It is fairly easy, and with curves. Done in PSP 8.
If you're going to use any of my gradients or textures, please credit me when you do so. Same if you're going to use the icon.
Thanks for looking! Remember, this tutorial is just a guide to help you in your iconing endeavors. Don't just recreate the icon -- use it to learn new techniques!
3 new tutorials! Simple, without curves! they just mess up the picture :)
