Iconesque Part 6

Iconeque Part 6
Note: The following was created in PS CS4. No guarantees on its ability to be translated.

1. Obtain your base, as is usual at this step.

Yes, it is indeed a Twilight base. I liked the blueness in the movie, but it makes iconing seriously hard.

2. Create a new Color Balance layer, and use the following settings:


3. Create a new layer, and fill it with #fff7ca. Set that layer to Soft Light.


4. Create a new Selective Coloring layer, and use the following settings:
Selective Coloring:

RED
-100 ; +100 ; -100 ; +100

YELLOW
0 ; 0 ; 24 ; 100

GREEN
-100 ; +100 ; -100

CYAN
-100 ; +100 ; +100

WHITE
-100 ; 0 ; 0 ; 0

5. Duplicate your base, drag it up to the VERY top. Desaturate it. Set layer to Soft Light @ 30% Opacity.


6. And for good measure, I took a SOFT edged brush, I believe the size was somewhere around 80, and just clicked once with the color white in the middle-ish of the icon. I then set that layer to SOFT LIGHT.

* Don't copy/paste that image. It will not work correctly on Soft Light




and voila! Totally got rid of that blueness. I think it's purty.
