I'll give this a try, this looks like what I want.
Thanks so much, I was going a bit crazy haha. But still wondering if there's a way to create a curved halftone pattern without using warp or 3d revolve. I tried using the blend tool in Illustrator, but the spacing and duplication looked odd. Anyway, I'll give this a try and post it, maybe it'll help someone with a similar issue.

You can do this with the Transform effect. You will need to apply two separate instances of the Transform effects to achieve this. Here are screenshots that show an experiment I did with it. Use the settings I have here to replicate it.
First, draw a dot. Then use these settings in the Transform effect to replicate it by however many dots you want. Make sure to check the preview box to see whats happening as you work;
Then apply the Transform effect again but with these settings (it will ask you if you want to apply another instance of the effect - say yes ☺
The second instance creates the mutliple rows.
You can then use a Clipping Mask or the Crop tool to make this into the Shape you want and finally color your artwork.
