Spicy Curry Brush Tutorial by augustc4 Spicy Curry Brush Tutorial by augustc4

This tutorial would work in any art program that has comparable tools.
Even early versions of Photoshop can manage this, but it may be a pain to set up your brushes
So I recommend using photoshop 7+, and of course a Tablet

If you want to see the finished image, check it out here: [link]
and for more tutorial goodness, mangaRevolution here: [link]

special thanks go to the cavedweller *tubenose for helping me learn this technique
without him I'd still be cell shading

Yeah my brushes don't fade, they tend to stay solid at both sides ):

Do you actually have this tutorial posted anywhere else since Manga Revolution went down? :/

I've been using this brush for nearly 5 years now and I find it almost indispensable. Your tutorial also helped me learn about brush editing at a time when I really didn't understand so thank you so very much.

I like the picture though. Favorited for whenever I get around to buying a decent version of PS.

I'm so interested to try this! I'll have to draw a new picture just for this.
Kaiohtee Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2008
Is there any way you can make this into a downloadable brush? It seems every time, I have to go and manually change my brushes to have this effect. Kind of irritating. Beautiful, though.

want to hold onto this, in case I ever develop the skills necessary to learn from it
Mike-J Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2008
I saw this on mangarevolution and i liked it.

I wish i had photoshop so i could do stuff like this...
but im stuck with GIMP that doesent have brush editing functions that are that deep.

Great tutorial :)
I really want to get into painting but my tools won't set up properly.
I've gone through several tutorials to get my brushes like theirs but they don't adjust like the brushes in the tutorials do...
I don't know why and I can't find a set of them to download.
Could you possibly help me?

This is a snapshot of all the settings I followed in your tutorial and the results. [link]" Results of my brush
