That light is pretty convincing even though it's just simple raster.

the dots were done with photoshop, but not with one of its filters. i did a bunch of tones using dots, with different values and i apply them on my drawings, to flesh them out. i use fusion masks to apply the tones where i want them. it's that simple.

So simple I don't even know what a fusion mask is...sigh.
Still, John THE fool is quite accurate to my memories. Will we see the Metabaron pretty soon?

Nice work

How do you make the dots in PS? Sorry I'm such a noob when it comes to digital stuff.

don't be sorry :)
there are different ways to do dots with PS. the most obvious is to use the half-tone filter. it will convert your image or selection into dots, lines or circles. it can be interesting but often gives a "standardized" look to your piece.

or you can do like Paul Pope (http://pulphope.blogspot.com/) and scan actual half-tone sheets and use them with PS as a layer.

i don't have access to half-tone sheets.
so what i did is this: i did a dot, a few pixels wide. then i duplicated it horizontally until i had a line. then i duplicated this line vertically until i had a square of dots. duplicate the square until it fills the entire space of your document. save the layer. do the same on another layer with either bigger dots or less space between each dot. that way you have a variations of tones to use as you see fit and you can re-use them from one piece to another.
there's probably a smarter, better way to do it though :wink:

i hope that helps.

if you want to do that faster, you can create a small, square document - the width of the dot size you want plus the space you want between the dots, then place a dot of the size you want right in the middle and go to edit -> define pattern. Now you can use it as a fill pattern! Tada! :)

Much much love for the Incal piece <3
A very good use of "trames". Nice pose and composition on the Marshall Law piece too.
