I made my first ever tutorial, because someone requested one for how I made these icons... anyways, here's the icon I'll be showing you how to create:

( Tutorial over here! )

This is my first tutorial ever, so let me know if I should fix/clarify anything...

I realized I've been in this community for a few days and haven't properly introduced myself ;)
I'm Jerri...and I'm an icon-whore. LOL. I take with asking of course, but to me, icons are like jewelry for your livejournal. I have made a few simple...boring ones, but I'm interested in finding out how to make nicer more creative ones. So any thing would help tons! Thank ya!

I'm using PSP7.

my question is when i crop stuff the background color goes along the edge. I make it "null" in the color pallette, but it doesnt show null up top that shows the colors on the palette.

is there a way to stop that?

thanks in advance.

Can someone tell me how to get the type of coloring (like on my icon). Is it in brightness/contrast. How do I get that "old-fashioned" or whatever effect. I'm using PSP7. Or something like this:

Ok, I was doing a tutorial one day... or rather today, when I started playing around with my brush settings and whatnot I clicked this button:

And I started tinkering around in there....

I clicked on browse and tried to get PS brushes from another folder, but I made the stupid mistake of deleting the location of where all my other brushes were at that I had imported. I do have the brushes that I threw in the 'Brush' folder but not the ones I directly exported through PSP. Can someone PLEASE tell me where the folder is where the directly exported brushes are?! If you help me I'll give you free E-cookies!

Comments on icons.

I hope this is allowed in here. It's somewhat (but not entirely) related to icons, so... just answer it anyway. *grins* Please?!

Does anyone know of an active community where people (especially novice icon makers) post some of the icons that they've made and other more experienced icon-makers tell them whether it is good or bad/how they can improve on their work? I know that we can ask questions about icons here, but I was wondering if an actual community existed for the aforementioned purpose.

Thanks for your time, anyhow. ;)

IM trying to use color in my Adobe photoshop but its turning everything i touch into grey! When i click the color i'll show up in the color box, but when i use my brushes, it will become grey and so the paint from the "brush" is grey! WHAT GOIN ON!?!? *freaking out!*
