You may think this icon was made from difficult and confusing steps:
But hey, NO!! I made this less from 10 mins! And if you follow this tutorial, you'll finish in only 5 mins. Okay, just follow these steps. I started from this base:
You may edit your base like desaturate and set to soft light or just set to soft light. Well it's all up to you! So, my base is like that... I added this gradient, which i believe made by Gender, and set to Hard Light.-->
Add this wonderful texture, made by i-don't-know-who, to Hard Light:-->
GRASPPP!!! Scary, huh? Of course! But we'll fix it! Add this texture by Colorfilter and set to Hard Light. It may appear differently because i healed the top white border area. Bit confusing, although it's not that necessary:-->
Time to make Suu more visible. Bring the base to the very top layer and set to Soft Light:--> Better, huh?
And... yayy!! You finished coloring! Now ish the time for the finishing touch. Use Rectangular Marquee Tool and select the area around her eye and hand, create new layer and choose Image> Apply Image. Move them where you'd want:
Create new layer under the copied area, and fill with decorative brush from ~Yumei_K with #91743B and set the layer to Linear Burn 75%:
The last thing, give text. I choosed brushes from ~Yumei_K and mixed the brushes:-->
Well... it's easy, huh? I believe your icons are better than mine. So expand your knowledge! Keep trying with new experiments. If any comments/questions, don't be shy to ask me, email me [email protected] or instead you can using the contact form.
