How To Create a Retro Style Cartoon Character Illustration (+ FREE Halftone Brushes!)



In today’s Illustrator and Photoshop tutorial I’m going to take you through the process of creating a mid-century illustration, complete with distressed print effects. I’ll show you how to achieve the visual traits that give the artwork the appearance of a retro matchbook print, such as the use of limited colours, halftone shading, misregistration effects, and the all-important old paper texture that turns the clean and crisp vector illustration into a nostalgic cartoon that is full of character!
