Printing from a pencil sketch

Postby workshy » Sun Aug 19, 2007 12:26 am

Hey There
I have been comissioned to make som prints from pencil sketchs.
Has anyone got advice on how to perpare the art?
I recently did a duotone outputting film at 70 lpi and using a 355T screen and got good results, i would probably use similar settings unless someone has a better idea.
Cheers

I think the art is going to be more important then the actual production setup

Are you messing with the brightness & contrast in PS or Corel?
.... I can give you my opinion but I can't tell you if it's right or not.

We scan and touch up in photoshop, print it as a halftone to get all the detail of shading, burn on a 200 mesh, use light black ink. Print comes out perfect!
