Hair Color Help?

Hey there!

I was wondering if someone could point me to a tutorial or give me some tips on changing hair color in an icon. I wasn't sure what exactly to look under in the memories.

All I need to do is give a streak of green to a character with blonde hair. I have PS7.

Thank you!

Hey everyone!
So I love tutorials, I'm always looking for great new ideas and inspiration. And I thought I'd start sharing my own :) Hope you find it helpful and fun! All I ask is that you don't claim as your own work 'cos that's just not cool… :( Anyway, love to know what you think and to see your results! If you do want to leave me a comment, post it at my personal journal. Enjoy!

Three colouring tutorials

Three tutorials on colouring techniques, using CS3 - Levels, Selective Colour, and Curves are involved at various stages, so I suspect they won't be translateable, alas. I'd say these are intermediate to advanced; I won't be explaining really basic Photoshop terms and concepts here. These ideas can work for many dark or low-contrast images to help brighten them up, but I don't advise punching in exactly the same numbers I've used, because your results will depend on the base you're using. Instead, I'll try to explain what I was aiming for with each step, and you can adapt it to suit your own image. That said, I'd love to see what results you can come up with! I hope this is helpful - let me know if there's anything that's unclear.

Larger Graphic Tutorials...

I want to say that all these people who take their time to post their tutorials for their icons are great! I am always looking for new ways to make my icons look great. I have been recently in the mood to do larger graphics but I want to find some tutorials to make different kinds of larger blends or wallpapers. If anyone has a list of their tutorials or know where I can find them that would be great!
