AHB flat

After exhausting my search I decided to ask...I bet it's been asked before.
One of the things I struggle with is many AHB are round our 'dab' or more spiral. Anyone have one that is actually flat and perhaps more square?
I know I can use any brush, but just wondering if anyone has a favorite...or point me to a past link.

thanks and sorry for redundency.

Re: AHB flat

One of my favourites is to take a normal hard round brush and flatten it:
  • <F5> (To open Brushes panel)
  • Brush Tip Shape: Set "Roundness" to 10%
  • Shape Dynamics: Set Angle Jitter Control to "Direction"
Now you have a pointy stroke which will follow (well, as much as AHB brushes follow anything!) the principle shapes of the image.

The image attached ("Oleander") was done with this brush (+ post AHB enhancments).

Re: AHB flat

Nice work Ro, thanks for the tip.

Zip- If you look at the standard Photoshop brushes (click the downward triangle to open the Brush Preset Picker, then click the right pointing triangle), one of the sets is Square.
I believe I heard somewhere they make interesting AHB brushes, although I haven't tried it myself.

PSALMS, I found your Oval Brushes, can you send me a link to your Flat brushes you mentioned? Thanks so much in advance.
