Seamless comic tone patterns I made at work while working on some Superman stuff. They're totally free and will work with
Illustrator CS+. If you use them for DA leave me a comment, I'd like to see what you guys do with them.



OH MY! A DD!! Thank you so much everyone! This is so exciting! Just the thing I needed to brighten my mood! :D


:star:HOW TO USE THEM:star:

-Open the PDF in Illustrator.

-Open the swatches pallet. There you should see all of the patterns. If they are not showing make sure that you have all swatches showing. (Theres a button at the bottom of the swatches pallet that looks like 3 overlapping squares. In CS4, when you click it you get a drop down menu.) Select "show all swatches".

-The easiest way to import them into the file you are working on is to select the boxes (not the swatches) you need and copy/paste them into the document you are working on. When you do this, the corresponding patterns will appear in the swatch pallet. (Again make sure pattern swatches are showing by clicking the 3 squares icon.)

-If you want to scale the pattern within a shape, select the shape(s) you want to adjust the pattern size in.

-Double click the Scale tool. You will get a dialogue box. Enter how much bigger or smaller you'd like the pattern to be in the "uniform" box. (values below 100 make it smaller, values above 100 make it bigger.) Check the preview box to see the effects in the shape(s). Make sure the only box you have checked in the options is "patterns". If you have anything else checked you will also be resizing the shape, and that might not be what you want. Press enter to apply the changes.

I can't understand how to use in Photoshop, where is the link?

These patterns are for Illustrator, not Photoshop. Link is on the right hand side of the page.

Does anyone have any idea where I can find very thin acrylic plastic templates for drawing uniform, consistent dots on paper.  My design is 100 dots per sq inch, but if you know of ANY I can ask if they have the one I need.

Sorry, I do not, I do all my halftones digitally (hence this freebie). Could you maybe use these patterns and print full sheets on acetate? And when it comes to half toning by hand, I think they are actually stickers or rub-ons, not templates...

can I use it in gimp in or Sai?

No, I don't think it will work. They are vector patterns, created with Illustrator. If you can open it in Illustrator, and covert them, then in theory it should work.
