Screentone / Halftone in Comics / Manga
Hey all! I'm fairly new to this community but I've had a fascination lately with the technique of using screen-tone or half-tone (physical/digital) in comic books like some of the stuff seen in manga. I was wondering what your perspectives and knowledge were on this, as it seems like it's a way to enhance color work or make B&W work pop. Let me know what you guys think! Here's a couple examples of the stuff I'm studying where I've tried my hand at coloring under the B&W works that have that soft grayscale shading already set up for it (all credit goes to DC Comics' Jorge Jiminez, who happens to be one of my favorite artists to follow!)
I am a big fan of the old school zip a tone look myself, but these images are great. I don't know if you did these digital or not, but either way they look great.
I think most of the "grey wash" and half-tone techniques you are showing are actually the work of the colorist on the comics, and probably not Jiminez.

Hopefully the examples are as clear as possible since I used screenshots for the original work to provide a quick sample. If anyone has more knowledge to shine on art styles and techniques like this, I would love to be enlightened on this!
