Bright and Burnt Blue Colouring

Go from:

--> 

in seven (7) easy steps!

* used Photoshop
* fully translatable

1.    Duplicate your base, and sharpen if necessary.  Set to Screen 30%
2.    Create a new layer, and fill with a light red/dark salmon like #FA595C and set to Luminosity 20%
3.    Create a new layer, fill with black and set to Colour Burn 10%
4.    Duplicate your base, drag it to the top, desaturate and set to Soft Light 50 – 60%
5.    Create a new layer, and fill with light blue #B7E8FE set to Darken 50%
6.    Create a new layer, fill with blue-grey #A3B9CF and set to Multiply 10%
7.    Create another new layer, and fill it with light blue #E4F2FF and set to Linear Burn 20%

This is my take on the ever-so-popular burnt blue look, haha.  A bit different, but whatever.  I find that this colouring works best on closeups of people (like Lady GaGa!) or something with a really strong focus. 

If you want a more intense blue, I suggest increasing the opacity on the Luminosity, Darken or Linear Burn layers.

Here are my results with other icons:

   

Hope you enjoy it!
