Let’s begin with the tutorial-

Step 1

Create a new document and draw 4 different basic shapes with the help of shape tools. I have drawn a rectangle, circle, polygon and star.

Step 2

Now select one shape and click on Effect in the Menu Bar and place the cursor on Pixelate and then select Color Halftone.

After selecting Color Halftone a dialogue box will appear with default settings of the pixel radius and angles. You have to change the pixel radius and angles of every shape to see the result of different radius and angles.

For the rectangle shape I am setting the pixel radius to 30 and angles to 45 degree.
