First Tutorial, and I tried to keep it basic and simple. It is geared towards beginners and is very laid-back and sketchy.
*Hatching is a very basic art technique. It's used in traditional inkworks as well as comics, foreign and local. The "preset square hatching" technique, it is found in Japanese How to Draw Manga: Pen & Tone Techniques
by Ryo Toudo and is ALSO featured extensively in the American artist Gary Simmons's The Technical Pen
. Look it up if you'd like to learn more, as both are great resources.
This pattern is often sold as a screen tone and is included in Computones, but you can mimic the effect yourself, getting more control over the placement.
