(no subject)

Hey, so I've gotten a lot of great tips and stuff from this community but it's now time that I ask a question. Where, if it's possible, can I find some tips and tutorials for making amazing icons out of animated films and cartoons. Most of the tips and tricks I've picked up here are for live action type things (people, stock).

I've tried interest searching for the past few days with no real luck. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. :) I'm really looking for Disney/cartoon related things versus anime but even those would be appreciated in steering me in the right track. Thanks so much, in advance.

Icon Tutorial Three ft. Katy Perry




Program: PSPX2
Steps: 6 or 7
Difficulty: 5/10
Includes: Optional Channel Mixer
Suggestions: Deep blues and magenta are the best colors for rich colored icons. Oranges and greens with the optional step create the best overall finished product if you choose to use it. Watch out for the saturation layer because the skin of your "model" might become overly-saturated and have the appearance of an extremely bad tan...
Translatable?: Yes
Examples under the cut: Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy and Nightmare of You
