Full PS icon tutorial

for this icon:



*ok so i have two screencaps (THANK YOU JANE)
x

*combining them i got my base...thsi wasn't blend, just plain
rectangular marquee tool in action, you don't need any extra knowledge
for it


*to brighten it up a bit, i duplicated a LOT of times and set them all
to screen, cept the one on top which was set to soft light and
desaturated

it seems a bit bright but its ok actually

*exclusion layer #0d004c,right underneath the soft light layer


*using the rectangular marquee tool (RMT in future) i selected a bit between teh two images and filled them white


*gradient set to lighten
--->

*gradient, set to multiply
--->

*gradient, color burn
--->

*same gradient set to color 20%
--->

*using teh RMT select the the top and the bottom parts (small) make a new layer and fill with black


*light texture, i think imade it using the brush and teh blur tool, set to screen
--->

and there's the icon.
i added some text tot he original ones, btu be honest it looks awful with text
