music: Blue Alice - Ayria

Step1: Choose your icon base
 or
credit to ihearttoronto at DA

Step2: Choose your desired image to be displayed on the TV
*resize if you need to and desaturate (ctrl+shift+u)


Step 3: Paste over TV and set to mulitply for now (change back to normal after cropping)


Step4: Crop around the screen with the polygonal lasso tool


Step5: "select inverse" and delete. Set layer back to normal


Step6: Duplicate layer 5 or 6 times

Step7: On each layer select fliter > noise > add noise
*amount = every layer is different (between 5% - 15%)
* select monochromatic


You can stop here if you like or go on to make it an animated icon...

Step8: In Adobe Image ready add 5 or 6 new frames (depending on how many layers you created)


Step9: Starting at frame 2, deselect layer's visibility and repeat as you change frames and layers
So for frame 3 the top 2 layers won't be visible
and for frame 4 the top 3 layers won't be visible...


Step10: Select all frames and change speed to 0.1 seconds per frame



All done!
Post results please! I love seeing them :)

Selective Colouring Icon Tutorial

Jan. 24th, 2008 | 12:25 am

Go from   to 

Okay this is my first tut so be nice! :D

NOTE: works best with light / light background images.

Step 1: Crop your base and duplicate it. Set to Soft Light 40%


Step2: Selective Color layer:
REDS: -100, +23, +100, 0
YELLOWS: +100, 0, -100, 0
NEUTRALS: +37, +31, -35, - 37


Step3: Selective Color Layer:
REDS: -100, 0, +100, 0


Step 4: Selective Color Layer:
REDS: -40, 0, 0, 0
NEUTRALS: +10, 0, 0, 0


Step 5: Fill Layer with #71E5A2

Set to Soft Light 57%


Step 6:
Add this texture (made by graven_rose)

Set to Multiply 40%
You can erase the parts over the face / main parts with a soft texture brush if you want

Step 7:
Merge all layers (ctrl+alt+e) and copy and paste your image into a new window.
Then resize it to 22pxls by 22 pxls
Drag three copies into your main icon and arrange in a row like so:

Then add a stroke to each mini square (make sure you stroke the inside not the outside)


Step 8: With your first min square, go Image: Adjustments: Hue/Saturation. Then saturate +30
With the second min square, go Adjustments: Hue/Saturation. Then saturate -15
Then with the third mini square, desaturate (ctrl+alt+u)

Add text or mini text if you want!


THE END! Hope you like your results.
