tutorial 05  
ok, today we will be making this icon:

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

ok, we'll start off with this base of the beautiful Sandra Bullock:
Image hosted by Photobucket.com
duplicate twice, desaturate both and set the first one, or the middle one, to screen and the second one, the top one, to softlight, flatten and sharpen to your liking.

new layer:
Image hosted by Photobucket.com which comes default wiht PS CS and set it to lighten

new layer:
Image hosted by Photobucket.com set to color burn

new layer:
Image hosted by Photobucket.com texture by ___robotpirate as are the next two, and set it to color burn

new layer:
Image hosted by Photobucket.com set to overlay

new layer:
Image hosted by Photobucket.com set to hard light, and I erased the bit on her face.

new layer:
Image hosted by Photobucket.com use the selection tool and select a small rectangualr spot and flood fill with black

new layer:
Image hosted by Photobucket.com brush from 100x100_brushes
if you know who made it, please tell me<33

new layer:
now, for this one I'm going to use a BUNCH of different brushes at once, all in white:
Image hosted by Photobucket.com <--- THIS IS NOT A TEXTURE.
please make your own brushes on one layer, I've seen a lot of people just copying and pasting it on their icon, that's NOT why I made it.
brushes by: inxsomniax, azn_girl,crumblingwalls and 100x100_brushes.

new layer:
Image hosted by Photobucket.com set to screen, by colorfilter

then, add text if you like, I chose to leave mine textless, and TA DA!!
now, my onlt rule is PLEASE PLEASE don't copy this tutorial exactly, it's meant to guid you and give you ideas.
have fun, and feel free to use the icon if you like, but please credit:D

That was my shot at it. I didnt use some of the brushes because of the original base differences, though.

I used to have PSP about a year ago and I think it's just burn.. I'm not really sure.

A beautiful tutorial that I have added to my memories! I love how you make the icon busy without overloading it, and I love the idea of placing several brushes on one layer. Thank you so much! ^_^

Annissaannissa on August 18th, 2005 06:13 am (UTC)
GREAT tutorial. I roughly followed it and made this:
bent and broken

It's of Chad Butler (Drums) and Jon Foreman (singer/songwriter/guitarist) from Switchfoot and says "bent and broken"- lyrics from one of their songs.
Thanks again!

But I did kinda change it up :3
