Don't ya also have to save your tool presets, since those are more specific types of brushes? (i.e., the brush palette gives you a brush and you set your options each time, whereas the brush saved as a preset has all those options saved in it)

Yes and no. You can do it either way, really.

The way I do it is you make the shape and save the brush. Then go into the brush options and adjust it the way you want. Save again as a new brush... delete the first one.

:) Good thing I did...it took 1 minute (literally) to rebuild this brush, using the screenshot I took. :)

I'll do a more complicated brush next week, when I have a bit more time to play.

It's been over a year, but I thought I would bump this because it's so useful.

Applying the awesome powers of this brush as a texture

Pardon this unadvanced question, please, but as I was interested in this due to your coloring panel, I now have forgotten how you recommended using a brush such as this (or the burlap one from the panel) to texture an existing, um, swath of color or say something more complex than a single color. For instance if I had a scaly-looking brush and wanted to make someone's flesh scaly? I'm messing around with digital pictures in the worst kind of way, I'm sure, but... Any suggestions?
