This is somehow a continuation of the previous journal with a listing of tutorials I use.
People ask me about what brushes do I use even more often than about me making tutorials. Unfortunately here I might help only Photoshop users as I've never used SAI or GIMP and my Corel Painter worked so unbelievably slow on my machine that recently I've simply uninstalled it.
To be honest, the brush I use most often is a simple round brush with tablet pressure controlling the opacity.
With that baby I paint almost everything starting from under-painting and ending on medium details. Yet, there are all sorts of different brushes I use for other things - hair, texturing, backgrounds, foliage and so on. Here are a few sets I have installed. I do not use every single brush from them and I've deleted most of them right after installation... sometimes leaving as much as 1-5 brushes from a set of 30. You can get rid of unwanted brushes by either using the preset manager in the brush menu panel or by clicking a brush while holding ALT key. It's not good to have too many brushes on your list. Not only will it confuse you but also it might cause slower brush-list loading on older machines.
After downloading and installing a brush set always test every single brush - play with it on a clear canvas, test it in different colours and using different strokes. Pick only those which you like and know how to use, delete the others or at least move them to the bottom of the list, leaving the most often used at the top.
If you have any questions related to using brushes, then go ahead and ask. I'll try to answer all your questions and use my awesome engrish skills to explain as much as possible.
