Screetones with Loom #1: What is a Screentone? by LOOMcomics Screetones with Loom #1: What is a Screentone? by LOOMcomics
I know this one is kind of boring, but it's really condensed and simplified if you'll believe me. We'll actually be pulling from this as we go, and it'll make so much more sense as we progress!

Knowing these things is important! Especially when it comes time to make our own screens in Photoshop! :B See you next time.

We'll learn what attributes describe a halftone. What do all those numbers mean? What are all those options? Yes. Be there or be square!


Planned Topics:

1. What is a Screentone?
2. Anatomy of a Halftone: Frequency, Angle, and Spot Shape
3. Before We Start: High-Res, Low-Res.
4. Moire Pattern and Overlays
