Icon Tutorial  
today we are going from
this: to this:

Photoshop CS2
selective colouring and curves
not transferable

SO start off with your base and make a new layer and fill it with f2e4d0 and set it to Soft Light 10%

Now go to Layers>New Adjustment Layer>Selective Colour.

Cyan: -20
Magenta: +11
Yellow: +30
Black: +20

Cyan: -75
Yellow: +8

Cyan: +22
Yellow: +3
Black: -10

Your icon should look like this now

Now add another Selective Colouring Layer (Layers>New Adjustment Layer>Selective Colour.)

Cyan: -53
Yellow: +30

Cyan: -75
Yellow: +8

Cyan: +22
Black: -10

Your icon should look like this

Okay now curves. Layers>New Adjustment Layer>Curves.


Now your icon should look like so!

Okay now we are going to add ANOTHER Curved layer. Layers>New Adjustment Layer>Curves.


Your icon should look less blue now

Now we are going to add another Selevtive Colouring Layer (Layers>New Adjustment Layer>Selective Colour.)

Cyan: -88
Magenta: +12
Yellow: +20

Cyan: +10


With this tutorial it's really best if you fool around with it. This tutorial was made for this picture and might look like CRAP on other pictures. Have fun with tweaking it:D

I don't seriously get how to use curves. :(
it just backfires on me every time i try it [curves, i mean.]
Winona: ophelialocal_girl808 on February 2nd, 2008 08:16 am (UTC)
What are the numbers for the curves? I can't seem to figure out how to do it by picture.

same... The numbers would be a real help.
