Thank you so much for this! I'm new to colouring, and while I do like photoshop, I find Sai a LOT easier to use and less laggy for my laptop. Also Sai's Blur/Blend brush is like 100x better. This is going to help a ton, thank you!
No, I doubt it'd be one layer. Because the fact remains the same: you would need to change the way the style. If you set the entire layer you drew on to "luminosity", it would all be bright and neon when not all of it should be this way in most cases. Of course, even if you did use thousands of layers you could always just merge them all together if in a folder with one click, or manually do it by pressing the button over and over (but be careful, as often you will find yourself messing up with the light value, so it's best to just put them all in a folder). Excuse my English as well. ^^'

The tools you mentioned are not included in the regular layers in Paint Tool SAI, they are included in a different type of layer (called either the vector or linework layer)
You get that layer by going to the normal place where you press to add a layer, go to the layer icon and slide your mouse to the right. There should be an icon with a piece of paper with a pen over it. That is the vector layer, which is where the edit and pressure tool are available to you.
I hope I didn't give you useless info that you already know, but there isn't really any other way to explain it and I don't know why you wouldn't have those tools in the vector layer selection...I really hope I helped you a little though!
(just read the date of the comment post...you probably know all this by now derp but I wrote alot so I'll post it to you just in case)
Thank you for providing this walkthrough! I have one question though, if you could help me.
For some reason, I don't have the xShape_Arrow option visible in SAI. But there are files of it in the elemap folder and brushform file. The same is true for the other brushes starting with 'x'... do you know what could be wrong?
Did you buy your version? You or did you download it? If you buy it from the Sai site you will have all the brushes including awesome ones like the 'flat' brush If not its easy to get, you basically just paste it into your elemap folder.
