Icon tutorial #3


Program: Photoshop 7.0
Difficulty: Moderate (requires a basic knowledge of PS and blending. Might be a tad difficult for beginners)
Translatable: Should be, for most version of PS
NOTE: I will not be going over my method of coloring as much for this icon as it is not nearly as important as the blending and other aspects. I WILL provide tips, but I will not give specifics, as this is not a coloring tutorial.

Any tips/tutorials for achieving the 2nd icon would be immensely appreciated. It is a beautiful icon.

ETA - I am using Photoshop.

ETA2: Ok, I played around a bit and got something like this [for the 2nd icon]:

I'm getting there I think.
