: sai, photoshop, gimp for brush-like effects (i believe it's called the ink tool). careful if you're working on psd files in gimp--this file actually got corrupted after i saved and closed it, and i had to get a psd file recovery program to dig out the WIP image which unfortunately was already merged into one layer!
