Here's 2 tutorials, i wanted to post.
Both of these tutorial i have for you all should work
in ps and psp
tutorial #001 ft. JB
*VERY LONG TUTORIAL*
This step is very simple all you have to do is
make your icon and do whatever it to.
Now we will be using this light pink color
#FF40DD set to soft light around 17 %
you can change the setting if need be
we shall be using a light green color,
#C8FF79 set to saturation at 10 you can change
lower or higher if you want to.
the color we using is a light brown creamish color
#F2E4D0 set to soft light at 30 this should lighten up
your icon a little.
your going to be thinking right now COLOR AGAIN GRRR lol
this color we using is a very bright/light pink color #ECAAC4
set to soft light at 20%
Time for some curves!
there will be 2 points in this one so i hope you
don't mess this up.
input and output are both
curves again lol i promise just one more curves left
and just one point this time.
now i promise this is the last color we will ever use in this first part of the tutorial
This color we are using is a cream color
# F9D9C1 set to soft light at 28%
now for some hue/sat
Sat at +15
Make sure hue and lightness are at 0
yes finally the last time i bet your all are glad this is done
and like i promised this is the last curves.
now go you your curves and make sure you enter these
your all done well at least for tutorial #1 lol
So i don't want to be mean and normaly people do these long tutorials and never
give you a .psd but i know you don't want to spend like a billion hours like did well
guess what i have a .psd for you make sure you credit me if you give it to anyone.
tutorial #002 ft. Jensen Ackles & Jared Padaleki
This is the coloring i used on the gossip girl icons
& on those Supernatural ones btw.
get your screen cap and make your icon.
and then do whatever to it lol.
some may not need to do this only do this step if your using
a dark image but with light images it's fine.
Duplicate base and set to screen at 30%
This is the only curves you will use in this.
this should light up your image with dark and non dark.
Only color you will use in this tut.
we will be using a bightish green color
# 15ED0A set to saturation at 15%
i'm letting you know that it may look kinder eh on some
screen captures so you may need to change the percent around about 10%
last step everyone!
time for some color balance, this should bring some color
to skin etc.
Shadows: +5, -7, -13
