Looking for a tutorial

Can someone please help me find this tutorial?
I found it on here, I'm pretty sure. I really would
like to have the brushes and texture included in
the tutorial, as I lost all my brushes on my old
computer and am starting fresh. I made this icon
using the tutorial. Oh, & I have looked through
the archive, quite a few times, with no luck.

Can anyone help? It'd be greatly appreciated.

Black and White Icons

Hey guys. I've taken a look around but I haven't been able to find anything. I have a black and white picture I want to icon, but I have no idea what I can do to it to make it look pretty. Does anyone know of any b&w tutorials?

I use photoshop cs2 :)


psp x2 help

I don't know if this is allowed here or not but I just got Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo X2. I'm used to working with PSPxi and there are 2 things about this new version that are really annoying me and I was wondering if anyone knew how to fix them.

+ in all the other version of PSP when you resize a picture, the next time you resize it keeps the same settings you had previously. in this new one it reverts back to default 100% each time. is there a way to fix that? i couldn't see anything in the general preferences about it. 

+ is there a way to change the key commands? i'm used to Paste As New Image being CTRL+V and now that (along with CTRL+L) is Paste As New Layer, and Paste as New Image is SHIFT+INS. Is there a way to change this?  

Thanks in advance!

Cropping Advice

Hiya. So I am super new at iconing, and would love some help on cropping photos to make the perfect icons =) Here are some icons I played with earlier... now my colouring and stuff is not brilliant, but like I said, I was just experimenting with ideas. So, I asked people on my lj, and one girl said this...

I just think your cropping needs to be a little tighter and cleaner. I'm a useless icon maker myself so ignore me but they seem a little bit too big and unbalanced for the size of the icon.

What does she mean? I have to let you know that I am registered legally blind, so this stuff is really hard for me, I always end up slicing off important body parts lol, but what does she mean by too big and unbalenced for the icon?
