just a cool new tut!

This is my first icon tutorial. One of many I hope to come! Also, I use PSP 9 but it's easy for beginners and any program i think.

Go from Image hosting by Photobucket to Image hosting by Photobucket or Image hosting by Photobucket

i used this picture:

then cropped it down to get this:

Image hosting by Photobucket

Then you can sharpen it. I did once. Sometimes twice.

Then I pressed Shift + B. Which lets you lighten and contrast. I set it as Lighten 4, Contrast 19.

and got this:
Image hosting by Photobucket

Then I duplicated it and set the top layer to disaturate at 68.

And got this:
Image hosting by Photobucket

Then last step is just to add this gradient to multiply at 100% Image hosting by Photobucket

Then just merge all together and your done. Just add some text to it if you want. Also, for the more brighter one you just do the shift + B again and set it to your liking. I hope this tut was cool for you guys.
