Rembrandt and Brushes ?
Hello friends of painting & art,
more and more I am digging into the fascinating world of old masters.
I am also still experimenting a lot with photoshop and brushes.
unfortunately, I can't figure out how I could create my own brush that will give me the same kind of look good old rembrandt achieved ?
Here is an image I found on http://daystarvisions.com

Especially on the cloth you can see the brush strokes...
Well... would be great if someone knows how to create such brushes, or maybe there are already some nice rembrandt brushes online ?
by the way, I am using PS.
thank you so much for any little help,

You can try and use textured brushes like speckled and bristled ones, as well as create your own custom brushes by making them manually by hand (paint an interesting brush shape and then capture it), or shoot photos of interesting textures and then modify them into brush shapes.
But ultimately, digital and traditional are not the same. You can't expect one to behave and look like the other. You can still create very interesting brushwork digitally, just that it's not going to look exactly like a traditional painting. No software can do that currently.
There are some digital artists with interesting digital brushwork, such as Craig Mullins, Jaime Jones, Ruan Jia, and Xiaoye Chen . If you're not familiar with their work, I suggest you go take a look.
