Manga Tutorial 2: Chain-Hatch by LOOMcomics Manga Tutorial 2: Chain-Hatch by LOOMcomics
Sequel Tutorial to the one about basic hatching.

This one is a bit more involved. I love snake-hatching, and I think being able to do it by oneself is gratifying. I hope this is useful! Let me know what you think, or if there's anything you want to see in the future...

*This is something modeled after the technique used in Roy Toudo's Pen & Tone Techniques.

This pattern is often sold as a screen tone and is included in Computones, but you can mimic the effect yourself, getting more control over the placement.

Oh, you're welcome! I also enjoy using the line of Neopiko markers! It's got some particularly pretty purple colors that I like.

Guess I best be practicing than. ><;
Oh you're welcome, it's just lovely tut. :iconiloveitplz: One of the best I've ever seen.

Oh, and if you wouldn't mind me asking, where did you purchase your ink and pens? I know they're Deleter but that's about it. (So sorry if this is an annoying question, ;w; I checked your FAQ and couldn't find it.)

Thank you again! ^^

Hrmmm. It's been a while since I did this tut, so let me think... I use a lot of different kinds of inks; I just happened to have Deleter on hand. I think I bought it at Akadot Retail ( They're handy for having Japanese products on hand. Heres the link to the Ink portion of the store: [link] ... carries more variety though, so you can check there, too. > [link] Once you take shipping into account, either could be nice for you. [link] I can't say I've ever been unhappy with the product, I just tend to buy what's around these days. I loved the English Dr. Phil's Black matte ink, too. Mostly I use technical ink pens these days, combined with Kohinoor brand ink. I never thought about including art-related questions on my FAQ. Thanks for the tip!
