Hi there guys,
I see some work here, with some absolutely amazing texture, ill throw in some examples below. I really hope the artist's do not mind me using there images as examples.
But before i do that, i would like to know how exactly do you guys achieve this?.. ive been trying to look for tutorials, it might be a newbie mistake. But, ive stuck to web/corporate design now for about 5 years. So im baffled. :)




Some links to tutorials, or a couple of tips or w.e.. will be great. (y)

Cheers.

(i must sound so newb.)

    yeah looks like there's a few different techniques going on here, but all of them using halftones. sharpening a gritty texture then halftoning it is pretty standard, and i think the key is how to apply that technique in different ways.

    hmm, thank-you buddy. i will give it a try and play around. (y) although every-time i touch halftoning... it never looks like what these guys achieve. lol.

    None of mine are using halftones besides a few areas on the yellow/blue flame piece. Most of it is handdone stuff and tons of experimenting with a mix of traditional/digital techniques.

    Yep, most of the time actual halftones look like ass when printed.

    There are a ton of links on the internet, this one was the most recent. I actually really enjoyed the results.

    This is what I did with it:

  • Serji Gold

    In my example, that you see above, everything was hand drawn. I then created a texture which I erased bit by bit until I got the desired effect.
  • Jman

    Search on CXcity's blog, he had a great tutorial on how to halftone textures. Which is what I think you're after? Just experiment heaps.
