Alright! 3primoscomgato requested a tutorial for the icon below. So here it is!

We're going from this: to this:

1. First you're gonna crop your base to 100x100 like always. :) Then duplicate your base three times and set them all to screen.

You should have this:

2. Make a new raster layer and fill it with #000036. Set it to exclusion 52%.

You should have this:

3. Make a new raster layer and fill it with #9CD9FF. Set it to burn 100%.

You should have this:

4. Make a new raster layer and fill it with #EFB29C. Set it to overlay 50%.

You should have this:

5. Now you're gonna merge all layers (Flatten). Duplicate your merged base three times. Set the first one closest to the base to screen 20%. Set the second one to burn 100%. Set the third one to softlight 100%. Then you sharpen it. And we're done!

You should have this:

If you have any questions please ask! Oh and of course I got this idea from this wonderful tutorial! :) I simply left out a lot of steps and changed it around a bit.

You're welcome!! I'm glad you like it!

Mess around with it a bit and see what works better for you. I'm sorry I don't know anything about that, I use Paint Shop Pro 8, so for me it just says Burn. I'm sorry again that I wasn't of much help, I can help you find tutorials that use photoshop, that way you have a clearer idea of which one to use, I've seen tutorials of photoshop over at icon_tutorial.

Thank you and I hope the tutorial was helpful! :D

Oh no, no worries. When I uploaded it, having settled for colour burn, it was too pale and uncoloured (don't you hate how it looks different when it's uploaded), so I changed to linear burn and upped the saturation, and this icon here is what I'm left with.

Oh wow!! That's what you came up with!! Your result is even better than what I got in the tutorial!! Lol. How awesome!! I love it!! (I know I hate that, it looks so different when you upload it here)

Haha, thanks. That's entirely your doing, because in the end I didn't actually change anything from what you suggested, aside from the saturation. Must be the choice of cap. :)

Thank you!
