When using the brushes in Photoshop, it is as if you are using a real brush wherein you can be able to draw anything with it. So various Photoshop versions manage to present distinct brushes.

When using Photoshop, there are various types of brushes and these are the Spatter, Chalk, Star, Scattered leaves and more. However, not all this brushes are available to use. If this is the case, you can simply click the small arrow beside Brushes to launch the menu with the list of all brushes available.
 
Select, for example, Assorted Brushes. You will be notified if you want to change the existing brush set or just add this brush to the current list. 
 
Creating custom brushes:
 
Before creating your own set of brush, you need to remove old brushes from the inspector. It will not remove those set of brush from the disk but only those brushes that you recently used. You can always launch it if you want. Select the brush and then right-click on it to delete it. Click OK to confirm. Repeat the same process until you delete everything.
 
How to make and identify Photoshop Brushes:
 
The two main structures that describe brushes to set the limits and how it can be a brush. Anything can be a brush.
 
1. Color – Photoshop generally used grayscale when identifying brushes. You can actually create a brush using an image with full of colors and turn your document to grayscale. In this way, you can have an idea of what you want to do. White can be transparent if the opacity is set to 0% and black can be 100% opaque. Other images can be translucent if set to 0-100%.
 
2. Size – There have to be a max size for a brush. The larger the brush is, the better. Photoshop 7.0 uses a 2500 px by 2500 px. Older versions uses 999 px. It would be best to use larger brushes so you can expand the diameter of the brush without making the image blurred.
 
There are many ways to make a brush. User can scan an image, or use a vector images or any photo. A guide below will help you in the process of making a sample brush in CS4 using a scanned ink stroke.

You can play a lot around in brushes, like changing it's opacity about to 10-20%. You can try painting digitally from this, so first, try using only black and white colors. It is easier to color it later, than to directly paint it to different colors. Paint starting from the lightest color to dark. After you have your desired result. Create a new layer and set its blending option to overlay.
