I'm not a digital artist myself but here goes:
I think you can do it in photoshop and MangaStudio. But it takes a lot of practice to learn the basics. Also you'll need a tablet, unless you draw with a mouse.

A tablet is really expenxive, at least a durable one.
Why are you worrying about ink spreads? These happen when you're using a Gpen or a brush. Dont use those.
Start with normal ink pens, like Staedtler Pigments or Uni Pins.

You don't get ink spreads with those.

A little tablet costs about 70 USD. I had mine for over 8 years with no issues before I decided to upgrade.

PS: Of these 8 years I used it very actively for about 3.

Having owned both, Bamboo Pen and Bamboo Pen and touch, i can state that both tablets are inexpensive and of incredibly quality.

In order to help you fully choose a software, i'll write out the basics of each software.

Software that can be used to ink manga -

Manga Studio (I use EX 4, so will give basics of that)

Paint Tool Sai: This is a drawing application, that seems to be more focused on creating illustrations

Manga Studio (I use EX 4, so will give basics of that)
  • Focused on creating comics, and is lackluster when colouring with it
  • Pens such as G Pens and Maru pens offere 'professional' quality lines, aswell as giving ability to ink according to pen style.
  • Over 3000 screen tones
  • built in perspective rulers help with drawing and creating backgrounds, incredibly useful for manga.
  • Manga Studio is also capable of rendering effects such as speed lines, and once learned can greatly increase comic productivity.
  • Speech bubbles

Paint Tool Sai: This is a drawing application, that seems to be more focused on creating illustrations
  • PTS comes built in with a Pen stabiliser. This is incredibly useful when beginning digital art, as it helps your lines become more fluid, and less shakey.
  • Brilliant colour options. Paint tool sai has brilliant colouring tools aswell, ranging from watercolour tools to pens and markers. Each tool can be customised to match user needs.
  • Friendly UI. It's pretty easy to get the hang off, and isn't as intimidating as Manga Studio or Photoshop.
  • No speech bubbles, rendered effects or any other tricks. This means everything has to be done by hand.

Photoshop CS6 -
  • Incredibly versatile software that can handle almost anything thrown at it
  • Can be difficult to use if new to digital art/Photoshop.
  • Is not focused on Art, instead is focused on a variety of things, such as photo editing
  • Brilliant line art tools, colour tools, and effects available. (Effects not aimed at manga)
  • I feel that it has supperior colouring tools when compared to PTS, but that's just preference
  • May require a better system than PTS and MS Ex

Well,Thank you for your help Jamieboy113,I already owned Photoshop cs3 and it's a good software,I am still looking for a tablet,If I can't find and then I think I will use pigment liner 308 fine liner pen and use either Manga Studio or Paint Tool Sai or Gimp (because I already use it) to colour.
Without you I would never know about these software,Thank you. ;D
