How to: Get that trendy dotted brush

I was bored and annoyed with all the requests for 'dotted brushes' in all my brush communities, so I decided to make a tutorial on how to make them yourself. It's very easy, but if I've confused anyone, feel free to tell me. =) This, as are all my tutorials, is for Photoshop.

(As a point of reference, throughout all of this, the brush size I'm using is 5px with the hardness set to 100%. But you can use any setting you'd like.)

So now you can go forth and sign a lot of dotted lines...or something. Hope it helped!
