  • That's actually a good path. Simply looks like you need to reduce as much of the mid-tones as you can first.

  • Note that (regardless of the method chosen to make the patterning) after you boost the contrast to get rid of the mid-tones as Scott suggests, you might want to then mask or paint out areas that you are not interested in having in the final image

It's not a halftone. It's a dither pattern.

You can use software such as GIMP or Photoshop to do something similar. Convert the image to Greyscale mode, then convert to Indexed mode, set the number of colours to 2. Use one of the colour dithering patterns. The example below was done in GIMP.
