Icon Tutorial Five Ft. Lady Gaga




Program: PSPX2
Steps: 6
Difficulty: 7/10
Includes: Channel Mixer, High Pass Sharpen
Suggestions: Blues and turquoises=major saturation, be careful with blacks and the exclusion layer because the color could turn out pink. Pictures with bright red turn out pretty well too :]
Translatable?: Yes??
Examples under the cut: More Lady Gaga

Step One: Crop your image to 100x100, sharpen if needed, etc.


Step Two: Duplicate your base layer, Adjust->Sharpness->High Pass Sharpen
Settings
Radius: 15.00
Strength: 46
Blend Mode: Hard Light

This step is optional. It intensifies the image a bit more, you can mess with the settings, duplicating the high pass sharpened layer looks good as well.
