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 ):

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.

Thanks. I use basic hard brush and I feel like I'm doing it wrong.

This was such a pleasure to read! I was amused in hearing your "voice" in it. I look forward to experimenting with the "Spicy Curry Brush"! Thanks so much for making this!

...I hate Photoshop Elements. This tutorial is impossible to follow in it...

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