Next go to Edit > Define Brush Preset, we'll just call this Charcoal Brush.

Go to Edit Define Brush Preset to Create a New Brush

Click OK, grab the Brush Tool, and in our Brush Presets, the new brush appears all the way at the bottom of the preset library.

To adjust the settings, open up the Brush Panel, increase the Spacing, engage the Shape Dynamics, add a significant amount of Angle Jitter, then the Flip X and Y Jitter. Create additional adjustments for more customization.
