Halftone Tutorial for Photoshop and Illustrator

Say it three times fast…

Halftones: those cool little dots that create lovely tonal values, yet still maintain that flat, graphic look. If you search “how to do halftones” on Google or YouTube, you’ll find that there are a number of ways to achieve this effect. Here at the Go Media’s Arsenal, the best site for design resources on the planet, we tasked our designer Jordan Wong to find the best methods to share with you!

The Halftone Triple Technique Tutorial (check out that alliteration) brings you not only step-by-step instructional videos on three different techniques in both Adobe (CS5) Illustrator and Photoshop, as well as working resources. By learning through example illustrations, custom-made by Jordan Wong, you will soon be creating masterpieces and getting asked left and right, “How did you make those sweet halftones?”
