Katekyo Hitman Reborn Icon Tutorial

Honestly, I am not too amazing w/ icons but I couldn't resist. I made it in preparation for my graphics release this weekend (look out for it ;]).

I promise, my next tutorial will be much more amazing. XD

Turn into


Tools Used: Photoshop CS4
Translatable: Yes (minus one selective color layer)
PSD: YES



This tutorial works best with images with lots of blue & little reds.

One.
Choose an image with lots of blue/whites/blacks & little reds. I chose this image of Squalo from Katekyo Hitman Reborn.



Two.
Duplicate your base & set it to Soft Light 100%. [Repeat if your image is too dark]



Three.
Go Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Hue/Saturation. Saturation = +53.



Four.
Go Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Color Balance. Enter in:

Midtones: -100 -21 +100
Shadows: -33 0 -15
Highlights: 0 0 -4

& set to SOFT LIGHT!



Five.
Go Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Curves. Enter in:

Output: 134
Input: 120



Six.
Go Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Brightness/Contrast.

Brightness: -5
Contrast: +11



Seven.
Go Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Levels.

Levels: 0 0.80 255



Eight.
Place this gradient over your icon & set it to Color Burn 50%



Nine.
FOR PHOTOSHOP USERS ONLY!Go Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Selective Color.

Yellow: +1 0 +100 0
Cyans: +100 -29 -21 +11
Whites: 0 0 0 -25
Blacks: 0 0 0 +4



Ten.
Paste this textures by unknown over the image. Set to Screen 100%. Because I didn't want to cover Squalo's face, I only used a portion of the image.



Eleven.
Paste this texture by unknown. Set to Screen 100%.



Twelve.
Paste this Texture. Set to Lighten 100%.
