I usually use Artweaver or Corel Photo-Paint for them but as I stated this tutorial is universal and should work with PSP, GIMP (especially well with 'GIMP for painters' [link] ), OpenCanvas, TwistedBrush - basically on every app that supports layers, blending modes, selfmade brush settings etc.
BTW. Thank you for multiple faves ;)

Thanks for these - I haven't read alot about changing brush dynamics/pressure/opacities and I feel these tutes will help. :)

I think these are common rules that apply no matter what software you use, so if you learn how to do some things in one you'll be able to recreate similar effects in other applications :)

Thanks, this was really helpful. Unfortunately, I can't use your brush set since I use Photoshop. Maybe I can figure out how to make my own. ^_^

...and if you're running Windows or Linux with Wine you can always try Artweaver which is freeware :D

Your current basic brushes look pretty well :) You don't have to change them.

Most of my basic brushes involve texture so adding texture dynamics I think might be good idea. They usually come in two variations - one with normal blending mode and the second (darker version) with multiply blenging mode. For sponges I used textured brushtip with rotation set to random also with some scattering. To recreating 'smudge colour edge' brush might be helpful Photoshops watercolour setting that makes edges darker than the core.
Lets think how would other brushes look like...
For white drops you can use small simple circular brush with low flow and with high scattering dynamics. You can achieve deform effects through liquify tool and smudge effects through smear tool. For smear brush tip made out of small dots with low spacing (bristle brush) probably would be the best.

I hope this description will help you to recreate brushes in PS ;)

Cool, thank you! I made myself a brush that approximates those white spatters pretty well (it also works well as an All-Purpose Texture Brush :D). Still trying to make a nice salt effect, though. I'll try what you suggested with the liquify tool.
