Two full icon tutorials and one list of 'quick tricks' for PS7

A few members of my icon journal encouraged me to write some icon tutorials, and I obeyed. These are for Photoshop 7 users, and are mainly aimed at beginners, and so therefore may not be of use to everyone. But hopefully someone will find them helpful!

Tutorial One is for this icon:



( Tutorial One )

Tutorial Two is for this icon:



( Tutorial Two )

I've also compiled a list of quick tricks for beginners, showing the methods I've used in many of my icons (and examples):

( Blurred background effects )

( Brushes as background effects )

( Adjusting brightness, contrast and saturation )

( Variations - adding a 'colour wash' to an icon )

( Rainbow effects (gradients) )

( Text effects )



All the icons are shareable if anyone is that way inclined. :)
