Again, much thanks for taking the time. :-)
Just thought maybe do a Google for pre sets. If you do, I think they go into the tools folder not the brushes.

Re: Barging about

Good idea, Peter.

I did the "Face with Character" poitrait Here

It's still awkward, but I see what you mean about keeping the brush size small and lowering the opacity.

Thanks for the help! :-)

Re: Barging about

I consider this:

http://martindigital.com/AH_Ballet_Tut/

the definitive tutorial on the Art History Brush. It changed my AHB life. The author, Joe Martin, is an AHB deity and a first-rate artist whose work is remarkable for its profound sensitivity to the subject matter. The tute includes some of his nifty brushes.

I can't recommend this tutorial highly enough. Really.

Looks like a good one there. Pity the brush presets link doesn't work.
If you've got them and its OK to share, could you post them here as a zip file????
