Silly me, looking for a "brush-like" brush

I toyed with a demo of Illustrator at one point that had reeeeally neat "water-color" and
"calligraphy" type brushes (or what I presumed to be termed "brushes")

I'm searching zillions of rather incredible freeware PSP brush sites, have learned to import
and create a few of my own, but durn if I can find one that simulates the smoothness of
that illustrator brush, if I coudl find anything deemed a paint brush. The obvious search
terms give me way to many non-pertinent results.

Seeing how elaborate brushes can be this has become like looking for needle in
haystack...can anyone point me to a site that would have simple old "paint brush tip"
brushes? I'm not overwhelmed with the default ones in PSP, was hoping there was one
that simulated the illustrator version. I presently own PSP7, but even if it were just the
image of the brush stroke and angles, I could probably do the import etc.

TIA for any ideas -- corq

Never used Ill, but I'm afraid, if you haven't found it yet, it may
not exist. I have lots of great eight brushes, but still don't get one
thing, I'd really love, LOVE, and that would be a brush where you
could make some lite, pencil thin lines, then push down and pull like
the middle of a watercolor brush, then, ease up and go to a medium
wide stroke. This doesn't exist, the flexibility of a real brush. The
other missing feature, is two colors, side by side on a brush. Painter
does this, so I know it's possible. Any Jasc pixel pusher who makes
one for this version of 8, I will give a reward. I'm sure that in
time, all the things we want will come, it's not easy.

Uh, Graphire has pressure sensitivity. It lacks some other Intuos features like angle

It works with a Graphire and any other pressure sensitive tablet, not
just Cintiq or Intous.
