I have long been a fan of the halftone effect used in comic books. So naturally I was attracted to Alien Skinís Snap Art. Attached is a graphic made with a combination of Alien Skinís Snap Art and Xara DP Pro 7 (earlier versions will also work). Snap Art isnít free, but you can download a time-limited trial to work with, if this sort of style interests you. The .xar file is also attached so you can examine the effects and how I achieved them in detail (it's not complicated).
