What would you guys consider the essential brushes to have for photoshop for texture and general painting? It seems the default brushes are pretty awful, but there are so many online it's difficult to set aside which ones are actually useful for painting.
Don't we have a questions thread?
The default brushes aren't really that bad. You've probably heard this before but, it's not the brush that really matters, but your actual artistic ability. If you're basically a beginner, stick to round brushes for the time being.
Not really a beginner, just had to switch softwares seeing as sai doesn't really give you the brush options you need to simulate the movements when working with traditional mediums.
Also, I expected the topic of brush sharing to be a bit bigger than something that would belong in a general question thread.

>look for brushes that seem useful based on whatever criteria you establish
>try them out
>discard what doesn't actually work well for you
And repeat. I don't use PS so I can't give you any specific recommendations, sorry.
