Last week I tried using the screen tone I bought at http://deleter-mangashop.com/. I was a bit scared in using it because I needed to use a cutter (it might damage the paper and my sketch) to scrape off the screen tone in the shape I wanted.
I could feel the cutter pierce thru the paper and it really made me anxious but I made myself focus because if I can’t my illustration would be in jeopardy. Anyways, I was able to cut! Yey! It was nerve racking but I like the effect it gave my sketch! ^^ I’m thinking of ordering some more screen tones and develop my skills further!
Btw, I’m just using an ordinary sketch paper but it’s a bit thick compared to ordinary bound paper. However when it comes to using screen tones especially when you have heavy hands, it’s better to use a Kent paper or a Comic Paper, they are quite thick.
