:: David Wright Tutorial ::

[ 1 ] Start just like you start every other icon. Find the picture, crop, sharpen, or whatever it is you like to do to prep.
[ 2 ] Duplicate your base twice. Set the layer closest to the base to Screen at 100%. set the second base to Soft Light at 23%
[ 3 ] Create a new fill layer with #85BFCB. Set the layer to Soft Light at 46%.
[ 4 ] Create a new fill layer with #0B2F29. Set the layer to Exclusion at 62%.
[ 5 ] Create a new fill layer with #C9B4DC. Set the layer to Colour Burn at 100%.
[ 6 ] Create a new fill layer with #D0C1AC. Set the layer to Multiply at 51%.
[ 7 ] Create a New Adjustment Layer for the Colour Balance. Set it to the following:

Shadow:
-14 (Cyan/ Red)
18 (Magenta/ Green)
-18 (Yellow/ Blue)

Midtones:
-30 (Cyan/ Red)
8 (Magenta/ Green)
-14 (Yellow/ Blue)

Highlight:
-14 (Cyan/ Red)
-23 (Magenta/ Green)

[ 8 ] Create a New Adjustment Layer for the Hue/ Saturation. Set the saturation to 7.
