Thanks in advance.
Thanks in advance.
For example, I made this icon earlier:
but when you compare it to this icon made by italian_jewels, you can see that the text on her icon is much more clear:

If that didn't make sense...what I'm saying is this:
I'm usually able to fill in a layer with a different color without having to make a new layer. Like if I had a blue layer and I wanted to see how the icon would look with another color, I'd just fill over it and the layer would now be filled with my foreground color. But now, for some reason, whenever I try to fill over a color, the two sort of "mix" and I get a completely different color than my foreground...get it? =/

Here's another example of what happens. I opened a new, transparent 100x100 icon. On the background layer, I filled it with #C9CEE1. Picture
I changed my foreground color to #66B360 and filled the background layer in with that color. Now my icon is a medium-dark purple, not the light green it is supposed to be. Picture
For the background layer to be #66B360, I have to fill the layer with #C9CEE1. Picture
And, just now, I filled in a layer with white and filling it AGAIN with white turned it black. Sp, the colors don't mix...they're inverted, I guess.
What is going on with my PS7? =(

It's not to so visible on this icon but sometimes when I use different fill colors it gets very sharpened and "edgy" around the person.
I've tried to smooth or smudge it but it wont work and just looks weird. Someone that has the same problem? Or at least knows what you can do about it? Or do I just have to live with it? ;)
I'm a beginner when it comes to coloring and I would really love a few coloring tips. I just can never choose the right combination of color layers and was wondering if there is any method you guys follow.
Plus- I once saw an icon that had extremely bright, vibrant colors but was still smooth. If anyone knows how to do that, please do tell!
Finally, whenever I use something like curves or color balence, the picture loses some of its smoothness. Anybody know what I'm doing wrong?
Thank you so much!
but I dont understand how to use GIMP!
can somebody please help me in figuring it out...
at least partially explain it???
i would love you forever :D
thanks in advance

How have they achieved the colouring on the face?
and where can I get light textures similar to the one used on the icon?

Ok. I'm in no way calling myself an expert. There are far better makers out there than me! I'm just offering what I think works and what doesn't. I'm going from observation and from past failures in my own text icon making. I use Photoshop terms, but I'm sure most are the same program-wide.
MAKE SURE YOUR RESOLUTION IS SET TO 72 PIXELS/INCH. Otherwise the sizing will be messed up.
Move on to the second part, animation.
