    A Good Gray Pattern?

    I want to clean HQ (how psychotic of me, I know...) but the main problem I have is finding a pattern, filter, whathaveyou to replace the grays on a page.

    I've used a film grain, and some patterns from psychobob and I just sorta want to hear other people's opinions and preferences... and sources if you have any.

    http://www.newfs.to/m_yuuki/html/halftone.html

    download the "halftone191.zip"
    extract the folder, and double click on the "Halftone.8bf" file. That should add it to the filter list in photoshop.

    To make patterns with it, make a new document at a large size, fill in with around the same gray color that you need, then use the filter and play around with the lines/inch and angle. I think the angle for most standard textures in manga is the default 45, but sometimes you might want to mess with it. So after you use the filter, you'll have a bunch of pure black dots, and then you need to resize the page down until it's about the same as what you're trying to match in the manga.

    I like the film grain, you could try to do that like this: http://senbonzakura.kageyoshi.net/20...ys-film-grain/

    it also depend on which manga you're cleaning
