the 'height' and 'linear height' modes in texture panel of brush palette - I don't know quite how they work exactly but I had a play today.
One thing I like is a bog standard brush but a bit of tooth to it like it's on paper, it makes me feel happier drawing that way. There's different ways to achieve this but one nice and simple way is to set texture on for the brush, set the mode to height, and fiddle with the depth til you get the toothiness you like. it seems to work intuitively and gives a nice papery grit to sketch lines! easy peasy.
