Select the brush to paint with.

You can download the custom brushes just typing the word Custom Brushes in Goggle or enter the Photoshop forum box on www.conceptart.org. Or enter a resource section on www.deviantart.com

So here is my brush. See how it blends. Now it has no settings. As you see it has some very angled but soft edges and interesting hair, or something, architecture.

Remember this. Every Photoshop brush can be used in different situations depending on bush settings. For example you can paint clouds and forest leaves with the same basic round Photoshop Brush. So the settings are very important. Moreover as you know Corel Painter has an amazing brush imitation that varies from Photoshop, but I tell you using dual brush and other dynamics settings you can reach this very effect. The brush will bleed like in painter and will have amazingly blended texture. Try to experiment and remember all your settings on every brush.

So here I have my brush reacting to pen pressure
  
set to Angle and Roundness jitter.

Playing with value. If black and white: what is near to my, to an artist will be more in contrast (more black) and Visa Versa - more white background.
