What I Did On My Day Off

Here's something for the Photoshop nerds. I did this little experiment to try and create a Photoshop action which will take a line-art drawing with blue wash and turn it into a line-art drawing with a dot screen tone. I tried to make it so that I can pencil in magenta and the pencils will drop out, too - which seems to work. The end result looks a little bit like Billy DeBeck.

Basically, I just want to be Billy DeBeck.

Here's the "Before..."

... and here's the "After."

I think this might have possibilities, not least for creating art very, very quickly that still looks halfway decent. I shall be exploring this further...


  1. Cool. Blue wash only or does this work with blue line pencil shaded in?

    1. I haven't tried that yet. In theory, I should be able to make that work too, but I'll have to do another test to find out.


Due to excessive spamming, I've reluctantly had to activate Comment Moderation on this blog. Please leave a comment and I'll get to it ASAP.
