Hi, I don't really use LiveJournal but I created this account a long time ago just for fun...I am more active on MySpace or my own site: http://viiki-world.net

So yeah, just wanted to say that. Later.

Also, that's the reason that I am using a template for my LJ...I didn't even bother lol.

Icon Tutorial #1

mood: accomplished

My very first tutorial, I hope it's alright. I don't know if I will be making anymore for awhile. But do enjoy!

Made in PSP XI
Translatable (cuz no effing selective colors)
-Color Balance
-Curves
-Hue/Saturation/Lightness

Pretty easy.




1. First, grab an image from anywhere you want. In my case, I got it from EvannaLynchOnline.com. Then you crop it to 100x100.




2. Duplicate your base layer, drag it to the top and set it to screen 20% opacity. Duplicate your base layer again, drag it to the top and set it to softlight 30% opacity.



3. Create another layer. Flood fill with #d8f6fc. Set to Burn.



4. Go to Layers > New Adjustment Layer > Hue/Saturation/Lightness. Change the following saturations.
Master: 0
Red: 65
Yellow: 15
Greens: 0
Cyans: 50
Blues: 45
Magentas: 5



5. Duplicate the adjusted layer and set it to Overlay 20% Opacity.



6. Go to Layers > New Adjustment Layer > Color Balance and do the following settings.
Midtone:
15, -10, 35
Shadows:
-20, 0, -10
Highlights:
-20, -5, 15

Preserve luminance checked. Set this layer to 70% Opacity.



7. Go to Layers > New Adjustment Layer > Brightness/Contrast and do the following.
Brightness: 10
Contrast: -10

Set this to Hue (Legacy)



8. Go to Layers > New Adjustment Layer > Curves and do the following.
Red:
Input: 78
Output: 58

Green:
Input: 80
Output: 79

Blue:
Input: 150
Output: 161

Set this layer to Color 50% Opacity.



9. Duplicate base layer, drag it to the top and set it to Screen 36% Opacity.



10. Duplicate base layer again, drag it to the top and set it to Softlight this time, at 55% Opacity. Go to Layers > Merge > Merge All (Flatten) then you are all done!



11. Add brushes, textures, texts, anything you like! Here's what I added, although it's not that great.



Other icons made with the same affects.


Leave comments and show me how you guys did! Thanks.

Testing, testing, testing...okay. I am confused now. Bye.

EDIT

Anyway, I heard about Live Journal six or seven years ago but I never made one. Now, I made one but I don't think I will have the time to manage it and code it to make it all nice and personal. It's just gonna be like this for a while. I don't really have the time to explore and try to find ways to code the layout and all that jazz. So yeah.
