Now we will add some halftone brushes to the letter “P”. Go to your original layer “P”, make a selection from it. Create a new layer and grab your Brush tool. I’m using #000000, place your halftones on your letter as shown in the image below.

It is fantastic Ashlee. thank for your efforts

Anna

Nice tutorial, thank you!
Just a couple of suggestions:
1. Save Layer styles for the step 28 (I don’t know, maybe it’s just being assumed?), in order not to apply all the effects manually.
2. For the step 32, instead of repeating step 29 we could just save selection earlier and then load it.
Thank you, it was a very informative tutorial!
