Does anyone know how to achieve the colouring like in the icon below?
I use Photoshop 7. Thanks!
How i made this icon?
A lot of people asked me about it, these new style and how I choose the brush, crop, texture, text.... I´ll try to help but forgive me if I make any mistake! English isn´t my primary language.
*To understand this tut, you have to know the basic about PS, ok? But feel free to ask me anything!
Using: PHOTOSHOP CS2, Textures, brushes, blend mode, selective colours (optional).
I think this might be a repeat; but I really don't want to go searching through the hundreds of tutorials I have on the 5 bookmarked pages of tutorials I have under my favorites, nor do I want to search pages of this community for the answer.
Sooo.. on to my question. Normally, to make an icon pretty, I either use textures or use the base and use different layer modes to make it look real nice.
But now, I'm kind of getting off of textures and wanting to make icons pretty without them.
Like I start with this picture:

And make this icon normally:
(Yes, that is an icon made by me XD)
But I want to do something more (with the colors) like this or these
Would any coloring tutorials help, or do I need to take my own screencaps for the images to come out better? (Cause I can take my own screencaps; though sometimes the coloring isn't always that much better than the ones I find on firebender.com or avatarspirit.net; it all depends on the episode)
Or do you think it'd just be best how to ask the creator of those icons?
