Alright! Upon a very valuable suggestion made by my babeh uport, I got off my lazy arse to make a icon tutorial. This is my first tutorial so...be easy on me. =P

We're going from

this: to this:

Alright, Alright. Let's begin this already, this shouldn't take long. What is it...about 4 steps?...or something like that. Let's get started:

Take this base ((or a base of your own)). With me, this is the base I will be using: .

Take the base and duplicate it two times. One...Two...

Okay. Set the first duplicate to screen at 100%. Set the second duplicate to overlay at 100%.

Good job. :p

Next, make two new raster layers on top of those two duplicates.


Okie doke, fill the first raster with the tanish color #FFF6DD with the flood fill tool. Or you can just copy and paste this:

Set that to multiply at 25%. This baby adds a little color to the skin, so now Ayumi won't be looking so pale. If you want more tan skin you can set it higher than 25%. It ranges depending on the icon.

Anywho, select the last raster layer and fill it with this color: #3AC0E2. Ooooor you can just copy and paste this:

Set that to burn at 100%. and BAM! That's it. Your icon should now be looking like this:


That's it, you're done! Give yourself a pat on the back, you deserve it! =D

Hope you had fun and thank you for reading! Please leave a comment and tell me how you liked it or if you have any problems! I'll do my best to help you.
