How to turn this: into this:
Using PSP 9. Easily translatable.
To begin, I'd like to state that I do not want anyone copying this tutorial with the same screencap and then posting it. I don’t mind following the tutorial exactly to get a feel for the colouring and such, that’s how we learn and then adapt to new things. But if I see this exact icon reproduced, I will not be pleased at all. If you're going to copy it, I don’t mind, just use a different screencap. Thankyou.
For the first portion on the tutorial, I used a colouring method from this tutorial by mareliz
----here start qtmjbcs's tutorial.
First, I cropped my image, as you do, to get this:
Then I duplicated the image 4 times, and set each duplicate to screen.
Your image should look like this:
Then, underneath the top screen layer, I made a new layer and floodfilled with #011537 and set to exclusion.
Then I duplicated that layer. Your image should look like this:
Now, select all (ctrl+A), and copy merged (ctrl+shift+C) then paste your merged icon on top of all existing layers. Set it to softlight.
Now, below your top layer, but above all other layers flood fill a new layer with #a4ddf4 and set it to burn.
-------here end qtmjbcs's part in the tutorial. Thanks to her!!
Now, beneath your softlight layer, floodfill a new layer with #949494. Set it to burn, and duplicate it. Set the duplicated layer to 40%.
And we have:
Now, we move into colour adjustment and other interesting things like that.
Go to layerNew adjustment layerCurves.
Set the values to the following.
Now go into layerNew adjustment layerColour Balance
Set the following.
And that’s it! Youre done!
Your layers palette should look like this:
