An Unexpected Tweet
:star: An Unexpected Tweet
This came out of nowhere.
A fan of my work named Michelle Dunning posted a tweet this morning, with a photo.

I still have that book sitting beside me everyday when I'm drawing in the studios, to remind me of two things:
i) Remember my roots as an indy comic artist
ii) Never go back to the amateur storytelling that came with it.
The experience of self-publishing my graphic novel GRAND HUNTER back in 2010 was invaluable. I worked on the project more so as an experiment - to test myself on what I can create and what my limits were at the time. And for those who may ask: "Did you make money out it?", I'd say: "Not really, and it was never my intent to make a profit".
Despite all the achievement I still cringe at the sight of my old work - I don't feel any real satisfaction if I'm being honest. I've had friends who told me not to discredit myself too much over it. Still I cringe. Why?

Screentone Tutorial

This is a fast and easy way to generate the screen tone look digitally.  It took me a bit of experimenting to figure it out.  Hopefully some of you will find this useful.  

Start with the initial line art.

Add the background

Add a white layer for the clipping mask so I can easily do a paint over.


I have the shading done on multiple layers, so in order for the next step to work I select all the shading layers, including the background, hide the line art layer, and choose the 'Copy Merged' option under 'Edit'.   This allows me the get all the shading layers merged and copied.

Paste the new merged copy into a new window, change the Image type to Bitmap.  If the option is grayed out, change it to gray scale f
