Hard Round 25 Fading
Take your normal hard brush, make it 25px large. Now go to the Brushes menu and click "Other Dynamics", and set the Flow jitter to Pen Pressure in the drop down menu.
Hard Round 5 pixels
This is your basic, default hard brush when you load up Photoshop with the regular brushes it should be right at the top... no need to change it!
Load up default Photoshop brushes and scroll down til you see the soft brushes--- pick one that is at least 60px large. Open the Brushes menu and click "Shape Dynamics" and set it to Pen Pressure, then click "Other Dynamics" and have the Opacity and Flow jitters set to Pen Pressure as well.

If you have questions, comment here. Please do not note me... I won't be replying to questions individually, I will address them in a 3rd part to this tutorial.
"How did you do the fur like that?" isn't a valid question! Be specific. And please only ask questions about the techniques, not questions about your art program or tablet (google it! i am not a users manual).Other Notes
Sorry if there are typos, Photoshop doesn't spell check x_____x
ALL of the examples on this page were done with those three brushes I listed above (except the "Sleek Fur" which used my "Short" fur brush in one of the steps). sooo don't ask "what brush did you use for that?" cuz the answer for everything is that i used those three brushes in combination.
additionally... i did all of these examples on ONE layer, not counting an Overlay layer i would put on top at the end of the process to tweak the colors.
