October is well-known not only for its cozy autumn atmosphere and pumpkin season but also for Halloween! Let’s celebrate together by creating this cheerful Jack O’Lantern from a vector pumpkin.

In this Pop Art Vector tutorial we are going to learn how to recreate the illustration style used for Pop Art. This type of illustration is taken from a printing process named “Ben-Day dots“.

To create this pop art vector effect, we’re going to be using custom patterns and experimenting with different color combinations to achieve a truly pop art effect for our avatar. Lastly we are going to learn how to keep a pop art style consistent in your avatar no matter the image size. Let’s begin! 🙂
