I often struggle when trying to make rough sketches on photoshop because I can't find a brush which works for me. Does anyone have any suggestions? Can be any default brushes or 3rd party ones. Appreciated.

Personally, I like the airbrush at a small size. It makes soft lines when you push down hard and hard lines when you do it lightly.

Which version of photoshop do you have? If you have CS5 and up you can get a free extention NKS5. It has many tools that are much like tradition tools. It has nice pencil brushes to choose from.

One thing I'm iffy about is whether you can turn it on or off as you want. If I can I'll pick it up.

It doesn't replace anything, if thats a worry. You can open and close its tab group as you can with layers, navigator and such tabs.(If that made sense) You can always uninstall it if you don't like it. Its a free extension, so you really have nothing to lose. :nod:
