Using new digital tools to mimic old printing and illustration techniques

For this year's Halloween series, I've been hand drawing the illustrations and then using Photoshop to create a faux zip-o-tone type effect. I always thought it was cool to see those evenly spaced lines creating shadows and textures on older illustrations. Then I colored this with the limited palette of colors used for silver age and bronze age comics. I did use a Gaussian Blur to soften the light and a satin FX layer for more shadow. It creates an interesting effect.
