    It looks like a solid color hit by a spotlight placed on it at an angle. You can easily get this effect in Photoshop or Painter.

    i aint no expert but it looks to me that is got some noise added to it.. I do that in Photoshop by going layer > layer style > blending options > tick 'inner shadow' (and mess around with the bottom slider labeled 'noise')

    Or you could do a pattern/solid colour on the base layer. Then make a new layer and take a gradient from black to transparent and make it as you want and then slide with the transparency

    This is how to make it, in photoshop

    Choose a solid colour,

    Go to Filter > Noise > Add Noise - about 1% with Gaussian and Monochromatic Ticked,

    Then go to Filter > Render > Lighting Effects - Default, posistion it so the light part is at the top.

    Then you have what u wanted

    Not quite identical, but yes that's how you do it.

    If your using Photoshop just go to Filter-->Render-->Lighting Effects on the menu bar.

    Play with lighting settings until you find the right setting.
