2 in 1 color tutorials

TUTORIAL: Color tutorial number 7

I got two tutorials for you today. Ok, it is only one, but you get different results when leaving some things. Made in Photoshop 7.0
color layers, curves, saturation, color balance, selective color, textures

Icon tutorial: Max Changmin of DBSK (Coloring techniques, mainly)

Yay, my first tutorial! Made in CS2, and doesn't use selective coloring, but it does use hue/sat layers and brightness/contrast layers. Which are in the same place as selective coloring. :S It's more than likely translatable to other PS programs, but I'm not sure about anything other than Adobe.

I tried to make it as understandable as possible, but if you have any questions I'll be sure to answer them. I'd rate this a little over beginners, and it's fairly image heavy (sixteen 100x100 pics? :S)

mutane_kurosaki wanted to know how I made this icon of Max Changmin from Dong bang Shin Ki, so I'm going to show you all:

Unfortunately, I didn't save my .psd file with all my layers, but I'm going to try and recreate it the best I can. All of the icons from this particular batch used the same basic style of coloring and such, so let's hope I can do it. \o/
