For the next steps a Wacom tablet is very helpful but you can also do a good job without it. To make the brush strokes look good we will use the Pen Tool (P) to make paths than we will select the Brush Tool (B) and press Enter to stroke the paths with the current brush ( you can also right click the path with the pen tool selected and choose “Stroke Path”). To control the way our path is stroked we will have to open Window > Brush , select Shape Dynamics, change Control to Fade and tweak the amount until our strokes look good.
