Icon tutorial

This is a tutorial to turn this:

into this:

1] choose am image, for my icon i have chosen this image of Brody Dalle

2] Duplicate the image, set the duplication to "overlay" 90%

3] for the colorizing, i used this little image i quickly made, set it on top of my layers and set it to color 60%

this is what i have so far;

4] take the texture below, and set it to hard light 50%

5] Now open this texture amnd set it to Hard Light 53%

this is what i have so far:

6] Add any bushwork and text you may like, and you have your finishes product :)

This is my finished product, i hope you are happy with yours :)

love the icons! the tutorial didn't really work for my pic, so you might want to add a part that says to mess with the opacity's if your picture doesn't look right. i guess mine was just darker or something, but messing around a bit, i got it to look awesome. love the textures and stuff!

if you want to see the icon i made, its the blake lively one at www.xanga.com/seasidexxdesigns

please, if you want, leave a comment there telling me what you think.
