Tones are important in comics to establish depth and a sense of lighting. Comics need to be coloured, even if they are black and white. And that is what we will learn in this video lesson on tones in Krita.

Black and white comics are a valid stylistic choice when presenting your work. The vast majority of manga is still produced in black and white, even without the colour restrictions of the past.
