How to turn this: Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting into this: Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting



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:
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Then I duplicated the image 4 times, and set each duplicate to screen.
Your image should look like this:
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

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:
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

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.

Lookie:
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

-------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:
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Now, we move into colour adjustment and other interesting things like that.
Go to layerNew adjustment layerCurves.
Set the values to the following.

RGB
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

RED
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

GREEN
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

BLUE
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Looking good:
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Now go into layerNew adjustment layerColour Balance

Set the following.

MIDTONES
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting


SHADOWS
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Ahhh. Nice.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

And that’s it! Youre done!

Your layers palette should look like this:



Photobucket - Video and Image Hostingsoftlight
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting Burn 40%
Photobucket - Video and Image HostingBurn
Photobucket - Video and Image HostingScreen
