Squeee. First Icon Tutorial. Meh, I dunno if anyone else does, but I like the colors. xD Mostly from me experimenting w/ Curves & Selective Coloring. Anyways, here it is!:

Go from to



Find your image. Crop, resize to 100x100. This is my base:


Duplicate your base and set it to screen. I set my opacity to 44%, but it depends on your image.
Next, #F5C499 on softlight, 56%
New exclusion layer, #010424 at 100%
New Color Burn layer, #DCEAFA at 100%.

Now Comes the selective colouring:
Layer -> New Adjustment Layer -> Selective Color

REDS
Cyan: -26
Yellow: +66

YELLOW
Cyan: +15
Yellow: +48

NEUTRAL
Cyan: -12

New Curves layer:
Layer -> New Adjustment Layer -> Curves

RGB
Point One: 166, 189
Point Two: 46, 38

RED
Point One: 166, 183
Point Two: 43, 24

Finally, duplicate your base and bring it to the top- set it to softlight @ 40% (again it may vary on your image)

Finished Product:

Hope I did it alright. I'd love to see what you came up with! Hope you found this useful! ^^

In case you haven't checked the community, there was a week extension at blackpearl_lims so you now have until 10PM or later tonight to get your icon in. If you fail to submit an icon, one of your skips will be used.
