I never uploaded my brushes before, because they are actually mostly standard photoshop brushes or some free brushes that I got from fellow artists here on Deviantart. However, people still keep asking what I use, so I went ahead and made this! As you can see, there is not a huge difference between the four busts above. I tend to use my brushes in the same way, so the only real difference I get is some effects from the texture and shape of the brush. Still, I hope you find them useful! 

for more information, PLEASE read my FAQ at loish.deviantart.com/journal/F… !!

additional info for each brush:

hard round brush
warning: do not use this brush if you are stressed and have a habit of clenching your pen too tightly! in order to get strong lines you have to press down hard. using this brush during a time when i was already clenching too much contributed enormously to my injury!

I'm sorry to bother but would you by chance have a procreate version of these brushes? Or at least know how i could go about making the Procreate version more like photoshop ? 
iv never dabbled with custom brushes so i have no idea how to go about fixing it XD 

Essentially iPad's Procreate can import Photoshop brushes but some information gets lost and the brushes need alterations upon import, and id like to try and fix them and i really enjoy using them in photoshop

Nice tutorial. I use a old-fashionned Photoshop CS8 and there is some brushes you describe I don't currently have. (I having to reboot my old PC computer 3 years ago) It leave me another way to experiment opacity even more
