      Des comics à l'ancienne

      Un peu de stress au début car j'avais peur que l'utilisation ne soit complexe. Pas du tout. De supers effets.

      Using KraftTone has pushed my artwork in an unexpected but welcome way. It's been a lot of fun exploring the different brushes and making the artwork fit the retro style. Can't wait to see where it will take me next.

      Genius way to simulate classic CMYK printing!

      This is a great system for simulating that old school comic book feel. There’s a slight learning curve, but once you understand how the system works you realize it’s actually very straightforward. I have been looking for something to help me replicate kind of an old EC horror comics look for a few things that I’m working on right now and this is exactly what I needed.

      I’m also a sucker for creative approaches to using software to build workflows and tools that the software itself wasn’t set up for by default. I’m a huge customization guy, I use tons of auto actions to eliminate repetitive tasks. Maybe it’s a bit on the spectrum, but when I see somebody come up with a system for a niche workflow problem— and it’s efficient, creative, and I happen to be in that niche— I’m always thinking, “That’s a f**king genius solution!” This is one of those tools.

      Yay!

      Why didn’t I discover TG earlier? Top brushes. Nothing looks emulated-analog-art-supplies. Please make some watercolor and Gouache brushes, too! Thanks! 😁

      This effect is so realistic to the old styles of comic print!

      And the formulas for colour are incredible
