Screentone paper tutorial

I found this tutorial in my file,and I tried to translate it into English.
Pepople don't use traditional screentone papers nowadays,even myself seldom use it now.

However I still think I do much better with traditional tools than media tools :P

Ah, thank you very much! Very helpful. I don't do digital art very much (I'm a traditional girl :D), and I recently bought some screentones, with not a very good idea of how to use them. Thanks!

Hi,sorry for the late reply.

I suggest you to use art knife,
it is more easy to control,just like using the pencil.

Also,you'll need to practice how to cut the paper softly.
You don't need to press the knife hardly if your knife is sharp enough.

For the furthur practice,try to scrape black paper with your knife without cut the paper.
This practice will help you have better controling with your knife.

I hope you can understand what I'm saying.It's not easy for me to explain it in English^^;

Oh this is graet! I've been looking for a good tutorial for screen tones sheets as I bought a packet and wasn't sure how to use them.

Scratching screentone papers is a lot of fun:)
