Dot matrix printer

I guess you are pretty young

Actually that is not really what it is, it just reminded me of it

>>2492071
except this time, it was made on purpose. (the comic is modern)

If I were to replicate it, I'd find a suitable texture, overlay it on the drawing and make it a multiply layer.

news print halftone screen

if you look there will be only 6 or 8 colours actually in the image with some combination screens and black for tone.

I THINK Manga Studio can replicate this look. It's still very common even in modern Manga comics.

>How did they do it
Some of them used dot matrix printers, some of them used serigraphy.
In both cases it was caused by every colour being printed separately (hard to avoid with dot matrix printing, avoided in serigraphy by having precise alignment, which cheaply printed magazines didn't have).
Also some are still doing it (I'm looking at you Panini and I don't like what I'm seeing)

It's the exact same functionality, just different settings.
