Debaser for Photoshop

Comic Color Fills
for Photoshop

Rated 4.9 out of 5
Based on 18 reviews

Also available for Procreate.


Developed in collaboration with designer, illustrator, and low-brow comic fetishist Ryan Besch, Debaser authentically re-creates the low-fi aesthetic of vintage comic book printing from the comfort of your digital studio.


Based on authentic pre-digital color formulas and line screen angles used during the Golden, Silver, Bronze and Dark Ages of comic book publishing, we've built a huge package of ready-to-use pattern swatches, actions and textures complete with a streamlined process for applying them to your work. 

Join us on a journey back to when brush and ink ruled the studio, digital publishing was but a sweaty fantasy and everyone smoked like it was a cure for cancer.





Here's what you get:

  • A 125 color pattern library based on pre-digital color formulas and print-production specifications. Lightly distressed for authentic results.
  • 13 x archival paper and stain texture PSD's in classic comic book format (6 5/8" x 10 1/8") @2X resolution (3969px x 6073px).
  • 10 x distressing actions for roughening your keyline art.
  • 14 x coloring shortcut actions to quickly perform common tasks such as adding new color layers and layer masks.
  • 3 x reference color charts for the Golden, Silver/Bronze, and Dark ages of comic book publishing.
  • 1 x installation guide.
  • 1 x comprehensive written tutorial detailing every step of the process along with tricks and tips for authentically re-creating the low-fi aesthetic of vintage comic book printing.
  • 1 x paper texture cheat sheet.

 

Key Features:

  • Import and mask pre-mixed comic color fills straight into your work.
  • Roughens and distresses your keyline art with control over ink color, distressing scale, and texture intensity.
  • Non-destructive - keeps your original artwork intact.
  • Become an expert vintage colorist with detailed process tutorials included.
  • Easily switch color swatches and edit dot scale with simple one click editing.
  • Color your artwork with a choice of streamlined and manual processes that replicate traditional production methods for super-authentic results. 
  • Built with archival textures and paper samples from vintage comics, graphic novels, pulp fiction books and ephemera.

Photoshop skill level:

Best suited to regular Photoshop users with a good working knowledge of the app's core features and user-interface. Not compatible with Photoshop for iPad.

      About Ryan Besch.

      Ryan Besch is a multi-talented designer, low-brow illustrator and DIY merch maker from Buffalo, NY. Inspired by the taboo underbelly of the cultural landscape, Ryan's work features a cast of unseemly characters, from smoking hotdog-banana's and bird flipping condoms to sweaty gimp mask dungeon-masters and cigarette smoking foods.

      Mostly working in pen, brush and ink, Ryan's illustration work reflects his love of  vintage comics and low-brow humor whilst his graphic design and poster work is a masterclass in textural witchcraft and screen-printed aesthetics.

      With an impressive list of clients including Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, The Kills, Phish, The Black Keys and Nitro Snowboards, Ryan still finds time to work on his self-published range of t-shirts, posters, stickers and pins under his brand Weird Sin Industries.

        Amazing tool

        This tool is awesome- really toothy textures that would take hours to replicate otherwise, and it takes less than 10 seconds to apply. Not dug into the colour stuff as much yet, but the ink texture tool is worth it on its own! Slows down PS a smidge, but you can easily uninstall and reinstall when you need it as the process is really easy. Would recommend especially for replicating riso/litho textures!
