Mypaint seems really nice. There was a project to add media brushes/effects for gimp some years ago, called Wetdream:
<a href="http://www.levien.com/gimp/wetdream.html" title="levien.com">http://www.levien.com/gimp/wetdream.html</a levien.com>
It's pressure sensitive also (shame that this wasn't implemented in gimp, the way it dilludes paint in a watercolor like way is very nice).
And, the what is by far, the best font editor available (imho), also has pressure sensitivity:
<a href="http://fontforge.sourceforge.net/" title="sourceforge.net">http://fontforge.sourceforge.net/</a sourceforge.net>
I don't know about Blender atm, but SharpConstruct author's project for google's summer of code, is a set of sculpting tools for blender, with pressure sensitivy (to replace the python sculpting tools)
There's also a (aparently) fantastic paint application, but it's for irix, and i wasn't able to build it (seems dependent on a couple of irix headers), but the website has lots of information and demo images, really impressive stuff.

Synfig:
<a href="http://www.synfig.com/" title="synfig.com">http://www.synfig.com/</a synfig.com>
is a nice 2d animation tool, but i don't think it has pressure support yet. There's Jahshaka as well:
