Well.. hi boys!
I know that there's a section about Photoshop Brushes but i need your help.
I'm starting using a pen tablet (wacom bamboo fun) and i was reading lot of tutorials about digital painting but there's one thing that i didn't understand.
And it's the brushes and pen tablet configuration. I use PS CS4 and the wacom bamboo pen tablet and i want if it possible that anybody can take a screenshoot about how to set up the configuracion, and the second is if anybody could send me a little zip file with the basics brushes you use for digital painting... i'll be very happy.
(Sorry about my english... i'm spanish )
Sadly every photoshop painting/photo manipulation tutorial I've ever bought has neglected to go into the specifics of their wacom settings preferences
They also are always sped up so fast you can't really get a feel for how some of their brushes are set up to try to mimic them.
But here's a good brush set
google David Nagel photoshop brushes
If you can't find a working download link anywhere pvm me and I can email them to you.

From one random person's point of view, I highly recommend making your own brushes.
I'm not stellar myself, but while looking at other people's brushes and paintings can be useful to give you an idea of basic shapes or types of brushes that can be useful for certain things - I think you will learn more making them on your own.
I was using a custom brush set I downloaded from someone (not sure who, now) a long time ago for the longest time, but I've improved two or three times as much ever since I made my own small set of brushes. I feel more attached to them, I know exactly what they're for, how they were made, and what I made them for. I think there's something to be gained from making them yourself.
David Levy (sometimes known as Vyle) has a great tutorial that instructs you on how to make some very good and useful brushes. The best way really is to make them; figure out what you need and then try your best at making it. I can't help you with Wacom settings though, although I will be getting the same tablet as you in a few days, so I might be able to help you then
My deviantART. A library of things I've done so far.
The wacom settings can be controlled through Control Panel (if you're on Windows) and it's really personal preference. I have a pretty light touch, I know that, but I couldn't even tell you what my settings were for a wacom. They're probably pretty close to default, actually.
As for the brushes, I never got the hang of making custom brushes, although I occasionally use some downloaded ones for 'stencil' elements or texture, but for painting, I use all default brushes. :/
