A page I put together for the book, Mangaka America
. It's serves as an example image for a digital screentoning tutorial Lindsay and I wrote for the book.
The tones look a bit choppy in the reduced size web version of this picture, but that's to be expected.
I wanted the page to have dialogue beats between the characters so the reader's eye would seek across the page in a more natural way, but I didn't want words to distract from the page's purpose. So, instead of writing dialogue, I used a wavelength representing emotion and big punctuation to get the same effect across.
Also-- I'm considering creating an online resource for screentone. The archive would feature high-quality 600 dpi tones, that are ready for use in printing. If you have any interest in this, or have any professional grade 600 dpi tones to contribute, please let me know.
