablet pressure recognition, this is a limitation of Wine and X11, sorry.

Repeat: TABLET PRESSURE DOES NOT WORK AND WILL NEVER WORK.

Maximize may not always function but you can still drag the window to the desired size.

DISCLAIMER: If it's apparent that you didn't read the description before making a comment don't be surprised if your question goes unanswered.


Attention: Due to the massive influx of stupid comments from people that didn't read the description or bother to comprehend anything about this before commenting, I'll be taking this down by the years end as I'm tired of constantly having to respond to these people.
I decided to leave this up since stupid comments en masse seemed to decline, enjoy.

I likely won't be making any new updates for future versions of OS X or bugfix releases, this may change but the future prospects aren't likely, current version works on Mountain Lion but you may need to get the XQuartz libraries installed.

The lineart layer has a setting where you can tap and drag left or right on a line you've drawn and make it thinner or thicker

You can use your tablets, but there is no pressure sensitivity!
For example, if you wanted to make a line bolder by pushing down harder, you would not have the ability to do that with this program.

Since there are 2 types of layers you can use, I use the Lineart layer, which is beside the normal layer. The lineart layer smoothes the lines you draw with the pen tool, or you could use the curve tool, which you can draw out the line you want very smoothly. You can also use the edit tool on normal drawn lines. You cannot blur, fill (bucket tool), or select with the lineart layer. Needless to say, I highly recommend this layer type for lineart only.

I like this program, it works good with my computer. I only wish I could make it appear more like a Mac app instead of a windows when I do or save something to one of my folders. It would be so sweet if I could do that, otherwise it is okay. I would not download SAI from anywhere else. This version maybe lacking somethings from the windows version, but the person who worked so hard to put this app together did a good job. It has no glitches so whatever and my computer is a late 2009 and running OS X Yosemite. Thank you bryce-z😄

Ok, I downloaded the program and got it up and working on OS X Yosemite believe it or not, but are there more tools or a tutorial for this exact version that can show me where more of this programs stuff is. Please someone respond, thank you, and have a good day.

Hey so I downloaded it and unzipped it and all and opened it up, but it doesn't... say anything. like it says at the top of the screen that i have it open but when i go to click "file" to click "new" or something, there's no "file" tab. it just says "edit" "window" and "help". and when i opened up the help tab it took me to a page online and all it said was "pageok". Does anybody know what's going on?

does anyone know why the pen pressure doesn't work? 
I have the full version on my windows laptop but I want it on my mac as well for course work. It's sort of necessary that I have working pen pressure for a lot of my stylised drawings.
Is it possible that those having this problem have not changed the pressure in the brush settings? (The scroller under the pen size)

They said that it doesn't work, twice. That it never will work as it's a limitation of the programs needed to make it compatible for macs.

Thanks for the slightly condescending reply though, super helpful
Don't go all sassy pants on me cause you were the one showing unnecessary hostility towards someone just looking for a bit of information as a new mac user. I'm not rude I promise.

If you don't understand how wine bottling works, (basically taking a windows based program and forcing it to work on the mac OS via some fancy programming)  that's entirely different than ignoring the warning on the description. Your original comment made it sound like you had just not bothered to read the description; and they are wanting to take this down thanks to people constantly doing just that. 

With so few options for decent art programs on macs that don't cost an arm and a leg, it is extremely helpful to have this kept up as I believe Gimp and FireAlpaca are the only others that work with psds and are free... but  they aren't really great since they don't handle PSDs made in Sai or Photoshop well at all. :(

I think having Photoshop would be easier for mac users, and even though I have that on my mac (totally through super legal internet file sharing //nervous laugh) I mainly like sai for the easy brush settings and stability control for using tablets. It's such a bother to not be able to get pen pressure since it is a big part of most digital art, with style, digital paintings, and fine detail. :c
