DOWNLOAD HALFTONES

If you haven't gone through all of the tutorials on our START HERE page, some of our tutorials will use our Halftone Pattern Fills. Our Halftones are extremely easy to use even if you are new to Adobe Illustrator. Download our Adobe Illustrator Halftones Folders to use with your own Vector Artwork. Follow Along with our Halftones Guide and Halftones 101 Series Tutorials to learn how to Apply, Resize, Recolor, and use the Blob Brush with your own artwork.

STEP #1: Download the Adobe Illustrator Halftone Folder. Downloading our textures is a straightforward process. All you have to do is Download and Extract All before using in Adobe Illustrator. Our Halftone Patterns are Adobe Illustrator Documents, so there is not any fancy way of opening up the file. Just double-click directly from the Folder or Open it from Adobe Illustrator.
Image
STEP #2 Copy-Paste Halftones into a Working Artboard: The goal of this step is to get the Halftones into your design so they populate into your Swatches. All you have to do is Copy and Paste them over into the Artboard you are currently working on. The Halftones will automatically populate into the Swatches Panel for use.
Image
STEP #3: Apply Halftone using Basic Fills, Blob Brush, or the Knife Tool. The Halftones will act just like any other Color Swatch. You can simply Select a Shape to apply a basic Fill. If you are new to Adobe Illustrator, I will recommend using the Live Paint Bucket to apply your Flat Color Layer first. The next step will be to duplicate the color layer to apply Halftones.

APPLYING HALFTONES

USING PATTERN FILLS: Pattern Fills are just a normal Adobe Illustrator File, so there is no wrong way to Open the File. Once you have opened the Pattern Fill file, Select the Patterns you would like to bring over to your working document. Simply Copy-Paste the Pattern Fills into your Working Artboard. The Pattern Fills will auto-populate within your Swatches Panel. Simply Click to Use.
USING WITH THE BLOB BRUSH: You can get a similar look with a few different options, but the Blob Brush is really user-friendly. Select the Blob Brush and a Pattern Fill. Adjust the size of the Brush and check the Keep Selected and Merge with Selection in the Blob Brush Options (double click). Just paint in the Halftones with the Blob Brush and the Eraser Tool for cleanup.

Top notch video as usual man. Cheers!Made by Mighty
Thank you, thank you, thank you for all of your tutorials. It's one think to draw on paper, yet another to create artwork directly in Illustrator and yet again a completely different game to take hand drawn work into Illustrator. You've managed to make this process make sense and again, I thank you for your video tutorials, they've been a real godsend.jeremy rozen
