First post here

Today we are going to do X Japan avatar. *dancedance*

From this: to this

It's right here. Under the cut.
 I use Adobe Photoshop 7.0.

Okay, here is the pic i used

1. Now. Open the pic you wanna use. Crop it in size 100 x 100 px. Here is my results.

 You can sharpen it if you want. Go to Filter > Sharpen > Sharpen. I didn't sharpen it, cause, it look good like that.

2. Duplicate the layer and set it Screen mode

3. Make new layer and fill it with  #081245 Set it at Exclusion mode


4. Make new layer and fill it with  #9FC4E1 Set it at Soft light


5. Make new adjustment layer. Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Hue/Saturation

Set Saturation at + 34 ( this depends on your pic. )

6. Now add this texture by sanami276  and set it  screen mode. And here is the results.



Here is my layers:

Don't mind at that random blue layer over the adjustment layer. It's nothing :3

Hope you like it :3 And sorry if the language is bad >,<
