About This Class

Halftones are an important part of daily printing techniques, most notably used in screen printing. But halftones have also found their way into iconic design and illustration because of their unique look, regardless of the application.

In this class, Graphic Designer and Illustrator, Jon Brommet, will teach you the various methods for creating halftones in both Photoshop and Illustrator. Whether you are comfortable with one program or the other, you will find the best methods to create stunning halftone designs.

Although it is expected that you have a basic understanding of one of the programs (or both), you may be able to follow this class without any prior knowledge.

In this class you will create a bad-ass halftone portrait of your favorite pet, character, or yourself! You will have learned some cool new halftone techniques, so use one or more of them in your illustration.

See you in class!

I've taken a few of Jon's classes now and I really like that he always offers up a handful of different methods to approach a technique. I also enjoyed that the outro video in this class includes encouragement for students to share their whole process. Awesome intro to halftones!
