Hey, so I just recently got photoshop and I've been trying to work on this graphic by making it a halftone. But whenever I watch and follow along on a youtube video it never ends up looking the right way.

 

The picture with the hand is the picture that I am currently trying to halftone.

The picture with the shirtless dude is how I want the hand to look like when its halftoned.

 

Please give me any advice/tips thanks. bggb.jpgIMG_8949.jpg

Well, I've seen countless videos, and all of them have different methods whether it's using the halftone feature under the filter gallery or the bitmap menu.

I just want to know what option would be the best to make it look like the image I'm trying to get to.

Good news is that there is no "Best". Using a program like photoshop, you will have many different ways to approach specific effect you want. Having a single "best" is actually very limiting in the creative process. 

 

But, you are going to have to learn how to use these tools and play around with them to understand how they work and if they can fit your needs. I would be suprised that one of the tutorials that come up here would not get you to where you want.

Ok, so at first I turned the picture into a grayscale then I went into the bitmap settings and turned it into a bitmap.

It didn't turn out well but after playing around for a few hours, I came up with a solution of sorts.
