Lo-Fi Halftone Print Effects You Have to See to Believe.

I always wondered why nobody did it before us. I mean, old school halftones are beautiful… you think that one art nerd would’ve made halftone brushes this good.

We did make them and it turns out it takes a long time to get halftones right. 

DupliTone for Clip Studio Paint lets you...

  • Get aged, lo-fi halftone shading better than anything on the market.
  • Create diverse halftone effects with no complex settings.
  • Seamlessly layer halftones for shading and texture variations.
  • Choose from all the classic dot and line percentages and angles (see brush list below).
  • Choose between traditional, rough or squeaky clean smooth halftones.

Before DupliTone, you either had to make do with the limited default brush capabilities of Clip Studio Paint, or if you were dedicated, scan real halftones and add them with a mask.

Even with all that work, the results are far from authentic. And if you need more intricate tonal variations for shading you just might find the task nearly impossible.

DupliTone was built from the start with classic vintage offset printing in mind. Capture the classic look of print found on consumer packaging, cheap print work, and ephemera.

DupliTone Standard Brushes

  • 9 rough halftone dot brushes (10% - 90%)
  • 18 rough halftone line brushes (10% - 90%)
  • 9 smooth halftone dot brushes  (10% - 90%)
  • 18 smooth halftone line brushes  (10% - 90%)

DupliTone Shader Brushes

  • 9 rough halftone dot shader brushes (10% - 90%)
  • 18 rough halftone line shader brushes (10% - 90%)
  • 9 smooth halftone dot shader brushes  (10% - 90%)
  • 18 smooth halftone line shader brushes  (10% - 90%)

Note: All brushes are 45° angle halftones and come in 10-90% tonal ranges.

Extras

  • Quick Start Tutorial. A short and sweet tutorial to show you how to use the brushes. Just image a good friend spending a minute showing you the ropes.
  • Quick Illustration Tutorial. Did you look at the cat illustration and REALLY want to do a piece like that? Retro illustration master, Robin Banks, shows you how they they made one of the cats from initial sketch to final piece in a quick and to the point two-minute video. The tutorial is in Procreate but the same concepts apply in Clip Studio Paint.

What makes these brushes different than other halftone brushes and textures I own?

Each halftone brush has been perfectly tuned with the other brushes in the set. That means that any halftone dot, line, or tone percentage will paint on top of the others perfectly. That means you can create halftone shading and tonal variation unlike anything on the market.

Will these brushes work with Photoshop, Procreate, Illustrator, Affinity, or Clip Studio Paint?

Yes! But be sure to buy the brushes for the software you use. The set on this page is exclusively made for Clip Studio Paint. 

Are these brushes difficult to use? I'm pretty new to Clip Studio Paint.

The brushes are not difficult to install or apply to your work. One of our objectives in making these brushes was to make a stupid simple alternative to our more complex ColorLab color halftone brush packs.

Is this a brush set or a plug-in? 

A carefully crafted brush set. The RetroSupply creative team invested around three months of full time work into designing, building, testing, rebuilding, and tweaking this brush pack.

Will you teach me to make illustrations like this?

We've included a 3:46 video overview of the illustration process illustrator Robin Banks used to create the illustrations in the pack. This video shows how one of the cats like the ones on the cover is illustrated.

We also release new tutorials and articles each week. We also host Instagram Live events each week where we have professional illustrators teach you how they use our products.

    It works great (and with different styles of illustration)

    I’ve been playing with these brushes a lot and they are easy to use (and understand). I was a little messed up but then I opened the pdf file and watched the tutorial on the web, then it was so easy! They explain step by step the process. Maybe if you use a mouse you'll need more patience to draw with detail, with a drawing tablet I guess is easier because you control better the coloring. I recommend to anyone looking to add some unique texture to their work, these are well made and gives a taste of amazing technique! I would suggest also including some samples of different styles of illustration so that one can see the extent of possibilities. I mean, in the examples of the site there are ‘classic’ illustrations. But not necessarily this style is compatible with DupliTone brushes. It can also be used in infographics, in conceptual drawings to give a personalized touch to some shape, in vector illustration… Really takes simple illustrations to another level.

    Hi Luis,

    Thank you for your detailed review of your DupliTone purchase! We are grateful for your suggestions and plan to provide a broader range of example art in the coming year.

    If you're having trouble applying DupliTone with a mouse, try using the pen or shape tools. This can make things easier. Please feel welcome to email us at support@retrosupply.co if you need more assistance or suggestions.

    Extremely awesome brushes!

    my cartoon style is very retro and these are the kind of brushes I've wanted to try out for a very long time! Using these brushes in Clip Studio is simple, fun and they really turn the art into that vintage comic style I try to achieve ! Thanks, Retro Supply!

    Love it! Just one little thing…

    Maybe I’m missing something but I’d like to be able to edit the swatches to match my drawing’s colours and tints.
