Absolutely!! You can download brushes designed for GIMP (just google them), make your own (http://www.2d-digital-art-guide.com/custom-gimp-brushes.html), or even convert PhotoShop brushes into GIMP brushes (http://www.gimptalk.com/forum/topic/tutorial-How-To-Convert-Photoshop-Brushes-4349-1.html).http://i44.************/2s9b21f.jpg

The latest version of GIMP supports Photoshop brushes. You just search for the brushes folder in the program file and past the .abr or w/e brush files in there. Once you open up the Gimp after installing the new brushes, you'll have to tweak the spacing each time use you open the program to get the effect you like ( e.g. stamp vs. solid stroke). In the brush settings dialog box, the closer you slide the spacing to "1.0", the more smooth and solid the brush stroke will be.

It looks like there's a download link on DeviantArt:

Also, the newest version of GIMP (http://www.gimp.org) is 2.6.4 (2.6.5 for Linux users).http://i44.************/2s9b21f.jpg

2.0 is outdated... I'm running 2.6 here at home - and it may even be old now. get the latest at www.gimp.org ;)

the wiki there should help with the second issue:

basically speaking - open the file you download from deviant art with GIMP, then save it as .gbr extension into the gimp brush directory.
