2 full-icon tutorials

I was bored, so here are two tutorials for you. These are for Photoshop CS. Both are different muting methods~




1. Start with your base.



2. Sharpen your base. I also blurred the background to make is a little smoother.



3. Take a really bright texture and set it to screen.

4. Duplicate the base and set it to linear burn. Set the fill to anywhere between 35-90%, depending on the darkness of the image (the lighter/brighter the image, the higher you'll want to go). I used 80% on this icon.



5. Create a new layer and fill with #001149. Set to exclusion with an opacity of 35%.



6. Duplicate the base again, desaturate and set to soft light.



7. Create a new layer, fill with #DEC89F, and set to multiply.



8. Create a new layer and fill with a lightish blue gradient. Set to soft light.

9. Create another new layer and fill with a dark blue layer. Set to screen.

10. Add some text, and there you have it!



Other icons made with this technique:

2. Create a new layer and fill with #010924. Set to exclusion.



3. Duplicate the base and set it to soft light.



4. Create a new layer and fill with #C7BB6A. Set to multiply with an opacity of 50%.



5. Use curves to totally wash out your image. Here's an example of what I did. Set it to lighten with an opacity of around 35%.

6. Create a new layer and fill it with a yellow/golden gradient. Set it to multiply with an opacity of 50%, or one that gets you close to this effect.

7. Create another new layer and fill it with a light to dark blue gradient and set to soft light.

8. Create yet another new layer and fill it with a white to color-of-your choice. I used a green in his hair. You want this to be pretty light, so if the color is darker, you'll want to lower the opacity. Set to color burn.

9. Duplicate the base, desaturate, and set it to soft light.



10. Add your extras, and a lovely icon before your eyes.
