My FIRST Icon Tutorial!!!  
This tutorial was made in PS CS2. It's very easy and I think it is translatable.


We're going to go from Image and video hosting by TinyPic to Image and video hosting by TinyPic

{Before we start the tutorial I want to give you all a heads up to that you might have to mess around with which colors you use depending on your base. So you might not want to follow this tutorial word for word and experiment with the Color Balance and other tidbits.}

1* Pick your base. Resize it. You can sharpen it if you want to.
2* Go to Layer>New Adjustment Layer> Color Balance
- Midtones : +22, +11, +12
- Highlights: -4, -2, +27
- Shadows: +5, +9, +26
{The blending should be at Normal}
3* Add one more Color Balance layer
- Midtones: +32, -10, +16
- Highlights: -29, +5, -12
- Shadows: -8, 0, +16
4* Add this color  (  #dda7c4  )  as your top layer and set it to soft light.
5* Add this color  ( #9ddc53  ) as your top laster and set it to soft light.
6* Add this color ( #b88f82 ) as your top later and set it to soft light.
7* Duplicate your base layer, set it as your top layer and set it to soft light.
8* Duplicate the layer you just turned to soft light again. It should automatically be soft light so you don't have to change the blending.
9* Add this grunge texture by
blimey_icons and set it to screen.  (If you want a little less lighting set it to lighten)
