    Check out these brushes made by Bumskee: http://www.minart.net/temp/basic.abr

    The first one is a good sketching brush. It's small, and works almost like a pencil. If you work with a wacom tablet, then it will feel more natural. If you're working with a mouse, the effect will look plastic, and harsh. So get a Wacom now! The best way in the end is to work with a good pen tablet, and just make your photoshop brushes sensitive to Pen Pressure.

    I use a standard brush and I flatten it a bit so that its not perfectly round. I then set the Size Jitter to 'pen pressure' and for that it works pretty much just like i would use a regular ball point pen.

    Sketching brush really could be anything I think.. bit of grit does help but any brush at size 4~8 with pressure to size seems to work well.
