I have a Wacom Intuos 3 pen tablet. I bought it so I can naturally draw directly into the computer.

Working in Photoshop, though, I cannot seem to find the brush settings that mostly resemble drawing with a regular pencil (opacity, edge etc...).

Can anybody direct me towards a resource or downloadable brush that will have settings and shape similar to that of a regular, moderately soft pencil?

Have you already tried the wacom brushes?

I think you missed the first line in my question: "I have a Wacom Intuos 3 pen tablet." – Yuval May 12 '10 at 19:40
I think you missed the fact that Photoshop is not a traditional media simulator, and all the configurable brush parameters are right there in front of you if you don't like the defaults. – Hasaan Chop May 12 '10 at 20:29
Sass much? I'm asking a simple question here - that's one hell of an agressive comment. This is a friendly community - please participate appropriately. – Yuval May 13 '10 at 7:42
Yuval, His comment was probably my fault. I changed my answer after your comment. He most likely didn't see my original answer. – devSpeed May 13 '10 at 14:22
